I felt as though the story was dragged out through the entire book it really should've been a shorter book , and the ending was caught of nowhere. By the end of it, I just found myself not caring whether or not Tegen's destiny as the Star Dancer unfolds and of what other plodding adventures she'll undertake in the sequel. Born under the dancing stars one fateful night, Tegen has a destiny that has been written for her, one she must follow.
However there are people out there who will stop at nothing to keep her from the path that was created for her Star Dancer is great, in my opinion. I found the book at a local second hand store I frequent and, taken in by the beautiful hardback cover, the map drawn inside the cover and the idea of magic and spirits, I decided to buy it for myself to see what it was all about, Born under the dancing stars one fateful night, Tegen has a destiny that has been written for her, one she must follow.
I found the book at a local second hand store I frequent and, taken in by the beautiful hardback cover, the map drawn inside the cover and the idea of magic and spirits, I decided to buy it for myself to see what it was all about, and honestly, I fell in love. I am a lover of all things mystical and magical, so this book was right up my alley. It was fun, the characters made feel all sorts of emotions ranging from angry to happy to disgusted, depending on what character we are talking about and I thought that it was genuinely well-written, though a little straight forward.
That said, this is aimed at a younger, teenage audience, however it was still engrossing and kept me up at night, wanting to know more until I had finally finished the book. I really enjoyed Star Dancer, and found it to be a promising start to what I hope is a good series. It's not the best book I have read in a while, but honestly, it's a good read and it's fun! It left me in awe, and I like what it provided for me as a reader.
Great characters, great dialogue, a beautiful use of magic, and whilst the great evil that came around at the end was rather anti-climactic, the book still held on its own. I recommend this for those who love magic and good characters, and it is worth a read. Tegen was born the same night the Watching Woman stars danced. Because she was born on this night she was supposed to be the Star Dancer, but she is a girl, no girl has ever even been a druid.
The druids searched for a boy that was born on that night, but they were unsuccessful. After 13 years of searching they found no one. At a carnival Tegen was given a green shawl, which she liked to dance with.

She then found out that every time she danced with that shawl she made magic! No one but Witton Tegen was born the same night the Watching Woman stars danced. No one but Witton, the druid leader, believes that she is the Star Dancer. However, he is afraid to admit it, hoping that he is wrong and there is a BOY out there. Tegen has to find out if she is or if she is not that Star Dancer in order to be able to protect herself from the people who want her dead and protect the village with whatever problems the confront.
I really like this book a lot. Beth Webb uses descriptive vocabulary, which makes you feel as if you are in the book. She describes how the feelings of all the characters so thoroughly it is like magical! She does this to emphasize the feelings that characters are feeling. The plot is also a one of a kind. It is very unique and exciting. I didn't really like the ending. It felt like the story was incomplete. There was so many questions I had. Star Dancer does have a sequel, Fire Dreamer.
I hope that after reading it I will answer my questions. Star Dancer is an all-round brilliant story. It encompasses growing up, being yourself, finding the truth, the differences in love, and being the odd-one-out, while beautifully painting the picture of what it was like to live in Britain in the Iron Age and into the Roman invasion. This is the first of four books, and each one takes you deeper into life and customs from the time, including the common man, the druid community, the roman nobility, the roman army, and how they interacted.
Drawn from Star Dancer is an all-round brilliant story. Drawn from evidently extensive personal research, Beth Webb has created an inticing story with a very memorable heroine, who you are able to relate to. It keeps you going all the way to the dramatic end, drawing you through real history in a dance to a lesser-known tune, that non-the-less keeps ringing in your head long after you have closed the book.
I would recommend this to all readers yes, boys and girls aged 13 upwards, including the adults. This is definitely more New Age than historical fiction although the setting seems to be first-century Britain, with talk of the invading Romans who don't actually appear. The intended readership must be YA, as the narrative skips quickly from the birth of the protagonist to her early teen years. The plot is partly resolved but also left open for the sequel.
Since the subtitle of this one is "The Book of Air" and the next one is "The Book of Fire," that suggests we're heading for four in all, This is definitely more New Age than historical fiction although the setting seems to be first-century Britain, with talk of the invading Romans who don't actually appear. Since the subtitle of this one is "The Book of Air" and the next one is "The Book of Fire," that suggests we're heading for four in all, but I'm not sure my interest will last that long. I am a bit torn on this one. On one hand It is unbelievably refreshing to read a young adult fantasy book set in the iron age.
The descriptions are rich and the characters raw and realistic but the pace was perhaps a little slow for me in the middle. Perhaps I am a little to old and male for this one!

A must read for those left a little jaded by more conventional fantasy novels but just not quite right for me. I will settle for a slightly lower star rating but the assurance that if you are actua I am a bit torn on this one. I will settle for a slightly lower star rating but the assurance that if you are actually a young adult then you should read this. This was an okay book. I wouldn't classify it as Young Adult, more like pre-teen.
It was one of those filler books, or a book to get kids into reading maturer books. The characters were realistic, the plot was original, it was exciting and very accurate historically. The second one is even better, and jumps up the age-line slightly. All in all, a good book, great for kids but that I still enjoyed. Star Dancer would have been just my thing around 15 years ago.
Griff has Downs Syndrome and although the writing makes it easy to read about his condition, sometimes the portrayal felt too simplistic. The plot wobbled but it is still a fun read. Sep 16, S. More young adult fantasy but an interesting story I think I would enjoy the other 2 books in this series as the setting is a time when druids an interest of mine were the spiritual leaders of the land.
I liked this book, I read it quite a long time ago and I can't quite remember everything about it. I think I enjoyed it but it isn't one of the best books I've ever read, I think I will have to re-read it and do a more detailed review. This was a goid book, a really reallt good book, but it has a specific target group in mind that is just not me. Definitely a tween book. Loved this book! It was amazing! I read this a few years back and enjoyed it Russell Tidemann rated it really liked it Oct 03, Yvonne rated it it was ok Aug 12, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
