I like these books ok but not nearly as much as when I was a teenager. Also as an adult I find the age gap between the protagonist and her love interest much more questionable. ( )

Awesome!! Suze is totally not very morale. But, this is what makes her a believable character. She doesn't instantly gives up Jesse but gradually realises that she loves him so much that she can't let him die and live as a ghost. It's not at all selfish, it's just natural. Almost every human being might find it difficult in the position Suze was. So, I just love her character which does not pretend to what she is not. She is selfish and I don't think there is any thing wrong in being selfish than to pretend being all self-rightous. At least her character realises what's best eventually. It's a good kind of character development.
Besides, everything ended fine. So, Cheers!! ( )

This series morphed me into a hyperactive teenage fangirl. ( )

Paul is going to travel back through time (shifters can, which means Suze can, but it's draining and will eventually kill) to stop Jesse from being killed. Suze knows it's because he doesn't want her to have ever met Jesse (he's eliminating the competition) but everyone else, including Father Dom, thinks it's a wonderful act to give Jesse the life he should have had. They both end up back in Jesse's time, and it turns out Paul was making a pre-emptive strike, or so he thought. He though Suze would remove the spirit from his body and put Jesse's into it (another shifter thing) so he thought he could only save himself by saving Jesse.

There's a happily ever after in this book, one that leaves them all in a good place after the series ends. The only problem is it's one I don't so much care about because it was too pat, too easy. ( )

I've decided to properly give each of the Mediator book reviews in anticipation of the seventh installment coming out in February. This book series was the series that made me fall in love with Meg Cabot's writing. Prior to reading it, I had read a couple of Meg Cabot's books but none of them made me think of her as my favorite author. However, all that changed with the Mediator series. I was immediately engaged from page one. I still can remember reading each of the books, exactly when and where I was at the time. For example, I read the first book in a silent airport, after my plane had been delayed time and time again and the area around our section slowly faded until there were few waiting for the one remaining flight. This book, I remember, I read on the bed in my hotel room before falling asleep, completely content with its ending. Twilight is the absolute perfect 'ending' for the Mediator series. I'm not entirely sure how others felt about it, but it was absolutely divine to me. While Remembrance will be coming out soon and continuing Suze's story, I think of it more as a spin-off or companion. The book is the end to the YA section of the book series, whereas Remembrance is the beginning of the adult (kinda like what Meg Cabot did with the Princess Diaries series).

Overall, what I basically wanted to say about this book is that is wonderful in every way and I loved it with all of my heart! ( )
