REDUCED KINDLE PRICE
Raised as a servant in a world dominated by beasts, Kyra is taught the way of survival alongside the children of royalty. When her family is given its freedom, she experiences life always on the run from other beasts that would capture and enslave her. And when her parents go missing, she has to learn to rely upon herself and her horse, Storm.
Even with her wiles, she is finally captured and sold into slavery in the kingdom of the Holstein, a master race of bovine. Fortunately for her, she is treated well. When she shows her abilities, she earns the respect, and ear, of her Master, Prince Meateus.
This trust is crucial when an expedition, led by Prince Meateus, is taken across lands unknown to the bovine, in order to find the Lost Cities of the race of humans. But there is one among them who would see the Prince meet up with an accident, and the expedition fail. With members of the Cat and Canine races among the adventurers, it seems hardly likely that such a fate could befall the Prince.
However, as they make their way along, discovering new worlds and learning new things, his life (and those of others) are saved time and time again by the quick-thinking Kyra. And the beasts discover that there is an intellect still alive in the race of human.
