The battle between good and evil plays itself out through two children, a mythical horse and an imprisoned dragon.

It was seven minutes after midnight on the seventh day. Whoooooooosh A flash of light streaked the sky. A shooting star touched a strange carving on the hillside and a magical horse shook itself free of the chalk and rose to its feet. It was seven minutes after midnight on the seventh day of the seventh month. The only person watching was Chantel. No matter. It was enough. The summer of magic could begin.

The White Horse Talisman is the first volume of The Summer of Magic Quartet, four books involving a Canadian brother and sister visiting their two English cousins.

In The White Horse Talisman, Chantel, Adam, Holly and Owen must help Equus, the great white horse, find his mate and foal and regain his magical talisman. But as the horse rises, so does the dragon. The age-old battle between good and evil threatens the bond between Chantel and Adam and endangers the quest.

This is fantasy as its best, a story that raises hairs on the back of the neck and sends satisfying chills up and down the spine, a story that, while clearly drawn from the rich world of make believe, feels truer than true.

Award-winning author, Andrea Spalding, has written many popular books for children, including Young Readers Phoebe and the Gypsy and The Keeper and the Crows and picturebooks Sarah May and the New Red Dress, Me and Mr. Mah, and It's Raining, It's Pouring. An accomplished storyteller, Andrea hails from England where she was long steeped in ancient lore, lore that now finds it full expression in the first volume of The Summer of Magic Quartet.

The White Horse Talisman is the first of four books in The Summer of Magic Quartet.

Book two is Dance of the Stones

Book three is Heart of the Hill

Book four is Behind the Sorcerer's Cloak (coming 2006)
