From the author of Charlie and Lola, Lauren Child closes off the Ruby Redfort series with one last action-packed book and leaves readers begging for me.
Thank you for Netgalley for sending me an ARC copy of this book.
I’m proud to say I’ve read the whole Ruby Redfort series now and have been absolutely amazed by this finale.
Ruby Redfort started out as a made up book in the Clarice Bean series but eager fans wanted it to be real, for there to be an actual Redfort series. And so the six book deal with Harper Collins was made and this review came about.
Say goodbye to Ruby Redfort: every smart kid’s smart kid. The mind-blowing conclusion to the thrilling series by award-winning author Lauren Child.
Ruby Redfort: undercover agent, code-cracker and thirteen-year-old genius – you can count on her when the ice starts to crack.
All good things come to an end… Ruby Redfort is running scared, a whole bunch of people want her dead and worst of all one of them is on her team. But just who is this agent of doom?
You can run, Ruby, but you can’t hide…
This was my first ARC!! Can you believe it? I’d never thought my request would get accepted and when It did get accepted, I was ecstatic!! Reading a book before it’s been published? It was crazy, fun and exciting, especially since I had been waiting for this finale FOREVER!! I downloaded it straight away and began to read!
There were SO many plot-twists. seriously. Every page was filled with a new surprise: the mole, Bradley Baker, L.B, SO MUCH. And just when you thought you knew the answer, another plot twist would smack you in the face.
These books haven never been ones to make you weep, there more the -edge-of-your-seat, who’s gonna die books. So, it was strange to see some tragic deaths in this book. But I liked it.
Evil in this book was EVIL. More sneaky plans, secrets and dastardly deaths. Though I would’ve loved to see more of the Count in this book and though the EVIL was nice, there wasn’t enough of it.
The mystery(ies) in this book were AWESOME! Ruby deals with them really well and is being a genius as always!! And her contact lenses and the mushroom mystery was JUST….
I can’t believe it’s the last in the series. While so many things were solved, there was a lot that wasn’t solved. I mean the Count didn’t die. There were so many questions from previous books that were supposed to be answered in this book. I was a little disappointed with the series as a whole. Though this book was really amazing!
The plot twists were what sold this book to me. I didn’t see half of them coming, to be perfectly honest. As my first ARC, I was extremely happy! Do I recommend it? No. What? Yes, but not as a stand alone. Please don’t read this book if you haven’t read the others. If you have, YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!:D
