Stravaganza City of Stars

Written by Mary Hoffman

Part of the Stravaganza Series

Stravaganza City of Stars Synopsis

This book is aimed at age-range: 12+. This is the sequel to the international best-selling City of Masks . The time period is the same - C16 Talia as a parallel world version of Italy - but the setting has moved from Bellezza (Venice) to Remora (Siena). The main character in this book is Georgia - who has a love of horses. She is desperate to buy a little, dusty winged horse that has appeared in a local antiques shop. This little, winged horse will prove to be the talisman (as the notebook was for Lucien in City of Masks) that will transport Georgia to Siena - right into the rivalries and the high-octane excitement of the hugely compeititive Stellata horse race - and more. Mary Hoffman has proved herself a mistress of a narrative tour-de-force with City of Masks and this sequel will not disappoint.
