BOSTON, MA – November 11, 2011 | Into the Dark, the third and final book of The Legend of the Great Horse trilogy by John Allen Royce, arrives next Summer 2012 to conclude the journey of a modern-day teen lost in history.
Publication is scheduled for the Summer Solstice (June 21st). Into the Dark completes the award-winning series, which offers a fresh and original look at the colorful role of horses in civilization. The tale follows the struggles of a young woman carried unwillingly through history, who uses her knowledge of modern horsemanship to survive humanity’s past.
The trilogy’s first volume, Eclipsed by Shadow, earned a Library Journal recommendation and won national awards including the Eric Hoffer Award for best Young Adult Fiction. Recently-released Book #2: The Golden Spark (2011) has already been named an Independent Publisher Highlighted Title and nominated for a Written Arts Award.
The author is a horseman over 20 years of experience in competitive riding, training horses and coaching students. Mr. Royce explains the enduring popularity of horses: “Horses have been with mankind since the beginning—the history of horses is the history of civilization.”
