That awkward moment when you don't die and everything changes, or our reviews of Emerald Green
Emerald Green (Precious Stone Trilogy, #3) - Kerstin Gier,Anthea Bell

Emily ~ This book, once again, lived up to my established expectations for Kerstin Geir: it was fun, clever, witty, and fast-paced with a delightful heroine who I have grown to love even more since the first book. The book opens with Gwen once again at odds with Gideon, dreading attending a ball with the creepy-as-hell Count Saint-Germain, and in the dark to most of the goings of the secret society that is based around her inherited time travel capabilities.

 

Rosi ~ Here is what I will say about this book: it was a rousing ending to (I’m going to use this word again) a romp of a series. It delivers everything promised in the first two books, and in spades: strange magic, sinister forces, love, friendship, and quite a lot more.

by Kerstin Gier

Rating: ★★★★★

Overall this book was really good. I enjoyed how the romance played out between Ruby and Gideon. My only problem though was that it felt like the ending was a little rushed.

WARNING: SPOILERS







Okay, so when I was getting to the end I realized that there were only about thirty pages left. I was sure that there was a fourth book that was out and I was the only one that didn't know about, but then as I kept reading I realized that this is how they were going to end the book.
Basically it was just a quick conversation between the count (Mr.Whitman) and then Gideon arrives, get's shot and then we find out he is immortal. All that happened in the span of about fifteen pages. I just was just kind of expecting something with more fighting scenes, or like Gideon get's shot, but then Gwenyth has to go back in time to save him.
It just seemed like the ending was forced and that the author just wanted to end this book fast.
I don't know and please no hate. I am just saying my opinion.
Besides I actually really did like this book

I think my favorite part was when Gwenyth get's stabbed and Gideon and we finally realize that Gideon really does love Gwenyth. It was just so adorable and caught up int the heat of the moment I actually did shed a few tears.

I have to say though that my favorite character has and always will be Xemerious. He was hilarious and in the movie he was so cute.

Anyways I don't usually make really long reviews and so I am going to end this now.
So, thanks for reading and yeah.

Emerald Green (Rouge Rubis #3)
Emerald Green (Precious Stone Trilogy, #3) - Kerstin Gier,Anthea Bell

4 STARS
the book was absolutely captivating, and terrific. all the time travel and lesson about history and those fun characters that I became to love... So many feels!
but I must say I got lost and confused through the story that I started drawing schemes and names and date every few chapters. even though avery thing was in the last page (but it wasn't technical for ebooks) but it so much fun!!
I Recommend this serie, it's va must read for mystery lovers. 

note:
would've give this book 5 stars if it wasn't for all the unfinished business.
this serie needed a 4th book, because obviously green emerald left a lot of gaps 
for example: [spoilers]
• how come gwen see ghosts (that seemed all neglected! )
• how come Mr.good guy became immortal if he didn't sacrifice the raven (the ruby)
• and what's up with the witch stuff *???*
• she can see demons and feel them when they touched her but never asked why??! 
• and what about the other characters ( grace/ Mr.forgotthename de villiers. Lesley/Raphael . Charlotte. .....) the sory was focusing so much on gwen/Gideon thatbit negleted the others. ..

I'm so confused and a bit melancholic... I already miss them :/

BUT to conclude this review I must say that the author had done a great job and must thank her for this wonderful trilogy. I ENJOYED it very much!!

Emerald Green (Precious Stone Trilogy, #3) - Kerstin Gier,Anthea Bell

Kirsten Gier ends her Precious Stone Trilogy with Emerald Green. I don't think I mentioned this in previous reviews, but this entire series is translated from German. I can't say I've read a ton of translations, but I never felt like the language was clunky or didn't work. Anthea Bell, who translated this series, did an impeccable job.

 

Overall, I liked the series, but it did always seem like one long story rather than three books. The stopping points seemed more arbitrary than anything. But I think the story is good and interesting. The twist at the end was well done and I did not see it coming, but it did feel a bit anticlimatic.

 

I also would have liked to see a bit more of an ending in regards to certain characters.

 

But I would definitely read more of Kirsten Gier's books. And Anthea Bell's translations.
