The Star Shepherd (Hardcover)
"A story about friendship, family and finding your way in the world--this book truly shines "--Jen Calonita, author of The Fairytale Reform School series
Neil Gaiman meets How to Train Your Dragon in this illustrated middle-grade novel about a boy, his trusted dog, and his best friend, as they race to save the stars before their light is extinguished for good.
Kyro is a star shepherd. He's spent his life tucked away on the outskirts of town. There, he and his father watch the night sky and race to rescue any that fall, catapulting them back into the sky.
When too many stars fall all at once, and terrible dark creatures start to appear in the forest by their home, Kyro knows something is terribly wrong. Kyro's father journeys far to report what has happened but doesn't return.
Determined to find his father and stop the stars' light from going out for good, Kyro, along with his trusty dog, Cypher, and his friend, Andra, must find the cause of the threat before it's too late.
