I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! OMG!! I was surprised to be surprised when I found out I was right. I predicted back after reading Ruby Red that Mr. Whitman is Count Saint-Germain! I got so excited when I read about that part! I felt so proud of myself. Is that sad or is that awesome!!? Just as the first two, I loved this one. I smiled so much. I loved that all the pieces finally fit together. I especially loved reading about that scene where Gwen sees herself and kisses Gideon to distract him. I’ve been waiting for that since I read about it in the first book. I loved that part! Oh, and I love it when Gideon goes to see Gwen and Charlotte thinks it’s Gordon who came to see her. Ha! I think Charlotte and her mother are the most annoying characters I have ever read about. I also like knowing how that note to Lucas came about. I loved every time they he and Gwen spent together. I loved this book. And the key! I knew that key was meant for something since the beginning! I just did not know it was for that chest. But I always suspected it would be useful in the future… uh, present. I don’t know, but you get it, right? I did not think Gwen would find out about her parents the way she did. I feel like that should have been predictable but I did not see it at all. But I loved Lucy and Paul from the moment I started reading Ruby Red! By the way, Gwen. I have been saying that her name is Gwyneth but I think I like Gwendolyn better. It’s much more fun to say and I wish the translator didn’t change it. The whole immortality thing and the philosopher’s stone. I read philosopher’s stone and I automatically think of Harry Potter. I knew the Count wanted to be immortal. That part didn’t surprise me one bit. But what was in the chronograph did surprise me a bit. I thought there would be more to it. And Gideon turning immortal! I did not expect that. I thought it would be one of those stories where Gwen will kill herself once Gideon’s time comes. I even believed his fake death for a second there. Gwen’s reaction was believable. In my head, the way I read it, it was. Nevertheless, I was very much happy with their whole plan. I loved the end, thought I think I would’ve loved it even more if it had ended with just Gwen and Gideon. But I loved it. I really think there could be more to this series especially because the Count is still alive. I just love this series so much. It’s so much fun and I’ll be sure to reread it one day whenever I need a mood lifter and need something to make me smile or simply just because I miss this adventure, which I am sure I will.

yalitmeme: [01/10] romantic relationships: lucy montrose x paul de villiers
“You want to marry me? On board the Titanic? Are you out of your mind?”
“It would be so romantic.”
“Except the bit with the iceberg.” She laid her head on his chest and buried her face in his jacket. “I love you so much,” she murmured.
“Will you be my wife?”
“Yes,” she said, her face still buried against his chest. “But only if we leave the ship in Queenstown, Ireland, at the latest.”
“Ready for the next adventure, Princess?”
“Ready when you are.“
