HASH(0x9e0f83cc) out of 5 stars A Ride Not Easily Forgotten! Dec 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
There is no warming up and easing into this read. Through the eyes of the unexpected you are sent leaping straight into the heart of a loving family on a battle ground of the worse kind.

Author Randy Mixter knows the dance played by inner demons, and the physical, emotional battles that are fought to make what is said impossible, possible in real life! He uses this knowledge well to create a powerful yet, heart-warming message of hope for those who believe in family, and those who are willing to fight the impossible.

Morning Star, is about love, loss, and a 8 yr/old girl fighting an incurable disease. With empowerment of a loving family and through the simplistic act of belief the war is fought. This belief expressed through a legend centered around a flower and a powerful mystic horse. A perfect combination to empower the hearts of a war vet, his only child dying, and their loved ones around them.

This heart-warming book is all about family! No, not the mushy type were everything is perfect, but the kind of family that does support each other in truth, hope, understanding, kindness and love. All of which provides the strength for them to fight and overcome the demons of the past and to fight the present trials at hand.

They fight alone, but are they really alone? Or is their fight being watched by hundreds of unseen? Will a jealous one kill all that is good out of foolish spite?

Morning Star grabbed my attention from the first page! In my mind's eye I could see this book being played out on the big screen! I hope someday to be buying a ticket for just this purpose! I highly recommend this story for all families. For readers 12 years and up, but it would make a great bedtime story for younger ones too.

HASH(0x9e0f8420) out of 5 stars Great book for a holiday gift! Nov. 30 2012

Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! What a wonderful story Randy Mixter has written! It's a fast-paced, upbeat tale of a little girl and a special horse. The novella is so highly descriptive that I could picture each scene as though I were watching a movie. The magical and mystical aspects of the story seem almost possible. Those who believe in miracles will especially love this feel-good, family-oriented book. It is great for all ages!

HASH(0x9e0f8858) out of 5 stars Mystery and Enchantment Feb. 28 2015
By CathyR - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Mysterious and majestic, Morning Star appears in spectacular fashion, sailing over the barbed wire fence as Nate Walker is checking the perimeter of his horse ranch for any damage, and gallops on towards his house.

Dannie Walker is in hospital, a very sick girl, without apparent hope of recovery. Dannie has a vivid dream one night about a horse and desperately wants to go home. She isn’t the only one having dreams, her father has his own ghosts he needs to lay to rest.

Mix these elements together with a loving family, a magical horse and a legend about a blue flower and you have a heart warming and captivating story of miracles and mysticism, love, loss and hope. Things Randy Mixter writes about extremely well.

I love the introduction about the legend of the Morning Star, a dark blue rose-like flower, explaining how it’s been extinct for many hundreds of years and opinion is divided about the truth of the plant’s existence.

I believe this novella would appeal to younger readers, just the right length, as well as older ones that want to escape for a couple of hours into a wonderfully descriptive world of mystery and enchantment, which makes anything seem possible, and with a touch of the paranormal.

HASH(0x9e0f8c18) out of 5 stars Captivating and Endearing Dec 4 2012
By Jeffrey Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good fiction is all about promise. It is the promise of the author to tell a good story and to respect the reader.

That's exactly the kind of promise you get with Randy Mixter's captivating and endearing novella, Morning Star. Mixter doesn't need a lot of flash to tell a good story. In this character-driven story, Nate and his daughter Dannie carry much of the drama which holds the reader's attention throughout. Mixter delivers that promise and more.

This is a book for all ages. If you have children, it is the kind of story you could read to them. Young adult readers will also find it interesting and enjoyable to read. It's really refreshing to just read a good story and Mixter has done just that with Morning Star. He's an excellent story teller who knows his craft well, but more importantly, delivers on the promise to tell a good story. If you and your children have enjoyed such classics as Black Beauty or My Friend Flicka, you are definitely going to enjoy Morning Star.

HASH(0x9e0f8bc4) out of 5 stars Warm and Mystical Dec 16 2012
By Amber Fox - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novel is well written and will tug at your heart strings. Dannie is an eight year old girl who has an incurable disease. She becomes attached to a horse named "Morning Star," an incredible horse who can do things that other horses cannot. It brought back memories of reading "Black Beauty" and the "The Red Pony," but without excessive descriptions to bog down the plot. Parents and children alike will enjoy reading this book.
