This is the cover for Sapphire Blue, the sequel to Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. I loved Ruby Red. It was an interesting and fresh plot that ran very fluidly. The characters were all different and interesting. The only fault with this book for me was it finished too soon. It was very open-ended.
The Edelstein Trilogy are originally written in German and the English translation of Sapphire Blue will be around the 30th October 2012. Far away, I know.
"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."
The Sapphire Blue cover is quite lovely but I was hoping the cover would be similar to Ruby Red, which is such a beautiful cover.
Have you read Ruby Red? What do you think of the Sapphire Blue cover?
