Ms. Kearsley retains her place as one of my favorite wordsmiths.
The main character, Verity, is an accomplished archeologist who is asked to join a dig that is following the trail of the Ninth Roman Legion, the 'Holy Grail' of the Roman world. Verity quickly learns that there is more to this dig than just dirt and brushes. She must wrestle with her scientist and personal beliefs while questioning ethics and the truth. Kearsley does an excellent job in painting the Scottish landscapes and its culture in 'The Shadowy Horses.' Her ability to capture a culture through dialogue is phenomenal which clearly shows her experience in traveling the country and her experience with it's people.
There was one scene that did not quite ring true, which is unusual for Ms Kearsley, and I wondered why it was written as it was. I will not spoil the book for future readers by going into detail.
I purchased this book months ago, and was considering another book by Ms Kearsley, "The Firebird". Many of the reviewers stated that it was better to have read this book first. So I dusted it off and finally read it.
Overall I recommend this book to anyone with a bit of imagination, and a belief that there is more in the world than that which can be seen. This is a good read.
