*Giveaway!* Erin Morgenstern's The Starless Sea

600x600 starlesssea 02

To celebrate the long-awaited return of Erin Morgenstern, author of the million-copy bestseller The Night Circus, we’re giving five book clubs the chance to win a set of copies of her spellbinding new novel The Starless Sea.

When Zachary Rawlins stumbles across a strange book containing a story from his own childhood, it leads him on a quest unlike any other.

Determined to solve the puzzle of the book, Zachary follows the clues through a magical doorway leading to a subterranean labyrinth filled with stories. When the labyrinth is threatened, it falls to Zachary to save it from destruction.

Coming eight years after The Night Circus, The Starless Sea is a book-lover’s delight, an epic tale of hidden clues, dark magic and the power of stories.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
