LoveReading View on Dark Horse

Compelling and gripping, beautifully crafted with a narrative that will stick in your mind long after you’ve finished. It’s a powerful story of magic and betrayal in a distant past whilst at the same time has a timeless ingredient to have broad appeal. If you’ve enjoyed Tolkien then you’ll love Sedgwick’s originality too.

Dark Horse Synopsis

A boy destined to lead his clan; a girl raised by wolves; a stranger with a sealed box. These are the elements of this powerful novel, set on a rocky northern coast in a distant time, in a small community who live in dread of the coming of the legendary warrior tribe, the Dark Horse. Told in part by the boy, Sigurd, himself, it is a dark and dangerous story of conflict and betrayal. With its strong sense of time and place and the magic of a primitive people, THE DARK HORSE again confirms the exceptional talent of Marcus Sedgwick.
