Meridian deals with a new breed of paranormal beings- Fenestras and Aternoctis- good and bad part angels that help guide souls to heaven or hell (not religion specific, it is said in the book there are many different names that religions and peoples give the places). The characters are easy to like, and Meridian has a genuine voice, I would love to read more from her. Tens is brooding and a protector, so he is good in my book. Auntie is easy to love yet easy to get frustrated with as she gives information little by little. There is a wolf that is a protector and semi-pet, and Custos is a great addition. The story is paced well, and kept my attention the whole time. It didn't have as much action as it could have, but I am okay with that. The ending ties things up well, but leaves me wanting the sequel.
