City of Ships

by Mary Hoffman
Release date: March 1, 2010
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

The new installment in the critically acclaimed Stravaganza series transports readers to a world much like our own – but where magic and piracy come to life in the Italian town of Classe.

The Stravagante is Isabel, a younger twin by a matter of minutes. Her talisman is a pouch of silver mosaic tiles and she stravagates to Classe, where she is met by Flavia, a successful female merchant who trades spices, silks, tapestries, and whose son is an outcast and a pirate. Isabel finds that Classe and Bellezza are under threat from attack by the fierce Gate people. What can she do to help save the city? This is a thrilling story packed with action, pirates and drama.

Fans of fantasy and historical fiction alike who have flocked to the Stravaganza series will welcome this action-packed adventure, which can be read alone or as a companion to the previous novels.
