The girls at Badass Book Reviews discuss our thoughts about this book. Check it out! My review: Cracked by Eliza Crewe literally cracked me up. (Sorry, I just couldn't resist). I adored the main character Meda whose observations of humans and their yappy pets made me chuckle. Picture the voice of an evil genius coming from a pretty young girl and you have Meda. Meda is unique - she is the only one of her kind and her proclivities as a soul eater has led her to have an isolated childhood. Like, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to eat the soul of your best friend, right? Anyhow, all Meda knows is that she eats souls and that she prefers the souls of bad guys:
"I eat what leaves with the soul at the kill. The life. The demons get it from hell, I get it from assholes.
Meda befriends some kids who think that they need to save her. They take her to a Templar school where along with the entire faculty, she battles an army of demons. The battle scenes are intense and action packed. This is a strong start to Ms. Crewe's Soul Eater series. While it is not perfect, the book is well written and will keep you chuckling throughout. I can't wait to read more books by this author.
Once again, another hit from publisher Strange Chemistry who keep on sending me some fantastic books to read.
Thank you to Strange Chemistry for a review copy of this book.
