"Runa decided now was the time to slip away. She grabbed her bag and cloak, intending to run for the trees."

In Callenlas, dragons carry riders on adventures, and stars are rumoured to live among human beings. Caught up in a war that threatens everything they have ever known, a downtrodden apprentice and a discontented princess find themselves drawn closer and closer to the great King Elior.

Will he prove to be Zaphreth's greatest enemy, or the hero of Runa's legends?

With echoes of the Christ and our own redemption story, The Dark Star is for every boy who feels the pull to be something more, and for every girl who longs to choose a life of adventure and meaning."

Tama Fortner, ECPA award-winning and bestselling author
