Riders of the Realm Across The Dark Water by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez

The Sandwen clan use flying horses to protect themselves from intruders.  There weren't any wild flying horses.  And then some flew over the Kingdom.  Where were they from?

HarperCollins sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published May 1st.

Rahkki has a special relationship with the flying horses but he's afraid of heights.  When one wild horse is captured, another comes to join her.  The captured one is more like a pet, the one that surrendered is more of a warrior.  She came back to help the other one escape.  That is going to change her life and Rahkki's as well.

This is the beginning of a new series and it's a very exciting read.  Their kingdom is being invaded by giants, the queen hates him, his brother is injured and he's trying to save the warrior horse.  This world is foreign to the wild horses.  The predators here are larger and humans want to capture them.  So do the giants...

This author has a good imagination and creates a world that is fascinating and strange all at the same time.  I enjoyed this read.  The author sows enough clues to give you a hint about the next book in the series.  This series won't get boring...
