Beschreibung

New York Times bestseller

Named a best book of the year by The Guardian, Good Housekeeping, Real Simple, and The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus, a timeless love story set in a secret underground world—a place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea.


Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues—a bee, a key, and a sword—that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians—it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also of those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose—in both the mysterious book and in his own life.

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

Anne-Marie Herold, Thalia-Buchhandlung Rostock

Eine tolle Geschichte über Abenteuer, Märchen, die doch wahr sind, Helden, Liebe und inwieweit das Leben vom Schicksal vorherbestimmt ist. Ein Buch voller Phantasie und Liebe zur Literatur.

Franziska Goseberg, Thalia-Buchhandlung Paderborn

Morgenstern captures your attention from the very first words of the story - or stories as I should say, since this book is a story in another story tied together with other stories - utterly fascinating and just as mesmerizingly written as her debut novel "The Night Circus"!

Brilliant

I loved this. I really did. This story is, like, so brilliant. But I am so confused about the ending. It was also very confusing and too fast sometimes. I like The Night Circus better but this is still really truly brilliant
