Fireseed One's 2013 sequel, Ruby's Fire is earning advance praise from reviewers and authors: Ruby's Fire, returns to the sun-scorched earth of Fireseed One. In this long-awaited sequel, Stine delivers a thrilling adventure led by a new and exciting cast of characters. Ruby, Armonk, Thorn and Blane are memorable, and the romance is really well handled. Favorite quote: " It feels wrong to lean on Armonk right now with Blane staring at me, a hungry, lonely look in his eye. It's as if he's never been hugged, never been fed, never been loved..." " -YAs the Word Ruby's Fire, the second novel in the haunting Fireseed series unfolds layer by layer, like a Fireseed plant reaching out and calling you to figure out the mystery, mystery. What's revealed is even creepier than expected in a world already steeped in exotic technology and bioengineered strangeness. Great science fiction imaginatively told, Ruby's Fire is a wonderfully crafted story that will make you think . -Susan Kaye Quinn, indie bestselling author of The Mindjack Trilogy More and more, Catherine enjoys writing speculative tales where her imagination has wild and free reign.
