The Gift of Charms by Julia Suzuki

"This epic novel, first in this fantasy series, transports the reader to the magical Land of Dragor, where seven dragon clans live hidden from man having beaten off the evil dragsaur beasts.  Their great wars with the humans are over and the dragons live peacefully among the smoking mud pools and around The Fire Which Must Never Go Out. But the terrible years when they were enslaved by humans have left a lasting scar, and they are told they can never soar above the mountains and leave their safe haven to explore the outside world.  There is unease in the air of their mist-filled valley, and the coming of a strange egg heralds a new era.

Killing Moroi is her specialty and she is freaking good at it. In addition, she is one of the sassiest and wittiest cha

But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust". Even though I am going to do a review of the trilogy I will talk about each book separately. First, we have Ruby Red. It is the 1 st book of this trilogy and for me the best of the three. Is all about the world setting, the explanation of how time-traveling works (in general)
