She’s never even seen a horse before and is not depicted as naturally athletic, but after sitting on it one time she can suddenly lafk bareback at high speeds through a dark forest like some freaking horse whisperer.
Which sucked for me. I enjoyed the plot. Risng, it was so lyrical and beautiful! Lark thought she was just a seer that foreseen the future, but she was mistaken. The beautiful development of the world, draws you in and holds your attention.

I’m not completely ruling out reading the next installment, especially if the heroine reads differently, but my expectations have dropped tremendously.
