On the beautiful world Adalta, an ancient threat emerges. Young Marta is dropped
to the planet for her first secret mission alone. Raised by her father on an
orbiting trade ship, he trained her for this - and to live by two rules: Don’t
get attached. Don’t get discovered.

As cover for her mission, Marta joins the Mi’hiru, the all-female elite guard who
patrol the skies on Karda, majestic hawk-headed flying horses.

On this planet where the only weapons allowed are arrows and swords, Marta
discovers a high-tech weapon she knows could only come from her ship. Someone
is smuggling them to use in the bitter power struggle between two noble
brothers. She knows she must stop this threat, and she reluctantly joins forces
with the handsome but arrogant Altan. As their connection grows, Marta
struggles to keep her secret and to keep the rule of not getting attached.

As tensions rise and the ancient threat grows, will Marta accept the frightening
elemental magic powers Adalta wants to give her to save the planet she loves?

Excerpt



The wagon slowed, and Bren poked an elbow into her ribs. Marta

caught herself on the side of the seat before she tumbled off and embarrassed herself.
“Look there,” he said, pointing up through a break in the clouds. “Karda.” Joy swelled in her chest, and she forgot to breathe. Two enormous flying figures were high in the sky, wings outstretched as they circled up

a thermal. Sun glinted from bronze and gold wingtips. Their forelegs

were tucked under, hind ones stretched behind. Manes and

tails streamed.

“Oh, by the Lady Adalta,” Bren breathed. “Did you ever see anythin' more beautiful?”

She watched the creatures rise ever higher into the sky, spread their wings wide in a glide, and disappear into the clouds. And something inside her shifted. Her whole body prickled with the need to see them again. To get close to them. She grabbed the side of the wagon to anchor herself. The few images the spy bugs had sent couldn't compare. I can't believe I might fly on one of those beautiful beings. They are magical. What if I’m rejected for the training program? What if my cover story has too many holes?




Author Spotlight:


Sherrill Nilson used to raise horses. Now she writes about flying horses--with hawk
heads and wicked talons. Author of the Adalta Series, she's been a cattle rancher, horse breeder, environmentalist, mother of three, traveler to exotic places-even a tarot card

reader. She's lived in Santa Fe and Ruidoso, NM, San Francisco, and Austin
after leaving the hills of Eastern Oklahoma and her ranch.


She has a Ph.D. in East-West Psychology, and those studies opened her to the world
of ancient myth and story. The rigor of writing so many papers and her
dissertation suited her. She loves science fiction and fantasy and is a
prolific reader.


She lives, writes, and reads SciFi/fantasy in Tulsa, Oklahoma--back where she
started as the oldest of seven kids (don't ask to drive), three of whom are
writers who love telling each other how they should write.
"Sometimes," she says, "They're mean to me and use too much red ink."


She doesn't have a dog, a cat, or even a bird, but she does have an old Volvo
convertible and loves to drive around with the wind blowing her hair. It's how
she gets her vitamin D.
