Eyes Like Stars and Perchance to Dream, the first two books in Lisa Mantchev’s Théâtre Illuminata trilogy. I’ve still to get the last of the books - So Silver Bright - but I really do enjoy these two books. Eye Like Stars still wins as my favourite ever cover, and the ONLY time I have bought a book purely because I was entranced by the cover alone.
I’d say these books are good if you are into theatre in general. The lead character is engaging, and the storyline is one of those ones that… Okay, if I said in places the ideas behind it are so simple it makes you facepalm with “OF COURSE”, would you get what I mean?
They’re a fun read, though, and I’d really recommend them.
