STARS OF FORTUNE
BOOK ONE OF THE GUARDIANS TRILOGY
To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…
Sasha Riggs is a reclusive artist, haunted by dreams and nightmares that she turns into extraordinary paintings. Her visions lead her to the Greek island of Corfu, where five others have been lured to seek the fire star. Sasha recognizes them, because she has drawn them: a magician, an archaeologist, a wanderer, a fighter, a loner. All on a quest. All with secrets.
Sasha is the one who holds them together—the seer. And in the magician, Bran Killian, she sees a man of immense power and compassion. As Sasha struggles with her rare ability, Bran is there to support her, challenge her, and believe in her.
But Sasha and Bran are just two of the six. And they all must all work together as a team to find the fire star in a cradle of land beneath the sea. Over their every attempt at trust, unity, and love, a dark threat looms. And it seeks to corrupt everything that stands in its way of possessing the stars…
The last book I read by this author was in the Death series and I was not a fan of that book. So, you could say that I had my reservations about reading this book.
At first when I started reading this book I thought it was going to be a take on the Christmas story of the Three Wise Men. Yet, this book is not the story of the Three Wise Men.
This book was so much better than the last one. While I was not over the moon in love with this book, I did find this trilogy to be an good one. Even though I was introduced to all six of the characters the story really was focused on Sasha and Bran. Thus I felt the most connected to both of them. I felt the chemistry between them. The story overall was fine but it was in the last third of the story when something really happened and not just talking. So if the next book has more of what the last third of the book had then it will be a good one.
