Meda strives to find the truth about her heritage and finds a more than she bargained for

Cracked (Soul Eater, #1)Cracked by Eliza Crewe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The beginning was a little chaotic and all over the place.
That changed with the arrival of the young Crusaders and the energetic bundle of literary creativity became focused.
Meda uses the Crusaders to wriggle her way into their compound in an attempt to discover more about her powers and true heritage.
Evil side vs good side, hunger vs starving and the choice between friendship or succumbing to genetics, so it is no wonder Meda finds it hard to befriend anyone. Whilst Meda is interacting with various characters the reader is treated to an inner dialogue going on simultaneously in her head. A bit like a serial killer debating whether or not to kill, maim disfigure or just nibble on people.
Although the beginning was a tad gory and bloodthirsty the story soon slips into a comfortable YA pattern.
The characters gel well with each other. A blossoming quirky friendship and a complicated love story add to the charm of this slightly dark story.
The ending promises to make the next book in the series quite interesting. One decision might just have decided her fate and not in a good way. Certainly something to look forward to.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
