When hikers Dayna and Eric find a young woman naked, terrified, and speechless, they're sure she's the victim of foul play. But the truth is much more shocking: She isn't human at all. She's Dun Lady's Jess, a horse transformed into this new shape by the spell that brought her and her rider, to whom she is utterly devoted, into this world. Posessed now of human intelligence but still a horse deep inside, Jess desperately searches this world for her master and rider, using her fiery equine spirit to take on human idiosyncracies - and human threats.
Dun Lady's Jess is a blend of adventure, magic, and romance that spans our world and its richly imagined fantasy counterpart. Horse become human, Jess is spirited and intelligent, seeing our world through a unique perspective. Pursued by evil, she must find a way not only to save her rider and both worlds, but also to keep who she has become.

The story evokes great imagery and has a lot of magical conjecturing. However, it is sometimes hard to understand and to follow. Not quite sure about the ending. Overall, quite enjoyable.
This book was good but the woman who narrated it for Audible wasn't completely literate. She would have people "mesmorize" instead of "memorize" a spell. Then she read "spellcheck" instead of "spellspeak." There are several times I caught this type of error and I was listening not reading along so there may have been many I didn't catch. You would think if the narrator didn't notice what she said didn't make sense that someone would have edited her mistakes. I am finding multiple problems with multiple Audible books and they won't fix them or respond to emails.
Yes, especially if they were a preteen-teen young lady who liked horses and magic
Well written story about a horse (Lady/Jes) who becomes a human when her rider Carey invokes a spell-stone (in order to save them) as they go over a ridge and become displaced from their dimension into ours. Carey is the head rider of the Anfeald couriers and Lady is owned by Arlen of Anfeald, a senior wizard of Camolen whose discovered a spell for crossing dimensions, but needs help creating a check-spell to prevent other wizards from exploiting other peoples/places. Confusion & Villains pursue, kind humans help Lady & Carey, and the story is off. Really a gentle read/listen
