"A great recommendation for readers looking for adventure, romance, and historical trivia." -- "School Library Journal"""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"show more
