Perchance to Dream by Lisa Mantchev
From Goodreads:
The stuff that dreams are made on.

Act Two, Scene One

Growing up in the enchanted Thèâtre Illuminata, Beatrice Shakespeare Smith learned everything about every play ever written. She knew the Players and their parts, but she didn’t know that she, too, had magic. Now, she is the Mistress of Revels, the Teller of Tales, and determined to follow her stars. She is ready for the outside world.


But the outside world soon proves more topsy-turvy than any stage production. Bertie can make things happen by writing them, but outside the protective walls of the Thèâtre, nothing goes as planned. And her magic cannot help her make a decision between—

Nate: Her suave and swashbuckling pirate, now in mortal peril.

Ariel: A brooding, yet seductive, air spirit whose true motives remain unclear.

When Nate is kidnapped and taken prisoner by the Sea Goddess, only Bertie can free him. She and her fairy sidekicks embark on a journey aboard the Thèâtre’s caravan, using Bertie’s word magic to guide them. Along the way, they collect a sneak-thief, who has in his possession something most valuable, and meet The Mysterious Stranger, Bertie’s father—and the creator of the scrimshaw medallion. Bertie’s dreams are haunted by Nate, whose love for Bertie is keeping him alive, but in the daytime, it’s Ariel who is tantalizingly close, and the one she is falling for. Who does Bertie love the most? And will her magic be powerful enough to save her once she enters the Sea Goddess’s lair?

Once again, LISA MANTCHEV has spun a tale like no other—full of romance, magic, adventure, and fairies, too—that readers won’t want to put down, even after the curtain has closed.

Perchance to Dream, I think every one is witing for that one! xD Eyes Like Stars was so good, I wonder how this one will be...

I have yet to read ELS. But I will soon! I guess it's a good thing that I haven't read this JUST yet because if I love the first book, then I won't have to wait too long for the sequel right? :D

Lol, yes, that whole "dangerous/mysterious/sexy bad boy" plot is overdone... but I'm always willing to give the book in question a chance to impress me, you know? :) I really hope that it turns out to be a great story...just so it can back up that gorgeous cover...

Taschima- Do we really have any doubt that this one will be fanulous too? I heart her. And she's really funny on Twitter.

Pirate- I'm with you on wanting a great cover to equal a great book. I am a shallow reader :)

Sarah- Thank you!
