    I knew I was intrigued, but this book really surprised me. It isn't often that a book grabs me right from the beginning and has me wondering what is going to happen next. But Beyond the Red did just that. It was fast-paced and action-packed right from the start. I found myself very interested in the world that I was thrust into, inhabited by humans and an alien race with multicolored eyes and swirling patterns on their skin. This world was nothing like anything I had ever read before and I wanted to know more, more, more. One slight disappointment I had when reading Beyond the Red was the love triangle. It wasn't introduced until about halfway through the book, and I just found it to be unnecessary. I was totally hooked on the story without the love triangle, and it didn't seem to serve much of a purpose in driving the plot line. That being said, it wasn't an overbearing and annoying love triangle like those we can sometimes encounter in YA literature. It was definitely a love triangle that I could handle, and I liked all of the characters involved, but I didn't really see the point of having it in the story. I have seen a lot of people talking about the ending of this book and how it was a major disappointment for them. I can totally understand where they are coming from, because as the story ended, I found myself thinking, "That can't be it! I need more! What happens now????" But upon a bit of reflection, I am ok with the ending of the book. Yes, I would love some more answers, but I won't deduct stars from my rating for the ending. However, if a sequel is ever released, I will be snatching it up because I really want to see what happens to all of the characters. Right now it appears that Beyond the Red is a standalone, but I would definitely pick up a sequel if Ava Jae ever decides to write one. All in all, I really enjoyed Beyond the Red a lot more than I thought I would. I wasn't sure what I was getting into with an alien book, but it destroyed any preconceived notions I had and really impressed me. I would absolutely read another book set in this world or following the same characters after the events at the end of the Beyond the Red.
