Summary

FIRST IN THE GUARDIANS TRILOGY

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a trilogy about three women and three men who join forces to solve an ancient mystery through the power of timeless love…

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 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....

Nice story well read but watch out as abridged

Would you consider the audio edition of Stars of Fortune to be better than the print version?

No as this version is abridged, it does say that in the description but I somehow missed it so was confused as I am familiar with the story and it kept skipping bits. Would ave much preferred an unabridged version

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stars of Fortune?

I liked how the characters met and the descriptions of Corfu

Which character – as performed by Saskia Maarleveld – was your favourite?

Have to say Sasha and Bran as its their story

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Probably (especially as it is short due to be abridged... bit annoyed i didn't spot that before i ordered though not sure if there is an unabridged version available)

Any additional comments?

This is a nice story, a good into to the trilogy and it is performed well with no bad accents

Abridged. :(

I didn't want an abridged version of this book. I wanted the actual book I read and enjoyed. Saskia Maarleveld does a wonderful performance so why would I want to buy an abridged version? Please make this more pronounced in the purchasing processes Audible.

Excellent ! I cannot wait for book two! Going to be released in June, 2016

I cannot believe how good this book is! I have listened to it over and over! It is so refreshing to have a great narrator for Nora's book! There was an entire series that would have been great but was totally ruined by the narrators! It shocked me how badly the narrators could ruin an entire trilogy! Blood Magic was first in series! I was so annoyed by all three narrators that the trilogy was just ruined!
The story line of Stars of Fortune really keeps the reader intrigued! And the narrator was very good! No complaints! Ready for book two!
Nora does a lot of books with Irish characters. It is imperative that the narrators match the characters or all is lost! Thank you for reading!

Stars of Fortune review

This is an abridged recording of the book, too much was left out and takes away important and interesting parts of the book. It is unfortunate that they would delete parts of a very good book to make a less than stellar recording.

Story compelling. Actor took some getting used to

Enjoyed the book and surprising turns. The actor using a male voice sounded mechanical...like they used auto tune. Ready for the next one in the series.

Fan forever

I am a Nora Roberts fan. Have been reading all of the In death series with Eva Dallas. This book was a Christmas gift and once I started to listen I was hooked. I liked the way the characters were all different and there combined powers in the end to push back the evil Goddess. I am on to book 2 for the next star to see who falls in love in this book.

The story is goid

The story would have been better if the narrator wasn't so dry needs my expression during the action screens so the listener can really some excitement as well.
