The Starless Sea: A Novel
Zachary Ezra Rawlins, a graduate student in Vermont, discovers a mysterious book, turns the pages with tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes. Something strange appears: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this, Zachary tracks down a series of clues—a bee, a key, and a sword—leading him eventually to a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. This is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians, but lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. A mystery almost along the lines of science fiction, there is SO MUCH to find out through this story… Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary takes a trepid journey through this magical world, discovering his purpose.
