Ruby Red

There has been a dramatic change in Ruby’s physique and irises – they no longer belong to the weak pink Pastel race. Is it simply the results of the vertic switz ink that Alex tattooed on her, or is there more to it than she is ready to admit? Ruby’s path to change the color system in Zadok appears to be taking a completely different route from Jax’s plan for her. Torn between her feelings for Alex, the enemy of her race, and Jax, she is again faced with a threatening situation. Only this time, the danger extends beyond Zeeks’ territory.

A prequel to Pastel Pink, the first book in the Zadok Series, author Nikki Minty further explores in Ruby Red the other lands and inhabitants of Zadok. The reader is allowed to examine some of the complicated characters, the characters left for the reader to contemplate in the first book. The ruthless and unpredictable sister to Ruby, Floss’s void in life is explicitly examined. Ruby’s character is contradictory to her feelings and reckless at times. Still, given her circumstance of being stuck between two of Zadok’s most eligible bachelors, it becomes hard to blame her.

The introduction to the other regions of Zadok and the people living there – the fascinating village of Spring and the winged Ruke Acacia – will capture the readers’ attention as much as they did Ruby’s. Additionally, readers will enjoy the unexpected romance angle that appears in the story between the two characters with contradictory-personality. It’s vital to say Ruby Red gets a step ahead in terms of action, diverse setting, and romance, completing the missing part of the previous book.

Aside from offering additional interesting characters from other races, this imaginative novel doubles up on its fascinating plot with its magical aspect. While this is a story full of moral dilemmas, readers will find that none of the main characters can claim triumph over the other in being morally right. 

Ruby Red will not disappoint fans of the Zadok series. Teen and young adult readers that love fantasy and magical realism will thoroughly enjoy this riveting novel. However, since the novel’s plot precedes the plot of Zadok’s first novel and the plots are highly interconnected, new readers should begin with the first book in the series.
