So Silver Bright Cover Fragment + Contest

The third book in Lisa Mantchev’s Théâtre Illuminata series, So Silver Bright releases this September. I was so excited when I was contacted to be a part of Lisa’s cover reveal! All week there are fragments of the cover being posted on blogs, leading to the big reveal on Friday. Here is today’s fragment:

So Silver Bright
by Lisa Mantchev
Publication date: September 13, 2011

Bertie thinks her quest is almost done. With the help of Ariel and the rest of her friends, she has managed to find her father and rescue the kidnapped pirate, Nate, from Sedna the sea goddess. Now all she has to do is reunite her father, The Scrimshander, with her mother, Ophelia, and she will finally have a true family of her own. However, things are never easy for Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. Her father has vanished, Sedna is out for revenge, her own actions have trapped the Theatre Illuminata, the only home she’s ever known, into a strange kind of limbo, and the stress of her in-between state is tearing apart the fragile threads of her mother’s sanity.

Bertie’s best hope for salvaging the situation may lie in the summons by Her Gracious Majesty, Queen of the Distant Castle and hope of winning the magical boon given to the most pleasing performance. Bertie is caught between her growing responsibilities to home and family and the dream of flying free, just as her heart is torn between her two loves, Ariel and Nate. With so many forces pulling on her, how will Bertie be able to choose which wish to make come true?


Macmillan has graciously donated one signed copy of the first book in the trilogy, Eyes Like Stars.

  1. by the way I am pretty sure the fragments aren’t in proportion so they wont fit perfectly unless you piece it together in your mind

  2. Oooh! I’ve been seeing all of these outtakes from the new cover and they have all been beautiful so far (: I love all of the covers in this series!

    Okay, does High School Musical count as my favorite musical? Haha, I’m a HUGE Disney freak xD If it doesn’t, then my fave play would be Wicked. Thanks a ton for the giveaway!


  3. I have to say, when my highschool performed A Midsummer Nights Dream (The G-rated, Abridged Version) it was pretty amazing. Especially, because (after stalking the director) I got to be Puck. As far as professional plays/musicals Beauty and the Beast will have to duke it out with Wicked.
