Emerald Green is the final book in this wonderful trilogy. It picks up soon after the events of the last book, Sapphire Blue. Gwen and Gideon, partners in time travel, are going through a rough patch in the love department. Gideon has broken Gwen’s heart all because of a scheme by the Count. They still have to figure out what the Count is up to and what he plans to do when the Circle is closed. They also have to figure out the mystery of why Paul and Lucy ran away. They enlist the help of Gwen’s friend Lesley and Gideon’s brother Raphael to solve all these mysteries; along the way truths are revealed that show Gwen to her foundation.
I really enjoyed this series. It is smart and fun and very entertaining. Gwen and Gideon are complex characters who you can’t help but love. I have to admit the Xermerius, the ghost demon, actually stole most of the scenes, but he is a ghost demon and quite funny. I like the time travel aspect of these books and how they have to make sure they don’t run into themselves in the past. Everything in the trilogy was basically a lead up to the big showdown with the Count and I was a little disappointed in how that ended. However, the twist with Gideon and Gwen at the end was very interesting. I almost want another book just to see how that plays out.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher at ALA 2013. Thank you!
