She’s only recently learned that she is the Ruby, the final member of the time-traveling Circle of Twelve, and since then nothing has been going right. She suspects the founder of the Circle, Count Saint-German, is up to something nefarious, but nobody will believe her. And she’s just learned that her charming time-traveling partner, Gideon, has probably been using her all along.
This stunning conclusion picks up where Sapphire Blue left off, reaching new heights of intrigue and romance as Gwen finally uncovers the secrets of the time-traveling society and learns her fate.
This beginning of the novel was rather slow and boring and I didn’t enjoy the parts concerning her ghosts thats she could see. I thought that the plot was exceptional there were twists and turns and I never expected or saw coming although the writing of the novel was not all that good. I think it took a lot away from the overall scheme of the novel and ruined some of the plot line. As I think back on the novel there were many ways in which the novel could have been improved. I thought that Gwen was a rather week character of whom i did not admire in the slightest although Charlotte I thought was greatly misunderstood by the people around her. The charter development for all the characters was very well done and I enjoyed how the past, futur and present were all incorporated in the novel. Overall the novel was quite good and I would recommend it for reading on a rainy day.
