      Despite what I said in my By Fire, By Moonlight review, the plot of this came back to me very quickly as I started reading it--though the fact that I so completely forgot it offers quite the hint into what kind of impression it made on me when I first read the book.In Search for the Star, Princess Arianna of Balinor has recovered her Scepter and passed the trial by fire and the ordeal by moonlight, so things are seemingly back to normal in Balinor. Seemingly. Because the oh-so-very-evil Shifter [...]

      Five down3 (?) to go. Seriously if my 7 year old daughter didn't adore these books, I would never turn another page. There are gaping plot holes. It's like the story was written with no plan. We're halfway through the series now, you'd think there be a general direction by now. Instead it's a muddled mess. That all being said, my 7 year old thinks these books are awesome and takes no notice of the glaring shortcomings.

      The series continues, and the characters continue to develop. Even Lori is no longer so one-sided and annoying.

      Series Overview The books are easy reading and much easier understanding to beginning readers so they may be a much better choice for younger crowds for whom they are more directed to. Also the author Mary Stanton does have a beautiful way with words when she describes the Celestial Valley while her imagination has done a great job with the forming of her unicorns within the story.So far in my opinion this is probably one of the better books within the series but still a plain read for me. Arian [...]

      I'm reviewing this series as a whole.I originally read this series way back in 6th grade. I remember loving it, mostly because I loved both horses and fantasy. Going back as an adult, I see it's still good, but I also see some large issues that my younger self missed - or forgot.1) Lori. Lori is so effing annoying. Stanton kept teasing me with the possibility that she'd finally go away, only for her to find some way to stick around and complain. Or almost get everyone killed.2) The ending. Talk [...]

      The ease and speed with which Ari overcomes her obstacles and minor things such as deep wounds, exhaustion, hurricane-force storms, and fields of burning earth, the trips into "danger" may as well be deemed a skip through lollipops and rainbows. (In a near literal sense, it already is.) Princess Arianna is a Mary Sue to be reckoned with, which is saying something, considering I've read and ripped apart Twilight and The Hunger Games.Perhaps the series may improve the further I reread; the Shifter [...]

      I received this series of books as a child through some program where they sent me one each month, and I remember enjoying them. I'm currently going through my bookshelves rereading books that I'm ready to pass on to new owners. The story isn't too original, a magic kingdom at war with a lost princess as the heroine, but there's nothing really wrong with it, especially since it is for children. There are worse books for a young reader, but there are also better. If you or your child is a horse l [...]

      I have now made it through 5 of the 8 Balinor books! I clearly remember the 4th book being my favorite, and the 5th being my least favorited that still stands. This one was the hardest to get through so far, and I feel like things could have moved a little quicker. Stanton seems to enjoy leaving the main action of the story until the last 30 or so pages, often making the build up monotonous. I do remember loving the 6th installment though, so we will see what happens.

      Absolutely loved the 5th installment! It has been a long time since I've read it, but I can still remember how vivid and exciting the writing was. Ari's adventures are un-put-down-able, and the meeting with the unicorns of the rainbow was amazing. All those colours, different personalities and characteristics so wonderfully described. Stanton has a wonderful, captivating style.

      So they find the star, right? (In this one, I think) It reminds me of the star that Galadriel gives Frodo and that is all I can think of when I think of this star.

      Talks about team work and having each others back in protecting.Also about fighting for what you believe in and staying determined. Slow at times but mostly enjoyable.

      Biased because I read the series first as a 10-year-old. I was feeling nostalgic.

      A little better than the previous installment. Would have loved this when I was 8.
