Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Better that you'd never been born, his father had said.

Soulai is not brave like his sister. Nor is he a skilled craftsman like his father. And when Soulai accidentally burns down his family's home, his father gives up. He sells Soulai into slavery for five years to pay off the debt.

While working in the royal stables, Soulai meets a horse unlike any other-a stallion named Ti. Like Soulai, the stallion is owned by the spoiled young Prince Habasle. But unlike Soulai, the stallion is respected by all and thought to be marked for glory by the gods. Soulai realizes what he must do to escape his enslavement-befriend the stallion to prove that he's bound for his own land of greatness.

It's gripping, vivid storytelling.

-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Sold into slavery by his own father, Soulai works in the Assyrian royal stables, where he meets a horse like no other. Immediately he knows this horse will help him to be great and prove his worth to his family.

Synopsis:

Another beautiful triumph of historical fiction from acclaimed author Diane Lee Wilson

Better that you'd never been born. The words still burn in Soulai's ears even after his father sells him into slavery. There was no room in Soulai's family for a dreamer. While working in the Assyrian royal stables to which he'd been sold, Soulai meets a horse unlike any other. Immediately he knows this horse will help him to be great and prove his worth to his family.

Full of action and a heart-wrenching journey to find self worth, this modern classic is sure to appeal to any reader who's ever felt like they didn't belong.

The unusual historical time period and location will appeal both to educators and to fans of historical fiction looking for something new.

It's gripping, vivid storytelling. -Kirkus, starred review
