    • I'd have loved Star Dancer if I'd read it a few years ago. A strong main female character, an interesting portrayal of disability (Downs syndrome) in an Iron Age society, druids, magic, and a pragmatic view of stuff like childbirth and menstruation -- it happens, so let's not pretend it doesn't.I still liked it a lot now, but it'd have come at the right time for me a few years ago. I'd say a teenager is likely to get the most out of it -- the plot is fairly straightforward and easily followed, a [...]


    • I've decided to do a quick review of this, another book from the school library of my youth, because I'm currently reading a similar but more adult book, Jean M. Auel's 'The Clan of the Cave Bear', and it brought back memories. I remember enjoying 'Star Dancer', despite having quite a lot of reservations with its content. Its heart lies in the protagonist, Tegen (I love that name), who is a free-sprirted and outspoken young girl for her time - in an age when villages were governed by druids who [...]


    • Born under the dancing stars one fateful night, Tegen has a destiny that has been written for her, one she must follow. However there are people out there who will stop at nothing to keep her from the path that was created for herStar Dancer is great, in my opinion. I found the book at a local second hand store I frequent and, taken in by the beautiful hardback cover, the map drawn inside the cover and the idea of magic and spirits, I decided to buy it for myself to see what it was all about, an [...]


    • Tegen was born the night the Watching Woman, (stars) was dancing. She should be the Star Dancer, but she is a girl, no girl has ever even been a druid. The druids search for a boy who was born the night the Watching Woman danced, but they couldn't find anyone. After thirteen years of searching, nothing. Tegen gets a green shawl, whenever she dances with it she makes magic. Nobody but Witton knows that she is the Star Dancer, but afraid to admit it. Tegen has to find out if she is or is not the S [...]


    • First thing that I have to say about this book is that I pretty much read it in one day, or rather, it would have been one day but ended up being two because I was reading another and passed out a couple of hours after midnight.Regardless, this book was everything I expected that it would be. The writing was good and flowed nicely, I didn't predict where the story was going but it wasn't complicated and could easily be seen. The main character is a strong young girl whose like any other young gi [...]


    • Star Dancer, by Beth Webb, is the first book in a historical fantasy series written for young adults and set in Iron Age Britain. It is populated by villagers whose lives revolve around the seasons and whose beliefs are based on pagan ritual and magic. The druids who oversee the traditional ceremonies retain their power by operating a closed shop system. In return for providing intercessions with the Mother Goddess, regarded as essential for health and prosperity, the druids’ physical needs ar [...]


    • Tegen is born the night the stars dance. At the end of the Iron Age, the age of Roman invasion, of druids and of magic, her birth is auspicious. A prophecy has foretold that a 'star dancer' will be born who will be able to save the people in the face of the troubles to come. But, from everything the people know, their traditions, prejudices, knowledge, the star dancer just can't be a girl can it?The first in the Star Dancer quartet - we are introduced to our wonderful heroine, Tegen. She is youn [...]

    • A great and terrible evil threatens the druids' future. Their only hope is the Star Dancer: a child who will be born under an untimely comet and who is destined to protect them. As the fated star-shower lights up the sky, the druids are watching. They believe the prophesied boy has arrived. But down in the village, the midwife has just delivered a perfect little girl. Her name is Tegen--and she is the Star Dancer. Tegen is rejected by Witton, the Chief Druid--but when a visitor gives her a green [...]


    • Tegen was born the same night the Watching Woman (stars) danced. Because she was born on this night she was supposed to be the Star Dancer, but she is a girl, no girl has ever even been a druid. The druids searched for a boy that was born on that night, but they were unsuccessful. After 13 years of searching they found no one. At a carnival Tegen was given a green shawl, which she liked to dance with. She then found out that every time she danced with that shawl she made magic! No one but Witton [...]


    • Si vous comptez lire le livre, sachez que les tomes suivants ne seront pas publiés.Je pensais que ce ne serait pas très banal avec la présence des étoiles (l'idée doit me venir du Livre des Etoiles d'Erik l'Homme) puis avec le nom de Tir na nog, les druides et le fait que les druidesses étaient peu appréciées Mais pour moi, si on avait accentué le côté féministe par exemple en traduisant le star dancer par danseuse des étoiles tout au long du texte quand on parle de Tegen, j'aurais [...]


    • Star Dancer is an all-round brilliant story. It encompasses growing up, being yourself, finding the truth, the differences in love, and being the odd-one-out, while beautifully painting the picture of what it was like to live in Britain in the Iron Age and into the Roman invasion. This is the first of four books, and each one takes you deeper into life and customs from the time, including the common man, the druid community, the roman nobility, the roman army, and how they interacted.Drawn from [...]


    • This is definitely more New Age than historical fiction although the setting seems to be first-century Britain, with talk of the invading Romans (who don't actually appear). The intended readership must be YA, as the narrative skips quickly from the birth of the protagonist to her early teen years. The plot is partly resolved but also left open for the sequel. Since the subtitle of this one is "The Book of Air" and the next one is "The Book of Fire," that suggests we're heading for four in all, [...]


    • I am a bit torn on this one. On one hand It is unbelievably refreshing to read a young adult fantasy book set in the iron age. The descriptions are rich and the characters raw and realistic but the pace was perhaps a little slow for me in the middle. Perhaps I am a little to old and male for this one! A must read for those left a little jaded by more conventional fantasy novels but just not quite right for me. I will settle for a slightly lower star rating but the assurance that if you are actua [...]


    • This was an okay book. I wouldn't classify it as Young Adult, more like pre-teen.It was one of those filler books, or a book to get kids into reading maturer books. The characters were realistic, the plot was original, it was exciting and very accurate historically.The second one is even better, and jumps up the age-line slightly. All in all, a good book, great for kids but that I still enjoyed. :)


    • Star Dancer would have been just my thing around 15 years ago. Even now at age 27, it’s an enjoyable read with interesting ideas, including a depiction of disability in the Iron Age. Griff has Downs Syndrome and although the writing makes it easy to read about his condition, sometimes the portrayal felt too simplistic. The plot wobbled but it is still a fun read.


    • More young adult fantasy but an interesting storyI think I would enjoy the other 2 books in this series as the setting is a time when druids (an interest of mine) were the spiritual leaders of the land.


    • I liked this book, I read it quite a long time ago and I can't quite remember everything about it. I think I enjoyed it but it isn't one of the best books I've ever read, I think I will have to re-read it and do a more detailed review.


    • This was a goid book, a really reallt good book, but it has a specific target group in mind that is just not me. Definitely a tween book.





    • poorly written, very simplistic. could have been so much better, is very deceptive but written for a yuonger audience


    • i did not enjoy this as much as the second but i know it is probably because i read the second book first so i knew what was going to happen


    • a good read. strangely moving and magical. i read throught it slowly tho xDmay look to find the next books in the series, if im not caught up in anything else
