Having escaped malicious sea goddess Sedna, 17-year-old Mistress of Revels Bertie Shakespeare Smith is hoping to finally bring together her long-separated family. Meanwhile, Sedna is still in pursuit, and Bertie remains torn between air spirit Ariel and pirate Nate. Bertie is also summoned to the Distant Castle to perform for the queen, whose wish-granting power may fulfill her dreams. Ultimately Bertie must travel back in time, a journey that brings unexpected challenges, along with revelations, resolutions, and new opportunities. This magic-infused trilogy finale presumes knowledge of previous Théâtre Illuminata titles, and it will draw returning readers who’ve anticipated Bertie’s continued adventures and quest for self-discovery.
