    Nothing I love more than a well-rounded character and intense plot.

    "The end!"

    What a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. May contain minor spoilers.

    I love how neatly everything about Gwen's family was tied up - it was an excellent decision on Gier's part to head in that direction.

    I love that the butler gets in on the adventurous action!

    Nothing in the world is going to convince me to get behind Gideon, however, but that's mostly because I'm really bored of the Darcy trope. I get it, he's mean because he loves you. I did like their ending, it was sweet and well-deserved.

    "A little unrealistic, but thoroughly enjoyable"
    Any additional comments?

    I have to admit that this series was a bit of a guilty pleasure - I felt a little ashamed to be listening to a teeny-bopper romance at my age, but I couldn't resist.

    "Final book, predictable but entertaining"

    First impressions

    I started reading this series mostly because Audible was having a sale on first of a series books. The premise of time travelling seemed appealing and so I went for it. The first installment, Ruby Red, was good enough, I liked the fact that Gwendolyn wasn't just a boy driven character, even though it was obvious that they were going to get together and hence I went for the second one.

    The second one, Sapphire Blue, was ok, but I think I fell more for Xemerus than the other characters. I did want to know what the whole mystery was, but the love part felt a bit forced, sadly enough.

    So here we are, at the end of the series, and I am giving it a round and final 4, even though I was a bit disappointed at certain points.

    Final thoughts

    Let us start with the things I liked, both in general and in the series.

    As I mentioned the premise of time travelling was appealing to me. The whole building of it around a secret society as well as the workings of the chronograph was nice additions, and I would've liked a bit more of background there. We didn't have it, the whole references to the "gene" and the need of blood for the chronograph to work are not explained, but maybe this is a better option than bad science.

    The descriptions of the dresses, and hence Madame Rossini, were delightful. If you follow my blog or my reviews, you probably know that I am a sucker for period dressing. If you didn't know that...well now you do.

    There were a couple of twists at the end of the series, a couple as in two major ones, at least from my point of view. I will not extend on this point since I do not want to give spoilers, but one of them was pretty obvious, and the other not so much, so I will give it a "meh" on plot twisting. Some people have complained about the ending, and it does feel like suddenly this was more than a trilogy, but then again it could just be that Gier likes her cliff-hangers, no?

    Now, the things I didn't like. It is a bit sad when you like the secondary characters more than you do the primary ones, or at least it seems like a lot of energy is invested in characters you never got to care for, and this was the case for me. Give me more Leslie! More Xemerus...Gwendolyn and Gideon felt flat a lot of times and I felt like the story could've been carried almost without them.

    As I mentioned their relationship suddenly happened and while this is a bit typical (not that is a good thing) when portraying teen love situations, it makes it even more "blah" since it has been overdone. But it gets point for not pushing on a love triangle.

    So I gave it a 4, mostly because as predictable as it was at times, it was enjoyable, it gave me exactly what I was expecting from it, no more and just a little bit less. I would recommend to someone looking for light series with fun secondary characters.

    Good job by Marisa Calin!

    "drama queen and easy solutions"

    3.5.......

    I enjoyed this book as a whole and liked the idea of the theories and the sense of time loop in this trilogy. But since the beginning of this book, Gwyneth has been quite a bit too much of a drama queen and it has started gotten onto my nerves several times. The instalove she has is also quite dramatic and much and I didn't really buy it here.
    It had so much more potential to build up the characters and the plot. But the end was kind of disappointing to me. The solution was really easy and cut short. I wish we get to go more in depth with the supporting characters such as Paul, Lucy, Dr. White and others. I still love how they cut back to Paul and Lucy in the end but it's still not satisfying enough for me. It just..... end.... like..... and so?
    Enjoyed the trilogy overall, but not the best it could have been in my opinion :(

    "Perfect ending"
    If you could sum up Emerald Green in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, exciting, twisting!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Emerald Green?

    The ending, of course!


    Have you listened to any of Marisa Calin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just the first two books in this trilogy, I really enjoyed her performance!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The twist in the end, had me on the edge of my seat!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this series!

    "Love how she wrapped everything up."
    If you could sum up Emerald Green in three words, what would they be?

    It's Action Filled


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Gwen. I wish she was a little more forward and stood up for herself more but all in all she is a nice lead


    What does Marisa Calin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All of the accents were superb. I loved all of the variations she gave


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene where Gwen and Gideon find out about the power of the raven. I dont want to give anything away, but the scene that is in that revelation is my favorite


    Any additional comments?

    Although a little predictable at times, this book was pretty good. I had a lot of questions from the first book, and this one wrapped them all in a pretty little bow. I would like to have seen what becomes of Gideon and Gwen and if their children in the future.

    "Overall great trilogy but it needs a little work"

    I loved all of the books, but this last book felt very rushed and not everything was tied up at the end. I am a little annoyed that Mr Whites son was never addressed but James was. Also the epilogue was kind of like what the heck happened? Spoiler alert! Implying that Gwen was related to Mr. Bernard. How did he end up being a butler; that's not a clean ending. It just felt messy. Also how did count saint German get the other elixir? It needed to be written a little tighter. Could have removed some of the romantic scenes of will they or won't they to make room for these endings.

    "Best of a mediocre series"

    The series was filled with stupid teenage angst that if it had been avoided would have made the story move quicker and with less frustration. The story was appealing for the most part, but the main character's stupidity made it almost unbearable. The supporting characters, namely Zemerius, Leslie, and Aunt Maddie were actually the highlight of the series. Charlotte and Aunt Glenda were annoying and stupid in their own right. This novel actually got really good about halfway through when the Gwyneth and Gideon started actually talking. For most of the novel I wanted him to just gag her so she would let him get a word in.

    "Fantastic fantasy series"

    A cross between Back to the Future time travel and Harry Potter magic. I enjoyed the performance and the story held my attention. This is more of a young adult series with a touch of young romance and adventure. A light hearted summer read.
