Precious Stone Trilogy

 

 

Ruby Red is the first book in the Precious Stone Trilogy (or Ruby Red trilogy). It is the story of young Gwedolyn Sheppard who has inherited the time travelling gene in her family. Throughout the book, we see her journey into this new world of mystery, in which she does not only love and herself, but also her family. The whole book is written from her perspective, and her narration of the events is truly amazing. She is witty and funny and all of that shows in her narration of the events.  The whole plot is also very interesting and the book is quite well written. At the same time, I must admit that at times I find it a bit simplistic, and some of the major plot twists that were supposed to come out in the end, I had predicted from the first chapter. Still, I very much so enjoyed reading this series and proof of that is that I read all 3 books in less that 2 days. Therefore, if you want something quick and easy to read I definitely recommend this trilogy.

Sapphire Blue is the second installment of the Precious Stone Trilogy and it was a really good addition to the series. All of the characters develop in this book so well. Although, I must admit, if Gideon was a little bit less immature I would not mind it at all. The episodes of time travelling in this book are plenty, and through these episodes we manage to understand a lot about this secret society and this hidden word. Generally, it was a really quick and easy read!

A great finale to this trilogy. Honestly, it was a very fulfilling finale to the book series… apart from the final chapter that is. If I am honest I really did not like the final chapter. I would have preferred it, if it did not exist… but then again I’ve been wishing something similar for the Harry Potter series. Anyway, in this book everything clicks together, everything concerning the Count of St. Germain, Gwendolyn and Gideon, time travel, the order… everything. If you ask me, this is what made the book great, the fact that in the end all questions were answered!

 

Generally, I think this was a great trilogy. It was a lot of fun to read and it was also very mysterious and adventurous… a great easy read!
