The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern

The magical new novel from the bestselling author of The Night Circus. Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a strange book hidden in the library stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues a bee, a key and a sword that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to a subterranean library, hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly-soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose in both the mysterious book and in his own life.

I picked up this ARC at the conference last week and my husband said, “Where did you get this?! Never mind, I think librarians are just mafia with a printing press.”

I can‘t believe Netgalley actually sent it. Every fantasy reader wants this and it‘s been eight years since The Night Circus. #fantasy #arc #coupdetat

Book_ish I was sooooooo tempted to request an ARC of this book but I want to curl up in my most comfortable chair with a hard copy so badly I decided against it. Not sure if that was the right decision. 6d

I‘m one of those people who has thousands of emails in my inbox. I wish it weren‘t true but, hey. #thisiswhoiam I try not to sign-up for new stuff without careful consideration, so as not to exacerbate the problem, but this didn‘t need careful consideration. SOLD.

Forgot to post about this book. It has been a long time since her last book The Night Circus, which is still one of my all-time favorite books. I was so worried this one would never meet my expectations. It not only met them, but exceeded them far beyond what I could have dreamed. I had to force myself to slow down reading it so I could savor every moment. I LOVED THIS BOOK! I won't say more because I don't want to even give a hint of spoilers.

I got my hands on an ARC of this beauty... I‘m a little terrified to read it because I love ‘The Night Circus‘ so much... but that‘s not stopping me from dropping everything to read it immediately.

I spent most of today in our new hammock (courtesy of @RavenRenegade ) completely lost in Erin Morgenstern‘s masterful new novel. I‘ve been so nervous to read it, in case it didn‘t live up to The Night Circus, but oh my. This book. 🖤🐝🗝🗡🖤

Cinfhen Cool!!! Didn‘t know she had a new book coming out 4mo
PatriciaU I admit, I am conflicted. I'm finding the alternating between the fairytales and the narrative a little disruptive. 3mo

Night Circus is my favorite book (I literally have the tattoo to prove it), and while I would have been content if Morgenstern never published another book again, I am THRILLED she wrote another novel and that I get to pre-read it (and hopefully get a physical copy at #Bookexpo)!!

Here‘s to friends, the key ingredient of life. Friends who believe in you, friends who know you can make it, even if you don‘t. Friends who let you crash when you‘re in town, friends you care about even though you‘ve only known them from the internet. Friends who make you laugh, friends who let you cry, and friends who know just what piece of magic to send you to restart the pilot light in your bookish heart. I love you all. 🖤🐝🔥
