Ya know that feeling of pure unadulterated bliss that you get when your just so happy? Yeah. I get that when I think about this book. The Mediator series was a very special part of that awkward phase you go through as a young teenager. Suze was a role-model to me. She showed me it was okay to not pay attention to what others think of you. It's okay to be yourself, no matter what kind of person you are. I wanted to be as cool as her, and less self conscious.
Anyway, this book was everything I loved about the original series, and more. I hope that there are more books added, but if not, there was an amazing ending that I'm completely satisfied with. My favorite part though, was with the ghost. It was one of the better ghost mysteries of the series, and it made me tear up a bit.
This book is definitely worth a read. Check it out if you haven't already....more
This was a very lovely novel. I just love the poetry of it. The way it was written just flowed, and the authour has quite a gift for writing.

Not to say the book didn't have flaws. I hated Christopher. He was like a big jerk, and I didn't by his feelings to either Lenia or Margerthe. I think he was just lustful after one and afraid of his father so he would pretend to like the other one.
Margerthe was nice, I just wished her ending would have been a little different, cause I don't believe she would have been truly happy.
Lenia was by far the best part of this novel. I felt her emotions so clearly and I felt so sorry for her. I do wish we would have found out how she adapted to her life after the end. If she adapted at all.
Anyway, with that being said, I loved it, but I wish Prince Christopher wasn't such a wimp....more

Actual Book Review: October 4th
So I had this totally awesome book review, but Goodreads timed out when I tried to save it. Hera or Gaea are being really mean. They don't want you to read this book. Hera because she loves Jason more than Percy, and Gaea because she's evil, and vice versa.
BUT DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE EVIL PEOPLE!!! PERCY IS THE TOTALLY AWESOMEST DEMIGOD EVA'!!!! JASON STINKS!!!
Though Leo's hot...
Anyway, like I said before Hera messed with Goodreads, Rick Riordan may have lost his marbles when he wrote "The Lost Hero." I mean, come on, there is no way he can start a series with an arrogent amnesiac who everyone claims is the best thing since Pac Man to be as well loved as Percy. Percy's a better amnesiac, and this is a much better book than the first one.
One reason is each of the characters get a set of four chapters instead of two. This settles the pacing down and gives us a real chance to get to know the two newbies, Frank and Hazel. Poor Jason and Piper didn't really stand a chance with the two chapter formula. In this book, Frank and Hazel really get a lot of spotlight, and they grow on you, each with a pretty cool background history (Hazel especially) and great character growth (Frank especially).
Also, this book didn't follow some kind of obvious plot path that the first one did. The first one was like you could clearly see where Rick had wrote his plot web. This one didn't have you seeing who was going to be the main hero where. Well, not too much anyway. Oh, and the battles where totally original, unlike "The Lost Hero", which seemed to borrow (steal) all it's battle ideas from the Percy Jackson series.
I'm going to wrap this up now by saying that this book has restored my faith in Rick Riordan. I was afraid that he had totally lost his mind, but, even though he seems in love with Jason now, I don't think this series will be soooo bad.
Especially since Percy's back and we now have the Amazing Flaming Valdez ;)
BTW, I totally love everyone who's liked or commented on my review. It made me feel special. HUGS FOR EVERYONE!!!!!...more
This was a pretty awesome book. I've always heard about the love story of Cleopatra, but I've never read a book staring her children before. MichelleThis was a pretty awesome book. I've always heard about the love story of Cleopatra, but I've never read a book staring her children before. Michelle Moran did a incredible job of getting across Selene and Alexander's feelings about being taken to a different country, about losing their parents and their heritage. They were great characters. The setting was detailed and belivable. My only wish was that Selene hadn't had been wishing all the time to be with the other guy, I can't remember his name though. Anyway. Very enjoyable book....more
This book kept me very entertained on a four hour drive. Let me just say real quick, isn't the cover AWESOME! Anyway, Sophie is a g4 and a half stars.
This book kept me very entertained on a four hour drive. Let me just say real quick, isn't the cover AWESOME! Anyway, Sophie is a great main character. Funny and unsure of herself, she tries to fit into Hex Hall, solve a murder mystery, try not to let the three evil witches get to her or frame her vampire best friend for the murder, and get the hot warlock Archer Cross to notice her. Just normal teenage stuff. Only everyone is like a witch, fairy, or shapeshifter!
The twists weren't in your face everywhere or suddenly out of the blue. Though almost all were unexpected, they all had some sort of buildup or hint. And the last two, especially the one were they didn't... about... dang, no spoilers. But the (what I conisder) second to last shocker that is not realated to Sophie. Oh, that made me so mad. I was literaly on a Literary high on some of the descriptions of that scene, and BOOM! NOOOOOOO! (cry/pout "it's not fair")
Anyway, my only problem I had with it, was it sort of kind of reminded me of Harry Potter. Not really, but the school thing. Anyway, that helped it a bit, because I always wished for a female Harry.
