Saphirblau Edelstein-Trilogie 2 by Kerstin Gier. Frisch verliebt in die Vergangenheit, das ist vielleicht keine gute Idee. Das zumindest findet Gwendolyn, 16 Jahre alt, frisch gebackene Zeitreisende. Zum Beispiel die Welt zu retten. Oder Menuett tanzen zu lernen.

They are not, by any means, closely related. This is the type of thing normal families wouldn't even realize because you have to go so far back, but these characters do know because their family trees are religiously monitored.
When is the movie adaptation coming out??? But I can't speak german, so I don't understand a thing! Taylah-ann If anyone wants to watch the English subtitled version of the German?

I rarely have this much fun when reading a book but this series brought tears to my eyes several times from laughing too hard.

So, so much potential. Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to it. The plot is still interesting. In fact, its creative and fun and quite enjoyable. But the characters! The characters absolutely ruin this book. Lets take our fearless hero, Gideon, for example.
He's a boy toy with no real purpose but to look prety, be occasionally vexing, and be good at kissing.
He is unlikely in the extreme and every high school girls fantasy. Of course, he is also the most misunderstood character around and really in love with ther heroine. In love. That brings me to my main problem with Gideon His awful, awful declaration of love. It abrupt, random, and dreadful. It sounds like someone on a Jane Austen-high. He's barely known this girl a few days and he's "declaring his love" Its all lust and hormones and emotional hype. Gideon's character is, as I said, a teenage girl's characterization of the perfect guy.
There is nothing wrong with him, his main goal is to protect the girl, oh! There is nothing more to him though! Sure, he plays the violin and piano and hates musicals, but is any of that depth? Its nonsense to make it appear more attractive to our hormonal town crier I mean, our heroine. Gwen, Gwen, Gwen! Oi vey. Her main issue in life is Gideon.
Its almost sickening. Because here is the deal Even though the entire bloody world is counting on her, even though she can travel in time , even though she has a pet gargoyle, her every waking moment is spent in contemplation of Gideon's hair.
Or his clothing. Or how hot he is. Did I mention the paragraphs upon paragraphs about how attractive he looks at random moments? Delete that from the book, and you have an intresting, entertaining story. Its not needed. In fact, it would be so, so much better without it! Because honestly, Gwen has no depth. She's hormonal in the extreme, dumb on top of that, and makes such obvious blunders in judging poor Gideon's character that it really is irritating.
This book is also rather crude. Its crass. Whether its her random and unneeded commentary about The Pill with her Grandfather, or the random and unneede groping in the eighteenth century, or the reference to kissing and sex on every page Yet it is all somehow "love. Like, where the heck did Lesley and Gwen find those numbers? Yes, I know, in the library, but when were they looking? Just a randomly added details.
And sentences like "I'll get to that in a moment" when explaining why the gargoyle wasn't there Or Gideon's younger brother conveniently liking Lesley and knowing where the numbers came from? I'm looking forward to the next book being translated, and I will read it. I enjoyed a lot of Sapphire Blue Unfortunately, I was also frustrated by it.
They were all so suspicious here. Gideon put a hand on my waist and propelled me forward. Marley say good night, and then the door latched behind us. We walked along side by side in silence. A whole series of electronic beeps could be heard.
