This internationally best-selling series is from Germany and it is no wonder it has been translated for the US, it is fantastic! Taking place in London, both in the present and as far back as the 18th century, the storyline is utterly engrossing. Gwen is a fairly traditional, modern girl that has to suddenly become a chameleon of the past. As stories involving conspiracy and secrets can be, you have to follow the storyline closely and remember who is who, because in a second they might be a deceiver. I loved the inclusion of Xemerius, the gargoyle demon that only Gwen has the ability to see. He added some light-hearted fun to the middle of this trilogy where the story has the ability to lull before the big conclusion. Gier has spun a web with this storyline and I can’t wait to see how the trilogy concludes in Emerald Green. ( )

Started August 03d, 2013 after finishing [b:Rubinrot|6325285|Rubinrot (Edelstein Trilogie, #1)|Kerstin Gier|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1327918185s/6325285.jpg|6510846] the first in the series.
A fast read. Nice Cliffhanger.
Be sure to buy the next (and last) book in the series before finishing this one.
As with the first book, if this was rated like a film it would be for age 6 or at most for 12: lots of more or less unbelievable romance, no sex, a little violence. The underlying theme, though, is well thought out and something to think about. Also in the context very believable.

I enjoyed this but I was not as satisfied as I was with the first book of the trilogy. It seems the author is drawing out the plot. In any case I will make an effort at the third book. ( )
