Gwen & Kate's Library

Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.

Gwen’s Worship of Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier

For lovers of this series, rest assured, all the mysteries wrap up in an amazing, even more surprising fashion than could have ever been expected in a delicious 451 pages! This book is by far my favorite in the series, although that is a difficult choice to make, because the trilogy could have been one extremely long book.

Series: The Precious Stone (or Ruby Red) Trilogy, Book 3

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Humor, Mystery

Rating: 5+

Description:

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.
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.

Review:

For lovers of this series, rest assured, all the mysteries wrap up in an amazing, even more surprising fashion than could have ever been expected in a delicious 451 pages! This book is by far my favorite in the series, although that is a difficult choice to make, because the trilogy could have been one extremely long book. Emerald Green has everything (minor spoilers): a treasure hunt, broken hearts made from marzipan, strict dance and history lessons, an 18th century ball with unplanned events, secret texts in boring books, a teen costume party, forbidden late-night missions in the past, tons of surprises, and a final battle between good and bad.

Emerald Green is amazing conclusion to a stunning series! When I finished it, I felt like I had when I finished all seven Harry Potters. I was extremely satisfied but deeply saddened at the same time. Luckily, just like the Harry PottersRuby Red has a movie adaptation, Rubinrot, currently only in German. However, an English trailer is out, so hopefully an English version will be available soon!

For Ruby Red lovers looking for more, I would recommend the Leland Sisters series, starting with Bewitching Season, by Marissa Doyle. It is also a young adult fantasy book that takes place in 1837 London, with romance, extravagant balls, and magic!
