The novel is set on an alternate Arauz with the unfortunate name Star I think an English translation should make this Starbourne or something a little less confusing, astronomically. Ages ago there were many civilizations on Star, but something happened and the Wound la Herida opened up cataclysmically, estrel,a altering the structure of the world.
Now periods of Stillness la Quietud are interrupted by Shatterings which remake much of the geography of the world. There is a relatively stable area called the Bourne el Linde where groups of humans have managed to survive, some in small, clan-centered communities estrellla Salvia and a few in larger cities like Rundaris. Key to their survival are their local Runners Corredoreswho bear information to other communities, and the mysterious Wanderers Erranteswho travel the Bourne constantly, preserving ancient knowledge and aiding communities in need.
Author: Javi Araguz & Isabel Hierro
The Wanderers the call themselves Caminantes de la Estrella or Starwalkers take no individual names, but they hold many secrets. No human can touch them they are all marked by a star tattooed on the back of their hands as a signbut they’ve never told anyone why: This king died, having failed, but he left his people a special map that would, he hoped, help them eventually find the cure he had not.
The book opens in Salvia during a Rupture. Lan, a teenage girl with a gift for working with plants, attempts to save a young boy who has wandered away from the village.
When she finds him just beyond the edge of the safe zone, she sees him being dragged along by a strange young man.
She assumes the boy is being kidnapped and goes after him, but she is painfully seized by the kidnapper and pulled through the storm of Particles one sort of manifestation of the Ruptures When the Rupture ends, Lan discovers that she is back in her village where she lives with her mother her father having disappeared during a Rupture years earlier and her friends Nao a herder of wimos, a rapid beast of burden and Mona. The Wanderers have come to visit Salvia, but Maester Nicar as the Salvians call their guide doesn’t have good news: Lan discovers that the young man who had apparently tried to kidnap a boy during the Rupture is actually one of the Wanderers.
Without warning, Salvia is bombarded directly by Particles, and Lan finds herself swept away by geological changes to a desert where the young Wanderer saves her and takes her to his people, traveling to Rundaris to warn that city of the acceleration of the Ruptures.
After some initial distrust, the two begin to form a grudging bond of respect. The Kidnapper as she mentally refers to him for most of the book since he has no name reveals one of his people’s secret: En Rundaris, Lan is assigned to work with the Kidnapper’s father, the Green One el Verdewho abandoned the Wanderers long ago to help the king of Rundaris find agricultural solutions the city sits on a volcanic plain.
Together they discover that the Green One’s specially cultivated plants are producing a sap that renders the Particles inert. Realizing that this could be the cure that the king of Acantha sought centuries ago, Lan, the Green One and the Kidnapper with help from Nao and Mona, who have conveniently survived the destruction of Salvia and have made their way to Rundaris come up with a plan to steal the Starwalker’s map so that the Green One and allied Runners can reach the ancient temple and deliver the cure to the heart of Star.
However, a Rupture hits Rundaris in the midst of their escape, incapacitating the Green One and forcing Lan and the Kidnapper to go attempt the journey instead.
They are displaced to an arctic landscape, and after many hardships they arrive at the territory of a northern clan. It is here that Lan finds her father, whose mind has been destroyed by the Particles.
As they raaguz and prepare for the final leg of their journey, it becomes clear to Lan and the Kidnapper that they aragkz feelings for each other, but neither is willing to move on those feelings, the young Wanderer because of how poisonous his touch is for humans and Lan because her friend Nao declared his love for her back in Rundaris this love triangle seems a bit forced, by the way, as if the authors knew it was obligatory in a YA novel.
When a Rupture strikes, Lan is forced to chose between her father and the Kidnapper. She opts for the latter, feeling horrible, but understanding that the planet is in the estrellx. The two finally make it to the temple, only to discover that the Wound has expanded around it.
La estrella by Javi Araguz
They are forced to enter the black mist that hangs over that sickness, and inside they find horrible creatures and nature itself turning against them. They are able to make it through to the temple, which they discover is a machine like the globe they’ve stolen. Using the resin they’ve brought with them, the two are able to get the machine working.
It begins to generate more of the substance, and the Kidnapper realizes that someone has to travel into the heart of the planet in the machine, probably sacrificing himself in the process.
He embraces Lan, kisses her so that she will be weakened by his poison, and he leaves her behind, confessing his love for her. Before he leaves, Lan whispers the name she has invented for the nameless Wanderer: Calan, “the protector of Lan. Except for the two protagonists, most of the characters are pretty one-note, though not obnoxiously so.
Lan is pretty independent from the beginning, so the bravery with which she confronts tough situations isn’t character growth per se. Her evolving attitude toward Calan is the only growth we see. Calan, on the other hand, does have an arc: Unfortunately, the book is narrated in a largely limited third-person viewpoint that lets us see Lan’s thoughts only. The story is pretty run-of-the-mill, but that’s okay. The world was interesting enough, though I would’ve like to have more background on the Wound, a closer peek at the different societies, more insight into the characters.
This was a very plot-driven exercise. The universe is TV science-fiction in other words, there is no overt magic, but the supposed technology doesn’t follow any actual scientific understanding of the universe That said, I like Lan, and it was fun to spend pages with her.
