"An Enchanting Tale"
How absolutely enchanting it was, this book is wonderful for children and adults alike. It has true heroes who face great odds and have to make tough choices. These characters are easy to relate to and you will get lost in the story.
He was wonderful in giving each character their own life and style. It was easy to get carried away with the story.
I did laugh out loud a few times :)
This is a great family story or a personal read. All ages will love it and it will give you something to talk about, think about and play for a long time to come. You will not look at a rabbit the same way again, you will smile.
"Can't wait for the sequel!"
We have listened to The Green Ember and were sucked right in to the story. This prequel was very intriguing to learn the 'back story' and now we look forward to the sequel. S.D. Smith, write on!
Shorter prequel. Does not require reading the Green Ember first. Looking forward to next in series.
This book gives some history to The Green Ember and adds even more meaning to all the things I love about this series!
The Black Star was great. The only thing I would add is that you might want to make another one like it to prove that there are more books. Also, it kept on changing perspectives I would at least have it two chapters not one.
"A wonderful story of courage in the face of danger."
A sweet and inspirational story of those who know their duty and battle against unbearable odds and become the heroes of tomorrow.
What a lovely story of fierce loyalty and bravery. This, along with the other S.D. Smith novels are family favorites.
"Short and to the point."
The trilogy was a recommended read for me. This epilogue gave great insight into the writer's temper. I am now hooked. Fantastic story. I've always liked anthropomorphic writings. As close to amazing as the Redwall series by Brian Jacques.
Our 7 year old really enjoyed it. 5 year old seemed to get lost but still finished it. I probably enjoyed listening to it with them the most
"Talk about the next book"
The next book is da da da the ember falls. I love the other books as well.
