Are you in the mood for an awesome time-travel triology that promises to have a Twilight-ish romance flavor to it too? Then you'd better get started with book #1, Ruby Red by Kirstin Gier now. Gwen lives in London with her mother's rather eccentric family. For years all the attention has been focused on her cousin Charlotte who is supposed to be carrying the family time-travel gene and preparing her for life in the past. However, when Gwen turns 16, she is the one who suddenly starts disappearing into the past. This shocking news sends tremors through the whole family, as well as the Guardians, the old, powerful and dangerous secret society that monitors time travelers and seeks to control what they do. Gwen is a convincing modern teen with a great best friend and mom, who seeking to protect her daughter, ends up making matters more difficult for her and others. A handsome, albeit rather conceited, 19-year-old Gideon adds a romantic element as her destined fellow time-traveler. Action, adventure, humor, mystery, and totally believable characters make this novel a real page-turner. First published in Germany, Ruby Red has enjoyed great success throughout Europe.
