Rubyis a paranormal short story from the Mystic Stones series by Kayla Curry. Curry released this short 5,000-word tale of her two main characters to tease readers into exploring the series, and it definitely works.
The short is a glimpse into the relationship between the two main characters, Ava and Tom. Ava is a leasing agent in a business complex, and her job is basically to rent out offices to wealthy business tenants. Tom, similarly, runs Psytech—one of the companies that rents from the company Ava works for.
The paranormal catch? Tom is a vampire. An important one who works for powerful people. And he wants Ava… both for business and personal reasons.
Because Ruby is just a teaser, we don’t get a lot answers behind Tom’s paranormal nature. Honestly, more questions are raised than answered, but that’s what happens in a teaser. The pacing worked well, and the sections were evenly split between Tom and Ava’s perspectives. It was easy to follow along.
I enjoyed Ruby. There was danger, a hint of romance, and a promise of something exciting to come in the Mystic Stones series. I’d say give it a try—who knows? You might fall in love with the series.
