So this series was one of the first in this intended age group that I came across for review. I honestly expected little so after the first book I was amazed at my own level of enjoyment and in a way I convinced myself that my impression was based a bit more on the fact that the book surpassed my expectation rather than the true validity of the book.

So....not long after, I am ALWAYS behind on reviews the second book became available and by now, surely, I must be over the fact that book surprised

Mrs. Cassar, you have truly given me a challenge for a review on Forever Kansas! How do I put into words how Brennan makes me melt even though I know he is but a character, and what a character he is! I can see him clearly in my mind. His stance, his mannerisms, his cute dimples and when he runs his hand through his dark hair when he is exasperated or amazed by something Ruby has done......SWOON.......
I like where the author chooses to jump into Ruby and Brennan's story, as far as the whole seri

It was absolutely wonderful reliving the series through Brennan’s POV.
So many emotions! I loved how, the same story I’ve already read seemed so different in this book. I would have liked it to go from the beginning of the series, to see how Brennan saw their relationship change as a whole. Now just from when stayed in Ruby’s realm almost full time. I would have liked to see his take on the fighting the dragon, his feelings of when Ruby was saved by the mermaid. I know it would have taken much mu

A while back I had a chance to read a Beta copy of the first half of the book and I adored every single minute of it. I couldn't wait to get started on the finished copy and it did not disappoint me at all. Forever Kansas is a companion novel to the Ruby Series and ideally to be read after Forever Blue. It's is told from Brennan POV and I think is quite possibly my favourite title in the Ruby Blue World.

Forever Kansas is told from Brennan's Pov instead of Ruby's. I loved Brennan in the original

I've enjoyed the Ruby Blue series from the very beginning. Cassar spins an enchanting and fun tale full of adventure from the first page. I was so excited to hear there was another book coming out that I hounded her without remorse. (You know, that whole 'squeaky wheel' thing.) My persistence paid off.

Forever Kansas is written from Brennan's point-of-view offering faithful readers a fuller, more rounded look at the world she's shared with us. Just for a while, suspend your disbelief and embrace

Sweet Stars of Mars, this author, Juile Cassar, knocks this story out of the ball park. This is the companion novel of The Ruby Blue Series and you must read those books first. Like The Ruby Blue series, we follow along with our favorite characters and which was Ruby's POV. Brennan finally gets heard loud and clear and we feel all his emotions along the way. Believe me you will really feel everything he did because of the way the story is written. Sometimes we have to be just as patient as he wa ...more

Since I got the privilege of reading Forever Kansas, I wanted to let you know how FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC it is! You get to relive a lot of great parts of Ruby's story through Brennan's eyes and what a wonderful view it is! Hearing Brennan's point of view adds so much more depth to the connection that we already know that exists between him and Ruby. This book is so much more than Brennan's point of view though. It adds to the original seriously new info/events...and believe me, there ar ...more

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK IN THE ENTIRE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why you ask? Not only do you get to relive everything that went on, but you get to hear it from Brennan's point of view! You get to feel what he is feeling, and see what he is thinking! That is all I am going to tell you, because if you haven't read this series, you are totally missing out! If you have read this series, this makes the entire series perfect! That is all I am going to sa

Hoping there is a Forever Fey in the near future!
If this were on the big screen it would most definitely hit the Top 10 List of the year!!
I've been looking forward to this novel since I finished book 4, Forever Blue, but I was not sufficiently prepared for this magnitude of this journey. If you have read this fabulous series then you should understand (at least somewhat) my thoughts. Prepare yourself for the word vomit about to spew. I was utterly stunned & could not even write what I thought i

Forever Kansas

I didn’t think I would like YA, so even though I have owned the Ruby Blue series for over a year, I didn’t give it a chance. Until a few months ago. Then I fell in love with Ruby, Brennen, Anya, and Jeremy. Forever Kansas is the last two books of the series told from Brennen’s POV (with some tidbits we didn’t know about added in). Ruby is Brennen’s entire world and we get to see inside his heart and head.

This is the fifth and final book in the Ruby Blue Series. I absolutely LOVED it!

Brennan Kaelin is a fantastic character. I wasn't sure if I liked him when I met him in Ruby Blue, because he came across as a bit arrogant at times. However, as this series has progressed, I have grown to love him.

I have been eagerly awaiting this book's release, ever since the author first said she was going to write it.This is a most exciting and un-put-down-able read! I was completely hooked from t

In this moment, everything became crystal clear. She was it. I suddenly and passionately knew, with all my being and all of my spirit. Oona said as much…Gra` mo chroi go deo. Ruby was it. The love of my heart forever. My Kansas.

Ever read a story and when all was said and done you thought..."Hey, that author really should write a book in so-and-so's POV”? Yeah. That is exactly what I thought when I read the whole series of Ruby Blue. And I am beyond thankful that Cassar took up that task and

If you haven't yet read the first four novels I recommend reading them first before this book. In this companion novel, you journey through the point of view of Brennan who has a great affection for Ruby. You see her trials and tribulations through his eyes and his affections for her. This novel maintains the adventure, quirky sarcasms, and laughs while you are able to see a softer and more romantic side of Rubies love interest. It gives you a better idea of what he was thinking and feeling beca ...more

Wow! I adored this book! It was so great to read everything from Brennan's POV! During the series, I often wondered what he was thinking and whether his thoughts would be like a human's or more alien....well, fairy-like, and I'm happy to report that this book answered that question and SO many more! It answered questions I didn't even know I had; it was that thorough! I really can't express in words how much I appreciate the author taking the time to give us fans something so unexpected and awes ...more

Cassar does it again, weaving her magical gift of words in this story of fairies, dragons, trolls, friends and true love. It is touted as Brennan's point of view, but it is really true loves ... point of view. Ruby is truly an awe inspiring character as is her one and only true love, Prince Brennan. Forever Kansas is the 'icing on the cake' of the Ruby Blue Series. I can SO see this series as a movie ---even MORE exciting than Twilight and Hunger Games. Way to go Julie! Thank you for sharing you ...more

Finished another series! I am trying to tie up loose ends by finishing all of the series I started. At some point I will have to read them all over again sequentially. I forgot that the series was in Ruby's POV, it has been that long since I've read the last book! So I am glad we got to hear from Brennan. I just wish I remembered the previous reads.

Alas, I shall finish my other series and hopefully get back to re-read this one at some point in the future!

This series is absolutely adorable, it brings out the kid in me. I think the author did a great job re-telling the story from another characters point of view. I love having the behind the "fairy" glimpse, and how he sees things. The pure love and adoration for Ruby and how he upholds the fairy values. Fantastic story if you enjoy unique paranormal stories, classic romance or at most part a comedy. ...more

I enjoyed the series. The characters are well-developed. Looking forward to reading the newest series Julie is currently developing!

To loosely quote Jeremy, this book was FAN-FLIPPING-TABULOUS! (Or something like that). Anyway, I loved this book. It was more than interesting to have Brennan’s point of view. His perspective and experiences through the events added so much detail to an already incredible story. And the ending - OMIGOSH! I can’t say much because *spoilers* but the end hits you right in the feels. (Unless you have a heart of stone, in which case you absolutely need to read this series, this book included.)

This review is for the audio version, see my previous review for a more thorough content review. The narrator for the audio version is perfect! He sounds just like I imagined Brennan, with a heavy Irish brogue. Tone, inflection, and clarity are great and overall a very well job done.

I enjoyed reading everything from "The Prince's" point of view. It was fun hearing his thoughts and seeing his true feeling.
Sep 24, 2014 rated it it was amazing
I really enjoyed reading the highlights of the series, from Brennan's pov. I did have difficulty adjusting to his "voice", though, because it is drastically different from Ruby's. That should be considered a compliment to the author, as she is obviously able to genuinely capture the essence of each of her characters and truly bring them to life.

I did wish for more at the end of the book. Although, I will not disclose what kind of "more", as I try very hard not to share spoilers. (Surprises are t

Copied and pasted from the last book with a few extra words and lines added in. I was completely disappointed because I really enjoyed the characters and the worlds Julie created and I wanted more, instead I got a replay,word for word no less. This book was a waste of time for me, for the writer and everyone else involved with this book.
