To 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, loner. All on a quest. All with secrets. Sasha is the one who holds them together - the seer.

I used to love Nora Roberts. And maybe I'm remembering her stories as better than they were, or maybe my standards are much higher now (thanks to new and diverse authors). I couldn't get into the one dimensional characters, the first chapter introduces 3 new characters at once; throws in a bunch of fantasy that we are supposed to just believe, and you are supposed to like these flat characters??? But they are Nora's very typical, flat, trope, rich white women & men that seem more like pawns for her dialogue. (Which is not the greatest either.)

Read it if you really want to escape into another typical Nora Roberts story, including one dimensional rich white characters and a world full of some half-assed mythology and psychic powers (of course the main character has like Supreme Powers, all of them, and can use them accurately, the usual. Yawn.) Oh, not to forget the unrealistic sex where the man gives the woman an orgasm with his big dick without clitoral stimulation. Like all her hetero leads, apparently she writes stories about the 5% of women who climax through penetration. Cool.

This is the first time I've read work by Nora Roberts. Unique premise with a backstory rooted in goddess folklore of the author's making. Though, it's worth mentioning that the only goddess in this book (other than the prologue) is usually called a god and is a villain. I'll certainly read the second book to see how this story unfolds. I very much hope the story holds more positive goddesses.

Always enjoy the light reading of Nora's trilogy. When will the 3rd book be available at the library?

This is Book 1 in yet another "fantasy" trilogy and while it's a good read, Roberts has written this at least 15 times in the past decades. If she isn't bored, I sure am. I'll skip books 2 & 3 because I already know the outcome.

Nora Roberts keeps writing the same trilogy over and over again, just changing the names and locations. Even though you know where it is going , it is still a decent read if you are a fan.
