The rhymes of Mother Goose meet A Wrinkle in Time in this sequel to A Sliver of Stardust, from Marissa Burt, the author of Storybound.

The Land of Nod used to be just a name in a nursery rhyme to Wren. But when she discovered the secret magic of stardust, she learned that some of those rhymes had secrets of their own—and the Land of Nod is real.

A few months ago, the evil Ma

"And why is it that you freedom comes from not belonging?"

Where on earth is my 6th star button? Or maybe 10th? I am willing to go pretty high for this one.

It is funny how a book can sneak a pretty powerful message in on you.

Wren still has nightmares about the land of Nod, the evil Boggin she so narrowly stopped, and the horrors at the gate between worlds. Unfortunately, it looks like her contributions to the peace aren't over yet. When some work on the gate goes wrong, she ends up on another adventure, one that will determine the fate of both worlds.

I wasn't as engaged by this one as the first book. Wren's still struggling with the aftermath of her actions in the previous book, which was nice. But the plot tries re

Fun second installment - I enjoyed the descriptions of the land of Nod as well as the various factions. High point was definitely Wren's encounter with the Crooked Man; lots of wisdom to be found in that exchange (some of which may be lost on younger readers).

It ended satisfactorily but also with the sense there's more to come.. and yes, I'll be along for the ride

I know my daughter will enjoy, but I

A Legend of Starfire is a fantastical book that is a sequel to the book A Sliver of Stardust. In this case, I would even say that this book is even better than the first! It is full of magic and mystery, and has the suspense that makes you want to never stop reading. I was dissapointed when it ended because it meant I had to find a new book. I think that anyone who loves fantasy and mystery book should check out this one and the first one in the series, because the author knows how to pull the r ...more
