Cracked


This was a pretty enjoyable book, and gave me quite some laughter but still with some pretty good and interesting fantasy elements. 

Such as beacons, templars, and demons. All of them come together nicely here, and give a lot of depth to each other. As well as explain all the half breeds, which Meda is, it was revealed quite early, and worked well with the plot. In fact, it was way more interesting when it was introduced that early, as it allowed a lot of moments for me to think whether it will be told to them. And added a lot of depth to Meda. 

Meda is compelling, given her narration managing to get a reaction out of me many times. And that her character is extremely active, where she pretends to be a beacon and try to get some secrets out of the templars. Where it eventually then turns into her discovering a lot about her own family, more about her mother here. 

And I just loved her, she was likeable and relatable. She was rather interesting and even unqiue. 

As for the others, they nonetheless entertained. Having Jo being a cripple but still wanted to keep on fighting, that was rather interesting and knowing how she was still dealing with her own issues, and blew up. As for Chi, quite the heroic idiot, but I just liked him because he wasn’t overly so, and no matter what put others first. 

As for Uri, his death came as quite a bit of a shocker, but then still something important and his character also contributed quite a lot. 

The dynamics between them had to be one of the best I have ever seen. I always looked forward to having them talk and meet, as they were just making the absolute best use of those pages. 

And that Meda despite being funny, and badass she still has plenty of flaws. Moments where she’s weak and even her own issues. Particularly at the end, where I think it might be more like an identity crisis and a really really difficult choice. 

But nonetheless, I still enjoyed the book till its end, with the characters being compelling and with some solid plot and worldbuilding. Which I’m going to really reconmend this to those who like Urban fantasy and is really sick and tired of the usual, since after all I also gave up on the genre after a while.
