Review by

In the land where Princess Sylviianel lives, humans and pegasi coexist peacefully despite the difficulties in communication between the races. When Sylvii is, upon her 12th birthday, bonded to a pegasus, they discover they can communicate telepathically. But their close relationship leads them to break the rules and causes some disquiet. The story is not action-packed but rather a depiction of the pegasi society and the relationship between Sylvi and her pegasus, Ebon. This is the first book in a series and unfortunately (given the ending) the next book isn't due till 2014. It would mainly appeal to teen girls who enjoy fantasy.

Review by

On her twelfth birthday Princess Sylviianel (Sylvi) is ceremonially bound to her own pegasus Ebon. Only this binding is different and they can communicate, better than has been the case for many centuries, a way of communicating that has only been whispered at. This changes things and Sylvi is at the eye of the storm.Gah, want book 2 NOW! For all sorts of spoilery reasons, not only because I got pretty invested in the characters and wanted them to succeed (or not) and I'm now really curious about a lot of the background of the relationship between the Pegasi and their humans and how things have come to be the way they are.
