Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Pegasus by Robin McKinley

Amazon.com summary:

Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pagasi, 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 its 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.

It's the cover that first drew me to this book, because look at it - isn't it amazing?! I would honestly buy it just for that cover. I like fantasy anyway, but Pegasus sounds like something different. Whenever there's mythical creatures and a threat to nations involved, count me in!

I'm not really sure about this, though I do love the cover.

I loved "Sunshine", her vampire book for adults, and "Beauty", her rewriting of Beauty and the Beast for teens has always been really popular with pupils at school, so I'll be looking out for this one!

Does this not have a UK release date? :-(

Becky - I couldn't find one. I did search Amazon UK and nothing came up. Maybe I missed it..

I still haven't read 'Sunshine' although it's been on my 'to read' list for ages! This one sounds good too!

I love this woman and that cover is simply delish

Rhys said...

Wow, what a beautiful cover!

Lauren said...

This is a must-read for me. I've only ever read one book about a winged horse before ('Lyrico'), but the idea totally appeals to me. This sounds as gorgeous as its cover.

Jenny, that sucks! I guess I will have to use the good ol' Book Depo. Thanks for checking.
