“Didn’t I tell you to wait in the coach?” I didn’t react, so Gideon took my arm and pulled me to my feet. His face was completely drained of color. “That was incredibly reckless and … dreadfully dangerous and…” He swallowed hard and stared at me. “And, dammit all, rather brave of you.”
Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Read The Ruby Red/ Rubinrot Trilogy
1 It’s a story about time travelers in London that was originally written in German. (Even though it’s been translated it’s still beautiful)
2 The love interest is a huge idiot who goes through so much character development and its for the better 100% (all the characters do tbh).
3 There’s some hella rad ghosts, ranging from a little boy to the ghost of a gargoyle demon
4 I personally think the books get better and batter it’s not like some book series where the first one is really good but the next two get increasingly bad
5 T I M E T R A V E L
6 Cool mysteries and stuff you can try to figure out. There’s quite a few tbh and they’re are hella rad and interesting.
7 NO LOVE TRIANGLE WITH THE MAIN CHARACTER AND TWO BOYS
8 Witty dialogue I genuinely enjoy all of it’s extremely funny.
9 If I could only have one book series for the rest of my life I’d honestly pick this one because I love every part. There’s some book series I love so much but there are parts I skip every time I reread them because I don’t like them. I love every part of all three books.
10 So in short- Character development, time travel, whole series is already out, no love triangle, super funny ghosts, and just altogether great writing.
The rococo period is wondrous for the ladies, and hell on the time traveling teenage male. By that I mean the frilly cravat and sleeves are really doing Gideon no favors. It makes swashbuckling later look extra lame too. But hi Gwen! You look super cute!
