Reviews for So Silver Bright
A masterpiece without doubt!
Bertie is not ready to fight Sedna again, not so soon, and when an invitation to attend a party in the Royal Castle arrives she and her company quickly decide to attend. They might not be so thrill about meeting the Queen (from whom they've heard a lot of things... and not all of them so good) but they are eager to lose Sedna.
After a few disappears they finally arrive to the castle where they perform for the Queen in exchange of a wish: Bertie can get what her heart desires most. And she surely knows what she wants: to reunite her family.
But not even the Queen's power can grant her that wish... But she can, at least, offer her all the missing pieces of her parent's story. And without knowing what's coming her way Bertie begins a travel through time to discover all the secrets behind the masks... all the plots that had changed her life and threatens her happiness.
And, at some point, a deal made with a herb-seller to ensure protection is going to change Bertie's future even if she doesn't know it. Is she ready to face what is coming for her?
Is the Théâtre ready for the final battle?
I can say a lot of things about this book, about how it made me feel, how it made me smile and how it made my cry but all the words would not be enough to summon and explain how much I enjoy it and how sad I am now that I've finished this series.
First of all, I don't know if you have been between two loves and know, for sure, that you could be very happy with both guys... but we can't have both of them, right? Bertie can't do that either and it breaks her heart every time she thinks about choosing one of them.
At the end she chooses one, even if she doesn't know it. And I cried, I did. What can I say? I was cheering for both of them because the way they love her is just so sweet and tender...
So, if you are going to pick up this series and read the three books make sure to have a box of tissues next to you.
Despite the bittersweet ending the book was amazing, all the questions were answered and everything had an explanation. The ending came fast with a final twist that knocked my world and I'm sure Bertie's too.
And, as always, Lisa Mantchev's writing was exquisite and marvelous... a good plot needs a good writer, and a good heroine needs a good storyteller, Lisa was both. by Alaiel Kreuz
