Description


"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

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 trusy dog, Cypher, and his friend, Andra, must find the cause of the threat before it's too late.
