Overview After Kara finally finds a magic gem of her own, in the shape of a sparkly unicorn horn, magical creatures from another world start showing up and causing trouble, and Kara and her friends Emily and Adriane must find out why.
Emily and Adriane each have one thing Kara lacks—a magic gem. But when Kara finally finds a magic stone of her own—a diamond unicorn horn—it brings more trouble than the girls can handle. Pesky dragonflies start showing up everywhere and new Fairimentals appear, warning of danger. Worst of all, a band of terrifying monsters is stalking Kara. Overcoming these perils may bring the teens one step closer to Avalon, the source of all magic. But it may also cost one of them her life.

A New Book Lover Aug 10, 2008
My daughter has struggled with learning how to read. She is 11 and reads at about a fifth grade level. She has consistently been at least one grade level behind and would become very frustrated when asked to read. This is the first book series she has ever read completely on her own! She loves the first three and has been begging to get the rest. I have placed a pre-order on the last three. I can't comment on the story much beyond the fact that she raves about it, but any book that helps my daughter discover a love for reading deserves 5 stars.
From a long time fan Mar 7, 2007
Alright, I'll give this book a bit more credit than most. I agree with alot of people saying karak, the protagonist for this book, is a bit too much like a queen. But then again we have to remember where shew comes from. Kara is the Mayor's daughter and always got what she wanted until she met people who opposed her, aka Adriane and Emily. In this book Kara starts off seeking power to spite the other two, but as the book moves along you can tell some chaaracter development, which was really needed in this series for her. This book wasn't my favorite out of the series, but it made way for an even better story and more rounded characters. In book 3, cry of the wold, kara is evedentily more mature due to what had happened in the last book. For me, this book was a bit boring because there was no really big magical catastrophe, or at least it didn't seem like it while reading, but it did allow for some major characterization which, in the end, turnedout to be better.
Not bad.... May 9, 2006
Well it was ok but... well Kara sorta acts all the Queen of the world and stuff which I think is a little ennoying but it was still an excellent book to read and caught my attention. Kara meeets with a felione cat Lyra, gets a jewel.. not reallly but later on in the series, and the mages finally see the Dark Sorceress. Ohh ya I tried to go on Avlonclubhouse but what do you know it didn't work which bis really odd. Instead it showed this Go Daddy thing! Figures anyways buy this book people that depends if you like Kara but if you don't then you may not.
Not the greatest book in the series Nov 12, 2005
Ok. I don't mean to be rude but this book really was not good. I mean the book was good is just I don't like Kara and I find she is way, way, way to jealous of her friends and selfish not to mention spoiled. Kara wishes she can have a jewel and later she finds one but there are these weird creatures who stalks her. At the end it's good but Kara can act such a queen.
Okay Aug 4, 2005
I was going to give this book three stars, but then I rethought it. This book wasn't all that bad. This book was kind of a let down after the first Avalon book, but still not the worst in the series. This time, the story is focused mainly on Kara. In the first book, the story was focused mainly on Emily. Kara must find out who she is and what her magic means. Kara finds a jewel and must decide whether or not to use it. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, in the beginning, Kara showed some pretty poor personality traits and from the beginning, I thought it was going to be a failure in the Avalon series. I was wrong, but I wasn't entirely. At the end of this book, Kara is still a bit of a snob and we really don't find out what a Blazing Star is. Myself, being a fan of Emily, cannot really relate to the "injustices" that Emily and Adriane put upon her. Still, if you liked the first book, read this one, and be sure to read Book Three. It's a major inprovement.
