I was recently trying to start a new book, and realized that I was having trouble reading it because I was still not over the previous book that I had just finished. The previous book was one in a trilogy (the last one) and I had finished the year off by finishing the series. It seemed like a good idea to write about the trilogy since I enjoyed the books so much, that I’m now struggling to start a new book into the new year.
The trilogy is called the Gem Trilogy and it was originally written in German and then translated into English. The first book is titled Ruby Red and is a great beginning to the story. All the books have mystery and intrigue in them and follow a young girl named Gwen Shepherd. In the first book, Gwen discovers that she has the time traveler gene and now must learn how to be prepared for traveling into the past.
The second book in the trilogy is Sapphire Blue. The mysteries deepen in Sapphire Blue as Gwen continues to discover her abilities and everything that is required to travel in time. She learns lessons about some people she works with, and begins to discover whether or not she can trust herself.
The final book in the series is Emerald Green. In the conclusion, the truth is finally discovered and Gwen learns to trust her instincts. The story ends well, with a little bit of a cliff hanger, allowing the readers to decide whether to be content with the ending or the ability to imagine the life that the different characters lead.
Overall, the series is full of questions that can keep a reader glued to the book. I think that if a person enjoys time travel, then they should pick up this book and discover all the ways time can overlap itself.
