The Starless Sea is Erin Morgenstern’s highly anticipated latest novel, and it is one that is going to blow you away. Fans of The Night Circus are not going to want to miss out on this one, as Morgenstern has proved that her latest novel was well worth the long wait.
The Night Circus is a complex, deeply moving, and beautiful novel. It shows how far an intricate series of plots can go, and how far Morgenstern has come as a writer.
A tale within a tale, with other tales revolving around them. That is what The Starless Sea felt like. It’s a series of stories, but they’re all related to one another – though this might not always be clear at first sight.
Zachary Ezra Rawlins is the son of a fortune-teller. He didn’t open his door when he first had the opportunity, but you better believe he isn’t going to miss out the second time around. He’s a game design major, but one who is exceptionally fond of books.
And it’s a book that brought him the biggest mystery of all. Or perhaps we should say, it brought him his biggest obsession. For how can one ever get over a book, when they find themselves tucked neatly within the pages?
“The boy is the son of the fortune-teller. He has reached an age that brings an uncertainty as to whether this is something to be proud of, or even a detail to be divulged, but it remains true.”
