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.

Oh my gosh, do I really have to wait for OCTOBER for this book to be translated into English???? AHHH! I'm so excited. And I suppose by October I'll be stuck back in dinky Dayton so I'll have to wait even longer to get my hands on a copy.
Maybe I should just re-read Ruby Red...

So much potential. So, so much potential. Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to it.
The plot is still interesting. In fact, its creative and fun and quite enjoyable.
But the characters!

It’s hard to believe the number of bloggers and readers out there that haven’t heard about this wonderful young adult series. Ruby Red, the first book, brought to us an adventure that included time-traveling, secrets, carriages, evil barons, and a little bit of romance. Sapphire Blue continues on from there with double the trouble, triple the action, and quadruple the romance! The characters were once again, very engaging, and I had no problem with getting hooked into the story. Time-travel book ...more

I didn't really like this, it irritated the hell out of me. The heroine, Gwen, could have been a decent character had it not been for the ghastly romance and the vile love interest (the douche dick Gideon). Every time Gwen was near Gideon or thought about him (which was most of the time), I lost respect for her. She was weak, pathetic and desperate. He treated her like utter shit and the dumb bitch let him, she would be mad and upset when he acted like bastard but as soon as she saw him

I like this series, I do. WIth a few complaints. My biggest complaint is that it is a series, instead of a single book. Not much happened it the first and frankly not a whole lot happens in the second. I got SO (in all caps!) tired of no one telling Gwen anything. Eventually some things are revealed. Ish. But you shouldn't have to read 2 books in the series to start getting answers.

Yes, I'll read the next. As long as my complaints are duly noted.
WOW!!! :O *forever crying* This book was just as great as the first one!!! I loved it. I laughed. I cried. Loved it. I'm so obsessed with this series!! Few spoilers ahead:

I loved the soiree and the singing? i laughed so hard in this scene!! Gwen drunk?? So funny!!! Gideon? Still in love with him..but he really pissed me off!! At the end though..well he does love her. right? he loves her. right?? right?? *crying again* I just can't with all the feels!!! My poor sweet Gwen is so miserable and hur
4 solid stars!
This one was a little longer than Ruby Red but I read it much much faster. This makes me wonder how long it will take me to read Emerald Green <33
Love this series so much so far though.

Es que cada vez me gusta más esta trilogía.

En Saphirblau,la segunda parte de la trilogía Rubí,nos encontramos con una historia que comienza siendo algo predecible y pasa a ser absolutamente entretenida. A pesar de que sigo insistiendo que creo saber varias cosas que todavía no se revelaron se que no puedo juzgar al libro de predecible si todavía no se si en cierta forma, esto es así. Por esto mismo me centro en la historia de esta entrega y empiezo a reseñarla.

La historia es mucho más entreteni

Really enjoyed the book but, I have so many questions! Just posted my full book discussion: ! So excited for book 3!
Nádherné. Jednoduše nádherné. Bude mi trvat opravdu hodně dlouho zbavit se toho připitomělého úsměvu, který mám od první stránky... :D
Ještě před týdnem by vám šestnáctiletá Gwendolyn řekla, že je jí život relativně normální. Sice se její sestřenice učila všechno možné, aby mohla cestovat časem a pouze čekala, až se u ní konečně projeví časocestovací gen, její tetička s babičkou a vlastně velká část rodiny je mírně šílená a každý má nějaké to tajemství, ale pro Gwendolyn v

This was really fun. I thought it was very entertaining and fun. I could do without Gideon giving me whiplash though, but it's okay. I still love him

Despite not being able to put this book down, I still have to give it only 4 stars. I still have so many questions about all of the mysteries that they seem to keep adding onto but giving essentially zero information about. I truly hope the third and final installment answers all questions and I can give it a solid 5 star rating. Otherwise I still recommend these books, because they are interesting and the characters all very likable. I've enjoyed it overall so far.

There are authors in this world who spoil readers. It’s true. You read a book and think there is no way this author can pull off another flawless novel and yet somehow they do it. Kerstin Gier is proving to be one of those authors.

Ciddi bir aksiyon eksikliği olduğu gerçeği inkar edilemez ama ben karakterleri ve yazarın mizahını çok seviyorum*-*
I give this one also a 4.5/5

Really enjoyed the second book in this trilogy :)

I especially love the addition of a pretty funny character was added in this book! I also found this book had quite a few funny moments that definitely made me laugh.

I do wish that they would resolve at least some issues in these books, so far its felt like the first two book we get bits and pieces of information but up to this moment there hasn't been too many revelations on whats going on. Which in a way has pushed me
A je to! :)
I know this should be a 4 star, judging by the storyline, world building and character development. But I just really love the idea of time-travel so much that I'm going to give this a 5 star. I'm really fascinated by the world in this book. It's not too complex or too graphic, it's actually simple. There's a family of time travelers and every generation, they get a time traveler in the family. The time travelers use a chronograph to control the instances they travel to a different time. It is s ...more
GR doesn't give me the option to review the English language version specifically, but in case it matters, I read this in English, which is my first language.

But when it comes to reviewing it, I don't have all that much to say about Sapphire Blue. If you read my review of book 1, Ruby Red, you'll see that I thought it was a set up for a potentially interesting series, despite being totally unsatisfying on its own. I don't think Sapphire Blue does enough to move the trilogy along.

Performing some

La saga El amor más allá del tiempo me robó el corazón ya con la primera novela, Rubí (podéis leer mi reseña aquí), pero esta segunda entrega me ha gustado aún más que la primera, si eso es posible. Desde luego, se ha convertido en una de mis sagas favoritas y estoy deseando que salga Esmeralda para leer la conclusión de esta gran historia.

Zafiro comienza inmediatamente en donde se quedó Rubí, ¡vamos que empieza fuerte porque el final fue alucinante! Y los

I can't even explain how much of a disappointment this story turned out to be. I was expecting it to be more of an intricate and overall serious plot than it actually was. You can see here that I actually really loved the first book, as I saw incredible potential for an awesome development of the story - the world building was quite sound and the characters were very interesting. Meaning, it could have been awesome. But

Allah rızası için biri üzerime son kitap olan Zümrüt Yeşil'i atsın. Ya ! Of ! Belirsizlikler içerisindeyim. Kafamda deli sorular. Bazı konular hakkında -Paul ve Lucy'nin neden Gwen ile bu kadar ilgilendiği gibi- az çok tahminim var. Ama bazı şeylerde çok havada kaldı. İkinci kitabı okudum ama hala birşey ortaya çıkmadı yani.
İlk bölüm ve son bölümün Lucy ve Paul tarafından yazılması güzeldi.
4 verecektim aslında ama ilk kitaptan bir tık daha iyi gibi geldi bana. Tasarım falan yine muhteşem zat
I wish I had enjoyed Sapphire Blue as much as I had with it's predecessor. There is a lot of unanswered questions in Ruby Red which I felt could give a lot of potential to this book.

I love how Sapphire Blue does not take things too seriously. Much of Gideon and Gwyneth's timetravel adventures were remarkably comedic. My favorite scene is when they travel back in time to attend a soiree. Gwyneth gets drunk on punch, despite Gideon's weak protesting, she gets asked to sing and she entertains them
Audrey Webster
That was a mean cliff hanger.

I think I liked this one better than Ruby Red because of several reasons. One, now that we've gotten to know the world better there is more room for story and plot development and more places to throw in twists and turns. Two, Gideon and Gwen's relationship is at the moment of tension where they really don't know where to go from there but they both know how they feel. Three, we learn more about Lucy and Paul, but STILL DONT KNOW WHY THEY DID WHAT THEY DID. However,

Recensione sul mio blog: Creature di Carta

Per questo secondo volume della trilogia non c'è molto da dire: le mie aspettative non sono state deluse. La Gier continua a raccontare le avventure di Gwendolyn in maniera allegra e spensierata, con il suo immancabile sarcasmo. Dopo il finale apertissimo del primo volume, Gwendolyn si ritrova ad affrontare uno scorbutico maestro, Mr. Giordano, che ha il compito di insegnarle usi e costumi del passato. C'è stata anche una piacevole introdu
For a second book in a trilogy, this sequel rather disappointed me. I've always had high expectations with second books because that's usually the time when there'll be more action, more revelations, more plot. This sequel, however, appeared lacking in those aspects. It just felt like a lengthy continuation of the first book with more unanswered questions. Not so much to be excited about, really.

This sequel focused more on the blooming Gwyneth-Gideon romance than the actual time travel thing. It
Ruby Red was okay, but Saphire Blue was just meh. My main problems with this book were
- The waste of potential and pages. I didn't enjoy the Gwen/Gideon-story at all, I thought it was cheesy and ridiculous, especially if you keep in mind that the whole story takes places over the course of about a week, which makes the Instalove even more facepalm-worthy. I would have loved to read more about the concept of time travelling and Gwen experiencing different time periods to a fuller extent.

My thoughts

So far I'm loving this series, I thought the book was even better than the first since things are finally taking off. One thing that really bothered me was that the time span of the books are so short? I mean 2 books that describe events that happen within a month? Ish. Plus the fact that the author is dragging on the "secret" of the circle closing is really annoying. So far we haven't progressed plot wise (my opinion). Nonetheless I really enjoyed the tension between Gide

I've had this book sitting in my TBR pile for a while. I had pre-ordered immediately after finishing Ruby Red because I simply could not wait to see what happened next. Then, the book came in and I just never got to it. I finally picked Sapphire Blue up one evening this week because I wanted to read something "easy" for a few minutes before going to bed. Four hours later, I was putting the book down after reading the entire thing. Yeah, it happens.

This book picks up directly after Ruby Red and
This is the second book in the Edelstein Trilogy by Gier. The third book is scheduled for a 2013 release. I got a copy of this book to review through the Amazon Vine program. It was a wonderful read; Gwen learns more about her time traveling gene and we get to learn more about the Guardians as a whole.

Gwen is trying to figure out all this time-traveling stuff and unravel some of the secrets behind the Circle of Twelve. Her partner in time-travel is the very hot and cold Gideon. Will Gwen be able

“-¿Hay algo que no sepas hacer?
-¡No! Puedes tomarme tranquilamente por un Dios.”
“—Deberíamos recoger nuestras cosas —dijo Gideon♥♥♥ finalmente—. Y deberías hacer algo urgente con tus cabellos; parece como si algún idiota se hubiera puesto a revolver en ellos con las dos manos y luego te hubiera tirado sobre un sofá… Sea quien sea el que nos espere sabrá que dos y dos son cuatro… Oh, por Dios, no me mires así.
—Como si ya no pudieras moverte.
—Es que no puedo —dije (Gwen) en serio—. Soy un pudin. Me has transformado en un pudin.....(Zafiro)”
