Publisher's Summary

Seven years after the events in Hunters Unlucky, Sauny is leading her own small herd of ferryshaft with Valla as her second in command. When a creasia from Treace's old clutter carries away a live foal, Sauny and Valla chase after him through the arid wastes and slot canyons of the southern mountains. 

Their task seems relatively straightforward. However, dark secrets lurk in those hills, and the price of rescuing one foal may be higher than anyone imagined.

Unexpected return to Lydian

This was only the second return to the island of Lydian from Hunters Unlucky and tells the story of two major side characters that were still kids at the end of the novel. They have grown up and are now facing adult problems.
From that description, I wasn’t sure I’d be interested in the story, but I was quickly drawn in to the action and adventure that are hallmarks of Ms. Hilton’s writing and the reason I know that I will always enjoy it. Again she doesn’t disappoint.
Just as with Hunters Unlucky, I look forward to sharing this with my kids who I’m sure will enjoy it with me.

As compelling as always

I couldn't believe it was over already!

The tale follows two Hunters Unlucky characters, Sauny and Valla, as they track a missing foal and discuss an important decision regarding their future. The listener is drawn right back into the Hunters world and the changes wrought by the events in that story.

Rish's narration is perfect as always.

Also as always, I add a caution for parents listening with children. Although this tale is not explicit in its mention of violence or procreation, the topics are discussed, and parents should listen first to ensure that their children will be comfortable with this animal tale.

An interesting short story about love and hard decisions

This is interesting story about a kidnapped young person. I really enjoyed the way the author includes character development and complex relationship dynamics about major life decisions as a side story during the course of trying to get out of a tough spot.
