Summary, etc.:
"An alliance embarks on a dangerous journey to uncover the secrets of the distant past and save their world in this captivating, deeply visionary adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling thriller-master James Rollins. A gifted student foretells an apocalypse. Her reward is a sentence of death. Fleeing into the unknown she is drawn into a team of outcasts: A broken soldier, who once again takes up the weapons he's forbidden to wield and carves a trail back home. A drunken prince, who steps out from his beloved brother's shadow and claims a purpose of his own. An imprisoned thief, who escapes the crushing dark and discovers a gleaming artifact - one that will ignite a power struggle across the globe. On the run, hunted by enemies old and new, they must learn to trust each other in order to survive in a world evolved in strange, beautiful, and deadly ways, and uncover ancient secrets that hold the key to their salvation. But with each passing moment, doom draws closer. WHO WILL CLAIM THE STARLESS CROWN?"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 December #2
    In his Sigma Force adventure-thrillers, Rollins' characters must solve a modern-day puzzle that reaches into the past. In his new fantasy novel (first in a projected series), the protagonist, a young woman named Nix, must join forces with a ragtag group of misfits in order to evade enemies determined to silence them forever. A familiar format, sure, but in an unfamiliar setting. Rollins' fantasy world is richly detailed, and, as the story opens, readers find they have a puzzle of their own to solve. Is the book set in an alternate version of our world? In the distant future of our world? In the deep past? Readers will have fun trying to answer these questions as they follow Nix on her adventures. Although it's not being marketed as a YA novel, its themes and characters should appeal to teen readers, while Rollins' legion of adult fans will enjoy the way he adapts his successful formula to a new setting. The door is left wide open for a sequel, which is just fine. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
