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?

As fantastic as I remember

The book is almost exactly as I read it before, only now I am older and can understand the inner workings better. The main character, Rhiannon, still irked me a little but she was still quite realistic in her fears and determinations. The supporting characters are fantastically 3 dimensional and really take the entire piece up a notch. I wouldn't want to give anything away, as this story is best experienced first hand but I am most eager to read the next two and can't wait to see what happens. In all, a wonderful read from an Australian author, who I know has other series that I will be getting into soon!

I bought and read this book quite a few years ago but was unable to get the second two books for the series so threw it away. Long story short: I bought this again, and its sequels because I remember this fondly and passionately. I haven't yet reread it and will post a review when I do. But I will provide a quick glance review with what I remember; Diverse and unique landscapes, creatures and magics. Mature yet not explicit details with a hint of realistic reactions and consequences. Characters that are both lovable and fear-worthy, with plenty of development. I also remember a cliche beautiful dangerous main character (Rhiannon) who looks nothing like her mother species and is 100% beautiful human. Who is amazing perfect at everything she does but I know deep down there is something I have forgotten with the main girl and I bet when I reread this I will change this opinion.

“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...
