Series: Precious Stone Trilogy-2
Publisher: Henry Holt
Summary: 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.And of course there is Gideon, the Diamond. Gwen’s not sure what’s going on, but she’s pretty much destined to find out.
My thoughts: So because it’s the second book am going to be short and only say so key things that I remember when reading. So the second book is pretty much finding out as much as Gwen can without being caught. And drama that lead into the last book.
Something funny is that Gwen gets drunk, and we have a new friend introduced in the beginning of the book. The thing about the friend is he’s a creature that no one else can see and follows Gwen everywhere. Oh spits out water when excited.
Gwen takes to meeting an old family member in the past and getting his help with finding answers.
Gideon has a back and forth hate to make out mood going on. Plus at the end something big happens between Gideon and Gwen. Then Gwen is told something that makes her mistrust Gideon that leads into the next book. (His problem is we don’t who’s side he is actual on).
While Charlotte had gotten over not talking to Gwen to now being her trainer. Which she takes to being a snob once again. She loves to show how much she knows and rub in Gwen’s face.
Charlotte goes a little mad when she is left out of the big secret that Gwen is keeping. So she tries to rat her out as much as possible. And
Gwen knows people who should trust her don’t and so she does things her own way. So with her trusted team she finds out as much as she can even if it’s dangerous if anyone finds out.
And of course we had the quick ending with an interesting epilogue. Now on to the third and final book because how quick these books go I really want to know the end game.
