About the Author

Ruthanne Reid was raised in the woods, but fortunately her isolation was offset by regular visits to New York City. She pursued music for years before realizing she wanted to tell stories rather than sing them.

Ruthanne has lived on both US coasts (she prefers the West one), is distantly related to royalty, and has sung in a thousand-year-old cathedral. Her favorite authors tend to be dramatic (J. R. R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss), but she doesn?t see this as a bad thing.

Writing in and around Seattle, she owns dust-covered degrees in music and religion, and is generally considered dangerous around household electronics. She belongs to a husband, a housemate, and a cat, respectively.

The Sundered is her first novel.

“The Sundered” by Ruthanne Reid is definitely not a typical post-apocalyptic-style novel. The 'bad water' and creative characters are very creative and well-developed. Even without being commonplace in today's world, they easily come to life through the well-written descriptions. I was apprehensive, at first, when I saw that this book was written in first person, present tense, but it was masterfully done and added an extra layer or two to the story –as well as making the reader/ character bond even stronger. I was thrilled by the absence of tense-slips. I cannot remember once instance in which the tense slipped into the more popular past-tense. The lack of conveniences and technologies from the modern world is handled in a believable manner when other 'creative forces' are not employed which really drew me into the story. It really came to life. This book was refreshing from beginning to end in not only its creativity, but also its originality. The mystery and unpredictability of the story kept everything moving right along –I literally did not put it down once I started reading. Aside from the creativity in the main idea and created characters, it is also resoundingly present throughout the story –in the turns, twists, characters, and the situation in which the characters find themselves. There were at least two twists that I really did not see coming which was a very pleasant shock! The only things that I could point out as areas for improvement would be there were a few minor typos that could be fixed, and I felt like details and memories from the main character's childhood and earlier life could have been introduced earlier in the book. The latter is just personal preference as I always love knowing about a character's history so as to feel more connected to with them as early as possible. All in all, this book would satisfy book fans from across many genres and, to me, is a must read for any fans of fantasy, horror, sci-fi, mystery, and/or the aforementioned post-apocalyptic-style.
