To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a brand new epic novel from #1
New York Times bestselling author of Eragon, Christopher Paolini.

Kira Navárez 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 . . .

  • Simply Wonderful

    By Sisyphus732
    I believe Christopher Paolini has done it again. This book, this world, is rich with detail and meaning. Nothing was wasted or irrelevant to the narrative as Paolini was able to naturally create the structure of this new world while pushing and pulling reader forward with the protagonist Kira Navárez. In translation, never did I feel the weight of exposition for expositions sake. Therefore, this massive book never felt boring for every page was needed. I read it all in 3 days. I highly recommend you read it for yourself.
  • A Beautifully Written Sci-Fi Odyssey

    By User171741
    To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a beautifully written book. It tells the story of a woman who discovers proof of sentient beings on a planet her team is preparing for colonization by humans. After her discovery, she is thrust into a whole new world where she must ultimately save the universe from destruction. The story is dense and there is a lot to get through, but it is also a fascinating world created by beloved fantasy writer Christopher Paolini. The characters are interesting and diverse and the journey they embark on is one that will stick with me for years to come. This novel has everything you want in an epic novel: adventure, fun and interesting characters, emotional depth, and gorgeously written prose.
  • Mind-Blowing!

    By FSMeurinne
    Mind-Blowing! Wow, I have no idea what to write in a review of this astonishing story. You just need to read it, but I will try. Okay, Christopher Paolini has been working on this project for like nine years, the details and every aspect of this story was perfectly planned and it definitely shows the amount of work behind it. I've been a fan of Christopher Paolini since Inheritance Series was first published. I was waiting for this book for a while and I was more than excited when I got the honor to review this title. This story is a first contact sci-fi type of story, you get fantastic characters, starting with Kira Navarez. I was so enthralled by the story, how the author added some humor and banter into the story. This book is big, and I love big books and I cannot lie, almost 900 pages, and definitely didn't feel like it, when it's a good book and you get hooked time flies. The audiobook is so well narrated, I was expecting a group of narrators, but Jennifer Hale did a fantastic job, so kudos to her, I am looking forward to what she does next for sure. Brilliant story I am hoping to watch on the big screen someday!
