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.

I really liked the first book in this series, so I went straight on with this second book, City of Stars. The setting is slightly different from the first book, still Renaissance Italy, but now they're in Remora (Sienna) with new main character Georgia. I really liked this book as well, the time t...

Review for first four books: It has been a long time since I've read this book, but I remember I really enjoyed reading them back in the day. It was an original idea and fun to read. If you haven't I'd recommend you try it. But I do remember that by the time I was around the fourth book I thought it...
