The Shadowy Horses: A Roman History Mystery

The nigh invincible ninth Roman legion marched to fight in the Scottish Borderlands and then mysteriously vanished without a trace. Archeologists have searched for centuries to find their final resting place, but the site still remains as mysterious as the Holy Grail.

Enter Verity Grey. Lured to the Scottish Borderlands by the promise of the dig to end all digs, Verity becomes embroiled in the hunt to uncover the secret of the ninth Roman legion.

With a child psychic, steamy ex-boyfriend, eccentric but lovable millionaire, and a cast of colorful characters, Verity works to find the truth behind the legend of the lost legion.

Set against the stormy beauty of the Scottish countryside, Susanna Kearsley’s The Shadowy Horses spins her usual literary magic with a tertiary romance plot line.

Often compared to Daphne du Maurier, Kearsley blends history, action, and romance with a touch of the supernatural. Like a cup of Häagen-Daz ice cream, Kearsley’s The Shadowy Horses is a decadent treat which goes down smoothly and leaves you begging for more.

In putzing about on the internet, I discovered a very entertaining guest blog on “My Friend Amy” by Susanna Kearsley about her book The Shadowy Horses. Check it out:
