I enjoyed the Hummingbird Saga by Annie Cosby. It was an entertaining tale of a young girl finding her place in the world and discovering how you are raised can for who you are more that to who you were born as. Ruby at times bothered me but I could understand why she acted the way she was acting. Finding those she loved and cared for lied to her all her life and then being thrown into circumstances you never expected can throw you for a loop. What i really liked about this story were the supporting characters and how she felt about them changed throughout the story.Those she used to trust, she questions. Those she was afraid of became loyal friends. The story ended differently from how I wanted it to end but I see why Ruby makes the decisions she does and I am not sure that the events could have ended much differently.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
While Ruby and Wyn are discussing their plan…a stranger arrives in town. This stranger has everyone talking and quite nervous…but why? Once talk dies down about the stranger, he has left town just as quickly as he arrived. As Wyn tries to enact his plan to earn extra money, he is injured in an accident and this leaves Ruby afraid for him and their plans. At the thought of losing him, Ruby does something that changes their friendship. As she is questioning how their friendship has changed, she is kidnapped in the middle of the night and learns about her past…as unbelieveable and hard to swallow it is. After learning the truth, Ruby isn’t sure who exactly to trust…if anyone.
I’m very glad I came across this saga. It had a little bit of magic, supernatural, love, courage, suspense and coming of age in many ways. Ruby was stuck in a hard place and once she learned the truth, her actions had consequences. She had to learn how to trust when she was thrust into unknown situations. Her true heritage was shocking and it took a while to find out who was truly on her side. She was a child who had no prior experience and in some cases handled things in such a brave manner that it was admirable and yet there were other times where she behaved like the 15-year-old girl that she is. I loved Wyn’s character. He had his flaws, like they all did and he was the boy next door that you want to fall in love with. I would have liked to learn more about Ruby’s interactions with some of the other characters, such as her early experience with Lawrence, her sisters and maybe even her parents.
I would recommend this saga to YA fantasy/coming of age readers because it reminded me of reading a fairy tale…not so much Disney, but more Brothers Grimm. It had that nice mix of adventure, suspense and romance that made me wanting to learn what happened next and kept me invested in the story. I can't wait to see what Annie Cosby has in store for me next!
I loved reading this series. Ruby Beg doesn't have a "real" family that she remembers, but she does have a best friend, Wyn. She loves him, but doesn't know if he feels the same about her. Wyn and Ruby are planning to move away but when she is kidnapped, she finds out the truth about her parents.She finds out her father, The King, was not someone she would be proud to call her father. He did not want his family to fall into the wrong hands and tied them to a tree in the palace and set the tree on fire. But, Wyn, whom was just five years old at the time, was able to get the little princess away and carry her to his home and family. She can't believe Wyn knew about her parents and sisters and kept this from her. Ruby Beg isn't just any orphan, she is the lost princess that many are looking for, some for good and some for more sinister reasons. Ruby has a difficult time trusting but does come to trust the ones that actually kidnapped her. She makes some decisions that I personally question, but understand why she does. As I said before, I really liked this series and can't wait for more from Annie Cosby.
