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.
This book was surprisingly good and entertaining. I’ve been planning to read this series for a while and I’m so glad that I’ve finally got around to read it. Though it wasn’t a total perfection, but I really enjoyed reading it. Meda is such an awesome character you couldn’t help liking her. When I first read the blurb, I was so excited to read it cause it sounded unique and I really wanted to meet Meda. And boy, she was totally amusing and I think everyone would love knowing her.
Meda is a 17 year old half demon who’s hunger can only sated by eating the soul of a human. Unlike other demons, she only eats the souls of bad guys who totally deserves to die. She was brought up by her human mother who was killed by a demon when she was only 15 years old and she doesn’t know what she really is. After her mother’s death, she’s on her own and her memories of her mother is the only thing that keeps her sane and humanity intact. When Meda is on her hunt for the next meal, she encounters three weird men in suits who are stronger than her and she’s quite astonished to find that they are same like her but more powerful. Meda doesn’t know anything about her kind and she really wants to know everything but it looks like she won’t get any answers because they are kinda want to kill her. Surprisingly, she was saved by a crusader who’s only motive is to kill her kind and he mistakes her for a human. Even if she was failed getting the answers from the demons at least she could get them from the enemy side, the crusaders. So, she pretends to be a human and thought that she could hide her identity until she gets all her answers. Later, she not only learns about her kind but also some shocking revelations about her father’s and mother’s identity.
Meda is absolutely hilarious and snarky as hell. I totally loved her character and I really liked how the author portrayed her. She is one of the best female protagonists I’ve ever read this year. She’s quite different from the other YA female characters because she’s not really a goody-goody character instead she is selfish, Sarcastic and traitorous character who don’t mind being bloody and violent. Chi, Jo and Uri are the other supporting characters that I really enjoyed knowing. Chi(Malachi) is a proud Templar who really does have a hero complex and he easily falls for Meda’s innocent human act or rather damsel in distress act. Jo is a kickass girl who doesn’t easily fall for Meda’s act. She suspects Meda isn’t as innocent as she seems. Few years ago, Jo lost her leg during her fight with a demon and due to her disability she hates herself but it didn’t stopped her from kicking demons butt. At the beginning, Meda and Jo used to hate each other but with time Jo learns to trust Meda and slowly they develop a unique friendship. The friendship between Meda, Jo and Chi was well portrayed in the plot and I really liked it a lot. Besides the hate/love relationship between Jo and Chi, there’s no romance in this book but still it was entertaining and engaging.
The plot was quite good but you can predict how it’ll go if you are already familiar with this genre otherwise it would be completely unpredictable. The first part of the book was slow paced which is the only thing that I didn’t liked in it but the second part totally made up for it. The writing style was really good, it was witty and fun and it’s another thing that I really enjoyed in this book. All the characters are well-written and well-developed, and it’s the best part of the book. If I have to rate Meda’s Character, I would definitely give her 5 Stars.
Overall, it’s a great read. Except for the pacing of the plot, I loved everything in it. Meda is really a wonderful character and I’d really like to know more about her. So, can’t wait to read it’s sequel. I was quite confused about how to rate this book because I really liked this book and I was stuck between 3.5 and 4 but finally I chose 3.5 stars. Honestly, it was really a good book with a hilarious protagonist and I highly recommend this to everyone.
