Elen is a horse girl. She can feel them inside of her. When she is invited to come to Earth to become a worldrunner (a rider who can travel on a horse between worlds), she doesn't think it can be true. She has dreamed about this her entire life, but are her enemies at war, the Caledonians, just tricking her to take advantage of her world, or do they just want the war to go away? Is it even possible for her to befriend Ria, a Caledonian princess who love horses as well, or are there just too many differences between them? How will she ever forgive a world that has hurt hers so badly.

I loved this book. If you are an animal lover, like me, then you will connect to the characters perfectly. This book shows that you can forgive, forget, and become a better person. It had such a great story line! I would recommend it to anyone. EL,
