To be in the past and freshly in love? Forget it, says reluctant time-traveler Gwendolyn Shepherd. Besides, she and Gideon have bigger problems to deal with. Like saving the world. And learning to dance the minuet. One as challenging as the other. When Gideon starts to behave really weirdly, Gwendolyn knows that she’s got to get her hormones in order as soon as possible. She’s really lucky to have clever advisers at her side: her best friend Leslie, the little gargoyle Xemerius, the school ghost James and her grandfather in his younger years, who gives her important tips from the past. But when Gideon and Gwendolyn join forces to oppose a threatening alliance and end up in the clutches of the Count of St. Germain, their love is put to a grueling test.

Sapphire Blue is based on the second volume of the Precious Stone Trilogy by Kerstin Gier, which has sold over two million copies in Germany. The trilogy itself has been translated into 29 languages. *Audience members under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
