The Mediator

The Mediator

The Mediator is a series which contains six novels written by Meg Cabot. The first four novels were originally published under Cabot's pseudonym Jenny Carroll by Simon and Schuster. The last two books were published by HarperCollins and under Meg Cabot's name.

Cabot stated that she originally planned the series as an eight-book arc, but because of poor sales only got the chance to write six. In several posts on her blog and forums she stated that she has the plot of an "epilogue/sequel" on file, and needs only the time to write it out.

The series follows along with a girl named Susannah "Suze" Simon and her experiences as a teenage mediator - a person who has abilities to see, touch and talk to ghosts, and main goal is to help them to the "Great Beyond" (after life). She is able to travel to the Shadow Land (Land of Damnation). In the end of the series, Suze finds out that she is able to travel in time. The books are written in first-person narrative from Suze's perspective.

Suze's problem is that she was in love with a nineteenth century ghost known as Hector de Silva, or what she calls him, Jesse. Since he is an undead, no one other than Suze and some other mediators (Paul, Father Dominic, Dr Slaski and Jack) can see him. Suze frequently recalls that she cannot even introduce him to her parents. Jesse's rival is a fellow mediator, Paul, who Suze calls "The Spawn of Satan" and she does not express any feelings for him. He frequently taunts Jesse about his mortality, and states that he is a better person for Suze. This book is romance–fiction for teenagers and young adults.
