“How are you feeling?” Zachary asks. “Like I’m losing my mind, but in a slow, achingly beautiful sort of way”. 🐝🔑⚔️ The Starless Sea left me speechless, a wonderfully poetic book that is devastating and soothing in equal parts.

This is the story of when Time fell in love with Fate.

The Starless Sea is a fantastical book that is an homage to storytelling, a warm gentle hug to readers, and the highest sign of reverence to world-building. It was written for those who seek solace in the pages of a good story, and now it might live forever, just because once it is told it can live within us and therefore be real.

“Be brave,” she says. “Be bold. Be loud. Never change for anyone but yourself. Any soul worth their star-stuff will take the whole package as is and however it grows. Don’t waste your time on anyone who doesn’t believe you when you tell them how you feel.”

Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont, and one day he finds a weird book in the library. While reading the enchanting Sweet Sorrows Zach has a wtf moment, because the story is about him. More precisely it is about something that happened to him when he was much younger.

The book is the call to action that propels Zachary to a bizarre adventure in search of the meaning of the book, a long-forgotten harbor on The Starless Sea, and the significance of the bees, sword, and key.

We meet the mysterious Dorian, the mystical Mirabel, the frightening Allegra Cavallo and the terrifying Owl King. All while jumping between Zach’s reality and the fables written in the many books he finds during his journey.

The Starless Sea has all the elements of a great epic tale, romance and drama, nostalgia and hopefulness, angst and happiness, dread and confusion, mysteries and scary monsters. Beautiful and terrifying beings, things that make great sense and things that will keep you wondering for a long time.

It was truly a gift to be able to read this.
And I’ll keep their stories with me forever.

“Strange, isn’t it? To love a book. When the words on the pages become so precious that they feel like part of your own history because they are. It’s nice to finally have someone read stories I know so intimately.”
