After finishing Rua by Miranda Kavi I can easily say I am such a fan now, I will deff be picking up anything Miranda writes in the future after reading Rua. This book completely had me hooked from page one till the end, Miranda creates a new paranormal that is immensely captivating.

Celeste is just a normal girl. Or at least she likes to think she is, she may have purple eyes, and crows following her, but that doesn’t mean she’s not human right? As more and more strange happenings go on around Celeste she can no longer deny that she is not like other people, and the new mysterious boy with intense green eyes may be able to tell her what she is..

When you find out your own kind and ancient powerful beings want you dead, who can you trust?

What a refreshing read Rua turned out to be, going into Rua I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I have to admit. This book took me by total surprise! Miranda has come out with a wonderful debut novel, full of magic, thrill, romance, and mystery.

When it comes to the characters I thoroughly enjoyed them! Although it did have the whole mean girl and gay best friend like a lot of other YA novels do I still found the characters unique and enjoyable. You have Celeste our main character who although she is scared, she will face her fears head on to save the ones she love, you have Tink (it’s his nickname…Tink is my puppies name so that was a bonus! Ha) who is Celeste’s best friend who is always there for her, you have supportive and loving parents from both Celeste and Tink, and then there’s Rylan…the mysterious hot guy at the school! At first when confronted with Rylan I didn’t really like him, mainly because he was too confusing and I didn’t really ‘get him’ but when I continued on reading I ended up loving him! He is an amazing love interest and I cannot wait to read more of him and Celeste in book two.

Overall if you’re looking for something fresh and new, that has an intense romance (and is amazing) Then I would recommend Rua to you, Miranda Kavi is an amazing new author that will not disappoint.

Didn't like it

I didn't like how easily you found everything out in this book. As soon as she meets the guy he basically tells her she's not human, at least I figured it out by what he was saying, I'm not sure she knew yet. I just wasn't intrigued at all. I need some suspense.
