Crossed by Eliza Crewe
Published 2015, Independent
Wow! This one is chock full of twists and turns!!! Every time you think you've got it nailed down how it's going to go, the story takes another sharp turn... even straight into Hell!
Meda yet again proves to be one of the best YA-esque protagonists in the genre, with her not-so-good-girl attitude, spunk, and snarky wit ruling the narration. Jo proves for the billionth time that she's not all talk, but isn't phased by hard choices. Chi remains the lovable, heroic, stupidly reckless and hopelessly hopeful Crusader. Some other characters make returns in this book, which ties up a lot of loose ends.
I've heard rumors that this *could* be the last Meda book. Say it ain't so, Eliza! SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!
Another solid entry in the Soul Eater series. Tied up enough that it's believable as a series ender, but left enough potential threads that Crewe could return to it if she so chooses (and she'd better so choose, so help me Meda).
If I had more than five stars to give, this series would get the extras.
