City of Flowers (Stravaganza #3)

Sky stepped out into the sunshine, blinking, still holding the bottle, and a black man, robed like the others, took him by the arm and whispered, 'God be praised, it has found you!' Everything changes for Sky when he finds a perfume bottle that whiskes him away to the city of Giglia, an ancient city similar to Florence. This may be the beautiful City of Flowers, but things Sky stepped out into the sunshine, blinking, still holding the bottle, and a black man, robed like the others, took hi...

    This was the hardest Stravaganza book to get through - and not because of its length. There was just something about Sky - perhaps it was mainly in the name - that I just did not like, and out of the three family situations so far presented, I found his to be the least interesting and ...

    The Stravanganza series never disappoints me. I have this annoying knack to take a long time before I read the next one in the series, usually at least 6 months or even one or two years. And everytime I return to the series and venture back into Renaissance Taila, the world welcomes me...

    third installment in the series, and you do notice it. The plotlines grow a bit thin, and the characters grow a bit rigid. The newly introduced characters are, to me, not as likeable as the previous ones. I had a few annoyances throughout the book: - people don't seem to change mu...

    My least favorite from the first trilogy. It felt as if too many events were crammed into one book. However, it was still a great read. Love the new characters and the villains were fleshed out here and there. However, it feels as if some parts of the book could have ended better, but ...

    Wederom stravageren we naar Giglia. Deze keer is Sky de hoofdpersoon. Sky is de zoon van een moeder met ME en dus veel van de taken komen op hem neer. Sky is het resultaat van een one night stand met worrior een beroemde muziekant. Alleen moeder heeft contact met deze man. Sky heeft no...

    Não me convenceu. Não li o primeiro ou o segundo, e já nem me lembro como este livro me chegou às mãos - penso que foi num passatempo - mas no início deste terceiro livro depreende-se muito bem o que aconteceu nos outros dois. Porém, tal como disse, não me convenceu, a históri...

    Mooi verhaal, goede personages en zeker spannend. Het zou alleen handig zijn geweest als de lijst met personages voorin had gezeten. Een goed einde van een trilogie die uiteindelijk geen trilogie bleef. ...

    I would recommend Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to someone who likes fantasy. Personally this book and series is my favorite because the of the adventures and journeys it takes you on. The series is a long and carried out plot all solved in the end but each book has its place...

    Sky n?a pas une vie facile, entre un père qu?il n?a jamais connu et une mère célibataire et malade dont il doit s?occuper. Et pourtant, les choses se compliquent encore lorsqu?il trouve devant sa porte d?entrée un flacon de parfum qui le transporte à Giglia, une ville ...

    It started out really well. Sky reminded me a bit of Nick from Infinity, which in my book is always a good thing. I liked his relationship with "Nicholas Duke" and Georgia. I enjoyed his interaction with a different city. It is always good to experience 'old friends' in books as well, ...

    This book started off a little better, in my opinion, than the last book (city of stars). It might've been because I was a little more familiar with some of the characters than I had been while I read the previous book, or it was simply a better squeal. However, as I continued to read,...

    For some books, plot is everything. For others, it is the characters that truly shine. And for yet others, it is the setting that sets it apart. City of Flowers, as the title might suggest, is one such novel. Being whisked away into an Italian renaissance fantasy world is an experience...

    Really I'd give this book a 3.5 not a 4 but since they only have 1,2,3,4, and 5 stars I rounded up. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the others I loved City of Masks and City of Stars. I think as Mary Hoffman brings more stavaganti into the story it gets worse. I didn't like t...

    In some ways I want to give this book 5 stars - the story is entertaining, I really liked the characters (both the new and the old - I even liked Georgia and Nicholas more in this book than the one that was "theirs" so to speak) and the story flowed well both in modern England and Rena...

    This was quite good for the first half of the book. The world of 16th century 'Talia' (Italy in our world) was wonderfully evoked and there was all kinds of cool stuff going on - family feuds, murders, poisonings, etc. The characters from this world were interesting too, especially Giu...

    I loved this book! This series is just, amazing! And I'm freaking out because I put the fourth one on hold and it was due on the 16 but it's not ready yet! I digress. Anyways, there was some swearing which made me really sad. I thought: "Come on Mary Hoffman! You can do better than tha...

    Het (tot nu toe) spannendste deel van de trilogie. Een heerlijk verhaal wat zich dit maal afspeelt in Giglia en in een klooster. Deze hele andere omgeving brengt echt weer een nieuwe impuls voor het verhaal. De spanning stijgt langzaam aan, niet alleen in Talia tussen de stravaganti en...

    I cannot restrain myself from giving another Stravaganza book five stars - true there were some things which annoyed me, for example, Sky's story was never really developed during the novel. I was totally baffled by the confusing ages of some characters - at one point Beatrice says tha...

    OMG, I bought this off Amazon and the seller said it was in "good" condition... like 100 pages are LOOSE! And annoyingly I'd already given the seller 5-star feedback before I noticed this. Sure all the pages are there and in order, but that's hardly acceptable condition, let alone good...

    This was the hardest Stravaganza book to get through - and not because of its length. There was just something about Sky - perhaps it was mainly in the name - that I just did not like, and out of the three family situations so far presented, I found his to be the least interesting and ...

    The Stravanganza series never disappoints me. I have this annoying knack to take a long time before I read the next one in the series, usually at least 6 months or even one or two years. And everytime I return to the series and venture back into Renaissance Taila, the world welcomes me...

    third installment in the series, and you do notice it. The plotlines grow a bit thin, and the characters grow a bit rigid. The newly introduced characters are, to me, not as likeable as the previous ones. I had a few annoyances throughout the book: - people don't seem to change mu...

    This was a bit more challenging than the first two books. On one hand the growing relationship between Lucien and Arianna was so very interesting, not to mention everything connected to Georgia and Nick (those two are my favorite!). So I liked that tension and suspension but then on th...

    And this is where the Stavaganza series starts to wane a tiny bit? I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two, mainly because I felt that parts of the plot were just...loose. Perhaps it's because there are a couple of threads that Hoffman plans to take up in previous books. And ...

    Once again, I'm going to say that I liked the first one best in this series. I almost wish that the author had kept it at one book and not made it into a series...I just don't like it too much anymore, unfortunately. They're definitely interesting, but I haven't enjoyed any of these as...

    My least favorite from the first trilogy. It felt as if too many events were crammed into one book. However, it was still a great read. Love the new characters and the villains were fleshed out here and there. However, it feels as if some parts of the book could have ended better, but ...

    Wederom stravageren we naar Giglia. Deze keer is Sky de hoofdpersoon. Sky is de zoon van een moeder met ME en dus veel van de taken komen op hem neer. Sky is het resultaat van een one night stand met worrior een beroemde muziekant. Alleen moeder heeft contact met deze man. Sky heeft no...

    Não me convenceu. Não li o primeiro ou o segundo, e já nem me lembro como este livro me chegou às mãos - penso que foi num passatempo - mas no início deste terceiro livro depreende-se muito bem o que aconteceu nos outros dois. Porém, tal como disse, não me convenceu, a históri...

    Mooi verhaal, goede personages en zeker spannend. Het zou alleen handig zijn geweest als de lijst met personages voorin had gezeten. Een goed einde van een trilogie die uiteindelijk geen trilogie bleef. ...

    Sky n?a pas une vie facile, entre un père qu?il n?a jamais connu et une mère célibataire et malade dont il doit s?occuper. Et pourtant, les choses se compliquent encore lorsqu?il trouve devant sa porte d?entrée un flacon de parfum qui le transporte à Giglia, une ville ...

    It started out really well. Sky reminded me a bit of Nick from Infinity, which in my book is always a good thing. I liked his relationship with "Nicholas Duke" and Georgia. I enjoyed his interaction with a different city. It is always good to experience 'old friends' in books as well, ...

    This book started off a little better, in my opinion, than the last book (city of stars). It might've been because I was a little more familiar with some of the characters than I had been while I read the previous book, or it was simply a better squeal. However, as I continued to read,...

    For some books, plot is everything. For others, it is the characters that truly shine. And for yet others, it is the setting that sets it apart. City of Flowers, as the title might suggest, is one such novel. Being whisked away into an Italian renaissance fantasy world is an experience...

    Really I'd give this book a 3.5 not a 4 but since they only have 1,2,3,4, and 5 stars I rounded up. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the others I loved City of Masks and City of Stars. I think as Mary Hoffman brings more stavaganti into the story it gets worse. I didn't like t...

    In some ways I want to give this book 5 stars - the story is entertaining, I really liked the characters (both the new and the old - I even liked Georgia and Nicholas more in this book than the one that was "theirs" so to speak) and the story flowed well both in modern England and Rena...

    This was quite good for the first half of the book. The world of 16th century 'Talia' (Italy in our world) was wonderfully evoked and there was all kinds of cool stuff going on - family feuds, murders, poisonings, etc. The characters from this world were interesting too, especially Giu...

    I loved this book! This series is just, amazing! And I'm freaking out because I put the fourth one on hold and it was due on the 16 but it's not ready yet! I digress. Anyways, there was some swearing which made me really sad. I thought: "Come on Mary Hoffman! You can do better than tha...

    Het (tot nu toe) spannendste deel van de trilogie. Een heerlijk verhaal wat zich dit maal afspeelt in Giglia en in een klooster. Deze hele andere omgeving brengt echt weer een nieuwe impuls voor het verhaal. De spanning stijgt langzaam aan, niet alleen in Talia tussen de stravaganti en...

    I cannot restrain myself from giving another Stravaganza book five stars - true there were some things which annoyed me, for example, Sky's story was never really developed during the novel. I was totally baffled by the confusing ages of some characters - at one point Beatrice says tha...

    My least favorite from the first trilogy. It felt as if too many events were crammed into one book. However, it was still a great read. Love the new characters and the villains were fleshed out here and there. However, it feels as if some parts of the book could have ended better, but ...

    It started out really well. Sky reminded me a bit of Nick from Infinity, which in my book is always a good thing. I liked his relationship with "Nicholas Duke" and Georgia. I enjoyed his interaction with a different city. It is always good to experience 'old friends' in books as well, ...

    This book started off a little better, in my opinion, than the last book (city of stars). It might've been because I was a little more familiar with some of the characters than I had been while I read the previous book, or it was simply a better squeal. However, as I continued to read,...

    For some books, plot is everything. For others, it is the characters that truly shine. And for yet others, it is the setting that sets it apart. City of Flowers, as the title might suggest, is one such novel. Being whisked away into an Italian renaissance fantasy world is an experience...

    Really I'd give this book a 3.5 not a 4 but since they only have 1,2,3,4, and 5 stars I rounded up. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the others I loved City of Masks and City of Stars. I think as Mary Hoffman brings more stavaganti into the story it gets worse. I didn't like t...

    In some ways I want to give this book 5 stars - the story is entertaining, I really liked the characters (both the new and the old - I even liked Georgia and Nicholas more in this book than the one that was "theirs" so to speak) and the story flowed well both in modern England and Rena...

    This was quite good for the first half of the book. The world of 16th century 'Talia' (Italy in our world) was wonderfully evoked and there was all kinds of cool stuff going on - family feuds, murders, poisonings, etc. The characters from this world were interesting too, especially Giu...

    I loved this book! This series is just, amazing! And I'm freaking out because I put the fourth one on hold and it was due on the 16 but it's not ready yet! I digress. Anyways, there was some swearing which made me really sad. I thought: "Come on Mary Hoffman! You can do better than tha...

    Het (tot nu toe) spannendste deel van de trilogie. Een heerlijk verhaal wat zich dit maal afspeelt in Giglia en in een klooster. Deze hele andere omgeving brengt echt weer een nieuwe impuls voor het verhaal. De spanning stijgt langzaam aan, niet alleen in Talia tussen de stravaganti en...

    I cannot restrain myself from giving another Stravaganza book five stars - true there were some things which annoyed me, for example, Sky's story was never really developed during the novel. I was totally baffled by the confusing ages of some characters - at one point Beatrice says tha...

    OMG, I bought this off Amazon and the seller said it was in "good" condition... like 100 pages are LOOSE! And annoyingly I'd already given the seller 5-star feedback before I noticed this. Sure all the pages are there and in order, but that's hardly acceptable condition, let alone good...

    Sky finds a perfume bottle that takes him to Giglia, the city of the Di Chimici family. There are four weddings coming up and threats from everywhere to turn the big day in a big disaster. Every stravaganti has its own purpose to fulfill and it?s just a matter of time until Sky finds...

    This was the hardest Stravaganza book to get through - and not because of its length. There was just something about Sky - perhaps it was mainly in the name - that I just did not like, and out of the three family situations so far presented, I found his to be the least interesting and ...

    I would recommend Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to someone who likes fantasy. Personally this book and series is my favorite because the of the adventures and journeys it takes you on. The series is a long and carried out plot all solved in the end but each book has its place...

    Sky n?a pas une vie facile, entre un père qu?il n?a jamais connu et une mère célibataire et malade dont il doit s?occuper. Et pourtant, les choses se compliquent encore lorsqu?il trouve devant sa porte d?entrée un flacon de parfum qui le transporte à Giglia, une ville ...

    It started out really well. Sky reminded me a bit of Nick from Infinity, which in my book is always a good thing. I liked his relationship with "Nicholas Duke" and Georgia. I enjoyed his interaction with a different city. It is always good to experience 'old friends' in books as well, ...

    This book started off a little better, in my opinion, than the last book (city of stars). It might've been because I was a little more familiar with some of the characters than I had been while I read the previous book, or it was simply a better squeal. However, as I continued to read,...

    For some books, plot is everything. For others, it is the characters that truly shine. And for yet others, it is the setting that sets it apart. City of Flowers, as the title might suggest, is one such novel. Being whisked away into an Italian renaissance fantasy world is an experience...

    Really I'd give this book a 3.5 not a 4 but since they only have 1,2,3,4, and 5 stars I rounded up. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the others I loved City of Masks and City of Stars. I think as Mary Hoffman brings more stavaganti into the story it gets worse. I didn't like t...

    In some ways I want to give this book 5 stars - the story is entertaining, I really liked the characters (both the new and the old - I even liked Georgia and Nicholas more in this book than the one that was "theirs" so to speak) and the story flowed well both in modern England and Rena...

    This was quite good for the first half of the book. The world of 16th century 'Talia' (Italy in our world) was wonderfully evoked and there was all kinds of cool stuff going on - family feuds, murders, poisonings, etc. The characters from this world were interesting too, especially Giu...

    I loved this book! This series is just, amazing! And I'm freaking out because I put the fourth one on hold and it was due on the 16 but it's not ready yet! I digress. Anyways, there was some swearing which made me really sad. I thought: "Come on Mary Hoffman! You can do better than tha...

    Het (tot nu toe) spannendste deel van de trilogie. Een heerlijk verhaal wat zich dit maal afspeelt in Giglia en in een klooster. Deze hele andere omgeving brengt echt weer een nieuwe impuls voor het verhaal. De spanning stijgt langzaam aan, niet alleen in Talia tussen de stravaganti en...
