Mr B's review

The Starless Sea is the magical adventure of the year that you’ll never want to leave from the author of The Night Circus. In his university library, Zachary Ezra Rollins discovers an unmarked book telling the story of him…at a masquerade party in New York. The only logical step is to find this fictional party, meet a woman dressed as Max from Where the Wild Things Are, and descend into a secret underground library in order to protect Time and Fate’s stories. – Hannah at Mr. B’s


The spellbinding new novel from the Top Ten bestselling author of The Night Circus.

‘Radiates with the excitement of someone discovering a magical world within the pages of a book. An enchanting read… an ode to stories and storytelling itself, and the joy of reading’ Independent

Are you lost or are you exploring?

When Zachary Rawlins stumbles across a strange book hidden in his university library it leads him on a quest unlike any other. Its pages entrance him with their tales of lovelorn prisoners, lost cities and nameless acolytes, but they also contain something impossible: a recollection from his own childhood.

Determined to solve the puzzle of the book, Zachary follows the clues he finds on the cover – a bee, a key and a sword. They guide him to a masquerade ball, to a dangerous secret club, and finally through a magical doorway created by the fierce and mysterious Mirabel. This door leads to a subterranean labyrinth filled with stories, hidden far beneath the surface of the earth.

When the labyrinth is threatened, Zachary must race with Mirabel, and Dorian, a handsome barefoot man with shifting alliances, through its twisting tunnels and crowded ballrooms, searching for the end of his story.

You are invited to join Zachary on the starless sea: the home of storytellers, story-lovers and those who will protect our stories at all costs.
