A New York Times and National Bestseller

Rain is a girl with a certain destiny, living in the ancient time of blood and war, raised on mares’ milk, nurtured by the strength of her Amazon sisters. A girl of power, she rides her white horse as fiercely as any demon. Rain – dream rider, warrior, queen-to-be. But then there is the foretelling and a black horse appears in her future. Rain begins to hope for a different life beyond constant war. She wonders about the forbidden world and the words her mother and sisters never say: Mercy. Men. Love. Peace.

This suspenseful story of a girl becoming a woman within an Amazon culture is based on myth and on archeological finds of warrior women in Russia and the Ukraine.

“Hoffman’s prose eloquently expresses the beliefs and rituals of a lost civilization and offers a sympathetic portrait of a young leader who chooses kindness over cruelty.”
Publishers Weekly

“A subtly inflected characterization… holds the center of this high-action survival and battle drama.”
