Back cover copy

It has been many moons since Star received his powers, and in that time, Star and his friends have been through constant struggle. Now Star truly faces his toughest, most deadly challenge yet. Nightwing the Destroyer has captured all the pegasi of Anok, including Star's friends. And when Star learns of Nightwing's deadly plan for the captured herd, he knows the time has come to fight.

With no one to turn to but his enemy Frostfire, both pegasi search Anok to track down Nightwing. And as a violent storm approaches, Star and Nightwing face off amid quaking lands, dangerous winds, and blazing fires, in a battle to end all battles--and one that will determine the fate of all the pegasi in Anok.

In the thrilling conclusion to Star's story, Jennifer Lynn Alvarez combines page-turning action and high emotional stakes to give readers the final epic confrontation that fans have been waiting for.
