About the Book



"Star is prophesized to become the most powerful winged horse in Anok on his first birthday, but he must first overcome his malformed wings that make him unable to fly and threats from the leaders of the five herds"--



Book Synopsis



Riders of the Realm author Jennifer Lynn Alvarez "will lift the reader on the wings of danger and destiny, magic and hope"* in this first book in an action-packed fantasy adventure series. Perfect for fans of the Warriors 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 winged horses that live in Anok--fated to become the most powerful Pegasus in all the land.

Star is this black foal.

Even though Star seems harmless because he's unable to fly, the leaders of each herd aren't willing take any risks. So, they plan to execute Star before his first birthday. With the threats against him mounting, Star must rely on his friends and the untapped power within to win an epic battle between good and evil.

* (New York Times bestselling author Peter Lerangis)



From the Back Cover



Once every hundred years, a black pegasus foal is born, forever changing the five herds of flying horses that live in the land of Anok. For this foal will either unite or destroy the herds--and is fated to become the most powerful pegasus in all of Anok.

Star is this black foal.

With malformed wings that make him unable to fly, Star seems harmless. However, the leaders of each herd will take no risks, and will execute Star before the prophecy can take effect on his first birthday. With threats from all the herds, and nowhere to hide, Star must rely on his friends. But it's his own strength that will surprise him, no matter what the future may hold.
