Book Spotlight: The Winged Horse, by C.P. Lesley

The Winged Horse
C.P. Lesley

Book 2: East in the Legends of the Five Directions series, and sequel to The Golden Lynx (Book 1: West).

The mission seems simple: head south, collect the bride promised six years earlier, and ensure that nothing odd is going on among the nomadic Tatars. Ogodai anticipates no problems. In fact, he’s looking forward to the chance to break free of his father and establish himself in a horde of his own.

But Ogodai’s betrothed is wary at best, his half-brother has competing plans for both the girl and the horde, and even the briefest investigation shows that indeed, something very odd is going on in the nomadic camp.

Before long, Ogodai realizes he must secure his betrothed’s allegiance if either of them is to survive. But can he persuade his unwilling would-be queen that an alliance with him offers more than the traditional role of chief wife?
