Review: Cracked

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.

Be 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.

Stuck in an asylum for the past two weeks, what Meda's anticipated since then has finally arrived, and as her mother used to say, she's hangry. To live and to survive, Meda must eat a living soul, it's messy and bloody, but she's equipped and enjoys it. She makes it a point, on her mother's wishes, that she only kills bad people. Which, brings us back to the slimy asylum, in which she admitted herself to get closer to the target of a girl ghosts' murder.
She doesn't like the tables being turned.

Feature & Follow (#6)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly bloghop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This weeks Question:

Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?
Okay, you're probably going to shout at me but, I liked The Hunger Games, not because it was better than the book, but because it was just really nice to see all of it come to life. But, since that's not really an answer I'd say Dear John, though I loved the book, I preferred the movie ending that the actual ending in the book. Also, Channing Tatum. Enough said.

What did you pick?
