Doubleday And Erin Morgenstern Showcase 'The Starless Sea' Official Cover

After more than eight years author Erin Morgenstern returns with her second novel, featuring more fantastical and magical tales of love, swashbuckling adventure, and mysterious settings and characters. The book is called The Starless Sea and is set to be released late this year.

Its official cover has been unveiled and we have Dan Funderburgh to thank for the idyllic art and John Fontana for the magical design. Just like the cover of The Night Circus, the overall mood is so mysterious and does not give away much, which makes me even more interested and excited.

Check out the cover of The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern


From the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus, a timeless love story set in a secret underground world--a place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea.

Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues--a bee, a key, and a sword--that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians--it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also of those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose--in both the mysterious book and in his own life.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern will be released on November 5, 2019.
