This was a really interesting world. This is a bit like the Bible taking place in a different time and place. I loved Alastair who has turned his life around. I loved all the different characters. I especially like Abbagael and Telwyn. I am looking forward to seeing how this series continues in the next book. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

firequeenAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The best yet.May 21, 2012firequeenAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been a fan of Mr. Batson for some time now and I have to say that this book is my favorite. The world he created in this one held more depth and life. The characters were relatable and real, not cookie cutter or cliched. The conflict was the best part. With most fantasies, the conflict is on a world scale and while this book has that too, there is also a lot of personal conflict that shows these characters to be human. All in all, I loved it.
RAMH4 Stars Out Of 5The Sword in the Stars - 4.5May 9, 2012RAMHQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Storyline - Alistair Coldhollow has changed his ways to follow the First One. Turning from a life of addiction and regret, he gazes upon the stars searching for the sword that will announce the prophesied hero, the Halfainin, that will save the world. A hero Alistair desperately needs. When the sword appears, he goes and tests many to find the Halfainin, but none pass. Falling into despair, he meets a woman running for her life who hands him a bundle containing a babe. After seeking help from an old friend, Abbageal, mystery, war, and love soon follow. But can Alistair receive forgiveness for his past deeds and the world of Myriad be saved from a sly tyrant trying to take the throne?
Personal Opinion - One of the best books yet by Mr. Batson. His characters are so real and the story is so captivating. I got pulled into character's struggles and story without even noticing it happening. I loved the adventure and journey they went on. The land and inhabitants were creative and the Christian analogy of the story was beautifully done. Just beautiful. The villains of the story made my skin crawl and gave me the shivers. I have said this in a previous post but I will say it again, Mr. Batson is talented when it comes to villains. A must read for fantasy, adventure, and Christian readers. They won't be sorry.
