Book Review-Red Hexed-Ruby-Rachelle Ayala

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

I have always loved reading about the Greek and Roman mythical Gods--they really could get up to all kinds of mischief. Granted the authors usually made some of it up and nobody really knows if they were real or not. Very rarely do you get to read about the Nordic Gods. Rachelle Ayala has spun a tale around them which really had me going. Somehow they even made it into modern times.

Ruby Rush a modern girl's face was horribly disfigured from a propane tank attached to a grill exploded in her face. Half of her face was still as beautiful as ever--the other she hid with a mask. She tried every magic potion etc to try to regain her beauty. One of her friends handed her a mirror--she looks into it and sees a man? He is trying to save the ancient world--she just wants her beauty back--or is that what they really want?

What goes on is obviously fantasy and a whole lot goes on before the happy ending.

When all you need is beauty, and the Devil’s serving boy needs you to play dead—with Hella, the Norse Goddess of Death.

Ruby Rush lost her face to a fire and has been in hiding ever since. When her best friend brings her a magical mirror, she finds herself through the looking glass with Roger Rok, a demigod son of the Norse God of Love.

He’s looking for a berserker sword to stop the end of the world, and in return for her help, promises her a beauty beyond her wildest dreams. But bargains, as well as mirrors and hearts, are made to be broken—especially when Ruby comes face to face with Hella and is whisked away to her icy realm of death.

While Ruby fends with Hella, Roger must deal with the conflicting desires of Odin, Loki, Hella, and Freya while a shapeshifting horsefly turned cockatoo leads or misleads them on their journey to stop Ragnarok.

Ruby tries to protect her heart, and Roger does his best to charm and protect her into helping him navigate modern day San Francisco. As the end of the world draws near, will Ruby discover that Roger’s professed love is not an illusion? More importantly, will Ruby and Roger find what they’re truly looking for?


What if legendary gods and goddesses walk among us on the streets of San Francisco? What if they drop in on you unawares, and what if you fall in love with one?
