Gwen’s life has been a rollercoaster since she discovered she was the Ruby, the final member of the secret time-traveling Circle of Twelve. In between searching through history for the other time-travelers and asking for a bit of their blood (gross!), she’s been trying to figure out what all the mysteries and prophecies surrounding the Circle really mean.
At least Gwen has plenty of help. Her best friend Lesley follows every lead diligently on the Internet. James the ghost teaches Gwen how to fit in at an eighteenth century party. And Xemerius, the gargoyle demon who has been following Gwen since he caught her kissing Gideon in a church, offers advice on everything. Oh, yes. And of course there is Gideon, the Diamond. One minute he’s very warm indeed; the next he’s freezing cold. Gwen’s not sure what’s going on there, but she’s pretty much destined to find out.
I hate all these crazy verbs, using a subjunctive to get what's happened in the future and the past mixed up
- Xemerius -
I fall in love with this series! I'm totally addicted! I can say it's as addictive as breads for me, I can eat them and forget the other foods existance.
The story is fast paced and super fun like the prequel. This book gives us more unrevealed mysteries like we don't have enough already from Ruby Red (۳˚Д˚)۳ The time travels are splendid as usual! It was a little bit confused because they traveled back and forth, define another and another mysteries, but still it's mesmerizing ♥
I still like the romance here. I love that Gwen and Gideon have uncertain and awkward relationship. I love it when they are mad and missunderstood at each other haha, it's funny and punchable. That makes their relationship is like roller coaster lol. Gideon is so confusing (۳˚Д˚)۳
Gwen still has hilarious POV! I also like she tried to find out the mysteries among her with her own way. Seriously, those old men on Lodge told her to do this and that and didn't tell her about whatever their aim is. Gwen will find out with her friends and family's helps.
Hey, boring people on Lodge, you have secrets? We have too! #TeamGwen
There are some new characters like Xemerius (the gargoyle) and Raphael (Gideon's brother).
My favorite is Xemerius! He is so hilarious and helpful and funny and cute! OMG I WANT TO HAVE MY OWN XEMERIUS ♥
Also Lesley still has my heart, she is genuinely adorable best friend. She still has her brilliant ideas!
Have you seen the one who will be Raphael?
He is Lion Wasczyk.
