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. – Goodreads
Hot DAYUUM. I don’t even know where to begin. Meda is a freaking badass?
Meda eats souls. She rips humans apart and eats their souls—think vampire, but minus the blood. She’s inhumanely strong and nearly indestructible. She’s super fast, too.
Things are going great until she’s rescued from a sticky situation by a Crusader, one of the elite who are trained from a young age to hunt and kill demons and halflings.
This book, I can’t even.
First off, it was witty as hell.
Cue innocence! My sweet lashes flutter against my helpless cheeks, my useless hands wring the edge of my guiltless, blood-soaked nightgown. My lovely lips quiver over my pearly white teeth.
Jo isn’t buying…Damn, that gimp bitch is a hard sell.
I was constantly cracking up at the humor. Sometimes it was a little forced and offputting, but for the most part, I loved it.
Second, I loved the characters. Not only was Meda complex—the dynamics between her, Jo, Chi, and Uri is fantastic. They complement each other so well.
The worldbuilding and concept was also great. I could clearly picture everything—dilapidated buildings, the insane asylum, demon headquarters. Even details down to demons in business suits.
Basically I can’t rave enough about this one. Do yourself a favor, go get it. Now. It’s super cheap on Amazon. I rated it a 4.5/5 and added it to my favorites shelf. Love it! On to book two.
