Synopsis from Goodreads:
A girl with an unknown destiny.

A boy from a hidden world.

When Celeste starts at a new school in a small, Kansas town, she hears whispering voices, has vivid nightmares, and swarms of blackbirds follow her every move. She is oddly drawn to aloof Rylan, the other new student who has his own secrets.

The exact moment she turns seventeen, she wakes to a bedroom full of strange creatures, purple light emanating from her hands, and Rylan breaking in through her bedroom window.
He knows what she is . . .

Intriguing and deeply romantic, RUA is page-turning YA novel with a supernatural twist.

My Review:
I liked the development and progression of the story but I thought that there seemed to be a lot left out.  Explanations for certain things were vague and the story was kind of choppy in parts.
The character of Celeste never really did anything for me, I did not find her particularly inspirational or even that strong, I felt like she was too one dimensional.  Rylan was kind of the same with a vague past and personality.  Tink on the other hand was one of my favorites, his personality was like bam in your face and hilarious, he did not try and hide anything. 

I was intrigued enough by this book that I think I will continue to read the series but it needs to be developed more.
