Review: Stars of Fortune (The Guardians Triology #1)

Stars of Fortune (The Guardians Trilogy, #1)Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Blurb (from Goodreads):
To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces… 

Sasha Riggs is a reclusive artist, haunted by dreams and nightmares that she turns into extraordinary paintings. Her visions lead her to the Greek island of Corfu, where five others have been lured to seek the fire star. Sasha recognizes them, because she has drawn them: a magician, an archaeologist, a wanderer, a fighter, a loner. All on a quest. All with secrets. 

Sasha is the one who holds them together—the seer. And in the magician, Bran Killian, she sees a man of immense power and compassion. As Sasha struggles with her rare ability, Bran is there to support her, challenge her, and believe in her. 

 But Sasha and Bran are just two of the six. And they all must all work together as a team to find the fire star in a cradle of land beneath the sea. Over their every attempt at trust, unity, and love, a dark threat looms. And it seeks to corrupt everything that stands in its way of possessing the stars…

My thoughts:
This one was an OK read for me. I love Nora Roberts' mystery/crime writings but not so much the romance ones. This book leaned towards romance and some of the soppiness had me cringing a bit. That being said, the underlying storyline was good and I liked the mystic, magical aspects of it.

My recommendation:
This was a good book for an easy read, with a mystical twist but don't expect too much depth to the story or the characters.
