    It s not like I didn t REALLY enjoy the first book in the Stravaganza series I did But City Of Stars, the second, very welcome installment, is a marvel It expands on the universe introduced in the first novel In scope, of course, as a new Stravangante Georgia escapes her unhappy real life tortured as she is by her brother Russell and her lack of self confidence and friends and lands in another Talian city state this time the intoxicating city of Remora, on the brink of its annual horse race that pits the 12 sections of the city against each other The sheer amount of detail that goes into Hoffman s descriptions of this Remora is breathtaking culture, history and tradition are mixed into the magical and fantastical, as a winged horse is birthed in the Ram the Twelfth to which Georgia declares her allegiance, and the Twelfth which is aligned to the Bellezza of the first novel.But what is really exciting about this second novel is the explosion of character development that takes place within its pages She takes every character from the first book and gives them space in this one, particularly the hero Lucien now Luciano and the hateful, blue cloaked spy Enrico but also introduces an entire set of new, fascinating characters, from other Stravaganti Paolo to a sweeping introduction to members of the ruling di Chimici family No longer are the di Chimici viewed merely as pure, black and white villains it becomes clear that the weak, snivelly ambassador Rinaldo glimpsed in C...

    At first I didn t think I would like this as much as the first book, as the description didn t sound as interesting However, I really ended up enjoying it and couldn t put it down, just like the first This book was set in Remora Siena in our world and most of the book was about the Stellata, a great horse race held once a year but celebrated all year A whole new set of characters, in addition to Luciano, Ariana, Rodolfo, Dr Dethridge, Silvia and the Di Chimici family Georgia, a classmate of Lucien s from London, stravagates to Remora after finding a winged horse talisman auspicious because of the recent birth of a winged horse in Remora and is found by a local who belong to the Rams on the Twelve divisions within the city She befriends Cesare and his father, who is also a Stravagante and she runs into Lucia...

    Throwback review This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is my undisputed favourite of all the Stravaganza books Coming from someone who s read and loved every single one of these books for six years, that is no light compliment City of Stars was the book that really put Stravaganza on my favourites shelf The story follows Georgia, horse crazy tomboy, who s constantly being tormented by her stepbrother Georgia finds a little winged horse statuette in an antique shop, falls in love with it, and takes it home It in turn takes her to Talia, to the city of Remora Georgia is suddenly neck deep in a world of horse racing, city rivalries, and political tension Why should you read this book I have one sentence for you AU sixteenth century Italy The story switches between present day England, and Talia, and the setting of Remora is absolutely breathtaking Based on the city of Siena in our world, Remora s intricacies and horse racing obsession is so much fun to read about I personally went through...

    A very sweet, but also realistic book, highly recommendable for girls and boys between the ages of 10 and 15 16 Georgia O Grady is a teenaged girl who likes horses, but is a bit of an outcast at school and has a terrible stepbrother who likes to torment her when she s at home When she buys a little statue of a winged horse in an antique shop, she discovers a whole new world, with a different Italy and a horserace that will change her life While there are some times strange jumps in the story and the story suddenly goes way too fast near the end it almost feel liks the author hadn t realised the deadline was in 20 days and the plot still needed to end and all the loose ends brought together it s still well written and captivating I loved this book as a teenager, wanting to escape the world like ...

    Somehow this just doesn t hold up as well as the first book though all the problems I had with it are also present in City of Masks, so I really don t know why they bothered me so much here.I still love the premise and the world though, and I definitely still want to reread the rest of the series
