Recensione

'A whirlwind adventure that left me laughing, crying, and cheering all at once definitely worth the read and I recommend it to anyone who wants a fantastic fantasy adventure!' --The Thousand Lives

Sinossi

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.

3.0 su 5 stelle Inner monologue hilarious and worth the read but I am also a huge sucker for sarcasm 27 luglio 2016

“So we can’t let them have her.”

YES! YES! YES! I almost dance.

Jo cuts in, alarmed, “But the children…”

Shut up, Jo! There’s more where those came from.

This story is told from the perspective of Meda who is a demon halfling, but with her other half being a templar (demon killer). She is a self-centered, selfish, sarcastic being who is truly concerned for herself and her well being. I love the inner monologue in this story because it is truly what a person only concerned with their own welfare would think. It is so refreshingly honest that it endears me to Meda.

Meda is used to being alone and she is just fine with that, until one night things get a little off track and Meda is confronted by some demons. After getting her butt kicked she is rescued by none other than a Templar trainee (high school kid being taught to be a demon killer) and finds herself in a position of having to dispose of the evidence (trainee) before he realizes what she is. Beyond being a soul eater even Meda does not know what she is.

Chi (the trainee) reads the situation incorrectly and feels that the demons must have been attacking Meda because she is a beacon (demons want to kill) and before Meda can kill him and eat his soul his friends show up. Meda is out numbered and decides that she will not kill Chi but that she will use him as a way to maybe find out the answers to who or what she is. Goes with the saying, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Against his friends advice Chi brings Meda to the local chapter high school under the ruse that Meda is really Emma a cousin who had recently turned her back on being inducted as a templar-in-training. Hmmm, remember those demons that Chi “saved” Meda from? Well they know who Meda is and they did not forget to mention that fact to her daddy…..duhn duhn duuuhhhnn…and well daddy really wants to find his little princess.

"His eyes laugh at me. “You’re a captive of Hell. They’re not big on justice here.” “So, what happens?” I am not sure I want to know. “If you’re lucky, they’ll let you sell your soul and become one of us.” “I’m not easy to boss around.” He shrugs. “That’s only if you’re lucky anyway. If you aren’t….well it’s safer for them to just eliminate the problem.” Maybe I’m easier to boss around then I thought."

I love that quote, we all can talk tough from time to time and our inner voice says “hmmm, maybe not” but we strive to stay tough. I do love this character. The story itself was well written but just really not for me. I thought it was going to be about one thing, a sort of vigilante justice against bad guys, but it turned into a mini-drama “lets find out the answers to who I am” type of storyline. I just felt like it was tied together but I just was not a fan of the bow the author was using.

I did find the inner monologue hilarious and worth the read but I am also a huge sucker for sarcasm. It’s like she was speaking my crack-lacking language and how can I just not love that??

The thing that made be really like this book in one word, Meda.

In terms of a protagonist, she is truly one of a kind really. Meda is calculating, confident, strong, self-aware, unapologetic, caring and loyal. She is survivor and at the start that's all she cares about, her own survival. But things change slowly for her after she meets Chi, Jo and Uri. Despite her efforts otherwise, she grows to care them and treat them as her friends rather than expendable chess pieces. I also love that we get hear her sarcastic comments/thoughts on all the things going on around her. At times her reactions are the same as my reactions and its funny to see her frank comments on paper.

The book is great. Pacing is good, writing is good, the story in some instances is a tad predictable but hey with so many books out there, there are bound to be similarities somewhere. One thing I did really like was that this wasn't really a love story, which is weird because I usually like some romance in the stories I read. Sure there were romantic instances, but Meda never really loved Chi or fought her best friend for him. Obviously there is Chi and Jo's somewhat romance but it really isn't a front and center storyline, though Meda does help play a role in those two finally admitting their feelings.

As for relationships, my favorite one was honestly Meda and Jo. They worked really well as friends and their relationship really did save them both in the end.

All-in-all totally worth the read. I'll buy the other two in the series real soon.

5.0 su 5 stelle Meda Is An Absolute Scream!!! 5 maggio 2014
Di Robin Snyder - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

You’ve read how many different stories about the same nice girl who learns she is special and goes off on a journey to grow into her abilities This is not that story Meda is a monster, she is not a good girl, her sense of morality is borrowed from her mother and at times is very flexible.

-- … there are some people you shouldn’t anger that you don’t know about, because no one ever survived to warn you.
I’m the third kind.
I eat souls.

Meda led a very sheltered life up until the time her mother died. Her mother did the best that she could with the monster Meda was and tried to teach her all the values a human should have, but not everything stuck. Meda’s sense of humor is dark and self-deprecating but hilarious non-the-less. I loved reading her inner dialogue in all situations as she tries to play nice with the humans.

-- Mom only wanted me to kill people who deserved it, and my morality’s flexible enough to toss in self-defense (and everyone know the best defense is a good offense…my morality is almost a contortionist).

She doesn’t know a lot about herself or where she came from but through a few twists of fate she ends up with the people who are trying to kill her kind. When she is discovered by a few members of the Knights Templar she decides to play along and see if she can’t find out any information from the enemy. But as she is playing a dangerous game, if they find out who she is they will probably just kill her.

Chi, is the heroic boy who found Meda and is determined to save her, he is also her best source of information. Meda is not above using a few feminine wiles to separate him from Jo, a girl that definitely likes him and hates her, in order to get that information.

-- Chi likes all the attention, but I can’t help notice his eyes sliding over to Jo when I do something particularly outrageous – like stroke his abs.
Yes I did, and they are amazing.

I loved this book. It was so nice to have a different kind of main character and see her transformation throughout the book as she discovers more about her past. Meda was so funny, she was never pouty or fell apart and some of the best times are when she is disgusted with herself for playing the part of a weaker girl in need of saving, because she is definitely not that.

The story was super-fast paced. It starts out fast and just keeps on going. Fights with Demons, discoveries about who Meda truly is and why she is here and the building of friendships and bonds. There were so many great moments that I loved and the humor really carried throughout. I can’t remember the last time I read a book this fun.

In all fairness there are some heavy moments, but I totally loved the wrap up to the story and I can’t wait to see what happens next. If like me you are tired of most of the YA books out there I recommend you give this one a try. it is so refreshing to read something in YA without a love triangle or relationship angst that is just a great plot and a lot of action.

Review of Cracked (Soul Eater #1)
Rating 5 stars

Normally the Main Character in a book is the good person but not in Cracked. Meda is bad, a monster, but a hilarious monster. I don’t think I have ever laughed so much throughout a book. Meda’s inner dialogue was brilliant and I loved her struggle between being good and bad.

Here are a few parts I took from book:

I consider the many tools at my disposal, eyeing his large blood-splattered frame, and settle on my weapon of choice – one so infrequently used I need to dust it off first.
My eyes fill with tears. “Wha–” I swallow hard “– what were those things?”
“Demons.” Thanks, Einstein. I got that part. I let a tear trickle over.
He hurries to reassure me. “Don’t cry – I’ll protect you.”
Humiliating. Absolutely humiliating.

****

❝ A small girl, still young enough to suffer the indignity of pigtails, holds out a dead goldfish in her cupped hand.
Thanks, but I just ate.
"My fish died," she lisps around missing teeth. She looks at me expectantly.
Ah - catastrophe has struck and she's in search of an adult to handle it. (...) Fortunately, I know just how to handle this one.
"Flush it down the toilet."
(...)
What? It's a fish. ❞

****
"There are some people you know you shouldn’t anger because it isn’t right. Like your mom – if she’s the nice sort.
There are other people you know you shouldn’t anger because they have the authority to punish you. Police officers, politicians, insane asylum wardens, your mom – if she’s the bad sort.
But there are some people you shouldn’t anger that you don’t know about, because no one ever survived to warn you.
I’m the third kind.
I eat souls.

The Secondary Characters where just as valuable to the story. My favourite been Jo, she was so angry at the world that it gave Meda so much ammunition for hilarious smart commentary (That went on inside her head) it had me laughing so hard. Uri was sweet, he was a kid who got to hang out with superman - superman being Chi. It was cute.

Overall the story captured me not for its plot or world building but because of Meda and her inability to feel compassion for others. Just hilarious. If you want a fun read that will make you laugh and smile then cracked is the one for you.

Demons, Templars, ghosts. Ancient warriors that still fight the battle of good and evil to this day through modern humans, half humans and others... I found this story through a friend, although hers was a review of the third book so I immediately found the first, Cracked. It took me about three seconds to convince myself to buy the book which is still really long when I think about it now. And the verdict is in, it’s delicious. I wish it had more demon soul eating going on but the gravy it builds, the story, the characters, I swear it’s like eating a mouthwatering stew marveling how it all comes together in perfect harmony and why you can’t get enough.

Witty, funny, scary and unstoppable, this YA story was a monster. This had both teeth and soul. My heart was tugged in many ways that it’s not accustomed to with books, this had GOT tugging going on. Meda was such a kindred soul, I love her blunt attitude and mental MacGyver skills for getting through stuff, she’s one badazz I will never get sick of reading about. My life has been so hectic lately that I haven’t been doing any good reading and this stole my weekend away. I spend a few hours in my kitchen with some Harry Potter soundtracks playing in the background each day reading this gem, it was bliss. I wont give the story away other than it’s about a young girl who wants to find out who she is, and boy is it a surprise and a hoot to read. I went highlight crazy on my ebook, too many lines to tell but some will stay with me for a while. I’m going to get the rest of the books in paper along with this one, it’s a keeper. I mean who can forget “slimy sadness leaking out of a child” as some really memorable crying? Highly magical, tons of action, slick dialogue. Perfection.
