About the Book

Epona, a golden Celtic beauty, commanded wind, fire, all the bests of the earth. But she could not resist Kazhak, the sensual Nomad Prince whose stallion swept her away to the farthest reaches of the strange Black Sea.

Even as their passion forged a white-hot bond mightier than Celtic bronze, the Druid Priest of Epona's tribe pursued them. No mortal man, no earthly love, had yet withstood his awesome force.

Inside book jacket: With her national best-selling novel, Lion of Ireland: The Legend of Brian Boru, Morgan Llywelyn was hailed for her combination of brilliance and authenticity in bringing Celtic history to life. ...
And now with The Horse Goddess she brings us a stormy love story that sweeps across the ancient world of the 8th century before Christ. Its heroine is Epona, whose legends finally made her a goddess; its hero, Kazhak, a Scythian warrior, a prince of the wild horsemen of the eastern plains. A woman of the west meets a man of the east in a world still swirling with elemental spirits. As their story opens, Troy is a crumbling ruin and Athens is rising far to the south. Mortal men and women are being turned into gods as tales are told and retold of their extraordinary adventures, and above all looms the awesome figure of Kernunnos, the Druid priest - the Shapechanger - who will become the prototype of the first werewolf as he pursues Epona and Kazhak from the Alps to the Ukraine. If this is not actual history, it has the ring of truth. Based on Morgan Llywelyn's painstaking research, it leads readers to say, "Yes, this is how it must have been." Epona and her people are destined to become part of the permanent landscape of memory.
