An alliance embarks on a dangerous journey to uncover the secrets of the distant past and save their world in this captivating, deeply visionary adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling thriller-master James Rollins. A gifted student foretells an apocalypse. Her reward is a sentence of death. Fleeing into the unknown she is drawn into a team of outcasts: A broken soldier, who once again takes up the weapons hes forbidden to wield and carves a trail back home. A drunken prince, who steps out from his beloved brother's shadow and claims a purpose of his own. An imprisoned thief, who escapes the crushing dark and discovers a gleaming artifact - one that will ignite a power struggle across the globe. On the run, hunted by enemies old and new, they must learn to trust each other in order to survive in a world evolved in strange, beautiful, and deadly ways, and uncover ancient secrets that hold the key to their salvation. But with each passing moment, doom draws closer. WHO WILL CLAIM THE STARLESS CROWN?

Mehso-so

I just did NOT feel connected to the story or the characters. I thought it was a great premise and parts of it made me gasp or laugh but when it finished I wasn't aching to read the next installment.

I like Rollins' action adventure series and I've liked other fantasy series in the past ( i.e. LOTR, long before the movies 😉) but I'm struggling with this.

This is honestly not something I would normally read but my friend who works at the local bookstore put it in my hand and said trust me. All righty then. I admit I did set it a side a few times to read books I‘d preordered not because it wasn‘t good. This is a dark fantasy built around the premise the earth has stopped spinning. Yeah that. Great characters and storyline. And my friend, Chris didn‘t lead me astray! #readingchallenge2022

🎧 I‘ve only read Sigma Force so this was a surprise.

Can I call it a dark fantasy? The Earth has stopped spinning in a way that one half is always light, the other dark. The remains of humanity live in a reality that‘s harsh & unforgiving.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👇🏻

Twainy The story is a quest to save the Earth which will continue in book 2. There‘s 4 groups of people who have varying abilities & agendas, good & bad. Chased & chasing. They will all cross paths.

Strange monsters, alchemists, unique plant life, students, dangers, royalty, death, disgraced knight, torture, sentient giant bats & badass nuns. Spiders, big spiders, why?! LOL 👇🏻

Twainy This book is packed with a great story & the narrator is easy to listen to.

Compelling. I await book two! Thank you Macmillan Audio & NetGalley I really enjoyed this story!

Rollins foray into fantasy is a success—he deftly weaves 4 POVs into a compelling story that left me wanting to know what happens next. A thief, a prince, a knight, a novice and another (can‘t be specific to avoid spoilers) all have a role to play as a world inches ever closer to war. Our relationship to nature/wildlife plays an interesting role in the story. If you enjoy fantasy, this is one to check out. On sale 1/22.

Such a busy week I haven‘t had much time to read much less post anything on Litsy. That changes now as I settle in for the weekend with a 500+ page fantasy from Rollins (most well known for writing thrillers). I‘ve seen this book on a number of “most anticipated” lists for 2022 and a few chapters in, I can see why. It definitely has my attention!

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 349.

I‘ve been a fan of Rollins‘ writing for a long time and this action-packed re-entry to epic fantasy makes for a truly wonderful #audiobook experience! The characters all come to life and the magical creatures and twisting plot is breathlessly exciting! I loved Nyx - and all of her adopted brothers! I cried- there are some brutal surprises- but I also can‘t wait for the next installment! A great start to a new series! #AudioColoring

EvieBee Wow! 😍😍 1mo
TorieStorieS @EvieBee Thanks!! I used derwent inktense colored pencils and a water brush on this one! 1mo
EvieBee @TorieStorieS I have those but I haven‘t figured out how to use them correctly. 1mo
TorieStorieS @EvieBee What I do is color with them first, then take a water brush over it for blending colors together or to make them more vibrant! But I am sure there are good videos online! 1mo
