I can rave about the cover since I didn't draw it. Wow! I love it! The first set of Guardian Herd adventures is complete. Begin at the beginning with STARFIRE.

Awesome!

I love this book because it touches you with sadness, and when it's happy, overflows you with joy. This is the best book series I've ever read, and absolutely love it! I chose this rating because it is the perfect amount of hope, loyalty, and joy. I am in love with this series!

This book made me feel so many emotions, anger, fear, sadness, every emotion that the main character was feeling I felt along with him. Chapter after chapter I was on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next. The ending was amazing, and I felt some of the relief that the pegasi were feeling at the end. If you have not read this book, go and read it, you will fall in love with the characters, feel what they feel, and at the end you will be so happy that you got to be apart of a ...more

Recommends it for: Horse and fantasy lovers
Loved this book and I really enjoyed the whole premise of the pegasi herds. I haven't read the other books in the series but I still was able to follow and enjoy the book. I do need to go back and read the previous books in the series to get a better understanding of the relationships of the pegasi the different herds. This was a free Goodreads book.

Windborn by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez was the long awaited fourth book to the most interesting Pegasus story about herds that I have ever read. It even trumps The Escape (Horses of the Dawn #1) by Kathryn Lasky. Which is a story simular to it.

Nightwing took all of the pegasi from the trap while Star was busey healing larksong after Frostfire's mother hurt Larksong to distract Star so that they could get all the pegasi. when Star got back he immediately knew it was the work of Nightwing because there was burnt grass from the silver starfire that Nightwing uses. after looking around to see if there were any pagasi left he bumped into Frostfire and ended up making a deal with him that they would together look for both Star's friends and ...more

The final book in this series is nearly indescribable. The few words that can even come close to telling how great it is are these.
Tragic (in a good way). Adventurous. Exciting. Exhilarating. Dramatic (again, in a good way). Irresistible. Incredible. Remarkable. Beautiful. Emotional. Awesome. Breath-taking. Awe-inspiring. Magnificent. Stunning. Impressive. Marvelous. Jaw-dropping. Mind-blowing.

Unforgettable.

I guess that wasn't really a 'few' words. My point is, it's really great and you should

I am a big fan of The Guardian Herd series. The characters will linger with me long after I've finished reading. However, this fourth book was very different for me compared to the other three. The plot wasn't as sharp, and I felt like I was reading just for the final few chapters, which were amazing and tied up the loose ends from book #3. You'll still want to read this one to find out what happens to Star and his friends.

I think this final installment in the guardian herd series is amazing and I think that its definitely my favorite in the series. The one thing I didnt like is that there were some questions unanswered and I would love a small book explaining what happened to the herd. ...more

This was the best way the author could've wrapped up the series. This book had so many surprises in it that it was amazing. You wouldn't want to put down the book while in the middle of reading it.

This is book #4 in the Guardian Herd series, the last book. The author has kept up with the twists and turns in the plotline. No disappointments here.

I love this book series and I'm soooo happy for Star :). It does suck that he no longer has the starfire in him but at least he finally gets to be a normal pegasus. What I didn't like is how Brackentail is in love with Morningleaf. I hope that Star and Morningleaf get to be together and possibly have a beautiful foal. I really hope that Jennifer Lynn Alvarez creates another book where Star and Morningleaf get to fall in love and not Morningleaf and Brackentail.
