A brand new space opera on an epic scale from the New York Times bestselling author of a beloved YA fantasy series.
It was supposed to be a routine research mission on an uncolonized planet. But when xenobiologist Kira Navárez finds an alien relic beneath the surface of the world, the outcome transforms her forever and will alter the course of human history.
Her journey to discover the truth about the alien civilization will thrust her into the wonders and nightmares of first contact, epic space battles for the fate of humankind, and the farthest reaches of the galaxy.
Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday! This week I wanted to talk about a book I am really excited for, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini. Christopher Paolini is the author of The Inheritance Cycle, a series which I read multiple times growing up. Along with the Garth Nix’s Abhorsen series, Eragon was probably one of the reasons I got into fantasy books as a child and it led me to read things like Lord of the Rings. I read The Fork, The Witch and The Worm by Christopher Paolini at the end of last year and it was so nice being back in the world of Eragon and Saphira. When I heard Paolini was releasing a completely new book that would be a space opera, I was completely sold. On reading the blurb I was so intrigued and it has the most stunning cover. I’ve been lucky enough to receive an ARC of this and it’s absolutely huge, but I cant wait to dive in. To Sleep in a Sea of Stars sounds like it’s going to be a fast paced and exciting read and it’s definitely jumped to the top of my TBR pile. If you’re keen to read this one you don’t have too much longer to wait, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is publishing September 15th from Tor Books.
