So I finally finished my first book of the year. In all honesty, I’m disappointed in myself that it took this long for me to complete my first book this year.
By Kerstin Gier
I fell absolutely in love with Ruby Red that I just had to get the rest of the series. Sapphire Blue is the book that I just recently finished and I felt was filled with information and mostly made to fill in the blanks. Even with it being that, I still loved it.
I AM A SUCKER FOR LOVE STORIES!!!
Gwen, is just like the typical teenage girl until her life is magically turned upside down after a secret her mother kept from her and the entire family is revealed. She is an extraordinary girl who can talk to ghosts and demons, oh and can also travel back in time, with her companion Gideon all due to a magical aspect of her DNA, which makes her the Ruby.
Gwen’s cousin Charlotte was suppose to be the one who inherited the gift of time travel, and once it is discovered that she wasn’t the special one she became Gwen’s enemy, like most jealous cousins often become. (Or at least from what I’ve experienced)
Charlotte acts like they stereotypical teenage girl that acts as if the world revolves around her. I wouldn’t doubt it if she turns out to be one of the persons to turn on Gwen.
Gideon, at first acts like a charming older man, who knows that he can get all the woman to swoon over him. There are some parts where I, (yes I admit it) find myself believing I’m a teenage girl again falling for his stupid, extraordinary charm. (drools a little)
There is an entire head quarters built on a mission that was formed by a dangerous and evil Count (who’s intentions I’m not yet sure of)
Gideon and Gwen’s mission is to collect all the blood from her past relative who also carry the time travel gene and read it into the machine that helps them travel to specific dates. It is believed by the ‘Evil’ Count that when everyone’s’ blood has been read the cure for all diseases would be functional. (but I don’t believe he’s all for saving the sick)
The first machine was stolen by their Aunt and Uncle, and threw the entire mission off track and that is where Gideon and Gwen are used as their little toys in this mission. But ever since it was discovered that Gwen has the time travel gene and not Charlotte, everyone acts as if it is Gwen’s fault she is uneducated and ill-prepared for her journeys.
Gwen doesn’t understand why everyone treats her as if she is the enemy for the actions that her mom had done in the past. (her mom helped her Aunt and Gideon’s uncle escape with the first machine) and then her mother lied about the date from which Gwen was born on.
As the story grows on, Gideon and Gwen find a spark. Even though they are polar opposite they have found each other in this mess, which soon gets messier. I cannot wait.
Hope you all enjoyed reading my blog!!
