Ruby White has burnt her bridges. She has no job, no direction in life, and just enough money to last a month. if she eats only rice and her cat catches his own meals. When her best friend, Anise, holds a dress-up party, Ruby drowns her sorrows and meets Damien, whose vampire costume belies his sweet nature.
With time on her hands, Ruby soon finds herself at a seminar for those who are Hyper-Auto-Aware, a condition she never knew existed, run by the Jaasmyn Empire, a company she's never heard of. To Ruby's astonishment, and that of those who know her, she is offered a job.
Ruby's talent of guesswork and sarcasm propel her through the corridors of power until the final, hilarious climax and Ruby understands what a 'new age' life can truly bring.
For those who secretly suspect that there are a few oddballs in the metaphysical movement, put your feet up and immerse yourself in this laugh out loud, witty and biting novel.

This book was right down my alley - I ran mediation classes, have done reiki healing and have had the odd 'vision' and received messages that I have never completely understood. I have come into contact with countless others through the metaphysical work I do - and I tell you - read this book, open your eyes and be very aware. There are lots of people out there that are whacky!!!!!!!!!!!! PMSL.

This book was well researched - the story I feel told truthfully through the eyes of someone who has seen charletons at work ... Ruby was at an all time low, and from that point, she was fair game to all the rogues out there.

Sit back - do put your feet up and enjoy this read. Nice story, with a nice ending. :)

RATING : 7/10
