Stars of Fortune (The Guardians Trilogy #1) by Nora Roberts (Romance)

Stars of FortuneTo 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 all 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.

Stars: 3.5/5

I’d really like to be able to give this book 4 stars (or a 5) like I do most Nora Robert’s book, but while this one was good it wasn’t great. This book feels very similar to her other fantasy series. Same characters, new names; same story, different quest. In this one think The Circle trilogy, meets Stars of Mithra, meets The Key series. It all feels very redundant. While I enjoyed those stories and enjoyed this one, it wasn’t NEW. Oh it had it’s moments where it was new, but while it was new the character type was very much the same as her others. I’ll keep reading the series, mostly because of the villain, Nerezza, she’s going to lose, but she’s interesting.
