Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

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 Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

An overview of the Novel: Gwen is left heartbroken when she finds out that Gideon was only pretending to love her. She is furious and doesn't know who to trust. She fears that the Circle is keeping secrets from her and is desperately trying to figure out her own destiny and the truth. But in a world where the truth isn't exactly viewed in a favorable light, she's not sure what the truth really is.

Gwen is hiding so many secrets from the Circle and when they start watching her closer and closer, she's afraid that everything might just end up in one big disaster. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  Finally I got to read this one. I read the first two in the series before I went to Italy and had to wait so long to get to this one. Finally!

I adored this series so much. I'm so sad to see it finish. This book was epic and so cute. I just love Gwen so much. She has to be one of my favorite characters of all time. 

I loved watching her and Gideon try to tackle this world of mystery and intrigue. I seriously loved it. 

Geir's writing is just incredible. I said throughout the whole series that this was one series that I couldn't quite figure out how it was going to end. The ending was perfect and left me more than satisfied. I was just sad because I wanted to know more about Gwen and Gideon and all of the characters really.

This series is easily one of the best in the paranormal world. If you haven't read them, then get on them. 

So why 4 stars? While I loved this one, it was probably my least favorite in the series. I just wanted more at the ending, but then again the ending was perfect in its own way. I'm just sad it's ended. 

Can I read the series out of order? Not recommended. 

Warnings/Side-notes: None, this series is acceptable for readers of all ages. 

The Wrap-up: An amazing fantasy series that readers all of ages will adore. So glad that I finally got to finish this series and can't wait to see what Geir comes up with next.

  1. I agree that it wasn't as good as the best two, although I loved it as well. Can't wait to read her next book that is coming out next year.

    1. Thanks for commenting. And yes, I'm also super excited for her next book.
