Overview

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 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.

First I'll start by saying yes some of these characters are very reminiscent of some of her other works, but she's put a unique spin on them. Sure the bones of the plot echoes some of her recent works, but you've got to hand it to her on the mystery, action, adventure, humor, and romance synonymous with what we've come to expect from a Nora Roberts novel. I got a big League of Extraordinary Gentleman vibe from this book and that's not at all a bad thing. I gave this book 4 stars because, anytime an authors writing prose and imagery is so clear cut and detailed that the settings and events paints itself in your imagination and helps you visualize the events as if your watching a movie (one I would gladly pay to see), you have to give them props. She didn't get full marks because I'm so tired of series'. Can I get all the action and a solid resolution without having to 'tune in next time' to see if your favorite characters survive the dreaded villian. Otherwise, you go Nora!

I love these trilogies, but I have to agree, it is very similar to her last trilogy involving vampires. If you loved those books I recommend reading this one. I hope Sawyer and Annika are up next!

This just seems a repeat of several of her last recent books. 3 couples fighting against an evil witch/demon. I normally cant fall asleep while reading a Nora Roberts and this one put me to sleep many times.

The best thing I can say about this book was that it was predictable. The worst thing I can say about this book is that it was predictable. Where's the twists and turns that NR is so famous for? I miss the old NR where she could keep me guessing till the end. Either she's slipping badly or I've read too many of her books. Thankfully her "In Death" series still keeps me entertained as I'd hate to think I'd read the last of her books. I've never been as fond of books that are Fantasy. I'm more of a paranormal, mystery, suspense lover so that could be some of my disappointment. I do however, have the second book in this series as an ARC to review (which was the main reason I read book one) so we'll see how it goes.

This is another winner from Nora Roberts. I realize that this is a theme that she has explored in past novels, but I felt that this book offered a fresh perspective on the subject of good versus evil. The characters were unique and interesting. I'm looking forward to the next book of this series. PSP

This book was a replay of several of her other series. It was too rushed and very little character development.

Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts is the first book in her new Guardians trilogy. As in most of Nora’s trilogies, there are usually three couples, who are part of the entire trilogy, and eventually are paired off, with each couple leading each book. Stars of Fortune starts off with three goddesses who are in the midst of gifting their new queen with special stars; but they must hide it from another goddess, who is in fact evil. The stars fall and are lost, opening the story many many years later for those who are destined to be the ones to find the hidden stars and return them to the goddess. We meet Sasha, who is a famous painter, who also has visions of meeting 5 others to go on a quest she doesn’t understand, but she paints the visions. Sasha decides she must act on her visions and goes to an island in Greece, Corfu. She will begin to meet those who are part of the quest, and who are exactly as she painted them. Riley, an archaeologist, is the first person she meets. Shortly thereafter, she will meet Bran, who calls himself a magician. The three of them realize they were meant to meet, and together they start on their journey, and along the way they will meet the other three: Sawyer, a traveler; Annika, a bubbly beautiful girl, who appears out of the blue; and Doyle, a swordsman. All of them have a little bit of their own magic and each came looking for the stars. They all have secrets that will eventually be revealed, but slowly they must learn to trust each other, in order to be able to defeat the villain, the evil goddess, Nerezza. Sasha is the key, as she is the seer, who can see things, and draw them out for clues. In Stars of Fortune, the first book belongs to Sasha and Bran, who develop their romance during the journey. Sasha is well known, but she is very private. She knows nothing of love, and in Bran, she discovers what she has been missing all these years. They made a great couple, but they are part of the overall story, as this is a full ensemble storyline, with all six of them playing integral parts of the story. Each person has their own secret, and the powers they bring to the group. Rather than tell too much more, this was an exciting adventure, with lots of action, and danger; as well as a fun storyline, with a paranormal theme. I love when Nora brings us a group of people who join together in friendship to become a team that will try to destroy the enemy. They must be united in order to be able to stop Nerezza. This was a nice romance, great storyline, and another fantastic battle between good and evil. I love all of Nora Roberts’ trilogies, and Stars of Fortune was a great start to another winner. If you like romance, exciting adventure, great characters, friendships, nasty villain and a fun storyline, then you must read Stars of Fortune.

Another wonderful tale from Nora Roberts! I’m completely drawn into the well-written magic, wonder and mystery of this new trilogy, and opening up each new secret and battle. Smooth, easy, fast read that brings so much color and light to mind as I weave through. I can’t wait for my next hour, 20 mins - even just a few mins to steal away into this magical world!

First of Island of Glass trilogy. Six disparate individuals meet in Corfu and band together to find three stars. There is a seer, a witch, a lycan, a time and space traveler, a mermaid and an immortal. Not up to Nora ' s usual standards but much better than whoever is in third place.

Who are the 6 and how do they find the stars? Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts is the first book in the Guardians Trilogy. This is one of those paranormal-romance-good vs evil stories that I think Nora Roberts does so well. I found the story to be wonderfully crafted. I liked the paranormal aspect along with the good vs evil. I like the way the story incorporated things that don’t normally happen in real life. It really put the supernatural into perspective. I also love the setting. Ms. Roberts’s description of the island and the atmosphere were extraordinary. I love that each of the six characters have a special ability and that they were able to become instant friends. I think the connections show the power of the Goddesses that they come from. This is their destiny but it is also their choice, as free will is always important in the good vs evil sagas. I loved getting to know their secrets. Annika secret was easy to guess but Sawyer’s caught me by surprise. The romance between Sasha and Bran is precious. Bran has so much patience and Sasha at times is kind of whiny. The evil Goddess, has some serious mental issues. However, I feel that she has more up her sleeve than our heroes know. Nerezza doesn’t seem like the type to give up easily. Nerezza makes Ursula the Sea Witch look small and insignificant. I look forward to the next 2 books in the series, to see how the heroes fair with Nerezza and to see the others romances bloom, and the group grow closer. My rating is 5 stars. This is a Guest Review for Baroness' Book Trove. Thank you for the opportunity to review this book on your site. ~Jen If you would like to see other reviews like this one, check out BaronessBookTrove.com.

Waste of money.

Habitual Roberts readers will find this new trilogy formulaic and predictible, despite the super powers with which every she endows her heroes. She creates a worthy villain. New readers will be enchanted by her feisty couples. Roberts heats up the pages by building up sexual tension. Descriptions of settings and scenery will interest readers.
