Tristan's basket was pushed into this world from Fairie when he was a baby. His father and stepmother raised him in olden times England. He was teased as a child because he wasn't like the other children.
Like all young men, Tristan falls in love. Victoria, the object of his affection, tells him he can have anything he wants if he retrieves the star she just saw fall. Tristan returns to the world of Fairie to retrieve the fallen star for his love so they can marry.
Tristan meets many people and creatures on the way. He gets help from unexpected sources. He finds the star, but not in the expected form. He does not know there are also three murderous princes and a witch also looking for the star. He has to learn about the part of his heritage he did not know he had.
This is a light-hearted, enjoyable book. Tristan is likeable but never deep. None of the characters are studied in great depth. The action goes on, the good guys are cheered on and the bad guys booed off. This book is a pleasant way to while away a couple hours.
