Fifteen years after the release of the first Mediator novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot returns with a deliciously sexy new entry to a fan-favorite series.
Suze Simon—all grown up and engaged to her once-ghostly soulmate—faces a vengeful spirit and an old enemy bent on ending Suze's wedded bliss before it begins.
You can take the boy out of the darkness.
But you can’t take the darkness out of the boy.
All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).
But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn’t all that’s coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn’t only because she’s a mediator, gifted with second sight.
From a sophomore haunted by the murderous specter of a child, to ghosts of a very different kind—including Paul Slater, Suze’s ex, who shows up to make a bargain Suze is certain must have come from the Devil himself—Suze isn’t sure she’ll make it through the semester, let alone to her wedding night.
Suze is used to striking first and asking questions later. But what happens when ghosts from her past—including one she found nearly impossible to resist—strike first?
What happens when old ghosts come back to haunt you?
If you’re a mediator, you might have to kick a little ass.
Do you guys even know how exciting this is for me? Meg Cabot has been my favorite author for my whole reading life. Her books are the very first books that I remember completely devouring and re-reading in the young adult genre. And the Mediator series is my very favorite of my favorites. I have, no joke, read the mediator series at least 15 times. Remembrance is book 7 in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot, and it takes place 15 years after book 6 left off. What I love the most about Remembrance is that the characters have grown up just like I have. So now this is an adult book. Suze is getting ready to marry off Jesse (who by the way, was my very first book boyfriend. And still one of my top book boyfriends of all time.)
Reading Remembrance was like getting to reminisce with some of my older best friends. It was so great. Like being wrapped up in a big hug by someone you have missed greatly. I know that may sound silly, or exaggerated, but I am not kidding in the slightest. That is what I felt the entire time I was reading Remembrance. I could not wipe this silly mega grin off my face.
Suze is just as awesome as I remember her and Jesse is just as swoon-worthy. Suze has only gotten better with age. She is still as spunky as ever, but I feel like she has matured an appropriate amount in her years away. And it was so great to see her with a very much alive Jesse. The ghost in this book was good, but honestly, I can’t say whether it was my favorite ghostly narrative of the series or not. I was just so darn excited to be reading a new Mediator book, that I don’t know if my judgment is clouded on this issue. I am planning to re-read all of the books in the series, so I will have to get back to you on the ghost. (Louisa)
Paul surprised me in this book. I remember liking him, and then disliking him, and then disliking him a little less in the series. He never took away my love for Jesse, but Suze and Paul still have some great back and forth between them. That was fun to see. Without giving anything away with Remembrance, I will say this. This is a must read for fans of the Mediator series. And if you have not read The Mediator series yet, shame on you! What are you waiting for? It is a series, that I would recommend to everyone, no exceptions. You do need to read the first 6 books before reading Remembrance so get to it!
Bottom line: Meg Cabot always does an outstanding job, and Remembrance is no exception. Fans new and old of the Mediator series will love Remembrance. It certainly lived up to my expectations.
