Product description

Review

The Starless Sea rejects older stories: it makes its own. Its magic is based in the New York Public Library, in glittering hotels, and the beautiful blatant kitsch of a professional fortune teller’s house. Rather than a traditional fantasy novel, this is an artificial myth in its own right, soldered together from the girders of skyscrapers… the novel’s scope and ambition are undeniable -- Natasha Pulley, Guardian

Erin Morgenstern’s fiction radiates with the excitement of someone discovering a magical world within the pages of a book. The Starless Sea…[is an] enchanting read… an ode to stories and storytelling itself, and the joy of reading -- Martin Chilton, Independent

A unique, mind-boggling fantasy -- Kate Saunders, The Times

Enchanting… [The Starless Sea] vividly detailed worlds of lost libraries, elegant ballrooms and subterranean seas. Myths and fairytales entwine… The writing is whimsically gorgeous. On every page there’s an image to savour… [a] spellbinding book -- Eithne Farry, Sunday Express

Enchanting...Myths and fairytales entwine with Zachary's quest to discover his life's purpose. Spellbinding., Daily Mirror
