Forever Kansas ~ Review

Forever Kansas by Julie Cassar 
a Ruby Blue Series Companion Novel
Publication Date: November 14, 2014
“She will be the death of me one day. I swear, she will.”

In this companion novel to the best selling Ruby Blue Series, Brennan Kaelin, Fairy Prince and Heir to the throne of the Earthen Royal Court in Fey, reveals his inner most desires and struggles. In a world where the four Royal Courts and three Realms collide, an even deeper connection is unearthed as more secrets of Fey are exposed. Relive Ruby’s adventures through Brennan’s eyes as he searches to discover the mysteries shrouding the prophesy of the One with The Elements. 
*Author’s note: This novel is meant to be read after “Forever Blue” (Book 4 of the Ruby Blue Series). It discloses additional information to Ruby and Brennan’s story, however, some key plot points of Ruby Blue are intentionally left out's a little known secret: 
This cover, is the same exact image Julie used for book 1 "Ruby Blue"... and It's a photograph of driftwood on the beach at Lake Superior... She wanted to (as they say in the "Princess Bride"), Go back to the beginning...
Julie is so awesome!

If this were on the big screen it would most definitely hit the Top 10 List of the year!!

I've been looking forward to this novel since I finished book 4, Forever Blue, but I was not sufficiently prepared for this magnitude of this journey. If you have read this fabulous series then you should understand (at least somewhat) my thoughts. Prepare yourself for the word vomit about to spew. I was utterly stunned & could not even write what I thought immediately. Talk about a book hangover!
For those of you that have not ... here goes: Julie has this magical way of transporting us right into this amazing world she has created with these characters who call to us even after a year of last reading their tales. It truly takes a talented author to be able to go back & re-tell this huge chunk of life full of so many memories & happenings of some of my all time favorite characters from a different POV without skipping a beat. A whole year later! I was thoroughly blown away by the fact that I enjoyed this story SO much more than I already had!! Especially being told by our favorite swoon worthy fairy! Aaaaahhh sweet Brennan!!
Now for those of you who have no idea who this hottie is let me fill you in a bit ... we have Ruby: the feisty teen who will make you giggle 'til it hurts, Leo: Ruby's lil' brother who loves to annoy & embarrass her whenever possible, Anya: one of Ruby's BFFs who happens to be a fairy princess (of all things! I know it's terrific!
