Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
A deliciously descriptive fairy tale, Tolkien-esque and full of legend. Pegasus is not for those with more impatient tastes, as it cannot be described as action packed, but those who appreciate a creative fantasy will be delighted. The magical creatures are wonderfully inventive, the history of McKinley’s land and its inhabitants is beautifully detailed and absorbing. The pint-sized Pegasus-wannabe protagonist is likable and full of spirit.
In an idyllic kingdom, humans have forged an unlikely alliance with the native Pegasi inhabitants by defending the noble breed against a terrifying cast of mythical creatures. Slyvi is a superfluous princess, living happily below the radar until she discovers that she is able to speak to a Pegasus, using the silent language of his people. Such an unusual talent pushes her unpleasantly close to a magician’s guild that seems tangled in deception. (PUTNAM, Nov., 397 pp., $18.99, ISBN: 9780399246777, HC, 12 & Up)
