In the Dragon’s Eye: Stars of Fortune

October 28, 2015 In the Dragon's Eye 5


In the Dragon’s Eye is where I share the books I’ve got my acquisitive eye on: the ones I’m really excited about and hope to read and perhaps add to the hoard.  I also link to “Waiting On” Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the SpineCover links take you to Goodreads; all blurbs are also from Goodreads.


Stars of Fortune (Nora Roberts)

The Guardians #1
Berkley: Trade, Nov. 3, 2015

To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…

Sasha Riggs is a reclusive artist, haunted by dreams and nightmares that she turns into extraordinary paintings. Her visions lead her to the Greek island of Corfu, where five others have been lured to seek the fire star. Sasha recognizes them, because she has drawn them: a magician, an archaeologist, a wanderer, a fighter, a loner. All on a quest. All with secrets.

Sasha is the one who holds them together—the seer. And in the magician, Bran Killian, she sees a man of immense power and compassion. As Sasha struggles with her rare ability, Bran is there to support her, challenge her, and believe in her.

But Sasha and Bran are just two of the six. And they all must all work together as a team to find the fire star in a cradle of land beneath the sea. Over their every attempt at trust, unity, and love, a dark threat looms. And it seeks to corrupt everything that stands in its way of possessing the stars…

Why I want to read it:
  1. I really loved Nora Robert’s Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy, and this looks like it might have a similar feel.
  2. I’m oddly drawn to books that take place on Corfu. (Thank you, Mary Stewart!)

      I’ve been interested in the Greek islands since reading Mary Stewart in my teens; she set several books there. I’ve got Star of Fortune on hold at the library, or rather, I’m high on the list for it once they get a copy.
