Windmaster Legacy, Book 2 of my fantasy series, The Windmaster Novels. To set, the scene, Lord Dal and his mount, the gray falaire stallion, Tairneach, were in search for the captured Lady Ellspeth when the stallion snuffled a warning. Two squads of archers stepped from the concealing trees. Dust off to the left indicated mounted men galloping toward him in a flanking maneuver. When a third group of men on horseback raced into view, Dal realized he was being herded to the edge of the plateau. And now the SundaySnippet.

Tairneach trotted two steps toward the edge, then spun on his haunches to face the oncoming force. His commands were clear.
“You’re sure about this?”
Taer’s trumpeting drowned out the screeches of the circling birds.
Dal slid his sword back into its scabbard. Lightning bolts flew from his fingers into the mass of men. Commending his fate to his ancestors, he draped himself over Taer’s neck. With a wild neigh, the stallion spun and raced to the cliff’s edge. This time he did not stop, but leaped into space.
