REVIEW: Ninth Key by Meg Cabot

Ninth Key (The Mediator, #2)
Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she's willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad... particularly the fact that he's not Jesse, whose ghostly status--not to mention apparent disinterest in her--make him unattainable.

What Suze can't ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont's past.


I read the first book a few months ago and I enjoyed it! This isn't a dark ghost story, more of the fun variety, and it has a common plot, but I enjoyed it!

Suz is trying to be semi normal, but the fact that there's a mediator prevents that. Again. This time she's woken by a screaming woman, a ghost, who needs Suz to tell "Red" that he didn't kill her. Suz has no idea who this "Red" is, so she asks around. Turns out "Red" is the nickname of Tad Beaumont's dad. Suz ends up much deeper when the billionaire dad could be making people "disappear". And possibly insane. On the brightside, Suz is now dating Tad Beaumont, the hottest guy in school. 

From what I understand, based on other reviews, this isn't the best book in the series, but it's still good. Suz is a very great narrator. She's very spunky and I absolutely love her sarcastic voice! This book gets really, uh, messed up as it goes on, which is why I have odd feelings towards it. It actually takes an oddly dark turn, but also doesn't feel as serious. This book has a wholly fun vibe to it, even when things get dark, for some odd reason.

There is a love interest, per say, in this book. But it never really goes anywhere and it also takes a back seat to everything else. Tad, the love interest, was really boring and kind of dumb. Suz says herself in the book that the only thing she really likes about him is his looks. Honestly, Tad's just there because of the plot and because Suz can't be with Jesse.

All in all, this was a fun book! These books are really quick and easy reads! I have all of them sitting on my shelf ready for me to read, so I'll be binge reading the rest of them soon!

I hereby give this book
3 Wheels
Meaning: I liked it
