This is a book that stays with you! I read this book just the once, 10 years ago, and it has been a part of me ever since. The story centres around the life of a Celtic girl, Epona. We witness her growing understanding of herself as she develops into womanhood in the tribe and begins to become more aware of certain gifts (namely Druidic powers)that she holds. Her life changes with the death of her father and as she fights against the growing pressure to devote her life to becoming a druid. Eventually to escape the unwanted demands being placed on her, she flees her settlement, escaping with a group of Russian traders. We then follow her journey across the lands and into a new world. Needless to say the story doesn't end there, but I don't want to spoil any more of the gripping plot for you, so I won't go into any more details. Suffice to say that it will keep you enthralled. The book however is so much more than just being an excellent work of fiction. When I read it I thought that was all there was to it. Even so it did instill in me a fascination for the Celtic culture which has remained ever since. When on holiday in Austria shortly afterwards I heard of an old Celtic town, Hallstatt, which was also famous for its ancient salt mines, I began to get very excited. A Celtic settlement at the foot of a salt mountain with the waters of a misty lake lapping at its shores brought back distinct memories of the book I had just read. As I discovered more and more in the town I realised that this, without a doubt, had been used as the basis of the Celtic settlement in the book. As I have learned more about Celtic history over the years I have discovered of course that the Hallstatt Celts were one of the most significant eras and places of Celtic dominence.Read more ›

I finished Horse Goddess recently after not being able to put the book down. Morgan Llywelyn out does herself with this book. She manages to bring to life a period that is shrouded in the mists of time. I hope to hear more from Ms. Llywelyn and I highly recommend this book!

This is a book I could not put down! I read it from beginning to end in one sitting, it was that good. I love all of Ms. Llywelyn's books but this is a particular favorite. I also recommend reading "Druids" as well if you enjoy "The Horse Goddess."

Bought as a replacement for my very old dog eared copy, I first read this book nearly 30 years ago, and have read it so
much that my paperback is falling apart. So I ordered a hardback copy, which is fine, but the dust jacket is in very poor condition, so may recycle that. However the story of Epona is as magical as ever, and although I have learned much more about Celtic Mythology in the intervening years, but Kernunnos is. still a frightening figure in this story. I recommend The Horse Goddess to anyone!

This book is well written and gives a wonderful picture of life in the Keltic tribe and of Epona. It keeps you wanting to read more and the description of rituals and how life may have been then is gripping. Learning about the life of Epona and of her tibe is exciting and makes you think this is how it may have been in reality. For a fiction book this is how you thoink history may have been, I will re-read it as it holds so much that I hold close to my heart.

I have followed Morgan Llywelyn's work for several years now and finally, I got hold of The Horse Goddess. It did not disappoint --- Ms. Llywelyn has a way of taking the reader away, and making her feel and share in Epona's and Khazak's life and adventures. It is a wonderful story, exploring the beginning of the Celtic ways and traditions, even before the magical Irish and British Celts. I can't wait for the next one!
