Emanuela's carefully planned life is dashed to pieces when her wedding is interrupted by the watercrea, the mystical woman who eventually collects every Occhian citizen for the water their blood can contribute to the drought-plagued city. But rather than go peaceably to her death, Emanuela fights back and flees her home with Alessandro (aka Ale, her best friend and ex-fiancé). They hide in the catacombs, only to find themselves in a city that mirrors their own, but without their catastrophic lack of water. The secrets they learn there ignite Emanuela's relentless determination to win back her city's water at any cost. Fitzgerald populates her story with fierce women who rule cities and seek glory; the protagonists' characterizations are narrow enough, however, that it is difficult to root for the intended heroine or her female counterpart in the mirror city, and the same thing goes for their male sidekicks. There is hope for the future, though, since Fitzgerald hints at a romantic attraction between the women that may help add intrigue to the planned sequel. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
Mara Fitzgerald writes YA fantasy about unlikable female characters who ruin everything. She is a biologist by day and spends entirely too much time looking at insects under a microscope. She was born near Disney World and now lives near Graceland, which is almost as good. Beyond the Ruby Veil is her debut novel.
