I am ot sick, or crazy, or broken.I am Meda Melange, demon-saint monster girl.
It is o rare that th second installment is better than the thir, and it has happened.Do you like female demonic assassins who actually kill?
Ofte, come on in! To sum it up, th book:- Has a blood-thirsty soul-eating demon girl who kills bad people and eat their souls.- Takes your love triangle and your insta-love and your* sigh* romance and laughs in its face before spitting into said face, stomping on it, and ripping it off ( not ecessarily in that order)- Has a genuine, complex relationshi between two females, furthermore, said female is a disabled and missing a leg, but is far from helpless.- Has a wonderful cast of characters who are not one-dimensional in their purity, evilness, or righteousness.I have to confess, I have a special bias for this ook.
I love the main villai in a series so much that I 'm uffering from mild delusion that the delightful Ms. Crewe based Meda after me.
Howeve much in common already.I mean, it 's actually not a far stretch of the imagination at all to turn a grown-ass Asian woman who 's afraid of clowns, hates any type of physical activity that does n't tart with " stair " and end in " master, " with a day job as a suit-clad, pantyhose-wearing analyst, who 's searching for love on an onlin dating website into a half-demon soul-eater who kills bad guys, leaving them in bloody pieces all over the wall, whose reaction to a hot French-accented demon boy is " Oh, you 're pretty hot!
Meda is a half-demon who eats souls for a living, so it 's most fucking ironic thing in he world that she 's now with the Crusaders.
Yeah, those Crusaders and those Templars, like the red-pointy-cross-wearing descendants of the dudes back in the Middle Ages who went to Jerusalem on a holy journey to find Monty Python 's Holy Grail and protect the pilgrims spread Christianity to ALL THE PLACES and ended up going back to England with battle scars with their tails between their legs, cause, well, lol, English dudes do n't exactly know their way around a desert, plus, Saladin, that bad-ass motherfucker!
Yeah, those dudes.And now the half-demon Meda is one of them.
Meda is a Beacon, and the Crusaders kind of have to rotect her, whether she ants them to or not.
Meda is sorta, maybe special because she 's a Beacon, but it 's ot for sure, yet.
Most Beacons are duds, so Meda might not be special at all.
Her group of stick-up-their-ass Crusaders trying to " reclai " her are bad enough, but ow there 's new group of Crusaders in town, and they ar very cryptic ways of proving authenticity to one another.
She can kill bad dudes, but facing down an army of demons who want to drown her?
Nuh uh! Meda 's not exactly the most iked person in the Crusader compound.
With his new shit popping up, Meda REALLY has to bring her demon in check, and sense of blend in, in all orts of horrifying ways.
Do n't I just look so fucking happy and harmless? The new Crusader dudes are here to prepare for a fight, and in order to prepare Meda for the upcoming battle, they 're going to cross some unforgiveable boundaries of privacy.
Despite how much she remind her friends, Meda has a monstrou side that wo n't be suppressed and pounded down.
I fucking love Meda.
But there 's a difference between a well-drawn character and a Mary Sue. While oth may have special destinies, I do n't thin like Meda is a Mary Sue because:1.
Meda 's special destiny is not a sure thing, and it 's possibly not going to ave this world.
Beacons are protected for their potential, but Meda could just as easily save the world just as she could invent a new special sauce for Chicken McNuggets.3.
Meda wants her freedom.4.
You act like they might be grateful the Great Meda Melange didn ’ t kill them today.
You ant them to treat you like a Crusader? ” Now she does look at me.
“ Then stop acting like a beas. ”
I believ her rustration, because Meda tries to behave, but the Crusaders are unwilling to trust a half-demon.
Gee, I wonder why they ca n't trust anyon who kills people and ea their souls.
Meda is a demon.
