Genres & themes: YA, demons, action, humour, fantasy, friendship, family, ghosts, urban fantasy.
Meet Meda. She eats people.Well,
technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go
for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys
it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her
mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters”
around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in
suits show up.
They can do what she can do. They’re like her.
Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem?
They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is
rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out
Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and
she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her ‘kind’ is.
careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal
enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and trying to
keep one step ahead of a too-clever girl are bad enough. But the Hunger
is gaining on her.
The more she learns, the worse it gets. And
when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her
destiny… she may finally give into it.
I’m going to be VERY honest with you guys:
I want to eat this book. Nom nom.
want to devour every word and every chapter slowly and taste its
flavours because, if it’s as amazing as the reading was, it may be even
better than pizza. Or sushi. Or ice cream… Nom nom.
Yes, believe it or not, it’s the truth.
Cracked is the most entertaining book I’ve read so far in 2014. Even funnier than Rebel Belle which I didn’t think possible because that book is so much fun!
is the kind of book you don’t want to let go because there is always
something interesting and surprising in it and it has a hold on you.
There were so many things I was hoping to do yesterday, such as watching
Once Upon A Time, Hit The Floor or clean dishes. Oh, and I was looking forward to seeing this movie called How to Train Your Dragon 2 at the cinema. But no, Eliza Crewe
had to write a fantastic novel to keep me off doing all those enjoyable
things I planned to. Did you hear that? It’s called being sarcastic.
I’m warning you, if you want to read this book and like it (or love
it!), you better get used to it. *winks*
Meda, can I kiss you? Maybe shouldn’t have said that publicly, sigh. I feel so connected to that character. It’s not because I have the same personality as her, no, but mostly because she’s so… real. She is honest with us readers even if, yeah, sometimes you may thing she isn’t. Again, she’s really sarcastic. And I loved that so much about her. It’s pretty rare that I actually laugh out loud while reading a book but Cracked simply succeeded to make me giggle and smile and bite my nails because, yes, it is not only rainbows and sunshine. Let's not forget that there are demons envolved so don't expect this to be to die for funny.
story, wow. The story is unpredictable and, again, WOW. When I started
reading this book, I was expecting it to be good because of the rave
reviews and the hype, but I’m always a bit suspicious when I see a lot
of 5 stars. I’m not the kind to give 5 stars all the time and very
easily so I’m as surprised as maybe you are. There are so many twists
and, yes, secrets but it was actually interesting and I always wondered
if the characters would or not discover the truth. Either way, I was
excited and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next!
is some romance but not in fact including the main character a lot. My
GR friends know that I could read a book only if there is a little
romance in it. In Cracked, there was some indeed and just the perfect
amount to keep me hooked. Plus, I just love love/hate relationships.
I love/adore this book so much that (yes I know I already have it in digital copy duh but…) I ordered Cracked in paperback so I could eat it…I mean…read it, of course.
Highly recommended series.
