The second instalment of Rhiannon’s Ride from the bestselling Australian author Kate Forsyth.

The second instalment of Rhiannon’s Ride from the bestselling Australian author Kate Forsyth.

Imprisoned in Sorrowgate Tower, Rhiannon awaits her trial for murder and treason, while the winged horse Blackthorn flies forlornly over the Shining City. Alone and in terrible fear for the future, Rhiannon is haunted by the malevolent ghost of a dead queen who has a hunger to live again.

Meanwhile, Lewen must resume his studies at the Tower of Two Moons with the other apprentice-witches, among them the banprionnsa Olwynne NicCuinn, who desires more than friendship from Lewen. Drawn back into the intrigues of the court, Lewen finds his loyalty to Rhiannon tested to the utmost limit.

Preoccupied with the upcoming wedding of the royal cousins, Donncan and Bronwen, Isabeau the Keybearer fails to investigate Rhiannon's tale of necromancy and ghosts, to her cost. By the time she realises that dark spirits have indeed been disturbed, it is too late, and the royal family is brought face to face with She Who Cuts The Thread.

Reviews

A challenging and rewarding read for all ages.

NW

A tightly woven, finely crafted piece of fantasy fiction… another jewel in the crown of this fine fantasy writer… Kate Forsyth is the one to read.

CAIRNS POST

Second only to Marion Zimmer Bradley.

WITCH CRAFT MAGAZINE

A writer with a sound streak of both imagination and talent.

DB MAGAZINE

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

GOOD READING

A rich, enthralling ride across the pages of fantasy. Vividly she paints her story with bold colours, 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.
