    What can I say? I'm obsessed with rereading this series. I had to physically read this one because only an abridged version of the audiobook exists (seriously, who does that?). I was a little sad that Suze dropped the nicknames for her stepbrothers. I really liked hearing them referred to as Dopey, Sleepy, and Doc. This is the shortest book in the series, but I still feel like important things happened in it. I'm getting a little tired of the "Suze meets boy who is being haunted by a malevolent What can I say?

I'm getting a little tired of the "Suze meets boy who is being haunted by a malevolent spirit" plotline - don't girls ever get haunted? I also wish Suze's friend CeeCee played a bigger role in the series; I feel like she could be a cool sidekick. I vaguely remember thinking Paul was kind of dangerous-hot in high school but now I'm like, ew, fuck off you abusive twat.

    The characters were kinda annoying in this one. Suze needed to get it togetherrrrr. And Jesse. And her friend was being oddly pushy about the campaign. And Father Dom was being rather unsympathetic. Hhmmm... So it's my least favorite Mediator book so far. Hope it gets back on track from here. 3 stars The characters were kinda annoying in this one.

My favourite part is the hot tub party near the end. Paul arrives uninvited and provokes Jesse. Paul tumbles down the stairs pushed by Jesse. Jesse holds Paul’s head in the hot tub. All the partygoers think Paul has gone either gone mad, got really drunk or he is high. Because Suze and Paul are mediators only they can see the invisble force holding Paul underwater. At the end, Jesse finally admits that he loves Suze and they are officially dating, if you can call it dating since Jesse is already dead. But at the end of the book, Suze is the happiest girl in Carmel.

I mean, Jesse rocks, but Paul has this part of him that I just want to kiss him myself, you feel so sorry for him. Overall, very good book, though I hate how Jesse moves out for Suzes' "own good".

    This is the book when Paul Slater just managed to push himself onto Suze (even if its's unrequited) and inserts himself between her and Jesse. Talk about a psychopath. Not a whole lot happened, plot-wise. Just Suze moaning about her love life really and finding out things about her spiritual powers.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I wanted to like this book more than the prequels, because I liked the series less and less with each book. Sadly the process continued with Haunted. Paul turns out to be even crazier than I thought and we get more of the whole Jesse-drama-llama. Haunted was thinly disguised as a paranormal story when all it was is a love story between Susannah and Jesse. Suze is more dense and stupid than I ever thought possible. I laughed out loud when she said she isn't stupid. Didn't all that happened before I wanted to like this book more than the prequels, because I liked the series less and less with each book.

I've become so frustrated with her, I don't even know what to say anymore. She's become even lamer in this book than she already was. All she's concerned about is Jesse, Jesse, Jesse. Oh and fashion, wheee! All her rambling about clothes annoyed me. I simply didn't care about it. It seemed like bought advertisement for Jimmy Choo shoes. The only one who was able to coax something else out of Suze and make her think of something else was Paul. But OF COURSE Paul had to turn out even crazier than he was portrayed as before. And am I the only one who thought Jesse completely overreacted when he went at Paul with the goal of killing him? That turned me off Jesse so fast you wouldn't believe it. Beating someone up/trying to kill that person, just because they're being an a-hole? How about no. I laughed out loud maybe four times during it and only two times was because of something that was supposed to be funny. The other two times was more of sad laugh or a laugh of how ridiculous it turned out to be. I just can't with this series anymore. I'm glad when I'm finally done with it.

    This is another solid installment in the Mediator Series! This time there wasn't much of ghosts trying to kill Suze, as much as the love-triangle really flourishing. But I had no problem with this because I spent the whole book trying to figure why I loved Paul Slater so much? I came to the conclusion that it's the same reason I love Malfoy, Peter, and Sebastian. They are rotten and not particularly charming (Paul on the other hand tends to be pretty darn charming). But I think I have this hope This is another solid installment in the Mediator Series!

But I think I have this hope that they will redeem themselves along the way, and I'm rooting for them. What can I say? I have a thing for the under dogs! THANK GOODNESS someone (not going to spoil with who) finally got clued in on the whole mediator deal. Suze needs someone other than Father Dom and Jesse to confide in about this major part of her life. If you couldn't tell, I was more than excited about this improvement. There is also a lot of progress in the story telling going on. I can't wait to read Twilight and see the different dimensions to Size's Mediating skills. As much as I love the first few books, I forgot how much I enjoyed these later books because it's not just a stubborn ghost that refuses to move on. There is so many more storylines intertwined. This is the point where I wish Goodreads had half (or even quarter stars) to give. Because this book is definitely much closer to a five than the other books but not quite there. We'll see if Twilight makes that jump for me. I remember the big stuff but not the little things in between!

    I have really enjoyed this series and I have every intention of finishing the last book, however, this book just didn't do it for me. I know a lot was revealed about 'what' Suze is and what all she can do that she was unaware of, that part was great. I just got sick of hearing about Jesse. Good gracious me, that was ALL she thought, talked, whined, moped and pondered over. Jesse, Jesse, Jesse, ect. Why doesn't he like me? What did I do?

How could I kiss someone else and like it when I love Jesse? And on and on and on ....... SHUT UP!!!! I did scream this at the book and then went into a tirade of WHY he shouldn't like her, annoying was at the top of the list. I calmed down, did some Yoga breathing and finished the book. It may not sound like it, but I actually do like Suze. She just annoyed the holy hell out of me in this book with her nonstop obsession over a flipping ghost and she is only 17! And they have nothing in common! Ugh. What saved the book for me, at least a little, were the new things that we learned about Suze thanks to Mr. Hot & Slightly Psychotic, Paul. This intrigues me to hurry on to the next book and finish up the series because it sounds like he will be in the next one and possibly showing her more stuff she is capable off. If he can get her off of Jesse, that is.

I agree, the fight chapter was hillarious!!! I love that CeeCee realized finally who Jesse is. And I love how she is willing to let Suze explain it all in time. What a great friend!!

    2.75 Not as good as the previous one (book 4), nor as the first two books in the series, but had better plot than book three. The main characters was sometimes annoying here. Well, ok we all know SUze can be annoying always, that's just how she is, but here more so than normal. And even Jesse and Father Dom were kind of... having a bad day in book five, I guess. 2.75 Not as good as the previous one (book 4), nor as the first two books in the series, but had better plot than book three.

    I'm a BIG fan of The Mediator series, no that there's this fifth book to the collection, I really needed to read this. The realtionship between Suze and Jesse is one of a kind, mainly because he's a ghost. But, she thinks he doesn't feel the same way. He rarely speaks to her, nobody can see him except her and paul. Paul's a mediator too (someone who can see and communicate with ghosts). He's one of the bad guys and yeah he likes Suze too! When he kisses her, she actually kisses him back!

What about Jesse?! There's a whole lotta events and madness and this really keeps the story going. Especially the party-like scene where Jesse and Paul are at each other's necks in Suze's bedroom, fighting away. Totally histerical and entertaining. I was literally shouting 'Go Jesse,Go!'(as you can see I quite dislike Paul. Too cocky, urghh.)So, it really consumes you making you carry on reading one page after another until you come yo the end... ... which is a very good end I must say. Jesse and Suze. Suze and Jesse :D

    Since when did Sleepy, Dopey and Doc become permanently Jake, Brad and David? I liked how each book solved a different mystery/dealt with a different ghost, so I was disappointed when this book was basically all just about Paul being a creep/evil and Suze crying about Jesse. Paul is aggressive and annoying and there is no development whatsoever, so this was probably my least favourite book of the series so far.

Yet it was arresting Original review: 5 stars 7/2020 reread: 3.5 stars -- How to rate such a favorite from my adolescence? I mean, I got this bitch signed. As stated in my review of Shadowland, I read Haunted first. I knew nothing about the beginning of Suze and Jesse's relationship. I never knew a time before Paul Slater. I didn't even know about Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc because this was the book Cabot (kind of inexplicably and abruptly) stopped using those nicknames to refer to Suze's stepbrothers. Yet it was arresting enough for me to become obsessed with getting my hands on the previous installments. It completely captivated me. It had just the perfect mix of sass, drama, frivolity, and mystery. I found Suze to be a wickedly cool, stylish protagonist; I loved that she didn't disparage feminine things like makeup, hair, or clothing. That she, in fact, celebrated these things, which didn't interfere at all with her being a badass. I loved how enigmatic and gentle Jesse was . . . not to mention how wickedly persistent Paul Slater was in pursuing Suze. I was also, like, twelve at the time. Which I think says a lot about the YA genre as a whole, perhaps not entirely good things. Because while I applaud the steps the genre and its authors have taken to become more diverse and inclusive, I can't help but feel that we're forgetting that the audience of these books should be, primarily . . . teenagers. Not adult women in their twenties, thirties, etc. When I was twelve or thirteen and reading these novels, I looked up to Suze. She seemed so complex, so impossibly cool. I wanted to emulate her at the same time I felt it impossible that I would ever be anything like her. That seems silly now because Suze is never more like a teenager than in Haunted, with its focus centered not on a mystery involving a ghost (there is a ghost requiring mediation, but his storyline is weak compared to the previous four installments) but firmly around the two guys vying for Suze's affections: Jesse de Silva and newcomer Paul Slater. Realistically, I can admit that this shift in focus did the books few favors. Paul especially hasn't aged well. As mentioned in previous reviews, his character may have felt titillatingly bad back in the early 2000s, when YA was very different and I myself was squarely within its target demographic, but the game has changed since then. Plus, I'm older now. I can recognize a one-dimensional creep when I read him. In fact, I would argue that Paul Slater is actually the worst thing about The Mediator series. Not because his character conception wasn't really good. Actually, the idea of a male mediator Suze's own age, one who wants to date her and represents a viable romantic rival to Jesse, who cannot realistically offer her a future, is fantastic. It's just that he's handled so poorly. I can recognize now how flimsy his motivations are, how unsatisfying and convoluted all his plots end up being, and how stagnant his character development remains throughout the life of the series. He, quite honestly, dropped this noxious, stifling shroud over an otherwise vivacious, complex story, and all the plots surrounding him inestimably dumb down the books. It would be more appropriate to give Haunted three stars, but it's just too tied up with fond memories from my past. And really, it was what kickstarted me to read the series, so how can I slam it now? I still had a good time reading it. Even that incredibly dated and overblown fight between Jesse and Paul made me smile. It'll always be special to me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Grave Doubts is still highly enjoyable, but I couldn’t help feeling as if it was a bit of a ‘filler’ book – one that explains some need-to-know things between Young Blood and Heaven Sent, particularly about the role that Paul Slater plays as antagonist. After Suze’s emotional outpouring in Young Blood, it’s great to see her back in action and back to her old tricks. Of course, things may have ended EXTREMELY well in the last book, but that doesn’t mean they’re staying that way.

After Suze’s emotional outpouring in Young Blood, it’s great to see her back in action and back to her old tricks. Of course, things may have ended EXTREMELY well in the last book, but that doesn’t mean they’re staying that way. Suze has to figure out why despite kissing her – finally!- Jesse seems distant. Suze, overreacting as usual, jumps to the wrong conclusions and some stuff goes down in true Mediator fashion. Add to this the re-appearance of villain, Paul, and you have quite the mix for a page turner. Grave Doubts was a quick and breezy read just like the rest of the series, but I noticed something was quite absent from this book – the focus of a ghostly haunting. Sure, there’s Craig who’s haunting his brother out of resentment, but it didn’t take as much of a part in this book as previous ghost hauntings have in the series. Grave Doubts hinged entirely on the relationship between Suze, Paul and Jesse – and the dynamic between the three. There was plenty of action this time around, as well as some really cute scenes between Suze and Jesse. I’ve always remembered Grave Doubts as the book where ‘Suze has to walk home with blistered feet’. Seriously, it’s a HUGE PLOT POINT, and enjoyably so. I can’t tell you how much I could relate to Suze in this scenario. Her dramatic exit from Paul Slater’s home was great, and the visual of her walking along the scenic route in the boiling sun all the while clutching her prized Jimmy Choos in an act of defiance is so, so memorable. I just adore Suze as a character and it’s moments like these that remind me why. Suze and Jesse’s relationship is all MAKE OR BREAK this book. Should they pursue something that’s a lost cause? Is Jesse really interested in Suze as more than a friend? Should she give up on the whole thing entirely? I feel that this book really solidified them as a couple, and I can’t wait to see how it plays out from here. Re-reading this series has been like experiencing it for the first time all over again. Now that we’re almost at the end of the series (for now), it’s great to see that some new twists and turns are being thrown into the pot. We find out that Suze isn’t just a plain old mediator, and that Paul is keeping secrets – no surprises there. What his motive is, for being so interested in Suze, is unclear, but it makes for great reading. I can’t wait to revisit what happens in the final instalment, Heaven Sent.

    In Grave Doubt the fifth book of the Mediator series Suzie is drawn to Paul, a fellow mediator who is a new student at her school. In the previous book Paul spent his time trying to win Suzie over but he has made it clear he has no interest in helping the recently deceased despite her protests. Suzie is weary of him but she can't help admire his good looks. Not only that but Paul has information Suzie needs and with his knowledge she might find out she isn't just your average mediator.

Throw in Jake bringing home a haunted friend for dinner, a massive party and a jealous Jesse and you have a whole load of chaos waiting for you! I loved this book, it was full of angst. That's the only way of describing it! This was definitely a addictive read, not educational or intellectual in the slightest but great nevertheless. Suzie didn't annoy me at all in this book which is a rarity. I actually related to her and felt sorry for her. I mean she's in love with someone who is dead, that must mess you up a little! I understood why Suzie let her guard down with Paul, her loneliness really shone through. I thought it was so funny that she had such bad blisters from walking home from Paul's in her new shoes and it was cute when Jesse bandaged her up! I loved the Party setting towards the end of the book and I could visualize everybody watching the fight between Jesse and Paul, it was pretty amusing to be honest. I'm glad Jesse finally stood up for what was rightfully his and I hope he doesn't back away from Suzie in the next book. I loved that Ceecee made that little comment about Jesse and I'm glad she figured out Suzie's boyfriend is a ghost. Hopefully Suzie will confine in her because I think she's a pretty good friend for putting up with her madness. Overall, loved this book and this series gets better with every instalment!

Paul claims to know what, exactly, they are, why they communicate with ghosts and what else they can do. But Suze doesn’t know why he’s so intent on teaching her about their similar powers. Unless he’s lonely…? Is that why he so creepily continues to talk to her even after her many rejections of him? Is that why he kisses her the day he invites her over to his place under the pretense of learning more about mediators? Meanwhile, Suze’s relationship with the hot ghost who haunts her room, Jesse, has been awkward and littered with silences. It seems to have been this way ever since they kissed several weeks ago. Despite the strain in their friendship as a result, Suze can’t help but fall more in love with Jesse every day, even though she knows that loving a guy who’s been already dead for 150 years won’t bode well for her future. To make matters worse, once Jesse finds out that Paul has recently transferred to Suze’s school, there could be the blowout of a lifetime, as two hot, headstrong forces collide with one another in a battle for, much to her surprise, Suze’s heart. HAUNTED is full of fun and romance with a paranormal twist. I am a hearty proponent of the impossible romance between Suze and Jesse, but Paul definitely makes this series all the more interesting. Gotta love Meg Cabot and her wonderful characters.

    You can also read this review on my blog. This review applies to the entire Mediator Series. The Mediator Series was my first series read of the year and let me tell you, it was a fantastically FUN way to start off my reading year. The series follows Suze Simon who has the ability to see, to talk to, and to beat up - whatever the occasion warrants - ghosts in order to send them on their way to the afterworld. The series was completed after six books in 2005, with an added novella and seventh novel You can also read this review on my blog. This review applies to the entire Mediator Series.

The series was completed after six books in 2005, with an added novella and seventh novel set a decade later in 2016. Suze Simon is definitely the best part of the series for me. I would want to be BFFs with her if not for the fact that I am convinced that she is WAY too cool for me. This girl has more personality in her pinkie finger than most protagonists have developed over the course of an entire book. Suze's singular sass, nerve, and fashion sense put her right up there with The Greats Buffy Summers and Veronica Mars, in my mind. In fact, the Mediator Series reads a lot like those teen serialized TV shows set in small town California that follow a new story each episode, in addition to being easy entertainment to take in. This is my first Meg Cabot read - can you believe it? And if all of her protagonists are as fun as Suze Simon, then I am looking forward to reading more from her. I'm curious, which are the Meg Cabot books that I absolutely must read next? I would love recommendations!

    Re-read in 2020: Unfortunately, there is no unabridged audio for this book, so I had to read the ebook. Which is fine, but I really missed Johanna Parker's awesome narration. In this book, the ghostly case takes a backseat for the Paul, Suze, and Jesse drama. It gets a bit annoying toward the end because Paul just can't stop goading Jesse and the usually-calm Jesse gets pissed off easily because of Paul. I kind of wanted Suze to bitch slap both of them lol. But she's a teenage girl in love lol. A Re-read in 2020: Unfortunately, there is no unabridged audio for this book, so I had to read the ebook.

And there was quite the revelation at the end about Paul's grandpa. Paul is such a fascinating anti hero and I want to know everything about him and his family. It's interesting that both he and his younger brother are mediators. And as it turns out, so is his grandfather. I wonder if it's a family thing? I'm not sure if this is something Cabot will explore further in the next book. As for Suze and Jesse, they had a good ending here and they finally confessed their feelings for each other. These two need to learn how to communicate lol. I'm excited for the final book in the original series!

    2.5, but barely Now that I've had time to settle my thoughts, I will still say I have mixed feelings about this book. It isn't as tightly plotted as the past books, but that might not be a bad thing. There were enjoyable parts to this book. However, in the end, what really made it less enjoyable for me was that the book has the bad communication plot line to keep a romantic pairing apart. I despise plot lines that can easily be resolved with honest, open communication because so often, they are do 2.5, but barely Now that I've had time to settle my thoughts, I will still say I have mixed feelings about this book.

I despise plot lines that can easily be resolved with honest, open communication because so often, they are done poorly. I really do not believe that this bad communication sprung organically. It felt forced, and it was obvious that they needed to have bad communication only to further the plot/add DRAMA to the plot. It was so silly, I just wanted the farce to be done. The ending to the last book was so misleading. It wasn't all bad. There were interesting bits and I was correct in thinking that the sixth book would be the best. This book, unfortunately, must exist as a bridge to the final book. I just wish it had better execution. So, yeah. My least favorite book in the series, I'm sad to say.

    Well this series took a turn for the worst. I love The Mediator series. I adore Suze and her tough, kickass nature. And I've grown fond of the other characters: Suze's stepbrothers, Jesse, CeeCee, to name a few. I do like this series. But Haunted was probably the worst book in this series so far. Paul is a pushy, invasive, patronizing piece of shit who does not understand the meaning of the word "no", and I hate him with the fire of a thousand suns. Someone kill him.

There's literally nothing happening in this one. There's just some love triangle-esque, romantic angsty bullshit. Can Suze and Jesse just admit they have feelings for each other so Suze can get back to ghost busting and kicking ass? Ugh. I have two simple requests for the next book: Suze needs to resume her badassery, and Paul needs to fuck off. That's literally it. Tl;dr version- So fucking disappointed with this one. Paul is the bane of my existence. He literally ruined the entire book.

    2 Apr 2016 March 2009 Suze, like film Buffy, must once again fight evil with her kick-ass fighting skills and her fashion sense. That is entertainment. A reread to prep me for the new Mediator stories to come with Suze as an adult. Is there a girl raised on Nancy Drew who wouldn't love to see her after college, still coming up with clever ways to defeat villainy? No, there isn't.
