Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication. But it's different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close-so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo-and possibly to the future safety of their two nations. New York Times bestselling author Robin McKinley weaves an unforgettable tale of unbreakable friendship, mythical creatures and courtly drama destined to become a classic.

Every single time I pick up one of Robin McKinley's books it turns out to be a fantastic read, and Pegasus is just another one that proves she still has it and she keeps on giving. Every single time I read her book th...
I've loved Robin McKinley's books ever since I read The Blue Sword in high school. It's great to see another original fantasy from her (rather than a fairy-tale retelling). It's going to be a long wait until the next installment comes out.
