What People are Saying About This

John Allen Royce

John Royce has created a fantastic heroine in Meagan Roberts. Her love and knowledge of horses is critical to her surviving her adventure through equine history that is intertwined with our own. We join her this time as she unwillingly rides with Hernan Cortes in his massacre of the Aztecs. Her excellent riding skill brings her to the attention of King Louis at Versailles as she continues to move forward through addictive and witty story with a large dose of high adventure. Mr. Royce's love and understanding of horses shines through in his writing as does his knowledge of the horse's permanent place in history. His extensive research is apparent once again and I've learned several more horse facts, even though I've had them in my life from the beginning. The blend of myth and legend along with historical fact has come together beautifully into a fictional masterpiece.
I highly recommend The Legend of the Great Horse trilogy to any lovers of fantasy, adventure and a dang good story. --John Allen Royce (
