3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best, 30 Nov 2010

This review is from: Pegasus (Hardcover)
This book introduces us to Princess Sylvi who, as a member of the royal family, will be linked with a pegasus on her twelfth birthday. This is part of an old alliance between the pegasi and humans. The humans defended the pegasi against various threats, such as Rocs, thereby gaining the country the pegasi used to rule and the pegasi live more remotely. The country has not been threatend by these creatures for years, but they seem to be returning. The link between humans and pegasi is hampered by their inability to understand one another and all communication is routed through mages who seem to have a malign kind of power and a strong political say.

Sylvi is able to communicate with her pegasus and seeks to understand what is dividing the two races. She alienates one of the mages. Her father then engages this mage to find out more about Sylvi's unusual ability to communicate with her pegasus and this leads to the not unexpected "cliffhanger" at the end of the book.

Unfortunately I did not find the characters terribly engaging. The mages, though looming threateningly in the background, did not seem to do a lot or be rounded charracters. Sylvi's family also do not make much of an impression. The pegasi are a bit more interesting but perhaps the cast of characters is too large do more than an outline sketch.

Also as the book is an introduction and not an full story there is not actually a lot happening.
It's ok but I had higher hopes.
