a good addition to the Green Ember family of books

This story brings the reader up to date on some of the stories that the main characters (in the main three books) have "had from the crib" and sets the stage for further adventure in the next Green Ember Series book. My family loves these books!

LOVE IT!!!💜💜💜

This incredible book is very captivating, for both adults and kids, but especially for tweens (8-12). Storyline is very life giving, showing the ups and downs of real life. S.D. Smith is an phenomenal writer, somehow adding that touch of magic that keeps you listening all day long. If you enjoy this book, I would suggest listening to the Green Ember series, if you haven’t already. AMAZING. Love this series.💜📔

Love the additional backstory to a beloved adventure!

These books are an absolute favorite! Each book is a new treasure to add to the Green Ember adventure. I love listening with my 12 & 14 year old who have been avid fans since the first Green Ember Book. Waiting for the next story!

Most reviewers don't give this series enough credit...

I love this series and this is the perfect prologue to the Green Ember! It's perfect! I mean, most onomatopoeia books I read are boring, dumb and are twaddle. It is not often when you come across a great is book series like this one. It is perfect for both genders of about 7 or 8 to.... well, whatever age!

I think that people who have vetoed it should give The Green Ember series another chance. Please read this book! My family and friends love it and so will you! (I hope)😌

Amazing books!

All of the Green Ember books are amazing! It has been a blessing for our family as we travel and listen to captivating stories. My kids spend hours playing swords and archers and absolutely love the characters.

Thrilling side story of King Whitson and company!

I’ve always loved last names or family names and where they come from. The author does, too, and shows the links from our past to our present through the tales. Having grown up without a father, I’m always drawn to a writer with a fatherly voice. George MacDonald has that voice as well as Kenneth E. Bailey. S.D. Smith has it, too. Gently guiding the characters with beautiful encouragement. And we finally see the link in this story to the mention of Lander’s Dragons from the Ember tales.

Another winner

Another fantastic story from S.D Smith. This gives more information about King Whitson, Queen Lilly and Prince Lander after the events in the Black Star of Kingston- as well as filling in more of the history alluded to in the Green Ember, Ember Falls, Ember Rising books. My 8 and 10 year old love these books- bravery, adventure, betrayal, heroism, battles, friendship and sacrifice.
We like that the Black Star of Kingston, The Last Archer and The Wreck and Rise of Whitson Mariner all have the same author.
