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 who has been following Gwen since he caught her kissing Gideon in a church, offers advice on everything. Oh, yes. And of course there is Gideon, the Diamond. One minute he’s very warm indeed; the next he’s freezing cold. Gwen’s not sure what’s going on there, but she’s pretty much destined to find out.
For the past two weeks, I have been reading Sapphire Blue. I got up to reading around the first 150 pages, but the words didn't really click well and I wasn't taking in the content how I usually took in info with good books. I immediately knew this was going to be a DNF, and I couldn't get past by reading a few pages at a time so I really couldn't see the point in reading any further. The book in my opinion hasn't been translated well, and so even through the unique language, I couldn't help feel that it was narrated from a small child, though Gwyneth was 17. It seemed light, silly and lacked substance.
So here's a DNF for you guys. That is all, keeping it short and sweet again. Hopefully I can try reading this later this year to see if I enjoy it.
