Another great Blackwood Security book by Elise Noble. The Girl with the Emerald Ring Is the first of three books where Elise reveals more about the mysterious Alaric, introduced in Out of The Blue, his past and his relationship with Emmy. The book is filled with adventure, humor, and intrigue.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. A great read.
My favorite series by far.
I LOVE the Blackwood Security books. I have been dying to learn more about Alaric since Emmy met up with him in that basement. Alaric is fantastic and Bethany is hysterical and charming. I cannot wait to read the next two books. I honestly did not think I’d love any character as much as I do Emmy but Alaric is close to pulling ahead. And hint hint Elise I’d also love books for all the Sirius boys.
If you have not read any of the Blackwood Series I cannot recommend them enough. The characters are smart, witty, sarcastic, sexy, and have great back stories. Her storylines are interesting and not cookie cutter.
You'll be hooked immediately. With the backstory of Alaric, the introduction of new characters, and the best part, Emmy finds a mini-me! If that doesn't intrigue you to read, nothing will. The story includes an art heist, the rebirth of a socialitè, and much much more. With every book of Elise’s, her characters pop up in other books to reveal additional details about them, which keeps you wanting more. Just read it, you won't regret it!
