The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

Talat [a wounded war horse] followed her.  When she stopped, or grabbed a tree limb for balance, he moved a step or two away and dropped his nose to the ground and lipped at whatever he found there.  When she moved on, he picked up his head and drifted after her.  On the third afternoon since finding the recipe she was still pacing, not only because she was a slow thinker, but because her four-legged shadow with the dragging hind foot intrigued her.  It was on the third day that when she put her hand out to steady herself against the air a horse’s neck insinuated itself under her outstretched fingers.  She let her hand lie delicately on his crest, her eyes straight ahead, ignoring him; but when she took another step forward, so did he.

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

Yes!  How fun to live in a world of magic and dragons!  I like McKinley’s slow burn fantasy worlds, and hanging out in the royal court with Aerin and Tor would be so much fun.
