The new installment in the critically acclaimed Stravaganza series transports readers to a world much like our own-but where magic and piracy come to life in the Italian town of Classe. The new Stravagante is Isabel, a visitor from our world who befriends Flavia, a successful female merchant of spices, silks, and tapestries. But Flavia soon finds herself an outcast and a pirate, while Isabel learns that Classe is under threat of attack by the fierce Gate people. What can she do to help save the city?

Fans of fantasy and historical fiction alike who have flocked to the Stravaganza series will welcome this action-packed adventure, which can be read alone or as a companion to the previous novels.

Look out for the other books in this series: City of Masks, City of Stars, City of Flowers, City of Secrets, and City of Swords-out next year!
