When I finish a really good book, I'm left with an utterly soul crushing bittersweet feeling. I feel great because, you know, it was a great book! Brilliant character development and an awesome plot and amazing characters and everything that makes me happy. But then I realize that the stories of the characters are over, and that I won't be able to read about them anymore - well, anything new about them - and I get sad. This is how I felt at the end of So Silver Bright. I read the first book in the series in 2009, back where my reviews were barely a paragraph long and I had no idea what I was doing. I've become so much picker since then about what I read, and yet this series is still utterly fantastic. The characters are stellar, the plot keeps me hanging on the edge of my seat, and I'd give anything to live in a world where word-magic is real. I could go about a lot of things in this book. I'd ramble about the plot, but I want you to discover the twists and turns for yourself. I'd rave about the world, but I've already given you a tidbit about word-magic, so I'll leave the rest of the wonders of the world up to you, the reader, who has yet to discover it. But I will give you some reasons I love the characters. Let's start with one important thing: this series has a love triangle, and I love it. (Well, I love Ariel, and Nate's cool, I guess.) It's handled so bloody brilliantly, and the ending to it is so perfectly poignant and sweet and - just - gah. I don't want to spoil it for you, but I was both really happy and mildly depressed. Kind of like how Bertie felt, I imagine. And Bertie! Oh, Bertie, who loves two men equally; Bertie, who within the first ten pages of the book, reiterates how much she hates the stereotypical damsel-in-distress and refuses to be coddled and protected from every little thing just because the men love her. Bertie, who kicks ass and takes titlesnames. Bertie, who protects her friends with everything she has in her. And her friends! I could go on about all of them for paragraphs, but I'll stick to the fairies, and I'll just say this: they give me food lust. ALL the food lust.

This book was great! The imaginative qualities and the way everythinng was explained made this book the icong on the cake for the series. Lisa Manchev had me laughing and crying. Make sure to read "Eyes Like Stars" followed by "Perchance To Dream" BEFORE you read this book. Everything will be better explained if you read the other books first.

Lisa Mantchev does an amazing job with this series! Her chracters are realistic and overall amazing. On top of this, the book has amazing artwork to go with an awesome book.

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, the faeries continue to be delightful, and the dialogue in the novel is witty and fun as ever. On the other hand, the story was all over the place. I had a really difficult time following the plot, and figuring out exactly what Bertie was trying to do in this one. There were so many loose ends that it seems like the author was trying to tidy up, that she kept switching directions and it got confusing at times. All and all, this was delightful to read, but I had a hard time focusing. It does not rate is high is the previous two books in the trilogy, but I'm glad I finished it. Honestly? The faeries themselves made the read worthwhile! :-) Few books make me laugh as often as this trilogy has!

The last review I posted sounded really unintelligent, so i just want to apologize for that, and I wanted to say that this is an amazing book and I loved every second if it! If you havent done so already you need to read Eyes Like Stars and Perchance to Dream! If you dont, this book may not make very much sense, because Lisa Manchez doesnt reiterate what happens in the first two books very much.

you definitely have to read this book if you've read the other two! although i did have problems following the story in Perchance to Dream, i had no problems while reading So Silver Bright. this last installment in the Theatre Illuminata Series was a perfect ending... when I finished the book, I was surprised that I missed Bertie and Nate and the rest of the cast so much. I started this book feeling that I had to finish this series- it was a simple trilogy, after all. i had to read the last book. however, i found myself late at night devouring this book bit by bit. all of Bertie's questions were answered and i was so delighted with the outcome of So Silver Bright! Bertie grew up a lot in the last book in this series... i was so proud of her! i was also very happy with her decision between Nate and Ariel... this book was awesome! you really should read this book if you've read Eyes Like Stars and Perchance to Dream- and if you haven't? get your hands on these books now! i've been thinking about rereading the first two books because i didn't understand them very well... maybe because i was younger reading them? i don't know. but trust me, So Silver Bright blared through my mind... it was so magical! goodbye Bertie & Company, i'll miss you dearly!

Bertie is not ready to fight Sedna again, not so soon, and when an invitation to attend a party in the Royal Castle arrives she and her company quickly decide to attend. They might not be so thrill about meeting the Queen (from whom they've heard a lot of things... and not all of them so good) but they are eager to lose Sedna. After a few disappears they finally arrive to the castle where they perform for the Queen in exchange of a wish: Bertie can get what her heart desires most. And she surely knows what she wants: to reunite her family. But not even the Queen's power can grant her that wish... But she can, at least, offer her all the missing pieces of her parent's story. And without knowing what's coming her way Bertie begins a travel through time to discover all the secrets behind the masks... all the plots that had changed her life and threatens her happiness. And, at some point, a deal made with a herb-seller to ensure protection is going to change Bertie's future even if she doesn't know it. Is she ready to face what is coming for her? Is the Théâtre ready for the final battle? Personal opinion: I can say a lot of things about this book, about how it made me feel, how it made me smile and how it made my cry but all the words would not be enough to summon and explain how much I enjoy it and how sad I am now that I've finished this series. First of all, I don't know if you have been between two loves and know, for sure, that you could be very happy with both guys... but we can't have both of them, right? Bertie can't do that either and it breaks her heart every time she thinks about choosing one of them. At the end she chooses one, even if she doesn't know it. And I cried, I did. What can I say? I was cheering for both of them because the way they love her is just so sweet and tender... So, if you are going to pick up this series and read the three books make sure to have a box of tissues next to you. Despite the bittersweet ending the book was amazing, all the questions were answered and everything had an explanation. The ending came fast with a final twist that knocked my world and I'm sure Bertie's too. And, as always, Lisa Mantchev's writing was exquisite and marvelous... a good plot needs a good writer, and a good heroine needs a good storyteller, Lisa was both.

Lisa is an absolute genius! This whole series is a deffinate must read. Bertie will make you proud to be a woman with her strong and daring personality while Nate and Ariel will make you fall in love. The characters are so colorful and multi-dimensional that it is hard not to fall into the story yourself.
