My bookshelves (1)

In My bookshelves I discuss the books I got or want to have. For the first one I want to place one of my all time favorite series in the spotlight: Stravaganza by Mary Hoffman. The sixth book is coming out this summer and I can't hardly wait! 

Every book has a different main character. At the beginning of the book they discover an object with which they can travel in time and place. They all travel to sixteenth century Talia, similar to our Italy. But every talisman brings the owner to a different city in Talia. In their city they have to fulfill some kind of assignment. They never know what exactly it is, but it's always dangerous and enemies are everywhere. 

So, finally, the sixth book in the series is almost here. I've been waiting for two years and I'm so curious. 
I already love the cover. It's just so beautiful!

Title: City of Swords
Author: Mary Hoffman
Published: July 5th, 2012 (Bloomsbury)

Series: Stravaganza #6
Synopsis from Goodreads: Desperately unhappy, Laura has resorted to secretly self-harming. But Laura is a Stravagante, somebody who can travel in time and space. When she finds her talisman, a small silver dagger, she stravagates with it to sixteenth-century Fortezza, a town similar to Lucca in Italy, where she meets her Stravagante, who is a swordsmith. But Laura also meets the charming and attractive Ludo, and falls for him. Their love for each other is tested when Ludo lays claim to the crown of Fortezza, and Laura finds herself fighting on the side of the Stravaganti opposing him.
