I loved this book, and I hope that others do to. It was amazing, and wonderful, and totally mystifying all together. I am so excited for the sequel, but it can even be a great book on it's own. However, the ending wasn't so strong, and should have been worked on a little more. Hoping that the author can release the next one soon. I totally recommend this book for real bookworms, who especially like fiction. And if you don't mind being put on edge, and having chapters that can take about half an hour to read, then totally read this book!!!

What? WHAT? W. T. F. !!!! Where is the rest of the book? Perfect classic sword/sorcery/talking-animals gorgeous fantasy storytelling, I loved it -- real I-believe-in-magic love -- right up until the horrible last page. Give me the sequel and you can have the other four stars back, author! ***SPOILER ALERT*** for anyone else who's finished the book and outraged, ye olde interweb says the planned next book backwards is called nobe, which of course is a great relief to know even if the bloody author is all George RR Martin and may likely die before bothering to write it.

I really like the plot and want to read the sequels (apparently it is one continuing story, but three books, sort of like Lord of the Rings). However, it was sometimes hard to follow. McKinley is a great writer and it was written cleverly, but I found it kind of disorganized. I am assuming she did this on purpose, but like I said, it made it harder to follow what was happening. I recommend it for fantasy and horse lovers.

The story and story world are very good. But the book could have benefited from an editor's help. Specifically, the author has a tendency to linger over paragraphs in which the main character's thoughts goes in circles, which does not move the story forward and just bores the reader (who usually knows more than the character does). On that note, the Underlying Dilemma is very interesting, but the reader figures it out within a few chapters, while the character spends the entire book wondering if anything is even going on.

The book ends with an awkward non-ending. It seems as if the last dozen chapters were left out of the book. It would have made more sense with the addition of the words, "To be continued..."

Published in 2010 but here we are at the close of 2014 and there's still no sequel. Apparently if/when it is published, the title will be Ebon.

This book is amazing. I can't wait untill the sequal. Everything is in great detail and sounds amazing. I wish it could happen to me. At the end you have a cliff hanger that makes you begging for more. It's amazing.

The book took me a LONG time to read due to the off track thinking of the princess, she went off thinking about a certain topic and continued into grater depth for far too long that made it very confusing for me to follow. Another blocker in the book was the mention of the Princess' relatives who are not a part of the center story, the same with palace officals and ancestors who are confusing to follow because the book has no family tree or glossary. The locations in the book are hard also imagine, so many places of the palace are described that it's hard to follow without a visual map. The good point to the book is the characters. Sylvi minus her being to much of a thinker is an ok character. Her pegasus Ebon is sarcastic and hilarious. Sylvi's parents,tutors and oldest brother are all high supporters of her when she gets involved in being able to talk to Ebon. Not one of my favorite books but ok.

found it a bit confusing at times as the story was a bit staggered and the ending is a complete cliff hanger. hopefully the sequel will come out soon

I found it to be really entertaining until about halfway,where the story seemed to lag.The ending left me feeling like I just wasted 400 pages worth of time.I honestly hope the sequel will be a lot better.
