Starscape by by Benita J. Prins

A legend that tells of a star… more beautiful than any other… even before the sun… thousands of years ago… wiser than the wisest of men… a song of unearthly beauty…

It was no more than idle talk in the marketplace that began it.

When Pluriel is accidentally reminded of an old prophecy, he and three companions begin the long journey to Nevarra Swamp. Their mission? A nearly hopeless attempt to recapture the Sword of the Star, stolen centuries ago by Jalavak. This Sword is the only weapon which can defeat the Dark Lord, for he was wounded by it in the war of the Valintari at the dawn of time. But what can Pluriel, Ringard, Galdore and Tristal do alone? For if the prophecy is to be fulfilled, the Star itself must fall from the sky – and how could such a thing come to pass? @goodreads

 *I won this book in a giveaway*

You have an evil Dark Lord called Javalak and so many people want to see him fall. There is a story that tells of The Sword of the Star, guarded by the dragon Nevarra, that can kill Javalak.

Ringard and his brother Pluriel decide to go looking for the sword and kill Javalak. Galdore, who owns The Silver Spear Inn decides to go with them, along with his brother Tristal.

These group of people are called Startern and I thought it was cool how they could look straight at the sun without bothering their eyes as nothing is too bright for them to look upon.

Along the way they meet a deranged old man named Gonor. I think he is so sweet and his story is so sad. He was tortured, among other things, and this brought him to a madness.

The group has to fight different creatures that Javalak has sent after them to stop their journey.

They make it to a town with a few mishaps while they are there and they pick up another traveler, a girl named Eloderay. She was a servant but had gotten tired of being beaten so she ran away.

They also have another woman that comes and goes in their group, she calls herself Assiel, but she is something very different and that is not really her name. I'm not going to give that part away :)

Even though this is a short read, there is a good bit of action, plenty of sadness, and some goodness. I really liked the book and it is always nice to read something short that has a lot of meaning. I loved all of the good characters, you got to know them just enough to feel for each thing that happens to them.
