The Horse Goddess
Publication Date: 25 Nov 2019
Centuries before the High Kings, the druids ruled the land…
Epona is a young Celtic girl gifted with mystical abilities. But she has never wanted the destiny her power decrees. And so when Prince Kazhak and his wild band of Scythian horsemen burst into her life, she does not hesitate.
Fleeing with Kazhak across the vast grass seas of ancient Europe, Epona masters the art of the ridden horse and leads the Celtic expansion from Bohemia into the west.
But their journey is plagued by the menacing presence of Kernunnos, a perpetual shadow some call the Shapechanger.
This symphonic adventure weaves an enthralling web of magic as it resurrects the colour and ferment of a long-vanished world, perfect for fans of George R. R. Martin, Madeline Miller and Katharine Kerr.
