Synopses & Reviews
An incredible debut novel, with a concept to make any theater geek's heart beat faster.
Reviews for the print edition of Eyes Like Stars:
Filled with literary whimsy and intrigue, this story brings the magic of the stage to life with great delight. The Theatre is a fascinatingly strong setting, populated with a rich variety of characters and plenty of potential... Mantchev can take bow; her first novel, Book 1 of the Theatre Illuminata Trilogy, is a crowd pleaser.
