Book 2 in the Historical Horses series!

“Impressive research brings this era to life; characters ring true, and equestrian abilities, while impressive, are fully credible.” —Kirkus Reviews

Lady Kallisto of the Trading House of Iona, teenage daughter of a rich merchant and a freed slave, is an extraordinary horsewoman. In Central Asia in 102 BC, Kalli and her mother breed herds of metallic Persians on which they fight like nomad warriors. When a spy carries tales of these fabulous horses across mountains and deserts, the Chinese emperor dispatches his huge army to capture the herds.

Kallisto will need everything at her disposal—Greek bartering, golden trade goods, tomb treasure, and her warrior ancestry—to save her beloved horses from the army, and to save herself from an arranged marriage to someone she cannot trust. In siege warfare, and through loyal friendships, she will hone her courage and forge her future.

Based on true events, this novel traces the ancestry of Akhal Teke horses, and their role in opening the western portions of the legendary Silk Road.

“Strong female protagonist and suspenseful sequences.” —School Library Journal
