Publisher's Summary

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 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....

    "Amazing and fantastic."
    Would you listen to Stars of Fortune again? Why?

    Yes i would, because i found the story really exciting and was really transported to the setting and also the characters and the way they were introduced and then developed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stars of Fortune?

    When Sasha finally accepted what she was and helped with saving everybody at the end.


    What about Saskia Maarleveld’s performance did you like?

    I loved the way she gave each character there own voice and ket the suspence going with her naration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, in fact i pretty much did.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing book and i can't wait to start book two and read Anika's and Soya's story.

    "Narrator has an irritating rasp"

    At the end of her phrases the narrator has used a highly irritating drop into a raspy end; it's a v trendy thing among young women but as a affect for an audio book it is most irritating

    Story
    "Throughly enchanting."
    If you could sum up Stars of Fortune in three words, what would they be?

    Magical, mystical, and mysterious.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stars of Fortune?

    When Bran and Sasha realized they were falling in love.


    What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I could not believe how one person could do so many voices and being able to know who was talking as the tone changed for each character. I think she did a wonderful job. I think that the narration brought the book to life as opposed to just reading it and picturing the characters in my mind.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hold on for a wild ride!

    "Wonderful"

    It took me 3 times to start this book. The beginning was slow and I was slightly confused. But as soon as I got through the first couple of chapters I was HOOKED. It was a wonderful book.

    "First Nora Roberts book, it won't be the last"

    I listened to the narrator bwfor choosing as some voices put me to sleep, but Saskia Maarleveld did a marvelous job bringing the six characters to life. The plot is both interesting and exciting with lots of action and relationship building going on in this first book, I guessed what a couple of the characters gifts were, but it didn't mean I wasn't surprised when twists were revealed. I've got book two tonliaten to next, Corfu has always been a place I wanted to visit, hopefully one day, but I've enjoyed my virtual trip thanks to the great descriptions from Ms. Roberts.
