About the Event

The Starless Sea is the magical new novel from the bestselling author of The Night Circus.

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.

"a high-stakes fantasy, a charming tribute to the art of storytelling and a loose collection of the average millennial’s angsty thoughts"
Literary Review
"The eagerly awaited follow-up to her bestselling, magical 2011 debut The Night Circus, which was translated into 37 languages"
The Bookseller
"A reader might find this deliberate vagueness either uplifting or maddening, but the novel’s scope and ambition are undeniable."
The Guardian
"Erin Morgenstern’s starry debut, The Night Circus, proves a hard act to follow"
