Review: Sapphire Blue by: Kerstin Gier
Sapphire Blue - Kerstin Gier

*I solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God*


Publishing Information: Henry Holt and Company, LLC, December 2009


Safety Rating: PG (There may have been one or two bad words. Suggested for ages...12+)


    This is the second book in the Ruby Red Trilogy. I love this series! I love the characters and how they interact. I love the time-travel element it all goes together so well!

     So right of the bad I want to say...Ew! Charlotte gets on my last nerve, she is so rude! And can I please have a read life version of Gideon? He is definitely being added to the Book Boyfriend list! I would say this book is just as good as the first book, no better, no worse! Thanks for reading!


Yours Truly, signing off!

Reading progress update: I've read 85%.
Ruby Red (The Ruby Red Trilogy) - Kerstin Gier

I love this so far, but damn do I wish people would start telling Gwyn things.  I get that after the whole Lucy incident they wanna be more careful about who they tell things to and allow in, but Gwyn is quite clearly the Ruby and they need her, plus she was out of the loop on things for so long because her mother faked her birth certificate and she was never considered to have the gene nor trained in case she did.


Also, I really need more info on Saint-Germain.  I understand that he's the bad guy and he (telepathically) choked and threatened Gwyn at their first meeting, but I don't get why.  I also don't get why Gwyn didn't tell Gideon or any of the others about it.  If Lucy ran off with the first Chronograph because Saint-Germain was giving her bad vibes, if Gwyn brought up, "btw, he choked and threatened me," wouldn't they have to start realizing that maybe he isn't the savior they believe him to be?

Ruby Red
Ruby Red (The Ruby Red Trilogy) - Kerstin Gier

Overall I liked this book, which is good because for some reason I decided to already buy the rest of the books when they were discounted sometime earlier.


The book opens with a mysterious pair who have landed in 1912 London. We don't know much about them other than they time traveled from a later date when jogging and Kleenex were normal parts of everyday life. Their words don't make a lot of sense until later in the book, but basically you could figure out that they were stuck there and had stolen some device from other people and had been helped by a woman named Grace.


The book then jumps to contemporary times, I think 2010ish, though it isn't said specifically. Gwyneth is a member of a family who has a time traveling gene. She doesn't know too much about it other than when certain member of her family is between 16 and 17, she will gain the ability to travel in time. Her 16-year-old cousin Charlotte is apparently going to be the next traveler and her family has been almost obsessed with waiting for her ability to manifest. Gwyneth, also 16, finds it all a bit weird and exciting.


Until, she starts getting the headaches which usually portend time travel and is whisked away in time. Unlike Charlotte, Gwyneth has no training and no idea what to expect.


From there she's introduced into a secret society, which was founded by the Count of St. Germain, another time traveler. He figured out what was happening and how to control it, as well as tracking down two family lines, one which passes the gene to male heirs and one to female heirs. Gwyneth is apparently the "Ruby" the last of the 12 time travelers and will have "powers of the raven".


I did figure out the truth of why her birthdate was lied about prior to the reveal in the end and have guessed about a few other storylines, but we'll see if I'm right. I did have some issues with the book but I do think it has at least started off as one of the better paranormal YA series and I look forward to reading the rest.

#BookadayUK - Day 3: These are basically one book...if you want to keep your sanity.
Ruby Red - Kerstin Gier
Sapphire Blue (Ruby Red) by Gier, Kerstin 1st (first) Edition (10/30/2012) -
Emerald Green (Ruby Red Trilogy) by Gier. Kerstin ( 2013 ) Hardcover - Gier. Kerstin

Day 3: Favorite novel in translation.


You can't really chose one of these, as you really can't read these without all three of them sitting beside you...or the cliffhangers might kill you.


While I have some issues with this series, it is quite good and the time travel element of it was very fascinating. A tad predictable at times, but it was like a roller coaster you did not (and could not) git off.


The translation from the original German was superb and I enjoyed not seeing the handiwork of the translator. You knew it was there but the book flowed flawlessly with only the slightest hint that you were not reading it in its original language.

Emerald Green (Ruby Red Trilogy # 3) - Thank goodness it's over...but...
Emerald Green (Precious Stone Trilogy, #3) - Kerstin Gier,Anthea Bell

Well, it’s done. I really didn’t believe we could wrap up this complicated tale in one book. My thoughts on the first two books can be found here and here, but both can be summed up easily: we get nowhere VERY fast. While some answers could be found in the second book, they were few and everything was left for the last book to wrap up.
