A boy from a hidden world.
When Celeste starts at a new school in a small, Kansas town, she hears whispering voices, has vivid nightmares, and swarms of blackbirds follow her every move. She is oddly drawn to aloof Rylan, the other new student who has his own secrets.
The exact moment she turns seventeen, she wakes to a bedroom full of strange creatures, purple light emanating from her hands, and Rylan breaking in through her bedroom window.
He knows what she is . . .
Intriguing and deeply romantic, RUA is page-turning YA novel with a supernatural twist.
Rua started good. It was straight to the point, and was both refreshing and a bit common for me.
Refreshing in a way that the characters' 'being' was new for me, the unnatural events, their powers and everything. Its common-ness falls unto the high school scenes such a meeting the boy, having an annoying popular girl (that will be the one to be in between her and the boy), an impossibly cool best friend. .. and I don't think I liked the combination of two.
The highlight of this book, was obviously, the well-thought 'being' of the main characters. I just can't understand why it has that kind of ending. I think the story deserves more adventure and a sequel, because if it really was the ending, it would appear more like a dream to me. The book has to have a story that would bring us to Rua's world more and meet a lot of their kind, as well.
It was good and I think a lot of you would like this one.
Paranormal, urban fantasy lovers!
