MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Another perfect fit for those who are into the game “Star Stable.” As with all sagas, you’ll find adventures galore, missions to be fulfilled and great dangers to overcome. There will be suspense and thrills along the way as each character grows and develops, discovering things about their own abilities as the story progresses. Tension builds constantly and one threat after another challenges the characters’ strengths and weaknesses.

Characters are strong and well-developed, each moving closer to their own personal goals. Many things going on in this book. I would greatly suggest that the reader starts with the first book before tackling this one to understand the theme and story-line. I enjoyed the writing and can see this saga becoming popular with middle graders.
