Publisher Comments:

"I will go."

Rather than follow her family's restrictive rules, Brighid chose to set out on her own to make friends and form relationships with humans as well as centaurs.

Now she's facing her toughest challenge yet. While helping guide home a grieving human — Cuchulainn, her friend Elphame's brother — Brighid finds herself beginning to care for him.

To add to her troubles, the Great Goddess has awoken the power of the Shaman within Brighid — the first centaur so blessed in ages. And just as she's torn between taking up a power she never expected and a love she's afraid to admit to, Brighid receives a vision of a tragedy that might destroy everyone she's ever cared about....

Review:

"Four Stars! An unlikely love story unfolds in Cast's return to the magical land of Partholon. Cast's tales of Partholon are truly magical. The world is an intriguing mix of Celtic folklore and Greek legend, peopled with an astonishing range of unique races, from the Goddess-touched humans to the powerful centaurs to the winged New Fomorians. Daringly casting a half-human/half-equine as a romantic heroine, this fantasy adventure explores the nature of love, both physical and spiritual, and the soul's ability to rebound from tragedy. Cast once again challenges readers to look beyond outward appearances and, simultaneously, crafts an exciting adventure that will appeal both to romance and traditional fantasy fans." Romantic Times

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "Elphame's Choice," Brighid flees her centaur clan's rigid traditions and prejudice to find peace and acceptance among the humans of Clan MacCallan. When her family summons her home, Brighid must make a fateful decision.
