Description

Shadowland and Ninth Key are the first two books in the thrilling, romantic Mediator series, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries, Meg Cabot.

Suze is a mediator--a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business on earth. But after a cross-country move to sunny California, Suze is looking forward to a fresh start and a life free of spectral interventions.

Too bad Suze can't escape the undead that easily. She might not mind Jesse, the sexy ghost who haunts her bedroom, but there are plenty of other poltergeists out there with less friendly intentions. Some of them are out for revenge...of the murderous kind. And Suze might be the only one who can stop them.

Binge-read the first two books in the New York Times bestselling Mediator series in this bind-up, from the author of The Princess Diaries.

Our customer reviews

Meg Cabot's first two instalments into her Mediator series chronicle the life of Susannah (Suze) Simon, who can talk and see dead people. As her mother is newly remarried Suze is about to make a big move to California, hoping for a fresh start free from the dead and her bad reputation. Suze is tough, intelligent and, at times, hilarious. She combines humour with a tough-as-nails attitude, resulting in a concoction of acidly sarcastic and very funny dialogue. Suze is a very cool customer, ghosts and vampires phase her not. A sense of fashion and liaising with the dead in your spare time are not generally two things I would associate, though to Susannah Simon, both are a thing of necessity. Cabot's eclectic mix of characters are an entertaining crowd, including the derisive Adam McTavish, the suave ghost Jesse and the other mediator in Suze's life, Father Dominic. I found the books to be an almost laid-back read, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. They were thoroughly enjoyable for just this reason. Cabot writes in a way which makes her stories flow very smoothly and easily. I find reading her work almost relaxing- I'm not on the edge of my seat while reading but I enjoy it all the more for this very quality; too many authors strain to keep the reader hooked, forgetting that it can be very tiring to be always on edge, and a very hard thing to pull of successfully. It's a fantastic change of pace to be able to read something with a good comical story that doesn't try to give me a headache. If there is a fault with the story though, it's that the plot is a little straight to the point. From very early on in the book, you know which way the story will go. This is fine if you like a firm sense of direction (a lot of people do), however, personally I prefer a few more twists and turns in a tale- This is not to say that I didn't enjoy the journey that Suze embarks upon in her line of mediation. I look forward to reading more about Suze in the next instalments in the series. if you would like to see more please go to http://eilishreads.blogspot.ie/show more
