Author(s): Jennifer Lynn Alvarez
The first book in a gripping new tween fantasy series about winged horses--perfect for fans of the Warriors, Survivors, and Guardians of Ga'Hoole series. Once every hundred years, a black foal is born, prophesied to either unite or destroy the five herds of flying horses that live in Anok--fated to become the most powerful pegasus in all of the land. Star is this black foal. Even though Star has malformed wings that make him unable to fly, the leaders of each herd will take no risks and want to execute Star before his first birthday. With the help of his friends, Star must escape the clutches of the powerful leaders, and his epic journey of self-discovery turns into a battle between good and evil that will keep readers eagerly turning the pages.
"Will prove popular with both animal-lovers and fantasy fans. ...A good choice for reluctant readers. The clever resolution will get kids psyched for more tales from the Guardian Herd."--ALA Booklist
