Gwen has a destiny to fulfill, but no one will tell her what it is.
She’s only recently learned that she is the Ruby, the final member of the time-traveling Circle of Twelve, and since then nothing has been going right. She suspects the founder of the Circle, Count Saint-German, is up to something nefarious, but nobody will believe her. And she’s just learned that her charming time-traveling partner, Gideon, has probably been using her all along.
This stunning conclusion picks up where Sapphire Blue left off, reaching new heights of intrigue and romance as Gwen finally uncovers the secrets of the time-traveling society and learns her fate.
*SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT*
LET ME JUST SAY I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE BECAUSE IT’S PERFECT AND AMAZING AND TERRIFIC AND IT’S JUST GREAT. READ IT. NOW.
Sometimes this whole time traveling thing is really confusing but it’s really interesting. I really love the way it ties up in the end. How Gideon actually hit himself in the head with a flashlight in the past and the scene from Ruby Red where Gwen was hiding in the room when she first went back in time and then the other Gwen made out with Gideon to hide younger Gwen.
I cried at the part where Grace (Gwen’s mom) admitted to not being Gwen’s mom and that Lucy and Paul were actually her parents, I mean that was a big deal.
I think that this book could’be been extended a little longer, the scenes were a little rushed. Like how Gwen died around the middle of the book (which was sort of a false climax or a secondary climax if you will) and the actual climax of the book was at the end when Mr.Whitman was actually Count Saint-Germain in the future, which was surprising to me, I did not expect that! I always expected something evil from Falk alllll this time! He was described very wolf-like and I don’t know why, he seemed so menacing but he really didn’t do much?
I really liked Lesley and Raphael together.
I still really love Gideon, like Gwenyth, there’s nothing that can make me not love him.
Onto Charlotte, I still utterly, completely, infinitely, whole-heatedly despise Charlotte, I don’t have any sympathy towards her, to be honest, I wish she would’ve died in a painfully gruesome way. Maybe If she wasn’t so perfect and mean then I would maybe feel a slight bit sorry for her.
It was such a great trilogy, such a shame that it’s ended so soon!
