New Erin Morgenstern Novel Announced!

The Night Circus is one of my favorite books and unlike anything I've read before or since. It is a staggering debut novel and an intimidating thing to follow up. It's really no surprise that in the seven years since it's publication, Morgenstern has yet to publish a second work.

Just when I've come to terms with thinking perhaps Morgenstern doesn't have a second novel of the same scope in her, I read the description for The Starless Sea. I'm already in love with it.

So far, it seems to possess all the same elements of romance and fantasy that make The Night Circus such an amazing, everlasting book -without trying to capitalize on its predecessor. That's right, no sequel, prequel, or companion novel here. Morgenstern is setting the stage for an entirely unique and new story, this time with the magic locked in a nocturnal circus, but into inexplicable books, hidden subterranean libraries, and a New York masquerade party.

Let's hope that The Starless Sea will make a wonderful brother or sister to The Night Circus. I know one thing for sure: with it's title and Morgenstern's record, its cover is bound to be gorgeous.
