Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gems! Gwen’s normal life gets turned upside down when she discovers she has inherited the family gene that allows her to time travel. Her family assumed that her cousin Charlotte had inherited it based on prophesies. Gwen is kept in the dark about the purpose of her time travel and sets out with her friend Lesley to discover what she is really doing and what the secret time travelling society really wants from her. All three of these books are Gems. I enjoyed them immensely and will likely re-read the entire trilogy at some point. They were action packed and filled with adventure, even though sometimes the foreshadowing was too strong for my liking. Most of the book I felt like I knew where it was going and what was going to happen next, so there was an overall lack of surprises for me. These books made me smile, chuckle and say “aww”. Beautifully written & translated, I would have never guessed they weren't originally written in English. Written with a diverse set of characters that are charismatic, endearing, witty, annoying, hilarious. Each characters personality and traits really come to life in these books. Ze eccentric Madame Rossini, the French dressmaker, and her witty quips. Xemerius, the demon ghost gargoyle, he is so freaking adorable.  I would highly recommend this series to all fans of YA books.

Read from the Book

ONE   THE END OF THE SWORD was pointing straight at my heart, and my murderer’s eyes were like black holes threatening to swallow up everything that came too close to them. I knew I couldn’t get away. With difficulty, I stumbled a few steps back. The man followed me. “I will wipe that which is displeasing to God off the face of the earth!” he boomed. “The ground will soak up your blood!” I had at least two smart retorts to these sinister words on the tip of my tongue. (Soak up my blood? Oh, come off it, this is a tiled floor.) But I was in such a panic that I couldn’t get a word out. The man didn’t look as if he’d appreciate my little joke at this moment anyway. In fact, he didn’t look as if he had a sense of humor at all. I took another step back and came up against a wall. The killer laughed out loud. Okay, so maybe he did have a sense of humor, but it wasn’t much like mine. “Die, demon!” he cried, plunging his sword into my breast without any more ado. I woke up, screaming. I was wet with sweat, and my heart hurt as if a blade really had pierced it. What a horrible dream! But was that really surprising? My experiences of yesterday (and the day before) weren’t exactly likely to make me nestle down comfortably in bed and sleep the sleep of the just. Unwanted thoughts were writhing around in my mind like flesh-eating plants gone crazy. Gideon was only pretending , I thought . He doesnR
