War is here.

Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and demons and even Chi has to admit isn’t going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda’s eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda’s forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles.

Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies
I fly through the air, soaring over chaos, then slam into the opening of the world. I grip the edge just barely. Grit rolls under my hands and I slide back towards the hole, only barely catching myself with the very edge of my fingertips. I dangle over disaster, the roar of battling demons below, but I am unafraid. I am filled with nothing but smug damn victory.

I am Meda fucking Melange. There is no way in hell I’m letting go.

I picked this book up because I'm horrible about starting series and then never finishing them. I have never even finished Harry Potter. If you finish them then that means the characters are gone!
I'm on a quest, to finish the multiple series that I started. I will probably fail, but I'm giving it a go. (I'll fail because I'll see a pretty book and get distracted)

Starting this one I kinda shook my head. The beginning just did not get it for me. I felt like the writing was kinda childish, so I ca

UPDATE 10/29/2015: Canadians, CreateSpace now distributes to Canada, so if you've been waiting for the print edition, wait no more!


This is how you end a trilogy!
Maybe this wasn't quite 5 star material, but I'm rounding up, because I think it deserves it for not being a huge letdown.
Like some other trilogies...


Alright, I'm really horrible at writing reviews for books that I loved, so this might not make any sense. It's just so hard to explain the feelings that come with realizing that the ending of a beloved series didn't suck!
It didn't suck at all!

Unplanned buddyread with Tamara. Do read her review when it's already posted. Thanks. <3

That was one bloody hell of a journey! (pun deliberately intended).

It’s no secret that I and almost everyone else who’s read this series are diehard fans of the infamous half-demon, half-crusader, part-beacon and part-human girl called Meda. That’s a lot of halves and parts because you really can’t break down the girl into only two things. So, if you haven’t met her yet, you’re seriously missing out on all

Despite the rating (hey, 3 stars means I liked it) this is still going down as one of my favorite YA series I've read. As a whole these books are a gem. Like, if you haven't checked these out? I have no idea why we are even friends.


I can't stress enough how amazing the characters are. I know that was basically all I ranted about in the previous review. Maybe this time it'll get through your thick skulls. These characters are gold. I honestly believe they are what make the series. Me
Aly (In Wonderland)

A demon's soul doesn't satisfy me the way a human's does. It's sweet-and-low to a living human's sugar. Still, a creeping satisfaction bubbles under my skin, the soul-drunk buzz that always accompanies the devouring of a soul.

Meda Melange is a back in a kick-ass, take-no-prisoners finale that will have you biting your nails in anticipation.

The demons have declared war on the Crusaders and it's not going well. Meda is ready to run away and leave the war behind, but Chi and Jo have oth

It’s this, my own depravity, that makes me unable to condemn others for theirs, that makes me want to believe that no matter what mistakes I make, that there is forgiveness. There is hope.
I want to believe there’s a chance, Armand had said. Even for me.
That’s what rebirth gives the demons: hope. Hope can be a powerful thing. A spark of light in the dark, a star in a black night. An impetus to change, a motivation to transform. Somethi

"When someone loves you unconditionally and eternally, no matter what you do... Well, let's just say, it makes it hard to be an ass."

Hey, Meda?

If I know her, she'll definitely appreciate the subtle expression of love that comes with bodily tackling human beings. After all, she's the kind of gal that notices a gorgeous thousand-thread-count carpet and thinks:

Well, this is the end of an era. Goodbye, Meda, Jo, Chi and Armand.

There's one thing you need to know about me, and no, it's not that I hate cats. What you need to know is that I absolutely abhor angels/demons books. Really, I hate them with all my soul. They're given for many things I hate in books. This book, how

War has erupted between the Demons and Crusaders and the Crusaders are losing. Are they doomed forever or is there still a way to win this war?

This book is darker than previous books as it dives more into the demon world and we get to see how they truly live.

What I loved about this book is that it shows that people are hardly either good or bad, but mostly grey (except chi but I’ll get to that later).

- We have Meda who is probably the greyest of them all. She is ruthless but she is also fiercel

You’ve read how many YA series where girl has a best friend but then meets a boy and everything becomes about him? The heroine becomes stupid over him and waves bye-bye to the best friend who is now delegated to the back seat…Meda is not that girl. Meda is the girl who might have the boy but will still go into hell for her BFF, literally. Don’t get me wrong Meda can still do romance…well sort of but it will never be roses and candy.

I have decided that Angel/Demon books are simply not my cuppa so I will not lie but I'm not really blown off my feet with this one.

Best ending ever!

How do I contain myself enough to write something that is not simply fan-girl gushing? Sorry, I don't think I can. I will just fan-girl all over this shit!

I love Meda so much! She is my favorite anti-hero ever! I love the way she is sarcastically & unapologetically truthful & practical:

I have a rule about arguing with idiots. Don't.

The kids are slow and stupid, and need to be shushed repeatedly.

I was so excited when I finally got ahold of this book,'cause I've been dying to know how would this series end,and that..I'm a fan of Meda and Jo's friendship!^^

The ending of this awesome series though,would have been perfect if the story lines have been more explored,and isn't been rushed a little. (I wonder why in most dystopian/fantasy series,the last book always end up in an abrupt manner..Does someone else notice this too?)-this is the 1st reason why I only rated it 4 stars.

Safe to say this final book scared the shit right out of me!!!! Damn! I think this writer is magnificent...her descriptions are soo thorough and everything abt the story fell into place perfectly...

This book didnt get 5 stars as the rest did because all the characters got me super angry in this book...i wanted to smack everyone of them and the happily ever after wasnt so complete for me but all in all it was great. You all need to read this series for real! Amazing!!!

I am Meda fucking Melange. There is no way in hell I’m letting go.

In this review, I will both conclude my opinion on the entire trilogy and say a few words about this installment in particular. There might be some mild spoilers, so read on at your own risk. Any major spoiler will be tagged as such, though.

My thoughts on the trilogy:
This was hands down one of the best YA UF series I've come across in... ever, really.
One of its biggest assets was undoubtedly the cast. While each major charact

Yes, yes, yes, yessssss! Absolutely amazing! This book was the best ending this series could possibly have! I am glowing and cannot contain myself!

After the disappointment of the second book, I was not having high hopes for this one. And the first half of the book hinted at a "just okay" finale. But Eliza Crewe outdid herself in the second half which more than made up for this and the previous book's shortcomings, and all of this series' sins have been forgiven.

This. Book. Was. PERFECT!!!! *squeals. Everything was on point: the writing, the plot, the humor, the action, the twists. It was just amazing. It's like Eliza Crewe had a sit down with me and asked me what I wanted to happen in the third book and the conversation went something like this:

*3.75/5 stars*

A lot better than book one for me, but not as amazing as book two. The plot a smidge dragged for me, whereas I flew through the second book at one go. Overall still a great conclusion to a unique and fun paranormal series about the not-so-evil-now Meda and not-so-goody-two-shoes-now Jo.

The tone of this book is darker than in the previous ones, and I guess it's the reason why I didn't get into it as much as book 2. I really love books with a bit of a dark theme, but... At its core,

1.) Cracked ★★★★
2.) Crushed ★★★★

I've said it in both my other reviews, and I'll say it again in this one; Meda is the character that young adults need to read about. This series is, hands down, the best new YA series I've read. The only comparable series is Angelfall, and that ending fell flat, whereas this ending was strong and wonderfully written.

There is something about an unapologetic character that gets me every time. Meda is consistently and completely amazing in all three books, and this conclusion was perfect for her story.

Meda and Jo are the ultimate in friendship goals. I want to be in their squad, and I’d be happy to take Armand off of Meda’s hands. Meda really stayed true to the kind of character she is and her progression was very organic from book one to book three. Jo had significant character development in this boo

Meda, my favourite Soul Eater... person is back! :D
And with her comes the usual array of cockiness, self-preservation and humility... *snort*, just seeing if you were paying attention, that are her known trademarks.

Now, what can I say about this story?
First of, I have to start by saying that this book surprised the hell out of me!
And in a most positive way.
It went "places" I never thought it could go. Both physically and morally.

I want Meda Melange to eat my soul.

I feel like she would take care of it, like an angry mama bear caring for her cub in the face of danger. Meda is the type of person I would want cradling my soul in her insides forever. She’s vulgar, crude, and horrifyingly honest. She would show my soul a good time.

Pure raw goodness on a donut is what you will find here in this escapist of a novel. It’s beautifully fantastical, entertaining like Tae Kwon Do, and madness in a hat. You will smile. You will lau

WARNING. This review doesn't have any rants in it. Mostly

Gaaaaahhhhhh It was awesome!!

Meda is awesome. Bad Jo, not so much. Chi is the same, and Armand gives an interesting... ah, twist, to the plot. Not much of a twist, just enough to spice things up.

The book is written in Meda's POV. We have an insight to her thought, her feelings, he opinion, her understanding. She gets demons and Crusaders alike, seeing her heritage.

Also, the book brings a different view of Hell and Heaven. I'm not sure if

Oh Meda. I missed you so much!

This was a pretty good conclusion to a pretty awesome trilogy. I was incredibly happy with Jo's change, she's never been my favourite character and her twist in this book made complete sense to me.

All in all it was an incredibly satisfying read and a series that I'd recommend 100%.

“And I did it for Him and He loves them. He betrayed us! Do you know why they get to come back from the dead to slaughter more and more of us? I thought it was some demon’s trick. That maybe we could fix that, too, or instead if our first mission failed.” Now she’s laughing at herself, at her naivety. “But He did it. Because He loves them. He loves the demons. He still loves them! After they sold their souls, after they’ve tortured the Templars and Beacons, and countless random innocents, He still loves them! He wants to give them time to change their minds before they’re committed to hell. He wants to give those murdering bastards the ability to be redeemed. They slaughtered my family, bathed in the blood of my friends, and He still loves them.” She looks at me and I see in her expression so much pain, so much bitterness, so much rage that I would have stepped back, had the demons not been holding me in place. The darkness that has taken over her personality since she became a demon becomes suddenly clear. After everything she has sacrificed to His cause she can’t understand how He can forgive her enemies.

But I do.

I do and it hits me with the force of a train.”
