    Excellent Read

    I had read this book years ago in hard back and loved it! When I saw this triology (there are two more to the series) for $2.99 per book, I had to buy them in digital form to read again! The Year the Horses Came is just as wonderful now as it was when I read it before. Once this is completed, I will be reading the other two (The Horses at the Gate and The Fires of Spring).

    Wonderful Prehistoric

    I hadnb't even known the name of htis author when I first found the book in a store, but the story sounded appealing... After having read this story, I have to say that Mary Mackey is one of the best authors I have ever found!

    A Life Changer

    I discovered this book on a Godwill Store's dollar table. I had just finished reading The Chalice and the Blade (a book describing the Old European Society and the patriarchal nomads from the Russian steppes that destroyed it). Mackey's trilogy gives life to this struggle as well as demonstrating a better way to live. I highly recomend it!
