This is the kind of book which sweeps you up and makes you live in the story for days after you read it. After the first two books in the series it is no disappointment. It's exactly what teenagers need!

This book is superbly written. I have read alot of books but this one is the best. The book is about Sky, a boy whose dad is famous and whose mom is very ill. He then is sent to the world of Taila, the counter part of Italy. There he makes many new friends. In our world he also makes friends with past Stravaganti the people who move between worlds. This book also finished nicely- all the loose ends of the last two books are tied, and it has all the old main characters in it.

This book is about Sky Meadows, who becomes a Stravagante, and gets to meet all our favorite characters from the previous books. The DiChimici and Nuccio are still at war with each other, but this time, the dispute is so violent, there is actually blood shed! I hate cliff hangers, though, and this ending certainly has kept me anxiously awaiting the next book...

I loved this book. It was by far the best in the series. But I absolutely hate the character Georgia, so this was obviously much better in my opinion than the last one. But anyway, this book was a tad bit confusing, with all the jumps between Sky, Georgia, Luciano, and the diChimicis, but I HEART these books!!!!!!!

I loved this book! the series is really amazing, i especially liked that this book included the other characters we liked in the 1st and 2nd book.This book is about Sky a teen who is overwhelmed with his life and needs a break.Relif comes in the form of a perfume bottle.From then on the action and mystery unfold to makethe greatest Stravaganza yet!!!!

It was a well written book and a good sequel to the first to books. I am a bit disappointed with the ending because I believe *some* characters have now faded out of the series. Arianna's and Luciano's roles are very satisfying and we are introduced to several new staravante. All in all a good book! visit the Stravaganza website: www.stravaganza.co.uk
