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.

ALL TIME FAVORITE SERIES. This series is seriously amazing! If you have any doubts, like I did, put them aside. My friend recommended this series when we saw it at the Elkhorn Branch. I just got all the books in the series like whatever I'll see if they're good. THEY ARE BEYOND GOOD. They had me HOOKED! There were so many twists, you couldn't even predict the end completely! I recommend this book a lot and give it 5 stars. So amazing!! <3 The main character, Star, is born as a black pegasus. One black pegasus foal is born every 100 years. Star was born dead, but his mother Lightfeather, brought him back by a miracle. One his first birthday, he is to get executed before he can receive his Starfire (power). This is a story about daring steeds who try to save Star and Star's journey to make his first birthday. Nightwing, the only other foal to have received his power, turned into one of the two things the Starfire was capable of making you- a Destroyer. You can become a Destroyer or a Healer. Some of Star's herd believes he will destroy, the others try to save him because they believe he is the healer. This book is sad in some parts, but amazing overall. <3
