Emerald Green - Book Review

Emerald Green (Precious Stone #2)
by Kerstin Gier, translated by Anthea Bell

What is it about:
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.

What did I think of it:
This is a great ending to a very enjoyable time travel trilogy.

I must say that Gier did a great job on the time travelling. There was only one incident that made me raise an eyebrow in disbelief, otherwise she managed to draw me into the story and make me believe in all the time travelling. Events from previous books fell into place, and mysteries got solved. I had a great time with discovering what was going on.

There is a bit of romance angsting going on, but once again Xemerius the gargoyle is the comic relief so things don't get too angsty. I also loved how friends and family helped Gwen out when needed. Especially aunt Maddie was great in this book.

The ending was satisfying although a few things were left hanging in my opinion, but not enough to annoy me.

All in all a very entertaining and enjoyable read. I will investigate what other books Gier has written.

Why should you read it:
It's a cool and entertaining YA Time Travel read.
