What you need to know before your trail

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.

You are invited to join Zachary on the starless sea: the home of storytellers, story-lovers and those who will protect our stories at all costs.

Travel Guide

Travel along the Starless Sea BookTrail Style

The only setting really is the world of book, fables, tales and secret books in walks which lead to long corridors filled with books.

The city of New York is magically woven into the story. There’s a VERY exciting place within Central Park for book lovers. Wait until you visit NEW YORK CITY LIBRARY! We all know it’s magical, but wait until you visit it with The Starless Sea!

“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.”

This is a world of secret doors drawn onto walls, of magical portals into book-filled walls, of bookish adventures, masquerade parties and secret passageways. Wait until you get to the Starless Sea.Magical and full of books is the only way to describe it.

Oh and that magical line: “Having a physical reaction to a lack of book is not unusual.”
