    Star Born was written in 1957 and is the second novel of the Astra series As such, you might expect it to be extremely dated That s the good thing about Andre Norton Her focus is on the characters not on technology Not that it would have mattered in the end, not really I found Star Born among my books and discovered that I hadn t read it Shocker, but a pleasant surprise.Our two main protagonists in Star Born are Raf Kurbi from Terra and Dalgard Nordis from Homeport Like so many of N Star Born was written in 1957 and is the second novel of the Astra series As such, you might expect it to be extremely dated That s the good thing about Andre Norton Her focus is on the characters not on te...
