Pegasus by Robin McKinley

Undersized Princess Sylvi, fourth child and only daughter of King Corone, shocks her family and court when she bonds with her Pegasus. In the land of Balsin, royal children at the age of twelve, meet their own Pegasus that remain with them for life. Until Sylvi’s bonding ceremony, however, humans and horses were unable to communicate without the assistance of a magician. For Sylvi and Ebon, her Pegasus, mental and verbal communication is instantaneous. Shock at this development leads to anger and outrage from Fthoom, head magician. For the past 800 years the humans and Pegasus had signed a treaty that brought protection against their common enemies. Now, however, these same enemies threaten the kingdom anew. Sylvi and Ebon know disaster is just a stroke away.  Fthoom is determined to destroy their friendship. The fantastic flying world of Pegasi is made real for Sylvi and readers. Sylvi must learn to balance her own world even though she is more attracted to the magnificent world of the Pegasi. The book ends with Silvi’s brothers on the battlefield and Ebon leaving her. It would not come as a surprise to learn that there will be sequels.

Lilian Hecker, Pelham.
