The Last Tail-Horse: A Companion Story to The Last of the Ageless by Traci Loudin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Last Tail-Horse is a quick and fun short story about two transmelding (shape shifting) brothers. The brothers Dalan and Mishnir have a distinct Native American feel to them as they respect the planet and animals around them deeply. This tale details one day of unexpected events when Mishnir takes Dalan into the woods to learn how to fly in his red hawk form.
First and foremost I have to admit that I was a beta reader for the author Traci Loudin for The Last Tail-Horse, so in all honesty my review may be a bit biased. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first read the synopsis for the novel and short stories for The Last of the Ageless, but I have to say I enjoyed them all more than I could've ever imagined from their synopses. Traci does an incredible job creating realistic characters that are easy to care about and relate to. Dalan is the first of Traci's complex characters readers meet in The Last Tail-Horse. Dalan is a kind caring young man with an incredible gift and heart.
The Last Tail-Horse is like a really good bread at your favorite restaurant. It's more than tasty enough to get you in the door and let me be the first to say the meal is even better than the bread.
