(4) 4-6 Guardian Herd series. When Nightwing the Destroyer nearly kills Star, a healer pegasus, his friend Morningleaf acts as a decoy to give Star time to heal. But when Star uses his power, Nightwing's forces find him and attack. Although the theme is muddled (peace-loving Star finds war exhilarating) and the sentiment frequently overwrought, the plot makes effective use of rising tension in this third installment.
