Heritage Of The Star

By Sylvia Engdahl

Rating: 3 stars

Only the Scholars live in the City and have access to Machines and Power. Noren believed that their knowledge should be available to all, and sets out to disprove the Prophecy that has the people in thrall.

I enjoyed this children’s adventure story. It’s a coming of age tale with a well-sketched protagonist and enough depth to hold your attention. There’s a little bit of dubious astronomy but we can probably let that slide.
