This time it's life or death.

Suze has gotten used to ghosts. She's a mediator, after all, and communicating with the dead is all in a day's work. So she certainly never expected to fall in love with one: Jesse, a nineteenth-century hottie. But when she discovers that she has the power to determine who becomes a ghost in the first place, Suze begins to freak. It means she c

Dear Jesse,

I went back in time. Your time. To the 19th century. I know, I know. It was dangerous and could've cost my life, but I still went. I mean, really, since when did I ever listen to what someone told me to do.Whatever. The real reason for this is to say goodbye. Why? You ask, well because, in the future you and me, well we'll never meet. you know I'm actually smiling right now because, if you were here you'd probably get all mad and say , "Susannah. it's 'you and I.'"

For some reason, this is the book I remembered the most from my first read through. I really enjoyed my reread of this series overall. It's not a perfect series - the writing is a bit juvenile - but it's a whole lot of fun. I would recommend it for anyone who wouldn't get hung up on the writing and wants a breezy series. ...more

When our heroine learns about a new power she has her love is greatly tested. Will she do the right thing or will she choose what makes her happy?
Good story with lots of action.
I can’t believe this. One more book left now. I’m sorry to see this series go. I save these books to read for Sundays, and it has been what I look forward to most the past several Sundays.

Admittedly, I have found Suze quite annoying and weak in this book, especially with how she handles Paul. This is such a shame because she has been so strong and capable and such a badass female protagonist before this Paul stuff. *sigh*

However, everything has worked out for the best in a way and I finish this

Re-read 5/26/17: I will always and forever love this series with all of my heart. Aside from Harry Potter this is the series that really kick-started my reading as a youngster, and my love for it is eternal. Also: Jesse gives Michael Moscovitz a run for his money as my number one book bae, which is a Big Deal.

This book annoyed the SHIT out of me. As far as I am concerned this was a horrible ending to a series that started out fantastic. I loved this series when I first started reading it, the main character Suze was tough, sassy, funny as hell and she had a good sense about her (and great taste in shoes, but that is neither here nor there). Point is, I really liked her, she didn't seem like the typical teen I've been reading about so much lately and I liked her, I truly did. But as the series went on ...more
20 pages in, and I'm already enraged at Paul. I quit. I am so done with this series. Literally all it took to ruin this series for me was a pushy, invasive, patronizing, borderline rapey son of a bitch.

I can't stand him. So I'm out. I quit. It was fun while it lasted but I am so done.
This isn't a review but a general appreciation for the whole series.


Hector 'Jesse' de Silva was my first book boyfriend ever, along with Rob Wilkins of the Missing series (by the same author lol) and Susannah was the best, most inspiring girl I had read as a young girl and I learned a great many things from her- need for self defense against supernatural things, sarcasm (literally, she is the initiato

Original review: 4 stars
7/2020 reread: 3 stars

I couldn't let Jesse die, even if it meant never seeing him again. I loved him too much. It was as simple as that.
So, originally, I had this review at four stars . . . but if we're being honest, the book just doesn't deserve that high of a rating. Not because it didn't provide the exact sort of HEA closure that readers--and the book's characters--deserved, but because the way we got to that point was ridiculous.

In the sixth instalment of the Mediator series Suzie is forcefully studying her talents with fellow mediator Paul due to their agreement to protect Jesse. When Suzie finds out that Paul may have a trick up his sleeve to make sure Jesse never meets her she does everything in her power to stop him. But will Jesse agree with Suzie's drastic measures to protect his ghost form? and what will happen when both mediators travel back to the eighteen hundreds and meet Mr De

I can honestly say that Twilight was the best book in The Mediator series. I loved all six books, but this one was one of the best books Meg Cabot has ever written. I loved the way she ended The Mediator and this book had more suspense and laughs than its predecessors. Not only was there the really cool supernatural storyline but this one had time travel! This unexpected addition to The Mediator books was awesome to say the least.

Twilight picks up a few months from where Haunted left off. Suze

I read this whole series straight through in about two weeks. I loved the whole "I see dead people" thing. It was very interesting and the additional mediator talents revealed in the last three books were even more interesting. For a book to be romantic, the guy and girl have to be separated tragically. The fact that Suze is alive and Jesse is dead was really unique and I enjoyed that throughout the whole series. It ended exactly the way you think its going to end, but it was fun reading it neve ...more

This last book is an astounding grand finale for "The Mediator" series! Very well planned and written! A masterpiece indeed!
The ending is perfect! When I read it, I couldn't forget it! I'm so glad at the same time sad, for it's done.
Over all, it's a beautiful book! A perfect love story everyone will love! It's a kind of love story, whoever will read it, will never forget it! I want to thank Meg Cabot for writing such a novel! She inspired me!

While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I am so glad this was not the end to the series and Meg decided to write Remembrance. I cannot wait to start it because there were more loose ends than I remember. I need closure and I did not get that from Twilight. I finished this audiobook and thought...WHAT?! Not that it wasn't a great book because it was. But I just wanted a smudge more closure.

I loved getting to know Jesse in the past, and of course more Paul is always good news for me! I just want Pau

The conclusion to an otherwise great series left a lot to be desired despite its happy ending. I often thought Paul's introduction brought this series down a notch. It would've been different if he was a formidable foe, but he was used more as a foil to Jesse&Suze's relationship for the stupid love triangle angle. I didn't like that Paul's previous involvement in trying to kill/hurt her and her friends was sort of glossed over and Cabot had Suze lusting after him despite his obvious psychopathic ...more

Re-read in 2020 on audio:

Twilight is book 6 in the Mediator series and for the longest time, it was also the final book in the series. This officially concludes my re-read of the original series. Next, I will continue my journey and read Proposal and Remembrance for the very first time.

This book made me super emotional. I loved seeing Jesse as a human...alive 🥺😭 I also loved seeing Suze with her dad 🥺😭 The denouement is so well written and the HEA is so well deserved. And the ending is simply pe
I really was very curious about how this was going to resolve since I knew I had the right ship, and while it's very easy, I am also very okay with it.

Paul is still the worst.

100 stars because this was just as good as I remembered and brought back so many happy teenage memories!
The originally last book of the YA series, where Suze finally gets her happy ending.

Suze is at her worst in this book, selfish and stubborn, and for a bit part of the book I felt more annoyed than anything else, especially when she kept insisting that (view spoiler)

Meg Cabot has done it again! She's saved the best for last with the final book to The Mediator series: Twilight. I really enjoyed The Mediator series. Twilight was by far my favorite because all of the other books led up to this one. It had a lot of suspense in it and kept me wanting more. I've never read so much in my life reading the series.

This was my favorite book for so many years and a lot of the way it still is, but in a more nostalgia way. I do think the shifter mythology was never developed as well as it could've been. But I still love it.

Gave this entire series a reread and let me tell you, it does not hold up to the test of time.

First, I realized that as an actual professional working young adult, I can't read young adult lit anymore because I look at these 16 year old characters and their /so much older/ 20 year old boyfriends and the only possible reaction is "You're all babies! Stay home and play Neopets!"

Ugh so much brand name dropping. So much generalization everywhere. What even is up with the description of New York City

Suze annoys me so much this book. I feel like it could be a good 100 pages shorter and better if they would take out all the whining she does about how if Paul saves Jesse then they will never meet, seriously over and over. Ok we GET IT! She even goes on to say how he is the only thing she has in her life that makes it worth living at some point. That's really great that your family and friends you don't care at all about, just your boyfriend, am I reading the other Twilight here? She spends eno ...more
