Review Of Ruby By: Amanda Burke

Author: Amanda Burke
Pages: 174pgs
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: June 29 2012
Publisher:  Solstice Publishing 

SUMMARY:

 During the Salem witch hunts, an evil witch named Natasha Sullivan tricks a demon into confining himself inside an enchanted music box. She casts a spell that foretells that the demon will emerge in an unknown time in future after the birth of a child known as the Lumen Child. This child’s destiny is to bring light to the planet and Natasha knows that if he is killed then darkness will prevail. 

Natasha’s identical twin Sarah, discovers what her sister has done. Although she cannot break the spell she casts her own prophecy. It states that three witches known as the Triple Enchantresses will be born in the same time as the Lumen Child and they will be his supernatural protectors. The girls are not sisters, yet they will share a common destiny. 

Ruby is the story of the first witch and how she very nearly dies before discovering her true identity. Having grown up unaware of her powers, she is rescued by her loving grandmother who is also a white witch and taken back to the family estate where she learns everything she can about what her future holds. 

Ruby is the first in a four book series.


  For starters I wanna thank Amanda Burke for contacting Kelly and I (Lisa)to ask if we would read and review her book called RUBY  it was so nice of her to consider us so here is our review .




My Review:
Ruby is the daughter of a single father as her mother died a couple of years back. When her father is unexpectedly  killed, she comes across s a letter in which her father tells her to go and find/meet her grandmother whom she has never met. Her grandmother turns out to be a powerful witch, and Ruby is a descendant of her family bloodline. Together they embark on a journey in order to teach Ruby how to use her skills and possibly, save their world against an old legend. But then something happens she runs into Blake, a very handsome and rouge warlock .

The read was good but I felt it slowed in some places and the love store left me wanting more to be honest I felt it missed something it almost felt bland I feel the relationship between Ruby & Blake would have worked more as a friendship they would have made great best friends , I also felt that her transformation into a witch happen rather fast I wanted more.
 
My Final Thoughts:

I found Ruby to be a quick read zipped through it about a day and a half I found that with a little tweaking this could be an amazing series. At the moment I feel that this read would do great with a younger teen crowd  but I still found the read intresting and I want to continue with the series as I want to see how everything develops with Ruby.
