“No fantasy writer working today has a defter touch with Irish magic” (Morgan Llywelyn, author of Lion of Ireland) .

Set against the colorful and magical backdrop of Ireland,  The Grey Horse  chronicles a time when the Irish people suffered under harsh English overlords who sought to destroy their culture and way of life. In the Irish town of Carraroe, a magnificent, completely grey stallion appears. The horse brings with him the promise of better times and magical happenings, for he is actually the shape-shifted form of Ruairi MacEibhir, journeyed to such a time of danger in order to win the hand of the woman he loves.

Just a grand old tale, worth both the telling and the time spent enjoying it. I am sure this will be a yearly reread for me. What a fine uplifting sort of a yarn.

Couldn't put it down.

No big mystery from the reviews this is a story about a pooka and the deeds he does to win the heart of the strong-minded irish lass he woos. Part romance, part suspense and part fairy tale, this book is a very nice read for say, fans of Patricia McKillip or historical fantasy.

I THINK this was an old Irish tale of love amongst pucas best I could figure. Made it half way through and simply lost interest.
