Cover Fragment: So Silver Bright

If you've followed me long enough, you will know that I'm a HUGE fan of Lisa Mantchev and have been since she debuted with Eyes Like Stars.  Well, here we are 2 novels later and Lisa is about to release the final chapter in Bertie's story, So Silver Bright.

Last week Lisa posted on her blog looking for bloggers that would help her reveal the cover for So Silver Bright.  I am so honored to have been chosen, along with some other awesome bloggers, to share fragments of the cover with you all week and then reveal the full cover on Friday.  So, without further adieu, here is a little piece of the cover.

Bertie thinks her quest is almost done. With the help of Ariel and the rest of her friends, she has managed to find her father and rescue the kidnapped pirate, Nate, from Sedna the sea goddess. Now all she has to do is reunite her father, The Scrimshander, with her mother, Ophelia, and she will finally have a true family of her own.  However, things are never easy for Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. Her father has vanished, Sedna is out for revenge, her own actions have trapped the Theatre Illuminata, the only home she’s ever known, into a strange kind of limbo, and the stress of her in-between state is tearing apart the fragile threads of her mother’s sanity. Bertie’s best hope for salvaging the situation may lie in the summons by Her Gracious Majesty, Queen of the Distant Castle and hope of winning the magical boon given to the most pleasing performance. Bertie is caught between her growing responsibilities to home and family and the dream of flying free, just as her heart is torn between her two loves, Ariel and Nate. With so many forces pulling on her, how will Bertie be able to choose which wish to make come true?

It's just full of "awesomesauce!"  Remember, this is only a fragment of the cover...wait until Friday to see it all revealed.  You will love it, I'm sure.  The covers for Lisa's books have gotten more beautiful with each one and this one did not disappoint me.
