The rhymes of Mother Goose meet A Wrinkle in Time in this sequel to A Sliver of Stardust, from Marissa Burt, the author of Storybound.
The Land of Nod used to be just a name in a nursery rhyme to Wren. But when she discovered the secret magic of stardust, she learned that some of those rhymes had secrets of their own—and the Land of Nod is real.
A few months ago, the evil Magician Boggen attempted to escape his exile on Nod and return to Earth. Wren stopped him, but Boggen is still out there. To save her world, Wren will travel farther than even she could have dreamed: to the heart of Nod itself, where she must defeat Boggen once and for all.
A fantastic adventure with a captivating world, inventive magic, and a dash of science, A Legend of Starfire is the perfect next read for fans of Madeleine L’Engle, John Stephens’s The Emerald Atlas, or Stefan Bachmann’s The Peculiar.

Fiddler Wren reunites with Jack and Simon as she launches into a new adventure in this sequel to A Sliver of Stardust. Stranded in Nod, Wren works to unite factions inside and outside the city against the magician Boggen. Burt's mash-up draws on elements of fantasy, science fiction, nursery rhymes, and steampunk. The plotting is messy, but the action is fast-paced. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
