The Gryphon
I left Valdemar and now I'm in The Land

LOL! I have to wait for my local Library to purchase some more Mercedes Lackey books in the Valdemar series.....

So, I went back and began re-reading the "Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever" series by Stephen R. Donaldson.

While I'll miss the "Companions" of Valdemar (the special white "horses" that the Heralds ride,) I'll have the Ranyhyn (the white-starred special "horses") of The Land that the Bloodguard and some of the Lords ride.

Both authors have regular horses in their book series, but they also have these other, more gifted more special animals that LOOK like horses but better.... I've loved horses my whole life, so naturally I dream of riding ones that might be a bit "...more...."
