Emerald Green


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 that the founder of the Circle, Count Saint-Germain, is up to something nefarious, but nobody believes her. And she's just learned that her charming time-traveling partner, Gideon, has probably been using her all along.

Will Gwen finally uncover the secrets of the Circle and learn her own fate? - Excerpt from book.

Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier is the final book in the trilogy. I had my reservations when it comes to reading this last book as I didn't want the story to end and also I was afraid that certain incidents will not be explained. If those butterfly effects does not take place then the whole story is flawed. But fortunately for me, those butterfly effects occurred in the book and I really loved it. While reading this book, all I wanted is for everything to connect and when it did it was fantastic. The plot was just so so good, I couldn't put down the book even when my eyes were tired. The timeline of things happening are just perfect to me.

The introduction of another character into the story even though he plays a small part was essential, it made things more fun for sure. The characters that are crucial to the story did grow a bit and other side characters were just as good.  The romance element in the book wasn't the main highlight as it was just okay.  I think it was only important as a motivation for the characters in the book. The actions and reactions of the characters were really spot on too. At one point, I was quite annoyed with one of the side characters that if I knew her in real life, I would have slapped her. This just shows how good the author can write and make life into the characters.

Ultimately, I truly enjoyed the mystery in the book and how it slowly unfolds. I loved every moment in the book and just wished it was longer. Reading it fast because I was excited but slowing down sometimes as I was reluctant for it to end. I like that the author did not make things too complicated as it would be hard to cover up all the effects of the characters' action in time traveling.  The whole story captured my heart and this series has won a place in my favourite series.

I would definitely read more books by this author though it will take some time because her books are written in German. I think I must give credit to the translator because she did a good job as the sentence and grammar did not seem off. I highly recommend the book to people who love time traveling subjects, little bit of romance, some comedy, fantasy and lastly London in the olden days. I'm so satisfied with the book, I would definitely read it again in the near future. 


  1. I so didn't see the twist coming. Great conclusion to a great series, I'm very happy that I decided to check it out.
