Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

12 yr old Cymbril is a slave on Thunder Rake, a gigantic wagon-city that rolls from town to town carrying goods to be sold by its resident merchants.

     The Rakes master purchases a new slave, a mysterious boy named Loric who is one of the magical Fey. Because he can see in the dark, Lorics duty is to guide the Rake through the treacherous wilderness at night.

     Cymbril and Loric secretly join forces to plan their escapesoon the two friends thread their way through a series of increasing dangers, encountering an enchanted market and deadly monsters as their one chance for freedom draws nearer.

Synopsis:

In the sleepy English countryside of decades past, a lovelorn young man stepsthrough a gap in a high stone wall, and into the most unforgettable adventureof his life.

Synopsis:

Catch a fallen star . . .

Tristran thorn promised to bring back a fallen star. So he sets out on a journey to fulfill the request of his beloved, the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester—and stumbles into the enchanted realm that lies beyond the wall of his English country town. Rich with adventure and magic, Stardust is one of master storyteller Neil Gaiman's most beloved tales, and the inspiration for the hit movie.

Synopsis:

Young Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria-; even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie-; where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a remarkable quest into the dark and miraculous-; in pursuit of love and the utterly impossible.

NOT NECESSARILY FOR YOUNG READERS!

All parents are strongly encouraged to read pages 27 and 28 before buying this for a young reader.

This product is marketed as HarperTeen and sold in the Young Readers section of Powell's. There was no indication from the product info, nor the fairly thorough flip-through I did at the store, of what my child would encounter on pages 27 and 28.

Powell's, please put a "graphic contents" warning on this book!

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the movie much more. The story is great until you get to the end. The end of the book bummed me out.
