Pegasus by: Robin McKinley

Publication Date: November 2010


A gorgeously written fantasy about the friendship between a princess and her Pegasus.
Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pagasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own Pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.
But its different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close-so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo-and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.

My thoughts: I have to tell you I tried forever, it felt like, to read this book. I actually went as far as saying I have to read a chapter a day! Never got past chapter four...really dreadfully boring. I'm sure it has to get better but for my to try would mean a painful death. The language was rich and this is something that I've never had a problem with before. I hope you readers are not disappointed. I will try it again but not any time soon...due to the overwhelming TBR pile that seems to grow by day.....LOl. But I do love my family for buying me books. Check out Barnes and Noble for more reviews if you are still on the edge.

My rating: TBD (to be determined)
