In this, the second instalment of Meg Cabot's Mediator series, the author cranks up both the suspense and the chill factor. Barely recovered from her last paranormal encounter, heroine Susanna Simon faces even greater challenges. This time, the enemy she faces is not of the ghostly variety, but real flesh and blood. She must also deal with her growing feelings for Jesse, her ghost room mate. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. My only complaint is that I wish the cryptic message left by a ghost could have been better explained. I'd like to know how the heroine actually worked it out. Great for teens and adults alike.

I listened to this book to get a feel for what my 13 year old daughter was reading. I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. The plot was interesting, the main character was reasonably well developed, and I ended up caring about the outcome. The author taps into teenage girl angst without being overly dramatic or sappy. I thought it might be a struggle to get through, but instead it was enjoyable.

Where does Ninth Key rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I keep enjoying hearing Johanna Parker, she has a great voice and makes the stories come to life. She helps the Mediator Series come alive. Highly recommend!!!
What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?
Everything. She is very enjoyable.

This being her second book in the series is just as good as her first. The only downside is that she is a bit redundant in this book. In this story she fills you in with practically everything that happened in the previous book, so if you listened to the first book and then this one she rather wasted alot of time. After I got through with the outline of the first book this story line really took off. I hope she doesn't do that in the next book of the series, if you haven't heard the books in succesion than it would make you want to learn what happened in book 1.
