After falling for Ezra and discovering a gateway to the Otherworld, it’s a truism Ruby knows to take to heart. But La Luna finally feels like home, and with graduation just weeks away and a cushy internship on a nearby archeological dig in her pocket, it’s easy to downplay the strange new events taking place in the Glorieta Pass. Even when Angel’s deadbeat father reappears after twenty years, stirring up questions about Angel, the ruin, and Ruby’s mother.
Praise for Wide Open Faces“A powerful book which both stands nicely alone and compliments Between Wild and Ruin . . . absolutely enthralling reading.” —Midwest Book Review
“Between Wild and Ruin is a stunning story of legends, romance, and destiny with themes of starting over, small towns, beauty, and community . . . Edelson perfectly breathes new life in mythology by honoring the oral tradition of a small community and the ruins that bring to life Ruby’s destiny.” —Manhattan Book Review
“Highly recommended to mature teens through new adult and adult audiences, this is a story that lingers in the mind long after its final revelation.” —Midwest Book Review
“A great addition to young adult urban fantasy.” —Seattle Book Review
“Descriptions of the New Mexico landscape are rich and atmospheric, arousing the senses with references to the scent of smoke and juniper, the predatory roar of mountain lions, and the brilliant dazzle of stars in the desert sky . . . The writing conveys a sense of timelessness, making it easy to believe Ruby’s sense that the land is spirit-haunted and that Leo, the handsome young man she encounters near the ruins, is somehow connected to it all.” —Clarion Forward
“An intriguing historical tale and an over-the-top love-quadrangle romance.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The paranormal aspects of the tale are credible and richly steeped in traditional lore, and the plot is finely crafted . . . Between Wild and Ruin is most highly recommended.” —Reader’s Favorite (5-Star Review)
I was so excited to get my hands on this one when I saw it, and man was it a good one! It’s one of those books that immediately hook you and require you to finish it as soon as possible. It’s just such an easy read while also being expertly crafted. And that’s before even mentioning the amazing writing in this book! Everything about it made Wild Open Faces such a joy to read.
So, let me just say that when you start this book you need to buckle up. Because there is SO MUCH that goes on and you just need to be ready for one thing after the other. But even with all of that action, the plot isn’t just tossed aside. There is still development and a really solid story throughout the book. And the characters were perfectly imperfect. Some terrible decisions and questionable judgement was found throughout, but to me that makes them all the more realistic.
Overall I really enjoyed this one even more than I had expected. There was just so much that was delivered and it was done in such an excellent way. And make sure that if you haven’t already to read book one! And with one and two out already you can just binge them one after the other!
