Ruby Darkness: Fate of the Rose
“I wondered how tragic his end was-if he suffered or went out easy, if he went first or last; if he really caused it or was simply a victim of circumstance. But the true thought that continued remolding itself in my head was how did we know each other?”
Don’t believe me, take it from a Smashwords review:
I downloaded this book on a whim, and ended up really enjoying in. This was a completely unique world that Leader created and I enjoyed the fast read. The tempo isn’t rushing, because this really has more to do with Ruby figuring out how to get home. However, you certainly won’t get bored because there is always something that Leader has you trying to figure out.
I enjoyed seeing the world through Ruby’s eyes, even if she was a little slow in putting the pieces together. I had already worked out the plot in my head before the book was even halfway over. However, I wasn’t the one in limbo trying to figure out what was going on, I was simply following all of the clues that Leader lays out for the careful reader. But it was still rewarding to see that everything I had guessed played out exactly the way I predicted. *silently bows* 🙂 Ruby’s biggest strength is her heart and willingness to always try and help people (even if it might not be expressed the best way) but that adds to her likability.
Leader drops several clues throughout the book about the Ruby’s destiny, and if I’m not mistaken also the destiny of the entire world and those she cares for-on both sides. The next book or books have a lot to live up to, but I don’t doubt that Leader is up to the task.
I’m definitely excited to read the next book, um now would be great Victoria…… 🙂
