The Guardian Herd: Stormbound is a book written by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez. The story takes place in a land called Anok. In all of Anok there are six herds, River Herd, Mountain Herd, Snow Herd, Sun Herd, Desert Herd, and Jungle Herd. The characters are: River Herd: Star (the main character), Morningleaf, Bumblewind, Brackentail, (semi-main characters),Echofrost, Flamesky, Sweetroot, Silverlake, Dawnfir, Crystalfeather, Rowanwood, Dewberry, Lightfeather, Mossberry; Mountain Herd: Rockwing, Hedgewing, Birchcloud, Frostfire, Shadepebble, Larksong, Darkleaf; Snow Herd: Twistwing, Petalcloud, Clawfire; Desert Herd: Sandwing, Raincloud; Jungle Herd: Smokewing, and, last but not least, Spiderwing. The Guardian Herd is a series, and Stormbound is the second book in the series.
First, Stormbound is interesting because the characters are actually pegasi (plural for pegasus), and NOT humans like in other books, which makes the story unique.
It’s also adventurous because the whole of River Herd needs to move away from the other herds because they are carrying a very contagious plague and they don’t want to spread it.
Also, it keeps you guessing and it is also action-packed. At one part, of the story, Morningleaf is kidnapped (or should I say, FOALnapped) and she tries to escape and you don’t know how she does it. And when the part comes closer, even though you still have to guess, but it will be more clear. And your guesses, you will find out, when you get to the part where she escapes, are really, really accurate.
To conclude this book review, I just want to tell you to read this action-packed, interesting, and adventurous book. You’ll love the book if you like pegasi, action, impatience, and adventures. Thank you all for reading my lovely book review.
