The Starless Crown

James Rollins can put down some images that cause you to slink down and try your best to hide and not be noticed. This is the first book in a new series adventure of hidden secrets and ruthless control.

This is a complex tale with the introduction to, and eventual meeting up of a whole cast of characters tasked to save the world.

As with any epic, this is a long book. It does great at setting up this new universe. I will say that towards the last 10% of the book, I kept thinking “Really? ANOTHER battle? ANOTHER twist?? I guess for me I was ready to just wrap this one up and go on to book 2. This is a series I will look for the next book in, just know that in this one – one battle leads to another and another and another until your adrenaline is spent and all you want is a nap. Not saying it’s not a good story – just … you get it.

I will definitely be recommending this novel, and rate it a 3.5 out of 5 stars – and I am excited for the next installment! Look for this first novel on its Jan 4, 2022 publication date at a retailer near you!

Thank you to #NetGalley, the publisher, and the author James Rollins for providing me with an electronic arc in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
