ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jessica Day George’s gorgeous, heartfelt fantasy series continues the saga of a strong-willed girl and the magical bond with her horse.
Anthea knows the truth about horses. They’re not carriers of disease like everyone in their kingdom thinks; they’re majestic creatures that she can communicate with using The Way. Anthea has convinced the king of this, but at a cost—he demands that horses and riders with The Way do his bidding.
But when a deadly flu breaks out, the people believe that horses are the cause. As more fall ill, it's up to Anthea and her friends to transport medicine, all while keeping out of reach from Anthea's wicked mother. And when Anthea discovers a secret that could change the kingdom forever, she must risk everything to reveal the truth before it's too late.
Continuing the sweeping storytelling of The Rose Legacy, bestselling author Jessica Day George delights readers—especially horse lovers—once again.
