32 posts | 126 read | 42 to read
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.

Hi everyone! I really enjoyed the last book in this series. It ended very well. This was a fun time travel series with some romance. #kindlefire #paperwhite #library #bookgeek #booklover #litsy

So after struggling so much with the German version (it was not so hard for the first 2 books) I found the translated version to be much easier... So I might stand a chance to finish it over the weekend now!

Sace I enjoyed this series (in English 😊) 10mo
julesG I still haven't started this. 😑 10mo
catsuit_mango @julesG I'm curious to know if you think the writing style changed or not. I do not remember struggling so much with the first 2 books. 10mo

julesG Eventually started this and might bail before the first chapter is done. I have a hard time getting into it. 9mo
catsuit_mango Thanks @julesG it seems that the style (and not only my rusty German) might have something to do with this :) 9mo
julesG Yes. The style is atrocious. I will never understand how these books have become so popular. I would not have dared to publish them had they been my own work. I'm a terrible perfectionist. 9mo

I'm nearly at the middle of the book, I really want to finish the Serie but I can't seem to concentrate. I don't know if it's because my German is rusty or because the story is blah... Does it get better? Should I just give up?

Ruby Red trilogy, book three.

This is a light and breezy YA fantasy romance with a lot of time-traveling adventure. Though the events in the trilogy take place over a two week period, it seems longer because of the constant jumping back and forth in time. I enjoyed almost every character except for Gwen and Gideon. The insta-love annoyed me. The ending ties everything up in a nice, neat bow.

Linear @TricksyTails this is after 4 weeks,at least 5 sessions 3 to 5 hours at a time. This is 5 hours of work. Its tedious but looks cool from a distence. My mom got it for me last christmas. 2y
Linear @DGRachel thank you! 2y
TricksyTails It's gorgeous! Do you know where she got it from? I'd imagine this is also very relaxing to do. 2y
Linear @TricksyTails it isn't, but it gives me something to mark time with while listening to audiobooks. I had to get thw brushes special from hobby lobby. And work with the oil paint a bit. You can see in person the parts where i was still learning the right consistency. I think she got it on Amazon. 2y
TricksyTails 😂 I obviously know nothing about painting. All your hard work definitely paid off because it looks amazing! (edited) 2y
Linear @TricksyTails lol thanks. Im going to go over parts of it i smeared and detail lines later. I accedently flicked black on her face, omg i about rage quit. It took fast acting and tears to fix that, sigh. But, again, its going to look bad ass on my wall when its done. 2y
TricksyTails It already looks pretty badass! 🙌 2y

8 hours left in this book. I dont much care for Mr. Marley, i have quite a few theories (which ill share in the comments under spoilers, incase im right) about whats going on. And also #audiopainting is coming along again.

Linear Theory number one, Gwyneth parents are Paul and Lucy. Theory number 2, count Saint-Germain wants the Philosopher's Stone and that's what's inside of the chronograph. And Gwyneth and Gideon have to die to open it. Theory number three, count Saint-Germain killed Gwyneth grandfather. 2y
Reggie Wow that looks great!! 2y
Linear @Reggie thank you, the next photo i took is 3 hours of work after thos one. This one was two almost three hours from the session before. 2y

This was a fun and light series and I really enjoyed the audio books. The time traveling bits were confusing sometimes, which is really say something. I watch Doctor Who and can handle a lot of timey wimey. Some of the time traveling plot points just didn't quite make sense. The ending was unexpected, but was satisfying. I would definitely recommend this series if you areblooking for a fun, fast read.

tpixie Fun! Great cover too! 💚💚💚 2y

This was a fun series. It wrapped up a little too quickly for me, as I had some more questions I wanted answered, but overall very enjoyable. #litsyAtoZ #letterE

alanacristin I loved the first two! Will have to find an affordable copy of this last one. The bookstore the other day had it 27$ in paperback 💔 glad you liked it! 2y

Overall an entertaining series that wrapped up nicely. It took longer than I would have liked to read this. Partly it was because I was back at work this week and partly because there was a slight slowdown around page 300.

CoverToCoverGirl Hello kitty! 😻 3y
Sace @CoverToCoverGirl that's Bat. He's a cranky old man, but I love him. 3y
CoverToCoverGirl Love the name😂 He's beautiful! 3y

Sace @CoverToCoverGirl My husband named him. He comes up with names like "Bat" and "Ash". I come up with names like "Larry" "Frederick" and "Shirley". True story. 3y
Mariposa_Bookworm Bat is beautiful and unimpressed. I love him! 💕🐾😻 3y
CoverToCoverGirl @Sace You have to admit "Bat the Cat" does have a certain ring to it! ?? and a little "catitude" is always charming! 3y
Sace @CoverToCoverGirl I tend to morph it into "Batrick" sometimes "Fat Batrick". He's plump to say the least. 3y
Sace @Mariposa_Bookworm it is impossible to impress Bat. He is fluent in "Harrumph" ? 3y
GypsyKat I liked this series. I thought it was fun. 😊 3y
Sace @GypsyKat I did too. I loved Xemerius. 3y
GypsyKat @Sace Yes! So funny! He was great! I actually thought there was a great small group dynamic throughout the series. 3y
Sace @GypsyKat there really was! I kinda wanted Xemerius for a pet. 3y
GypsyKat @Sace Right? He was the best! 🙃 3y
Sace @GypsyKat and he loved to read trashy romance. 😂 3y

I need some lighter fare before I start March Book Three.

Mariposa_Bookworm The cover is soooooo pretty! 3y
Sace @Mariposa_Bookworm I am so in love with the covers in this series. Sometimes I just stare at them. This one is probably my favorite. 3y
Mariposa_Bookworm @Sace Sometimes getting hypnotized by the cover is not a good thing. The cover was the only good thing about the last book I read, Heartless by Marissa Meyer. Do you recommend this series? Is the story engaging? 3y
See All 13 Comments
Sace That's a tough question @Mariposa_Bookworm. I'm really not a very critical or discerning reader, so I hate to say I "recommend" it because my standards are pretty low. ? This is YA and it's pretty simple YA at that, but it's not a difficult read and the story keeps me engaged (which like I said isn't saying much.) Honestly there's a gargoyle that gets introduced in book 2. I'm in it for him. ? 3y
saresmoore GREEN COVER! Preeeeetty! 🤤 3y
mcipher Great cover! And I love gargoyle characters. There's one in a great series by Shawna Swendson. I'm also a kind of trashy reader so I feel you. 👍 3y
Sace @mcipher YES! The Enchanted Inc. Series? Love that one! 3y
mcipher @Sace Yes!! Couldn't think of the name, only the author. That is a fun series! 3y
Sace @mcipher It really is! I feel like I remember seeing there's a short that features the gargoyle? I haven't read it. And I think I still haven't read the last 2 in the series. 3y
mcipher @Sace Yeah, I'm not sure I read them all. I lost track! I hadn't heard about the short but I'm going to look into it - thanks!! He was a great character. 3y
AnnieReads That cover is gorgeous! 3y
Sace @AnnieReads honestly I picked this series because of the covers. Thank goodness it turned out ok. 3y

I finished this last book of the Ruby Red trilogy last night. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I've seen other reviews say it felt "too immature". Well, yeah. It's written from the perspective of a 16yr old. Did they expect aged wisdom? It's fun, and surprisingly funny. She can time travel, she can talk to ghosts, she has a hilarious best friend, and a love of karaoke. What's not to like? The overall tone reminded me of Buffy.

Abby-J "Reminded me of Buffy" gets immediately added to my TBR. 3y
GypsyKat @Abby-J The tone of the series reminded me of Buffy, not the content. Really the humor, the fun characters, and the life and death mysteries mixed in with a bit of high school drama. It was a fun, easy trilogy. You'll have to let me know what you think when you read it. 👍🏼 3y

Perfect ending of an amazing series.
I couldn't be more happy with how things turned out.
All in all, it was an interesting and fast paced read as well as Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue.
I am sure I will be rereading this series in the future and I will pay attention to little details I surely missed this time.
Nicely written, Kerstin.
