Gwen has a destiny to fulfill, but no one will tell her what it is.     She’s only recently learned that she is the Ruby, the final member of the time-traveling Circle of Twelve, and since then nothing has been going right. She suspects the founder of the Circle, Count Saint-German, is up to something nefarious, but nobody will believe her. And she’s just learned that her charming time-traveling partner, Gideon, has probably been using her all along.

Emerald Green is the stunning conclusion to Kerstin Gier's Ruby Red Trilogy, picking up where Sapphire Blue left off, reaching new heights of intrigue and romance as Gwen finally uncovers the secrets of the time-traveling society and learns her fate.

My Thoughts:

I really, really enjoy these books yet I always put off reading them. I don’t know what my problem is!! Thankfully, in November I decided that I had too many unfinished series languishing on my TBR pile. I decided to finish at least on series a month (More on this in January! It’s going to be a feature on my blog.) I knew I wanted to start with Emerald Green. I’m sure glad I did! What a great end to this series.

I’m avoiding spoilers for Emerald Green but there may be spoilers for Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue.

Okay, as I said in my reviews for the previous books, I love, love. love the humor! Gwen is such a fun characters. I love how, even with everything that has been thrown at her, she keeps her spirits up. She’s just so plucky!!

This is the third and final book in a trilogy. This means that everything the author has been working toward is coming to a head. Gier does an excellent job of tying up the loose ends while still giving the book it’s own story. I especially loved seeing all the “smaller” parts of the story come together. I was really impressed!

This is a series I highly suggest you read. It’s got so many fun things (Time travel! Secret societies! Ghosts! Humor! Romance!) that work together to create a great story.

    I’m so glad you loved this book as much as I did! This series is one of by absolute favorites, and I love my namesake’s character! I found Emerald Green to be my favorite in the series, since as you said, it wraps up so well, but introduces new and surprising twists as well. Fantastic review! Thanks for sharing! ~Gwen
