Hello Everyone! Today I wanted to share my thought s on a great read! Dragonhorse and Seeker of the Forgotten Knowledge (The Dragonhorse Series Book 1) by Author Denice Garrou!
Blurb: Dragonhorse, a love tale that must endure the transcendence of time and dimensions.
What if who you truly are is lost from your memory just to keep you alive?
Young Shion’s life ripped from her, bound by a prophecy she herself had made a lifetime before, has become a seeker of the forgotten knowledge. She must fulfill her quest to relearn and regain her inherent power, before she can reclaim her life and the memory of her one true love. Her only salvation will be a dying horse and a gypsy schuvani. A thought provoking journey, back to a time when magic was forbidden, gypsies and witches were hunted, and dragons no longer lived . . . or didn’t they?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Denice Garrou is a visionary fiction writer who has spent most of her life following her bliss, by working with the spirit of the horse. She has shared a special bond with the horse and has realized the inner magic for healing and joy they possess.
She has spent 15 years studying energy healing, earth based religions, crystal healing, herbology and shamanism. Spent many hours in a sweat lodge, and had a healing with a Peruvian Shaman, who actually blew flames at her naked body! She has incorporated this knowledge with her knowledge of the horse, finding and experiencing what true magic is revealed.
Denice lives in the Rocky Mountains of west central Colorado. When she is not performing magic, you will find her and her husband hiking or riding the mountain tops, rafting the white waters of the Arkansas River, or just enjoying the magical landscapes of Colorado.
She shares her home with her husband John, her three dogs, Nicco, Guido and Frodo and her one horse at this time, Ciara. But she plans on seeking out another horse needing to be rescued.
Denice did not realize that after writing this first book that it was to be a “saga” and has written book 2 “Sumayah” and book 3 “Talion” (title pending) is in the works. She believes her words are being channelled and has learned to trust this process. Writing these books and getting to know the characters and their stories has been just as exciting for her as it will be for the reader. If you would like to know more about her journey of blood, sweat, and tears with the horse and magic, and how she was inspired to write this story, you can go to the Dragonhorse website www.denicegarrou-dragonhorse.com to learn more about it.
