The Queen's Secret
In this second book of the Rose Legacy trilogy death and war have come to the nation. It has been a year since horses were reintroduced to the world and those with the Way have moved into the public light. Thea, Jilly and Finn have been acting as messengers for the King and Queen to prove their worth. Then "the Dag", a sickness, overwhelms the country and seems to start in places where the horses are stationed. They are recalled to the Farm to regroup and to find a cure. Many of the riders become ill and some die. The Queen sends a group of women doctors to the Farm to investigate the Dag. There is also the threat of war from a neighboring country.
This second book in the series was just as good as the first. I loved learning more about the history of the people of the Way and horses. I was a bit confused by Thea's mother's role in everything. She just seems so evil and her motivations are unclear. I can't wait to see what happens in the final book.
