Blue Ink Press announces the forthcoming release of Ariel's Journey. Written by Doug Kane and Christy Wood, Ariel's Journey will be released on November 1, 2008.
The first of eight books in the Ice Horse Adventure Series, Ariel's Journey (Blue Ink Press, ISBN: 978-0-9817234-0-2, $8.95) is the story of five teenage girls - Kim, Darcy, Emily, Laura, and Andrea - who put their everyday differences aside and set out on an overnight trail ride together in present-day Pennsylvania.
Riding Icelandic Horses - beautiful, fluffy, stocky creatures - the young riders will soon discover that these are no ordinary horses. The Ice Horses hold hidden abilities, wisdom, and knowledge. Through the magic of these exquisite horses, the girls embark on an extraordinary journey and travel back in time 800 years to 1200 A.D. Iceland.
Now centuries in the past, these young women must fight to save the village of their ancestors. As they discover amazing strengths both in the horses and in themselves, the girls must band together to challenge a ruthless enemy, rescue a young princess, and realize their destinies.
Will the girls develop the bond of trust and friendship needed to fight the battle? Can the young princess be saved? Does true love have the power to cross the distance of eight hundred years? As this miraculous journey unfolds, their very lives will depend on the magic only the Ice Horses can provide - and the courage that lives in their hearts.
A mesmerizing story about triumph, spirit, and friendship, Ariel's Journey is an enchanting tale that transcends, time, age, and place. Beautifully written, and resplendent with vivid imagery, Ariel's Journey is filled with action, adventure, charming characters, and the unmistakable magic of the Ice Horses. With its artful blend of fantasy and reality, Ariel's Journey delivers a touching message of hope, perseverance, and love.
