What is the secret of the chronometer that the Guardians are so determined to protect? Who is the Count? Can Gwyneth ever trust Gideon? Who can she trust? This is a fantastic tale of time travel and intrigue. The characters are unforgettable. Thankfully Gwen has a best friend who is just awesome. The costumes on the cover are just that, costumes, needed for them to travel inconspicuously in different time periods. As is common for time-travel books, you need to suspend your knowledge of tense and causality or your brain will melt trying to get it straight. Translated from German and set in London with references to places like Harrods. Couldn’t put these down, I had to know what was going to happen next.
