9780545397315: Star Rise (Horses of the Dawn #2)

For the filly Estrella, nothing is more precious than freedom. She was born at sea, chattel to men sailing to the New World in search of gold. But Estrella and her herd escaped the conquerors and embarked on a journey across thousands of miles -- braving harsh terrains and fierce predators -- to a land where they can finally run wild.

But now, an unforeseen danger threatens to destroy the pack. A boy with a special gift is lost in the wilderness, and only the horses can keep him alive. But to save the boy, the herd will have to abandon their quest, and risk galloping straight back into the hands-and harnesses- of their captors.

And so, it's up to Estrella, the herd's unlikely leader, to make a life-changing decision. Should the horses accept the orphan boy as one of their own? How do you choose between freedom and friendship?

Review:

Praise for HORSES OF THE DAWN BOOK ONE:

"As in works such as her Guardians of Ga'hoole series, Lasky uses animals to touch on very human issues . . . Complex and distinctive characters offer a fresh view of familiar historical events. A promising start to a new series." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Lasky successfully fuses fantasy and fact as she gives her equine characters credible emotional depth and underscores the tensions and disparity between Old and New World sensibilities. It's a haunting story of loss, self-discovery, survival, and homecoming." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Praise for GUARDIANS OF GA'HOOLE: THE RISE OF A LEGEND:
* "Lyze's story can be read easily as a stand-alone tale. . . . Both thoughtful and action-packed, this adventure illuminates the fantastical world that exists between dusk and dawn." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review

"Lasky continues her best-selling Guardians of Ga'Hoole series with another skillfully crafted fantasy . . . A wonderful family read-aloud as well as a compulsively readable addition for young fantasy and naturalist fans." -- BOOKLIST
Praise for Kathryn Lasky's Wolves of the Beyond series:

"This is a soulful, searching read consumed with the spiritual journeys of animals and the ethereal connection between slayer and slain. . . . With an invigorating ending that bodes well for the next volume." -- BOOKLIST

"The author builds a captivating world of forest, snow and volcanoes populated by intelligent animals and weaves a compelling story sure to bring readers back for the second installment." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
