Early Book Review: The Star Shard by Frederic S. Durbin

The Star Shard by Frederic S. Durbin is a wonderful fantasy novel for children around eleven to fourteen. However, older and younger children, and adults, can enjoy this book as well. It is due to be released on February 28 2012. The story follows twelve year old Cymbril, a singing slave on board a traveling city called the Thunder Rake. The city is essentially a traveling market on a giant wagon city, hiding more floors and rooms than even its residents know. When another slave is brought on board, the fey boy Loric, Cymbril becomes more aware of her captivity and strives to gain freedom for both of them. The Star Shard introduces a brilliant new fantasy world, and I am eager to see this story continue on in future books.
