Happy Birthday to The Black Star of Kingston! We’re celebrating with a GIVEAWAY so read on!
“I am afraid…But I keep on loving what’s on the other side of this fight, and that will have to make me brave.”–The Black Star of Kingston
And that is how a hero rises.
But what hero? Who was the founder of Natalia? What led to the inception of the oath we know and love?
The Black Star of Kingston has the answers:
“A century before Heather and Picket’s adventures in The Green Ember, a displaced community fights for hope on the ragged edge of survival. Whitson Mariner and Fleck Blackstar face old fears and new enemies, forging a legend that will echo through the ages.
Old wars haunt. New enemies threaten. An oath is born.”
Watch the video to see what S.D. Smith has to say about this legendary oath!
