Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Centaur Rising:

 

"Fantasy master Yolen here offers a tale of a half-foal, half-boy." - Kirkus Reviews

 

"A gentle fantasy for tweens." - School Library Journal

 

*"At a time when the publishing world could use something uplifting, Yolen is there with shooting stars, a child's hug, and a nuzzle of a horse's nose . . . Destined to become not only a popular book but one that stands the test of time." - Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

 

Praise for Foiled:

 

“Yolen . . . incorporates the best weapon in her arsenal—fantasy. In Aliera she has created a strong, conflicted, and relatable girl hero.” —Booklist

 

“An enchanting tale. For fantasy lovers, this is an absolute must-read.” —Kirkus Reviews

 

“Yolen weaves her knowledge of fencing vividly throughout the plot, powerfully creating romance, mystery, adventure, fantasy, and drama, all rolled into a strong narrative.” —Publishers Weekly
