Meet Meda. She eats people.
Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters” around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in suits show up.
They can do what she can do. They’re like her. Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem? They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her ‘kind’ is.
Be careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and trying to keep one step ahead of a too-clever girl are bad enough. But the Hunger is gaining on her.
The more she learns, the worse it gets. And when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her destiny… she may finally give into it.
When you read the blurb for this book you realize that the main character here is different. She is not an angel or damsel in distress, for the matter. She is a kick-ass girl who is standing on a thin ice between good and evil. Sometimes even she doesn't know on which side she is. Because she eats souls. Simple as that. It's her curse, as she is born like that. But she decided not to give up and let the universe do things for her, but to fight instead. And boy, she does a great job. During time she spend fighting and surviving she turned into a badass girl who is not afraid. But being alone and always an outcast developed her sarcasm to the new level. Just a few examples:
But worries are for people who can’t pull grown men apart with their bare hands.
I don’t know if I have a heart, but I get her point – both of them really.
And she doesn’t like me.
Not only this book is action packed and full of unique elements there is also romance, but bare in mind that this is not a love story, like Meda would put it. This is story about a girl who has strong instinct for survival and with all that kickbut abilities. It's a story about demons and those who fight them. It's a war that is upon them. Most of all this is highly entertaining book, which will make you laugh out loud. Trust me, Meda will do that to you.
Besides unique and engaging story this book is also nicely written. I enjoyed all idioms here and it was a pleasure to discover their meanings. Well we can say it's my professional bias, not that I'm a professional - yet.
Rating: 5 stars.
Until the next time,
