The Mountain's Call The Aurelian Empire is in great peril, and its only hope is a herd of magical stallions, their elite Riders, and the Dance--a pattern that reflects, influences, and sometimes creates the past, present, or future. Full descriptionSynopsis:
Valeria relishes the tales of the mysterious, powerful Mountain where the gods - powerful beings in the form of white horses - live. And she loves hearing stories of the elite Riders who ride the stallions in the Dance - a pattern that reflects, influences and sometimes creates the past, present or future. Though Valeria has a horse sense thought magical, she knows no woman has ever been called to the Mountain. Until she feels a strange pull and makes the decision to answer the call - as a boy. Only Kerrec, a senior Rider, and Euan, a barbarian prince, realise the truth as Valeria survives until the final test and passes with acclaim. But in her moment of triumph her secret is discovered and Valeria loses all that she's won. Meanwhile, the barbarians plot to overthrow the Aurelian Empire. And Valeria's anger and frustration might be enough to give them a way in. Now the Empire depends on the will, the strength and the loyalty of one Rider.
