Publisher Description

THE TIKTOK SENSATION

Discover the enchanting, magical bestseller from the author of The Night Circus, now in a stunning new edition.


We are all stardust and stories...

When Zachary Rawlins stumbles across a mysterious book containing details from his own life among its pages, it leads him on a quest unlike any other.

Following the clues inside, he is guided to a masquerade ball, a dangerous secret club, and finally to an ancient library hidden far beneath the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians - it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes across time, and of stories whispered by the dead.

But when the library is threatened, Zachary must race through its twisting tunnels and sweetly soaked shores, searching for the end of his story.

The starless sea

This book is a weaving, shifting, entrancing, intriguing delight. I read it on kindle but had to buy the hardback because I know it’s a book I will read many times, and each time it will be just as magical.

Sadly disappointed

I love The Night Circus and so I was really excited to read this novel. Once again I was captured by the characters, the plot and the vivid descriptions. However, like other reviewers have noted, I felt that the book ran out of steam 3/4 of the way through. I put the novel aside for two weeks but just couldn’t get back into it. Eventually I read it all but, for me, it never recaptured that magic for me and limped to an unsatisfactory end. Maybe this was the intention of the author but for me it was a great concept that was sadly worn too thin, with the inclusion of far too many characters at the expense of the plot.

Long and disappointing

I loved the night circus and couldn’t wait to read this book but found it long and disappointing. It took effort to finish the book and I did read it to the end.
