Kick-ass heroine, Malora Ironbound's adventures continue, in another book about survival and friendship in a post-apocolyptic setting with mythical tones.
In this sequel to Daughter of the Centaurs, Malora leaves the safety of Mount Kheironin search of Sky, the stallion who used to lead Malora's herd of horses. She travels with her closest friends through the wild and dangerous bush, and wind up in a city built on the ruins of Cairo--which is wild and dangerous in a different way. This journey sees Malora facing decisions that have the potential to turn her future around in a completely different direction. Whether she is chosing between a haven and an adventure, companionship or true love, Malora's struggles to discover what she really wants mirror the lives of contemporary teens, making this read as meaningful as it is entertaining.
KATE KLIMO has two horses of her own and is an avid rider (as well as writer). She is the author of the Dragon Keepers series.

VOYA, February 2012:
"The first volume of a trilogy, the novel serves as an introduction to Malora and her world as she discovers and is accepted by the centaur society...[T]he setting is intriguing, and enough pieces are moved into place to entice the reader to return for the next chapter."
Tamora Pierce, bestselling author of Terrier:
"A wonderfully developed world, a determined girl hero, and a rarely covered subject—I was glued to every page."
