This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
I had issues with the first book, but since the plot was interesting I could look past it, but this time around, I can’t.
The plot is still interesting; don’t get me wrong, it’s creative, fun and enjoyable. However, what ruins it for me is the characters. They ruin this book! I’m not sure whether Gideon or Gwen is the worst. I’m not sure if Gideon is serious and if so, when he is. He confuse me so much with his twisted personality and he is the reason why Gwen, in my opinion, is fucked up, pardon my language. Her main issue in this book is Gideon and her childish tendencies. The amount of times she thinks about Gideon and how he looks is sickening. She got so much stuff going on around her, but all her time is spend, wondering if Gideon feels the same, he may or may not, I guess we’ll know in the last book? Perhaps. I really wish the author didn’t make romance such a big part of the book, because honest to God, the idea is amazing and once the book stirs around the subject, it’s interesting. There’s a reason why I, despite my detest of Gideon and Gwen’s toxic relationship, have continued with the books and will read the last one.
I got a feeling that Gwendolyn will reconsider her feelings for Gideon and maybe – wishful thinking – we will actually end up with an amazing ending.
I had a big issue with the language is the first book, but that has improved in this one!
I am in love with these covers. They are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
