Just when it looks like there is hope for horses and their riders to be accepted in Coronam, a deadly plague hits the villages in which the horses are stationed.  Now Anthea and the others are desperate to not only find a cure, but also a cause, because they know it wasn’t horses!  And what do you do if someone who is supposed to love you turns out to be damaged and evil instead?

Nice!  I love that the author turns away from the expected and forges a new story path.  It takes a bit long to get there, but there is plenty to think about and chew over as we all waited with bated breath for the third book.
