Description

The world is drowning.

Freak storms and devastating hurricanes sweep across the countryside. No one has enough food or firewood--electricity is an option only for the tyrannical Commander--and then the Commander begins stealing young children away. Pup's little brother is one of the missing.

Determined to save his brother, Pup confronts the Commander and finds himself "volunteered" for a special force. One that will slip through the barriers of time into a land where the sun never sets . . . just as another boy from Kinvara did long ago. With the future of both realms at stake, the fairies and humans must take drastic measures to stop the destruction. But not everyone wants the human race to survive. . . .

The thrilling conclusion to the story that began in the acclaimed The New Policeman.

Our customer reviews

In the near future, the world has been destroyed by climate changes. Life is almost impossible in Ireland. The topsoil, for the most part, has been washed away by torrential rain. Commander Aiden Liddy, last seen as a toddler in THE LAST OF THE HIGH KINGS, is now part of an elite governing army that has stockpiled the food and is in charge of distributing and controlling the population. His general, Donal, has an alternate agenda that might destroy both worlds as they know it. With T\'ír na n\'Óg unchanged, the king of the fairies has had an influx of refugees and is not happy about it. The only hope for the two worlds is something that lies within the fairy world. Pup, one of the citizens under rule of the tyrannical Commander, is upset to one day find his brother missing. Thinking that it\'s the commander who took him, he confronts him and gets \"volunteered\" to be part of a special force. The force\'s job is to go into the fairy world and steal something that will save them all. But how can Pup trust a man who may have kidnapped his brother? Will Aiden and Pup find a way to save both worlds? THE WHITE HORSE TRICK is a great fantasy adventure filled with a fast-paced plot and complex characters. Although the global warming issue seems a little heavy, the author does a great job of weaving together a magical story filled with cleverness and teamwork. Readers who like fantasy, adventure, action, fairies, and apocalyptic-type stories will enjoy reading this trilogy in order, beginning with THE NEW POLICEMAN.show more
