    This is a short (in comparison to her other novels) and lovely story about a stallion and his rider, both of whom are not what they seem to be. If you've read any version of the original Arabian nights you'll recognise the fatal mistakes both make and the eventual triumph and happy end. Being written by Judith Tarr, these days owner of a herd of Lipizzans (http://dancinghorse.livejournal.com), means that all the horse lore is correct and here she picked the time of the Crusades and shows it from the side of the Arabs (if you've read Alamut you've had a taste of similar things). This story isn't as dark as Alamut I thought, and it has a less extraordinary heroine, but the one we get is an exception for her time and place and the hero learns to appreciate her the hard way, which is all to the good if you ask me. I still own the first edition, but I couldn't resist minimising the wear and tear of the paperback by buying the ebook - not to mention the revision, introduction and bonus... More > short story.
