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.
I continued to enjoy the timeslip adventures of Gwen and Gideon in Sapphire Blue. The romance was very typical of paranormal novels, but things get a little riskier as Gwen isn’t sure who to trust.
Something that may not have bothered me much if I’d had more time and distance between my reading of Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue is that they read like one big novel. They basically happen completely back to back. I felt like the first one wasn’t self-contained. It was like one book got to a point where someone decided “This is too long. Cut it in half and make it two.”
Still. Time travel. Good old-fashioned
see what I did there fun.
