Product description

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. "Sapphire Blue "is the second book in the Ruby Red Trilogy from Kerstin Gier.

Review quote

Praise for "Ruby Red" "Gier succeeds on her own terms, keeping the reader moving along, forward and backward in time, and ending with a revelation and a cliffhanger. Both will leave readers anticipating the publication of the next installment, 'Sapphire Blue.'" --"The New York Times Book Review" "Humorous, romantic and suspenseful, the plot is fast-paced and impossible to put down. . . . The final romantic cliffhanger will leave you thirsty for the next book in this 'jewel' of a series." --"Justine "magazine * "What makes this such a standout is the intriguingly drawn cast, stars and supporting players both, beginning with Gwen, whose key feature is her utter normality. Adventure, humor, and mystery all have satisfying roles here." --"Booklist", starred review "Gier's characters and plotting are first-rate, creating an adventure that should leave readers eager for the rest of the trilogy." --"Publishers Weekly" "Riveting." --"Kirkus Reviews" "The characters in Kerstin Gier's stellar story come fully to life, and veteran translator Anthea Bell (who translated Cornelia Funke's Inkheart books) preserves the book's abundant humor. . . . There's something here for everyone." --"Shelf Awareness""SOSOSOSOSOSO amazing. So. Amazing. Really. Unfortunately, the sequel doesn't come out in English until 2012. *sigh* But seriously. This is THE best book I have read in a VERY long time. You should definitely read it." --J'adore Dessiner Blog"I giggled, I sat on the edge of my seat, and I enjoyed every second of it. I will be waiting very anxiously to devour "Sapphire Blue" when it is released." --Pure Imagination Blog"I'm ready to read the next two NOW!" --YA Lit Ramblings Blog
