City of Stars

Written by Mary Hoffman

Part of the Stravaganza Series

City of Stars Synopsis

The sequel to the international bestseller 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 antique shop. This tiny, 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 competitive 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. 'If you enjoyed Stravaganza: City of Masks then you will love returning to Talia in this exciting sequel. Featuring a flying horse, a fast and furious horse race, kidnapping and much intrigue, this is a great adventure.' - Grainne Cooney, Bookseller Teenage Reading Choice.
