As long as flying horses have called Kalivi Mountain home there has been an Auberg to watch over them. But Klara and Karl are the last of the Aubergs and too young to stay on Kalivi on their own. Uncle Alaric insists they come stay with him in Delchin, but there the king wants the flying horses for his war. Can Klara protect the herd that trusted her and save her family legacy?
first proposed here
(it hasn't changed much; I've just added a subplot stolen from Hans Christian Anderson's The Tinderbox,
a family on a boat
that I think I stole from The Deerslayer,
decided that my undead (not-dead? time-travelling?) folk hero and heroine get to make cameo appearances, and I'm trying to figure out how to work a Toad-escaping-from-gaol Wind in the Willows
reference into the boat sequence... basically, it's a mess but on the bright side I have a detailed outline for the first two-thirds of the story and an expectation of how the ending will go down. Whether the ending is SATISFYING, however... XD)
