    The backstory of Jo Shanks and just how Heather Longtreader made it back to Cloud Mountain to rally soldiers for the fight. Sigh. We were all so very sad that this book was over AND that we have to wait until March for the next book. Thankfully, we still have "The Black Star of King...

    A great little story that lets us behind the scenes of some of the action in The Green Ember. We learn a little more about side character Jo Shanks and get to see some wonderful character development within a short space. A must-read for fans of the series. ...

    What a surprising and interesting little book! Fans of "The Green Ember" will understand when I say that this is the size of "The Black Star of Kingston" but the caliber of "Ember Falls." I appreciate all of "The Green Ember" books but each offering has gotten, in my opinion, stronger,...

    I love the rabbits on the Green Ember series so while I am waiting for the 3rd book, this was a great reminder of the characters and their quest to bring peace and prosperity to the land of Natalia. I am going to reread the first two so the story is fresh in my mind by the time the new...

    It was a nice little visit back to Natalia. However, it was not very believable. In the beginning, if you finish 2nd place in something . You are still going to be on the team of the best... so that?s just silly. Nice message about judging people you don?t know though. ...

    The best thing to say about this one: I wasn?t ready for it to end. Smith?s protagonists may be rabbits, but they represent the best of the human heart: courage and faithfulness and unswerving commitment to the cause of good. Love sharing these with my kids. ...

    Another winner!!! This entire series has been amazing, and The Last Archer does not disappoint either! We are looking forward to more about Heather, Picket, and all of our other favorite heroes! ...

    I definitely enjoyed this short story, reading it all in one sitting! I liked seeing the Green Ember events through the eyes of someone on the 'outskirts' and Jo was a likable character, with his own doubts and fears, but determined to make something of himself. I really appreciated hi...

    The Last Archer was such a surprise book! We've been waiting for news of S.D. Smith's next book in The Green Ember series, Ember Rises, and had no idea that a side story was coming. It is a really fun read. The Green Ember itself will forever be a favorite book, because it was the ...

    Another charming adventure in the world of The Green Ember. This one focuses on Jo Shanks and gives the reader a different viewpoint on some of the main storyline's events. Bold, dark, and well-written. ...

    absolutely loved it. fast paced and exciting. really neat to witness same events as in green ember but from another perspective... I love the series books, but I would love to see other side stories like this come out in time! no pressure, Sam ;) ...

    This is a short story. Wish it were longer! For fans of the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, this series is a must read. ...

    I sure hope S.D. Smith continues writing after the Green Ember series is done. His writing captivates my boys like very few other authors can. The kids were so excited each time a familiar character from Ember Falls entered the storyline in The Last Archer. We are all eagerly anticipat...

    It did it's job at keeping the Green Ember story fresh in our minds while we wait for Ember Rising. It was fun to see a now familiar story told from a new perspective. It only took a few days to finish and the kids loved it. ...

    Oh Jo Shanks, we all love you even more now ? My only complaint is that it was just too short! As ever with Sam Smith, this is a superbly crafted tale. It adds yet more depth to The Green Ember series, further context to the characters, more beauty to an already well-loved story. An...

    I really enjoyed it, particularly the parts that I can't talk about because I don't want to be guilty of propagating spoilers. So I'll just say that, for that one thought I thought about that one thing, it was nice to see my suspicion confirmed. Also, I particularly like stories that t...

    This is a great addition to the world of the Green Ember! I loved seeing this side story of Jo Shanks. He's an easy character to root for. I hope more of these backstory novelettes are added to the cannon. ...

    Oh, I just felt like I sat down for coffee with an old friend. No book has warmed my family?s heart like the Green Ember series has. I didn?t even realize how much I missed our old friends, but it was wonderful catching up and hearing more of their beautiful story. SD Smith truly h...

    This was an awesome addition to the Green Ember series. It is a shorter chapter book, that gives us a glimpse into the life of a character only briefly mentioned in "The Green Ember." I loved this story and even shed a few tears at the end. Great themes of excellence vs. humility and p...

    This was a great short story to tide me over until The Ember Rising came out. I love this world the more I read of it! I'm hoping when I set my kids loose on these books, they will soak in at least one or two of the beautiful themes: you don't have to be the best at something to hone y...

    What an excellent little book. This tells the story of the archer Jo Shanks. My children and I loved getting to know this hero more. The book was exciting, engaging, and so well written. My family can not wait for more. ...

    What a fantastic little book! I loved getting this glimpse into the life of another character in the Green Ember series. As always, I love how S.D. Smith writes his characters and shares how they grow and struggle to become more than just what their circumstances seem to have set them ...

    This Green Ember short story is not to be missed! Thanks to a young Ember fan at church, I finally got to read this book. ;) It?s probably no secret that archers are often my favorite characters. (Also, mailmen and doctors--with or without a capital d. :D) I loved reading about Na...

    Just great. A great example of someone who does NOT have to take glory for themselves. S.D. Smith has created one of my favorite characters by deepening our understanding of a side character Jo Shanks. It builds on the story from his first book the Green Ember and has a rest of the sto...

    Valiant I love this entire series. Even with the terrible circumstances the characters are faced with, they remain loyal, noble, and courageous! Jo is an intriguing protagonist, and I enjoyed hearing some of the same events in Ember Falls from a vastly different viewpoint! ...

    Easy two day read. It's so hard to stop reading because it's so awesome. It's a side story, during Ember Falls, (I think) about Jo Shanks, a rabbit soldier from Halfwind citadel. Everyone thinks he is a nobody, but really, he's pretty awesome. He is sad because everyone is annoyed ...

    I'm on page 13. One part in The Last Archer revealed a lot of information about Jo, an archer's family & past. ""And" Lund replied slowly, "your father's ghost""... "Think of everyone who lost their loved ones... to be murdered by Morbin." ""My mother,"" Jo whispered through clench...

    Again, I feel like S.D. Smith didn't put as much effort into this book. Still, I enjoyed Jo's backstory and perspective. All-in-all it was just an okay book. (although it was fun to see what he thought of Heather and Picket and his reaction to Smalls!) ...

    You need the Green Ember books in your home! These books are wonderful and my kids from junior high down to pre-k love them. Okay... the adults in our home love these book as well! S.D. Smith does not disappoint. He is an amazing writer. These stories are so easy to feel at home in. ...
