A gifted princess. A special horse. A quest for the truth.
At sixteen years old, Cassia would rather spend her days in the royal stables than in the royal court. But as the eldest child of King Robet and Queen Sarahann she obediently performs her duties as the Princess of Karah. Her safe world changes forever when her father is murdered in the neighboring kingdom of Vespera. Cassia grapples with his loss as her mother prepares her for her new role as queen. Her first task - she must travel to Vespera to marry a prince she barely knows to fulfill the treaty her father signed just before his death. Nothing is as simple as it seems with political intrigues and unusual powers shadowing Cassia on her search to find out who killed her father and why.
Authors I Admire
By Angelia Almos
It's hard for me to pick single authors I admire as I feel like the list changes every year as I stop reading one author or discover another. So here are a few off the top of my head.
Suzanne Collins - I seem to be one of the last people I know to read The Hunger Games trilogy. :-) But it certainly was worth the wait. Suzanne creates compelling characters, an intriguing plot, and a suspenseful atmosphere where you have to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. I'm pretty sure her use of present tense helped a lot with that.
Jayne Ann Krentz - Jayne is an auto-pickup for me right now. Mostly her contemporary or futuristics, but I do also enjoy her historicals. I admire how Jayne can write in multiple genres with ease.
Linnea Sinclair - I love her characters and the scenarios she has created between her heroes and heroines. I really admire her skill with Deep POV and will often turn to her books to refresh myself on that skill.
Carolyn Keene - Technically, many, many authors are Carolyn Keene. But Nancy Drew books influenced me so much and made me into a lifelong reader. What isn't to admire about a series of books featuring a strong heroine who has inspired who knows how many readers since the very first Nancy Drew book hit the stands.
Joanna Campbell - In thinking about horse books, I can't not mention Joanna who created and wrote many of the Thoroughbred series. This middle-grade series was a particular favorite of mine when I was a teenager. Joanna knows a lot about horses and I admire all the horsey detail she wove within each book.

Angelia Almos' love affair with horses began when she was five years old and talked her parents into her first riding lesson. Horses have always been a huge part of her life. The initial idea behind Horse Charmer came to her when she was fourteen. The image of a teenage girl riding her horse through a meadow appeared. Who was this girl? Where was she going? What was she running from? Those questions led to the creation of Horse Charmer.
