The first instalment of Rhiannon's Ride, the exciting fantasy trilogy by Kate Forsyth, author of the bestselling Witches of Eileanan series.

One-Horn's daughter is not like the other satyricorns. Born of a human father, she has failed to grow the horns so prized by her kind. Soon the satyricorns will kill her – and even if she runs away, their swift hunters will find her in the end. When she sees a herd of magnificent winged horses flying over her home in the high mountains, she finally sees her chance. If she could only capture one of the legendary flying horses, and stay on its back long enough to fly far away, she might escape.

So begins a journey that will take her towards danger, death, love and betrayal – and give her a new name: Rhiannon, the rider that none can catch. Travelling with a group of apprentice-witches through a land where the dead walk and ghosts haunt the living, Rhiannon can sense what her human companions cannot: there are dark walkers about, and those who would wish ill upon Eileanan. But can the humans trust the word of a wild and fierce satyricorn girl?

Reviews

A great fantasy adventure from an author who clearly knows her stuff.

Good Reading

A challenging and rewarding read for all ages.

NW

An enjoyable new fantasy series ... Rhiannon's journey is enthralling.

Fiction Focus

A rich, enthralling ride across the pages of fantasy. Vividly she paints her story with bold colors, and the reader is as tied to the engrossing tale as Rhiannon is tied to her beloved winged horse ... This is truly an amazing literary ride through a fantastically created world, where the shades of grey loom poignantly between the harsh realities of black and white.
