Stars of Fortune
Whenever Nora Roberts starts a new trilogy, I always say I'm going to wait until all three are out and read them at once. Every time, every single time, I end up reading book 1 and then having to wait... I hate waiting. Is this her best book ? No. Is this kind of her formula? Yes. Did I really enjoy reading it? Yes. Am I waiting impatiently for book 2? Yes.
My predictions?? Book 2 has Sawyer and Annika hook up (if indeed Annika can hook up with a human). Book 3 as Riley and Doyle, something of finding the 3 stars and returning them will break Doyle's curse.
potential spoilers so I'm adding a break here.
I guessed Riley's secret almost immediately when Roberts described her for us pool side, Annika I was even more sure of - especially after the bag of coins and not understanding money. We are introduced to Sasha as a seer - and her vision of Bran with lightning coming off his hands told me he was some kind of sorcerer. Didn't guess Sawyer's secret - maybe if I were more into steampunk I may have? probably not though, especially since I thought Doyle was some sort of time traveling warrior when his weapon was a sword.
