    1. Walker Watson is constantly picked on because of his star-shaped birthmark on his cheek. It is only when he meets a prince named Eddie that he travels with him to the Kingdom of Nebula that he finds out that he is royalty and the King wants him to rule in his place when he dies. But does Walker want to be king and why does Frankie get to come too? Read on and find out for yourself.This was a pretty good YA fantasy I got for a dollar at Dollar Tree but if you like these types of stories, definite [...]

    2. Walter is a average boy. He does have one unique thing about him, a birthmark. Peter, from another world, comes to visit him and persuades him to visit his world, Nebula. Walter then finds that his birthmark has set him apart as the chosen one that can save Nebula from the Warriors of the Black Shroud.I didn't like how it was written. It didn't flow smoothly. The cover is too babyish and the plot took too long to develop. I would still recommend it to a boy who likes fantasy.

    3. Walker Watson is your average every day bookworm. Here in the normal world he's nothing special just a kid with a birthmark. But in the world of Nebula he's the Chosen One. The birthmark that's been the bane of his earthly existence being a bullseye for bullies, marks him as royalty. As a darkening force threatens the light of Nebula and it's people, Walker will have to find within himself the courage and strength to save the kingdom and his friends.Warriors of the Black Shroud enforces a lot of [...]

    4. This book had a good chance, but it seems as though it simply is a Harry Potter wannabe. We have Walter, a nerdy boy who likes to read and has a weird scar (he is the chosen one). When he meets Eddie, who is really Prince Edward of Nebula, he goes to Nebula with him. In this alternate universe, Nebula has only one source of light which they keep from the evil Warriors of the Black Shroud. There is also a young girl who works with Walter and Eddie (making them a trio of two boys and a girl—see [...]

    5. Walker is a a very withdrawn teenager and anything but adventureous unless you count all the books he has read. Born with a large red star shaped birthmark, he has endured years of teasing and stares. When a strange boy turns up and tells him that this blemish marks him as a Chosen One and Prince in a hidden Realm of Light, Walker has a hard time not just turning around and walking away. But he must learn self worth and trust in his new friends to help save Nebula from the comming dark.The book [...]

    6. Walker has always been embarrassed about the star shaped birthmark on his face, so much so that he avoids other kids at school. To make matters worse, his mother seems overly concerned with the fact that he has no friends. Thus, when Eddie shows up, literally out of nowhere, and demonstrates great respect for Walker because of the star, Walker is suspicious. Eddie claims to be from an underground world, where a star shaped birthmark is a sign of the Chosen One. Curious about Eddie's claims, Walk [...]

    7. Classic good vs. evil and there is nothing wrong with that basic premise but this book somehow missed the mark. The characters seem much younger than their age, the dialogue is often forced and the story really just does not grab you. Good for very young fantasy readers (1-3 grade) who need a thicker book but with more basic content.

    8. Great book for kids. It seems like books for kids are getting more complex with more adult concepts. This book keeps it simple and therefore is more accessible for all readers. The story is a great introduction to allegories.

    9. I love this book! I thought for sure Walker was going to become king! I didn't know Eddie would get his mark back! Much less he ever had one! I love this book! Great job Peter Howe!

    10. This was a great story. A boy and girl from our world journey to the world of Nebula. The boy is the chosen heir of the king. There is magic and danger in this story. I liked it.

    11. Not compelled to finish. It felt like it was written by a child; just because a story is aimed at children, doesn't mean it should sound like it's written *by* a child

    12. i really enjoyed this book as a teen even though it is written for a younger audience :) if i was a character in this book i would be eddie
