...and so begins the third and final installment (~tear~) of the fabulous Theatre Illuminata series. We've a love triangle to navigate (when you pick up the book, do me the favor of having a laugh at the passage on or about page 11) that is thrown into even greater chaos by the sea witch out to end wreak her revenge on the one that tried to do her in (though Bertie had every right in my opinion...hmph!). The stakes are high for one and all...but the true colors of the ever chameleon like Bertie will be on display by books end.
Things are never easy for Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. Something's happened to the Théâtre Illuminata, putting the only home she's ever known in limbo. Her mother's sanity is fraying under the strain, her father has vanished and an angry goddess is out for revenge. Bertie is caught between her duties and her dreams, just as her heart is torn between Ariel and Nate. But hope glimmers in a Distant Castle, and if Bertie can put on the performance of her life, maybe she can win the magical boon that may save them all.
