The Finest Choice

by Jean Rabe

They were the Finest Creations - mystically forged creatures of perfection sent by the creators to aid the Fallen (mankind). Though they resemble ordinary horses, the Finest are highly intelligent, capable of communicating telepathically, and completely moral. They are assigned to bond with individuals of great potential and then protect them from harm while guiding them along a path of virtue.

Gallant-Stallion has found his charge, a young girl by the name of Kalantha, whose brother is soon to be king and pawn of a deceitful and murderous bishop who covets the royal power and has allied himself with creatures of the dark arts. The Finest has successfully removed her from the bishop's influence but now must contend with the other temptations of the world - the lure of power, the mystery of learning and knowledge, and the intrigue and freedom of adventure and independence.

The Finest series combines elements of Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar series with C.S. Lewis’s Narnia for an inspiring tale of mystical intrigue and the crucible of morality for mankind.
