The Ruby Key by Holly Lisle

It isn’t often that you find one of those books. One the reader can’t put down, even when they know they should. It’s past midnight, but they are still reading, knowing they’ll never be able to sleep anyway without knowing how the book is going to end. The Ruby Key was one of those books for me.

Genna and her younger brother Dan live in a magic world where humans travel by day and Nightlings (known to us as fairies) rule the night. One night, in an attempt to save their dying mother’s life, Genna and Dan break the strict laws of their land and risk their lives by leaving the safety of their home after dark, invading the Nightling world. This single event sets off an exciting adventure the reader will never forget. If you love, magic, monsters, dark bargains, prophetic heroes, and a touch of mystery in your books, put this title on hold right away. Those of you out there who loved Fablehaven series, Chronicles of Narnia, or the Spiderwick Chronicles, The Ruby Key is definitely for you!

This first book in the Moon and Sun series far exceeded my expectations in every way. I wait with baited breath for the next book in the series to be written. As quickly as possible, please.
