Bertie: Our heroine
Welcome to the theater Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Theatre by The Book-- an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of tem, but they are her family...and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
Lisa Mantehev has written a debut novel that is dramatic, romantic, and witty, with an irrestiable and irreverent cast of chracters who are sure to enchant the audience.
This story was a little confusing at the beginning, and was hard to understand. I thought that Bertie ended up with the wrong guy, and abandened the right guy, which ruined my "Happily Ever After" I had in plan for this book. The characters were amazing, the suspense was thrilling, and the plot was...interesting. Not as good as I hoped it would have been.
