Publisher's Summary

A century before Heather and Picket's adventures in The Green Ember, a displaced community fights for hope on the ragged edge of survival.

My place beside you

My blood for yours

Till The Green Ember rises

Or the end of the world.

Whitson Mariner and Fleck Blackstar face old fears and new enemies, forging a legend that will echo through the ages.

Old wars haunt. New enemies threaten. An oath is born.

A hero rises.

An Enchanting Tale

What did you love best about The Black Star of Kingston?

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.

What about Eric Fritzius’s performance did you like?

He was wonderful in giving each character their own life and style. It was easy to get carried away with the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh out loud a few times :)

Any additional comments?

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.

We liked to back story to Green Ember!

This series has captivated our family from my wife and I to our 17 year old son. Our fourth grader says, "Please write more!" You are a true storyteller S.D. Smith. Thank you.

My kids love it!

All four of my kids enjoyed this “prequel” to The Green Ember books. It’s well written and has really fantastic themes. My younger 2 (6&8, boy & girl) especially love these. They listen to all of S.D. Smith’s books over and over again.

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!

I Love Rabbits With Swords!

I think it is an exciting book. There were so many surprises, I never knew what was going to happen next. It was mysterious as well.

A story to evoke bravery, loyalty, and excellence in young and old. My family couldn't wait for the next reading. I highly recommend all of the Green Ember books for quality, inspiration, and enjoyment.

Adventure!

Any additional comments?

A wonderful background piece for The Green Ember Series. Its short length is a perfect fit for car rides of a few hours, and it fills in the history behind the battles in The Green Ember. A good book for the whole family.

Shorter prequel

Shorter prequel. Does not require reading the Green Ember first. Looking forward to next in series.
