Summary from Amazon:

The RLS Angels are out for blood, and only Suze can stop them–since she’s the only one who can see them. The four ghostly teenagers died in a terrible car accident, for which they blame Suze’s classmate Michael… and they’ll stop at nothing until he’s joined them in the realm of the dead.

As Suze desperately fends off each attempt on Michael’s life, she finds she can relate to the Angels’ fury. Because their deaths turn out not to have been accidental at all. And their killer is only too willing to strike again.

My Thoughts

You guys!  I’m liking The Mediator series more with every book I read.  And that’s so rare for me.  Usually I tend to get a little tired of series, but not so with this series.  With Suze (the protagonist), ghosts (some up to no good), and a cute boy/ghost, Jesse, lots of humor, and a mystery thrown in, what’s not to like?

I really enjoyed the  mystery in this book.  It might be my favorite mystery of all the Mediator books I’ve read so far.  I’m not exactly sure why I liked it so much, but I really did.  I loved seeing Father Dominick (fellow mediator, and Suze’s mentor of a sort) and Jesse working with Suze trying to figure out what happened to the RLS Angels.

Meg Cabot creates the best characters, and Suze is definitely a favorite of mine.  She’s snarky, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind (or use her fists), but she’s also a really nice person who wants to do what’s right.  How can anyone not like someone like Suze?

In Reunion, we get to meet Suze’s best friend from New York, Gina.  I loved Gina; she’s a fun character.  But what I really loved was seeing how she affected Suze’s stepbrothers Sleepy and Dopey (okay that’s not their real names, but Suze is always calling them that, that I can never remember their real names).  We get to see a bit more of Sleepy in Reunion, and I really enjoyed that.  And Suze’s youngest stepbrother, Doc, adds some hilarious elements to the story.  Some of the things that come out of that boy’s mouth is pretty darn awesome, and makes me love Doc even more.

The Mediator series is a decidedly entertaining series, with each book better than the last.  Well, at least up to book three, Reunion.  I’m so excited to read the fourth book, Darkest Hour, where we finally get to learn a bit more Jesse.  I’m so glad I decided to continue with The Mediator series, because I’m loving it more and more with each  book.

  2. I may just check the first book out to see if I like it. Do you think this series is similar to The Princess Diaries in writing style and personality-wise?

Go ahead, make my day! No really, comments make my day! Let me know what you think.
