War is coming to the island of Eburos.
Andoc, Carivel, and Senovo can no longer live quietly in the shadows of the village of Draebard. As tribal Chieftain, Horse Mistress, and High Priest, it now falls to the three of them to organize a defense against the terrifyingly powerful Alyrion Empire.
Senovo—a shape-shifter—has a desperate plan to save them all. But if he succeeds, it just might end up tearing the triad apart forever.
Entrancing and poignant, The Horse Mistress: Book 4 examines the balance between love and sacrifice, along with the hard choices thrust upon those in power when the past and the future collide.

About the Author
The Queen's Musketeers series marked her first foray into both serialized stories and novel-length works. The Horse Mistress series arose from a desire to write something focused more on the developing relationships of the characters. She has found the experience of wrangling more extended and intricate plot lines-along with a larger cast of characters-to be educational, frustrating, and fulfilling by turns. With luck, the end result will prove to be an enjoyable experience for readers.
When not writing, the author enjoys reading, horseback riding, walking her dogs, and raising a small backyard flock of ducks.

This was a great wrap up of the horse mistress books. The story builds up to the invasion of the empire at the end of the book, it was interesting reading about the preparations, the political aspect and the new inventions that were being made because of the looming war. It also was great to see a bit more of Eburos. The tone could be a bit somber at times, but luckily there were enough happy and uplifting moments as well. I liked how all the left over plot lines and last personal struggles of Andoc, Senovo and Carival get wrapped up and I love how much they have found their place and changed throughout this series and it's great to see in what a good place they are at the end. The end battle was a bit anti-climactic on the one hand, but on the other hand I liked how it was handled. The epilogue was awesome and I liked how it gave us resolution and see the three of them together once more. There is a bit of a set-up for the lion mistress books and I hope to start on those soon.
