Eeeeep!! I’m kind of at a loss for words to describe how excited I am that this book is going to be a thing come September. I 100% already knew about it, of course, and I’ve had it pre-ordered for a while–there’s a pre-order campaign for it–and it’s also Christopher Paolini’s first book outside of the Eragon universe. So, naturally I had to have it. Like, honestly…Paolini was my hero growing up.
I’m not even kidding. He was the first real hero I ever had.
And I could not be more thrilled that he’s writing again.
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.
Excuse me while I go off and scream for a bit. Oh, also, add To Sleep in a Sea of Stars to your TBR! It just takes two clicks.
