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.
I read the Ruby Red trilogy in record time. Seriously. It took me 2 days.
Emerald Green was just as good as Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue. The stakes are high, and Gwyneth is running out of time; both in the present and the past.
One of the really fun things about the book is you see events from the first and second books from a different perspective. For example, you get the full story of what happened when Gwen travelled back for the third time and saw herself.
The book definitely had a lot of unexpected twists, and left me with a warm happy feeling when I finished. Some characters really do surprise you.
My only complaint about the book is it’s the last one. Now I’m stuck with that sad feeling you get when you finish a series.
I’m going to give Emerald Green five out of five hearts.

It was an amazing book, and a fun, fast read!
