I didn't like this book as much as I liked Ruby Red. I thought the first book was funnier and the characters more likeable. And bu characters, I mean Gideon. I almost hate him in this book. I'll understand him more in the next one, as least I hope. But for now, I don't like him very much.

In the main plot, there haven't been any answers to the questions we were left with, on the contrary there are more questions and mysteries.

I really really hope the third book meets my expectations. ( )

Very well planned and written; a fast-paced and enjoyable read!

As soon as I'd finished it, I went over to my shelf, picked up the third book and started it as quickly as possible! (I mean, who needs lunch anyway?)

I absolutely love Xemerius!! He's hilarious!

I do have a small complaint... Gideon is so annoying! I'd be a lot happier if he had a few flaws, maybe if he didn't supposedly look perfect all the time!!! Quite apart from the fact that being arrogant is not in the least bit attractive! And as for his 'deceleration of love?'? Please! That's not love I think Gwen could do a lot better.

I definitely recommend this trilogy!

This book was pretty great. I can't give it five stars though. I found it a bit more slow moving than Ruby Red. I loathe Gideon, love Xemerius, and want to thump Gwenyth. I hope either Gideon grows up in the third book or Gwenyth gets over him. He's been jerking her around and I dislike it. It feels like the typical love story with time travel whereas before in Ruby Red it was more about the mystery of time travel. ( )
