Sapphire Blue, by Kerstin Gier, published by Henry Holt & Co (English), 2012
Categories: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Time Travel
I enjoyed Sapphire Blue much more than Ruby Red, the first book of the series by Kerstin Gier. Sapphire Blue goes into more detail about Gwen (the main character), Lesley, her best friend, and Gideon, her time travel partner (or enemy?) as well as Xemerius the ghost Gargoyle. I like the character, Xemerius, and how he helps Gwen. I could not put this book down! Now I need to find a copy of Emerald Green, the next book in the series.
