Synopsis

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a masterful epic science fiction novel from the New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of the Inheritance Cycle, Christopher Paolini.



Kira Navarez dreamed of life on new worlds

Now she's awakened a nightmare



During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she's delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.



As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn't at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.



While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity's greatest and final hope . . .

Customer Reviews

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars blew me away. I would give it six stars if I could. This is the first book I have read by Christopher Paolini. The protagonist is Kira Navarez, a xenobiologist who is just wrapping up an assignment surveying a planet for colonization, when she discovers an alien artefact. An alien being binds with her and that is when she is thrust into tragedy, conflict and adventure. The pacing is hold-on-to-your-seat fast, but still allows for skillful world building and well-developed characters. Few people can write an 825 page novel; even fewer can write one that the reader can't put down. I love the science, technology and aliens in this future world. It is obvious that immense research and imagination went into this book and that it must have taken years to write. Spectacular, beautiful, stunning, intense and thought-provoking. Read it.
