The Last Tail-Horse

After the end of the world, a young shapeshifter learns to open his wings…

When Dalan discovers the last of a mutant species of beautiful, golden horses, he’s forced to make a difficult decision.

This is a short story of approximately 8 pages, or 15 minutes to read. The Last Tail-Horse is a prelude to the novel, The Last of the Ageless.

The themes of brotherhood, maturity, life and death were well done. The significance of the geography and legends were captivating, and I loved the way the animal shifting works.
Ryan Toxopeus, author of A Noble's Quest and A Wizard's Gambit
