I’ve posted two reviews here of Robert Digitale’s first novel, Horse Stalker, subtitled The Root of Glory: Book One. Charles Markee wrote an insightful review, and I’ve listed my own review too. I’m sure you’ll find the horse details accurate and intriguing.
If you find fantasy books the next best thing to horses, this series may gallop away with your imagination as you follow the adventures of Rog, the Horse Stalker. Track Rog as he seeks the great spotted stallion in The Root of Glory, the first of Robert Digitale’s rousing new fantasy book series. —Robin Moore
This well crafted story takes you on a mythical journey in a fiercely tribal world with Roj on his quest to capture the spotted stallion and then find the mysterious and powerful Root of Glory. Accompanied by his brother-in-law, Noli, he meets the beautiful Healdin who wields the deadly power of Mara the Vine. Dangerous conflicts between clans endanger Roj and Noli as they are followed by Bibbibib and Weakling, two vicious and evil warriors–casual murderers, who are intent on acquiring the Great Valuable for themselves.
This is a dark tale of adventure and danger with many fascinating, well-drawn characters and the tension of the hunt as Roj, on his hero’s journey, seeks personal fulfillment. Digitale’s writing is superb, as he weaves this tale of intrigue and betrayal in an environment with few protections and manifold fears. I recommend you read this on your Kindle while you keep your lights on. —Charles Markee http://www.charlesmarkee.com/
