On her sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a deadly car crash. Though she’s untouched,
Before she can fully recover,
Every time I picked up Meridian I was completely absorbed into her world. Amber Kizer crafted a wonderful tale that sucked me right in. Meridian is a very likable character, as are Auntie, Tens, and of course Custos.
I like that initially we get a little bit of background into Meridian's life and then immediately the action picks up. Meridian finds herself thrust into a world she knew nothing about and despite some reluctance at first, she manages to survive and thrive. Auntie and Tens are a wonderful supporting cast; they are exactly what Meridian needed. I love the inclusion of Custos the wolf because I always have a soft-spot for animals.
I love the hopeful ending of the book and I can't wait to see where Meridian and Tens go from here. I anxiously await their next adventure; it can't come too soon.
