“I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.
I was too.”
After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.
As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.
When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.
She chooses poorly.
Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.
Uncaged Review: This is a good action packed urban
fantasy and it’s a non-stop action throughout. I liked
the original concept of this supernatural world and
shifters, but it’s got some confusing moments that the
author skimmed over just figuring the reader would
catch up, which I did, eventually. But since the author
skimmed over some major plot points, I kept thinking
I missed something, but going back, I realized it was
the book, not me. But it all comes together eventually.
I’m not sure I liked the main character of Ruby, she’s
very immature for most of the book, there were times
I wanted to shake her, but I liked the concept and
the book well enough to continue on with the series.
Some of the fight scenes are semi-gory, but the scenes
were not all detailed, just the aftermath. Readers will
have to decide for themselves and have a good ability
to “read between the lines.”
I think the series has a ton of potential, so I’ll be continuing on. Reviewed by Cyrene
