Ruby Red (Ruby Red Trilogy #1)
Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!
Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history
Alright synopsis first: Gwen is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in London (the book was written in German originally so I'm not sure why that setting was chosen). Normal enough, but she comes from a family who can time-travel. Thankfully the gene bypassed her and was given to...more
Gwyneth is a member of the family of time-travelers. Every other generation or so her family produces a girl who starts uncontrollably t...more
Okay! So it's the 27th now, and I'm ready to write my review. The first thing that should be apparent is that I loved this book. I gave it 5/5 stars, and it kept me up into the ridiculous hours of the night on both of the days that I read it. I recommend it to all!
Now, let's break it up.
Firstly, plot. One of the main reasons I loved this book was because it was constantly exciting. The plot kept up at a grea...more
When I found out about this book I knew I had to buy it. Simply because the cover is so very pretty! Plus, it is written by Kerstin Gier. You can't go wrong with that.
To be honest, I expected some kind of vampire novel regarding the cover. I am kinda glad that I was wrong. Although I wasn't very convinced that I would like the time travel part. But Kerstin Gier proved me wrong. The time travel is kinda logical, exciting and mysterious. Gwen is a very nice heroine and Gideon is...more
It s funny, it s making your angry, it making you puzzling.
The lovestory (all of them) are clean and making your heartbeat going faster within 2 phrases.
A lot of you guys were complaining about how childish Gwen acted sometimes. That she is like a 12 year old instead of 16.
I have an opinion about that. You may not like it and I m sorry if that is so.
Becoz of my work, I see a lot of 16 year old girls and I can remeber when I used to be 16 ;)
I was childish sometimes, a l...more

Ruby Red is quite different than most time traveling books that I have read recently. Gwyneth, our main character, comes from family with a special gene that allows a person to travel. Of course, with great privilege comes great responsibility. A responsibility that Gwyneth just isn't ready to handle, which only adds to her likability. I bonded pretty quickly to Gwyneth. While her prestigio...more

La protagonista non è di quelle che si odiano dopo le prime dieci righe, riesce anche a risultare simpatica nella sua goffaggine e banalità, e la storia è interessante ed abbastanza coinvolgente. Sarà che trovo che le storie con salti nel passato abbiamo, di solito, buone potenzialità ed ho...more
I haven't read a book that's been translated before... that I can think of anyway, but I didn't notice anything in particular that would have made me think that. It was written really well and translated very well! This novel is part of a trilogy and I must...more

I have to say I was a bit disappointed in this book. Again I got lost in the hype around a high rated book and let that con me into purchasing it. Let me start off by saying this is in no way a BAD book. It was beautifully written, had somewhat relatable characters and the leading lady Gwyneth wasn't a complete idiot like most young women written in these books. But there was just something about the plot that was a bit slow and boring to me.
The characters spent a lot of time talking about "some...more

Por fin, en mi larga lista de lecturas pendientes y/o deseadísimas le ha tocado el turno a Rubí. Había leído y oído todo tipo de críticas buenísimas y tras terminarlo puedo decir que me uno al club de fans incondicionales de la novela y del estilo de la autora.
La historia comienza poco a poco, sin prisa pero sin pausa. La primera mitad me resultó bastante introductoria pero no por ello aburrida o sobrante, en absoluto. Kerstin sabe cómo enganchar al lector...more
It's also disappointing that it left off without answering any major questions. I mean, I understand the circumstances of Gwyneth's birth, but there's a lot more I want to know. I can't wait until the next one is released.
I love time travel and I enjoy that it has an explanation to it. I like that they are limited to travelling backwards and also...more
Manchmal ist es ein echtes Kreuz, in einer Familie zu leben, die jede Menge Geheimnisse hat. Der Überzeugung ist zumindest die 16jährige Gwendolyn. Bis sie sich eines Tages aus heiterem Himmel im London um die letzte Jahrhundertwende wiederfindet. Und ihr klar wird, dass ausgerechnet sie das allergrößte Geheimnis ihrer Familie ist. Was ihr dagegen nicht klar ist: Das man sich zwischen den Zeiten möglichst nicht verlieben sollte. Denn das macht die Sache erst recht kompliziert!
Gwen non è una ragazza normale ha un gene portatore. Può viaggiare nel tempo e può parlare con i fantasmi. E solo questo è straordinario. Ma è l'ultima di una serie di 12 viaggiatori nel tempo e il suo sangue servirà per scoprire un terribile segreto.
Se solo questo non vi ha incuriosito metteteci un figo da paura Gedeon che tira di scherma, parla un sacco di lingue e suona il violino. Una migliore...more
