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.
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

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.
