The City of Stardust

We rated this book:


Maryanne Everyly walked into the night and vanished. She left to save her family, but in doing so, she left a daughter who may never understand. Violet Everly made a home with her uncle and spent her life reading stories about magical places. Until those magical places became real and she finds out her family is cursed to lose someone from every generation. It’s up to her to break the curse, save her mother and possibly find the key that leads to a city made of Stardust.

I always talk about characters, and everyone is City of Stardust is unique in appearance, personality and wants, leading to a wonderful cast to read about. Maryanne is an important part of the story, even as little as she appears; I found that I would love to read a story from her point-of-view after she left Violet. I think my favorite bit is that the story isn’t about the city; it’s about the search. It takes place in a world not so different then our own, only with a little magic, and Violet spends the whole book searching for that magic.
