Blurb (from Goodreads):
When her best friend is kidnapped, Ruby will stop at nothing to rescue him.

Criminals run the streets of Bombay. Jam-packed with the worst degenerates. The city is a shell of the pride and joy it used to be.

Ruby knows something must be done, but it isn’t until her best friend is kidnapped by the despotic Dr. Braganza that she knows that she and she alone must save city, save her best friend, save the world from total destruction.

Armed only with with Vikram, a cop-turned-rogue they are about to embark on a road they may never return from.

If you’re looking for fast-paced books like Hunger Games or dystopia fiction like Angelfall, the Ruby Iyer series is perfect for you.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer (Ruby Iyer Series, #1)

“And now that I’ve told you, I can never let you go.”

This wasn’t quite what I was expecting, and I found it a little confusing.

Ruby went a little crazy in this story, and seemed to almost have a death wish, especially when she followed someone who jumped off a bridge! Her thoughts seemed to be a little scattered, and I had a hard time keeping up with her.

The storyline in this was also a bit hard to follow. We had Ruby being attacked and electrocuted, and then she was trying to find her kidnapped house mate, and then she was being shot at, and I did get a bit confused.
There was some romance, but that had some odd moments too. I’m still a little unsure exactly what is going on between Ruby and Vikram, and whether he feels the same way she does.

“What is it about this guy that even seeing him hurt turns me on?”

The ending to this didn’t hold many answers unfortunately, so we were left with a bit of a cliff-hanger.
