Gwendolyn ist am Boden zerstört. War Gideons Liebesgeständnis nur eine Farce, um ihrem großen Gegenspieler, dem düsteren Graf von Saint Germain, in die Hände zu spielen? Fast sieht es für die junge Zeitreisende so aus.

Doch dann geschieht etwas Unfassbares, das Gwennys Weltbild einmal mehr auf den Kopf stellt. Für sie und Gideon beginnt eine atemberaubende Flucht in die Ve

I can't answer all your questions, sadly a lot of answers just weren't given in the books.
1) The answer to this is never given. However at the end it's shown that Dr White suspects Whitman is up to something, perhaps he knows he's the count and that the whole thing is a lie, so perhaps that played into it but it's never explained.
2) I have no idea. It's never explained either, though this is certainly a good theory and one I like very much.
3) Lucy and Paul are long dead by the time Gwen is born and the Chronograph was left with her grandfather where he then hid it in his house for Gwen to find. (less)

“You mean he's not afraid of me because I'm a woman? He ought to see Tomb Raider sometime. For all he knows, I could have a nuclear bomb under my dress and a hand grenade in each cup of my bra. I call it antifeminist!”

This was the best book in the trilogy. I call it an outstanding finale. More excitement, more thrill, more fun, more emotions and so many unexpected twists and turns. I love this whole series so much, it has exactly what I look for in books: a fantastic way to escape reality for a

What's what: Time travel, vague prophecies, silly heroine, douchey hero, evul Count with nefarious plans, oh noes, can silly heroine/douchey hero stop evul Count?

-Gwen was a mopey cow, all she did was whine about Gideon, jump to conclusions about him, and get jealous whenever he was around other girls. She should have been concentrating on her time travel or on finding a way to stop that evul Count guy instead of acting all melodramatic about a guy she'd only met a couple of weeks ago.
No.its over. no. I NEED MORE!!! :''( I will never get over these books!!! SO GOOD!!! Okay lets review this bitch. Ready? Ready when you are. *crying* These books were so magical,funny,enlightening,dark,mysterious,tear-making,ground-breaking..addicting!!! ♥
I love love love Gideon and Gwen..orrr shall i say Gwenny?? *starts crying again* Even if their relationship was formed in only a couple of weeks,maybe a month, i really loved them together. They were meant to be and they are perfect for each

"Did you know that Gideon and I were trained in Krav Maga?"
Charlotte took another step closer to me, and I automatically took one back.
"No, but did you know that at this moment you look like that crazy rodent in Ice Age?"

It was a cute ending.

Overall Precious Stone Trilogy was a cute and fast paced story. I wish whole event took more than 2 weeks because it seems unreal to fall in love this deeply and learning all the information in 2 weeks.
I wasn't expecting the last turn of events at all! (

I really enjoyed this book and the series overall. However, I found the story (especially the end) a tad too convenient. Also insta love was SO present. And Gwen was a drama queen and didn't really have her priorities straight.

This is the story of how a potentially good premise and a relatively good and entertaining first book turned into a disappointing sequel and a friggin' mess at the end.
Seriously, I'm utterly surprised at how quickly it all went downhill since the moment those two kids kissed at the end of first book. From that on, it was all about Gwendolyn's raging hormones and how she just lost her senses around plain and bland Gideon (those descriptions making him seem like a greek god don't live up to how ac

This was the best of the trilogy because it played with time travel the best. I read them all back to back and I'm not sure how the books would really stand up on their own because there was definitely only one arc that you had to wait until book 3 to see any twists or payoff. One twist was soooooo transparent though, and I felt like this just could have done more with the cool premise.

Caution - LOTS of fat shaming throughout. I remember chapter 9 being pretty full of it. Descriptions like "his

Ben çok sevdim bu seriyi, yazarı, karakterleri ve özellike Xemerius'u.
Gwen de en sevdiğim kız karakterlerden biri oldu ve denilenin aksine hiç de onursuz, gurursuz gelmedi bana. İlk iki kitapta sevmiştim ama yorumları okuyunca bu kitapta soğurum sanıp korkmuştum biraz. 16 yaşında bir kız zaten başka nasıl davranabilirdi ki olaylar ve hissettikleri karşısında? Tepkileri gayet gerçekçi ve eğlenceliydi.

Αχ μολις τελειωσα μια ακομα αγαπημενη τριλογια, μπορω να πω οτι περασα πολυ καλα με την παρεα των απολαυστικων βιβλίων της Kerstin Gier.
Gwyneth “Gwen” Shepherd is in a race against time—past, present and future. She’s the last in a long line of time travelers, tied to the infamous Comte de St. Germaine, hunted through the ages by a rival secret society called the Florentine Alliance. The time travel gene only appears in one family member per generation, and up until a few weeks ago, everyone assumed it was Gwen’s overachieving cousin Charlotte.

Now our awkward, rather goofy heroine has days to cram a lifetime’s worth of educatio
I really enjoyed this book, in fact, the entire trilogy has been amazing. I think all the problems I had with Gwen's age or whatever, did not matter so much because this story is very, very good. It's true that perhaps, this could have been better as a standalone or a bilogy, but anyway...

I think, my only objection is that the story takes place on a couple of weeks, maybe two in total. And so, the love story felt quite rushed. But, we need to see the positive side, there is no love triangles her

I really enjoyed this series! This book was a good conclusion to the series. I was expecting a bit more but in the end I have no complaints. I read this trilogy pretty quickly because I was so entertained with plot. I am currently in the process of reading the author's Silver trilogy, which is also very good!
Ist auch nach dem gefühlten 10 mal gelesen mein Lieblingsbuch in der Reihe.

Was für ein schönes Ende 😍😁.
Nachdem mir "Rubinrot" und "Saphirblau" schon so gut gefallen haben, war ich richtig neugierig auf das Finale (denn bisher habe ich auch nur die ersten beiden Filme gesehen 😁).

Zur Handlung möchte ich nichts verraten, falls es tatsächlich noch Leute (wie mich) gibt, die diese Reihe nicht bereits vor Jahren gelesen haben.

Insgesamt spielt die gesamte Geschichte innerhalb von wenigen Wochen und von daher ist es auch nicht überraschend, dass sich die Charaktere nic
How am I so behind on my reviews? How? *deep sigh*

Emerald Green was disappointing. I might as well get this out of the way really quickly, because while I really enjoyed reading both Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue - they were funny and light-hearted and extremely entertaining - I was thoroughly unimpressed with this one. The writing style was the same as always - not particularly flowery, but it flowed nicely nonetheless - but most of the things that made me excited about the first two books were go
Určitě znáte ten pocit, když na nějakou knihu a nejlépe, když je to závěr vaší oblíbené série, čekáte dlouho, předlouho. Až se s blížícím se datem vydání začínáte bát, jestli se něco nepokazí a kniha nebude úplně strašná…
Jsem ohromně ráda, že vás v tomto případě můžu naprosto upřímně ujistit, že nic takového se u Zelené jako smaragd rozhodně nestalo. Je to totiž výborné zakončení jedné skvělé série!

Vůbec tu nechci nijak rozebírat děj Zelené, protože to by vám naspoilerovalo Modrou a to by těm,

And so ends the wonderful re-read of this series. Gwen and Gideon will always hold a special place in my heart. There were a few loose ends I feel like could have tied things up a little more nicely but it's fine, really. I enjoyed the final epilogue with Lucy and Paul too--it was nice to see everyone had their happily ever after. :)

"Ready?" I asked with a grin.
"Ready when you are," he replied, grinning back.

This was such a great series. I might have to add this one to my physical collection. I love Gwyneth and Gideon as characters and as a romance. And the story is very intriguing. But I do wish it was a little better explained. Like where did the chronograph come from and why did it work the way that it did and why did it create a philosopher's stone? And where did the prophecies come from? Someone from the future who knew all that happened must have traveled back and made them, but who and why?

La primera vez que leí estos libros fue hace cinco años. Los disfruté mucho, tanto como ahora. Suele pasar, en este tipo de libros, que uno de los factores clave es el romance, sin el cual la saga no tendría sentido. Creo que esta saga es diferente, porque aunque tiene romance, no creo que sea lo central. De partida, Gwen es un personaje demasiado divertido e imaginativo. Fuera de eso, hay una multitud de personajes únicos que aportan a que sea una historia entretenida y liviana, como

Hello, plottwists! I love these books so much and they should get more attention. The series is in my top3!

But I really love the relationship between Gwynneth and Gideon. They’re so cute! This was my 3th or 4th reread. I didnt understand the sexual references the first few times. This time I got them all. Xemerius is a king in those :’). If there wasn’t a xemerius in the books, then it would have been kinda boring! But needless to say that I love theses books!

Ich liebe die Geschichten von Kerstin Gier. Sie sind wundervoll fantastisch, witzig und gefüllt mit liebenswerten Charakteren. Auch in diesem Buch trifft dies voll und ganz zu. Die Trilogie hat mir sehr gut gefallen und ich vermisse die Welt der Zeitreisenden schon jetzt.

I just love love love the Precious Stone Trilogy! I don't know how many times I have already re-read these books, but it's always funny to read them, no matter how old I am.

Emerald Green is the last installment and it's definitely as good as the previous two. However, the first part was a little bit long-drawned, because our poor Gwendolyn (Gwyneth) was whiny at the beginning. Nevertheless, Gwen has Leslie (Lesley) and Xemerius, who hel

Although this was by far the best book out of the three, I'm still extremely relieved that it's finally over! I had heard so much good about this series and was extremely disappointed. I did really enjoy the time travelling aspect but the characters were two dimensional and very juvenile. I just couldn't relate to them at all. All three books are going into a pile to bring to my local used bookstore in exchange for books I'll hopefully enjoy more!

Despite being unhappy with the ending, I still really enjoyed this series as a whole. I wish they wouldn't have wrapped things up so quickly and gave a bit more details throughout the book. It has potential to be a 5 star book, but there were just a few things that were left to vague that caused it to miss the mark. I wish there was one more book in this series to continue the story on. The author could easily get more out of this story.

I really liked all three books in this trilogy. The plot is pretty simple but the books are very fun and pleasant reads. The characters are nice to get to know and Lesley is possibly my favorite person. I enjoyed all the books and I especially liked the quotes scattered around in the books. I finished this trilogy without breaks in it and I think it's pretty fast paced. I feel like most of the plot took place in this book, but that could be because I've gathered information from the first two bo ...more
