My Thoughts

The plot included intrigue, excitement, and unexpected twists that were all present. You cannot even predict what will happen next in this book because it was so brilliantly written and well-thought out; it captivates you and makes you want to read more. I cannot wait to go on my next adventure with Kat.

About Ruby Fox

Ruby Fox is an award-winning Australian fiction writer, screenwriter, and storyteller, who also still dreams of being a rock star —but let’s face it, that ship has probably sailed.

Ruby writes all the things but has a particular penchant for tricky tales, comedy that stabs you in the feels, rom-coms, stuff that is high-camp and scary as f*ck, and LGBTIQ stories. If there’s magic, pop stars, or vampires in the mix, all the better.

She likes hot yoga, tattoos, and cheese but not in that order. Mostly the cheese comes first. Her dog, Lola, is the love of her life and—by the time you read this—she could be living literally anywhere in the world. She hasn’t made up her mind yet.
