Author(s): Mary Hoffman
Georgia loves horses and hates Russell, her step-brother. It seems Russell's main aim is to make Georgia miserable, whereas all Georgia wants to do is to go horse-riding whenever she can get the opportunity- and to avoid Russell.
When Georgia finally saves up enough money to buy the little model of a winged horse she has admired in the window of an antiques shop, she knows she has to keep it well out of Russell's way in case he realises it is important to her. But what Georgia doesn't know is that the little horse offers her an escape to another world and another time, that of the sixteenth century Remora, a city that is similar to Siena in Italy, but that has evolved quite differently...
City of Stars is the sequel to the acclaimed Stravaganza: City of Masks. Readers will once again be bewitched by the dangerous, treacherous world that is Talia, filled with romance, a touch of magic and fiercely clashing loyalties.
And Georgia will have to work out her role in this exhilarating yet at times terrifying new world.
