Book Review: Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

First in the series was Ruby Red. Sapphire Blue is the second book in this series. All I have is good things to say. I love this series! In addition, I should add that I hate time travel books. I have never been able to get into the whole time travel theme. These books make me doubt my own opinions. This series is excellent, if a little juvenile at times. The main character, Gwen, can be a stereotypical teenage girl in that she stresses over the boys aspect a little much, but even that doesn't detract from the book for me. Excellent second edition. Can't wait for Emerald Green to be released!


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 don't have a book trailer for Sapphire Blue, but here is one for Ruby Red, the first in the series
