Six people with very disparate secrets are drawn together on the stunning isle of Corfu by an inexplicable force none of them completely understands in Nora Roberts’ Stars of Fortune. But will these total strangers learn to trust one another in time to save mankind from total annihilation?



In this first installment of the Guardians trilogy, we meet Sasha Riggs, a reclusive artist whose magnificent drawings come straight out of her dreams, and sometimes her worst nightmares. Her latest series of paintings haunts her so badly that she finally boards a plane in search of the place and people she has committed to canvas.

Once Sasha arrives in Corfu, she meets five strangers who will change her life forever: a magician, an archaeologist, a wanderer, a fighter and a loner. Has serendipity brought them together, or were they somehow selected to participate in this enterprise that began long before any of them were ever born?

In Stars of Fortune, Nora Roberts has drawn on multiple genres to tell a story that is epic in scope, a joy to read, and which should come with its own tub of popcorn. Fans of Indiana Jones, the Avengers and Lord of the Rings will gulp this tale down in one sitting, eager for the next installment. It is a breathtaking adventure, and yet, because it is Nora Roberts after all, there is still plenty of romance here too.

If you love a story with a sweeping arc, plenty of character development, girl power, tons of action, and more than a dash of fantasy, you won’t want to miss the Guardians trilogy. It’s decadent, delicious fun!
