Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier Book Review

Emerald Green (The Ruby Red Trilogy, #3)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 u
p 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.

This stunning conclusion picks 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.

I read the first two books in this trilogy in two days and fell in love with them. The series has such an amazing premise and I’m wondering why I didn’t pick up this series sooner. I was lucky enough to be able to pick up an ARC of Emerald Green at ALA and read it within the week. It was the perfect conclusion to a great series! 

Emerald Green picks up where the previous two books left off. There was a pretty major event that occurred in the last book, and I was happy to see it resolved fairly quickly. Gwenneth is still such a great main character and so easy to identify with. Gideon was well....Gideon. He’s so sweet, although he definitely can be a bit arrogant. His more unlikable qualities weren’t as present in this book though, which was great. The romance between him and Gwenneth was amazing! I’ve really loved all the romance I’ve been reading lately.

The plot got even more intense and had so many various twists to it. I was constantly surprised by various developments. However, I will say that I thought one of the twists was a bit far fetched and kind of wish it had just never happened. Besides that, the new new developments were all interesting and exciting enough. I also think the ending was perfect for the book, especially since I’m someone who absolutely loves HEA’s.

Emerald Green was a great conclusion to the trilogy and I’d give it 4 out of 5 flowers. I recommend this series to anyone looking for a fun, exciting read :)


  1. Haven't heard of this one but it seems sweet. I actually like a little arrogance in characters, it makes them easier to like and find interesting to read about.

    Lovely review, hun! <33

  2. This series is new to me, love the cover and the fact that you read the books back to back, that is always a good sign!

  3. I never heard about this series before. It sounds great and the cover is to die for! Great review.

  4. This sounds great. I don't know why I haven't read my copies yet. I think it's time I do something about that.

    Glad you loved it!

  5. For some odd reason, I STILL haven't caught up with this series and read the 2nd one. I need to do so pronto because it really is a great series. Yay on twists! Love the review, Montana :)
