Synopsis: You can take the boy out of the darkness.
But you can’t take the darkness out of the boy.
All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).
But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn’t all that’s coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn’t only because she’s a mediator, gifted with second sight. 
From a sophomore haunted by the murderous specter of a child, to ghosts of a very different kind—including Paul Slater, Suze’s ex, who shows up to make a bargain Suze is certain must have come from the Devil himself—Suze isn’t sure she’ll make it through the semester, let alone to her wedding night.
Suze is used to striking first and asking questions later. But what happens when ghosts from her past—including one she found nearly impossible to resist—strike first?
What happens when old ghosts come back to haunt you?
If you’re a mediator, you might have to kick a little ass.

Cover Talk: It's nice but I wish it matched the previous books.

My Thoughts: I was stoked when Meg announced there is going to be a new Mediator book! I've been a huge Mediator fan since I was a kid and these are the books that introduced me to YA. So I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new book! And I finally did! I must say, it did not disappoint! 

Writing: What can I say, it's by Meg Cabot. One of my all-time favorite authors. So obviously I loved it. It had the same feel and atmosphere of the previous books but there was also a more mature and adult tone to it and I loved that! I love how Meg can do comedy that makes me laugh out loud as well as tragedy that makes me bawl. The writing definitely lived up to the previous books!

Story: Again, it was a Mediator book so obviously the story was amazing with mystery and suspense and romance. There were many plot twists that I didn't see coming and the story was very gripping which left me wondering what would happen next. It followed the pattern of the previous books with having a ghost story line and a personal Suze & Jesse story line. The ghost story line hit a little too close to home and made me cry a lot. I felt like the Suze & Jesse story line ending was very anticlimactic especially considering the buildup to it but I still loved it!

Characters: It was so good to meet all my favorite characters again! Suze was just as badass and sassy as ever! Jesse was as swoony and amazing as ever! Paul was as annoying and evil as ever! It was nice to see them all grown up. I loved seeing how everyone's lives turned out! Since this was more adult Meg had the freedom of making it more real. So it was nice to see these characters deal with adult problems. 

Overall: I loved this book! It was just as amazing as the previous ones! And if you haven't read The Mediator series yet then what are you waiting for?! Go and read them and then come back here and fangirl with me! :D
