According to the author, this collection of poetry was almost named Ponies and Rocketships and, truth be told, that would have been a significantly more honest title. It lays out the twin obsessions with horses and space that most of the poems held herein deal with. And the Walt Whitman quote makes more sense in that context.

Now, if you did not close out this window already chased away by the mention of poetry, ponies, space and Walt Whitman as much of the populace would be there is a chance you may enjoy yourself with this book. Feel free to pat yourself on the back as you continue.
There are some really good poems here. Poems that clearly could not have come from anyone else but this specific woman at this specific time in her life. However, the good ones are weighed down with a bit too much preachiness. A bit too much blunt force. Far too many that smack of the type of poetry you write to impress your college professors. And when it shines, it can blot out the sunset and the hero on horseback riding into it.

An Inheritance of Stone
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Good potential, but it become to wordy and drawn out. One person found this helpful. The book starts out with a clever premise, but the writer fails miserably to produce a product worth reading on any adult level. If you guess that the villains lose your are right. They are not defeated by clever tactics, but by some improbable scenario that the writer creates to allow the good guys to win. Case in point, after winning, or at least not losing, an epic battle, the hardy adventurers rescue the noble lady who, by the way, has no character development whatsoever starts as a selfish shrew ands ends the same way but fail to retrieve the most important priority the golden or greenish stone stolen by the evil four.
The evil four escape by ship and the adventurers, with the surly noble lady, are wandering in the woods trying to get home. Miracles of miracles a flying ship comes by piloted by a complete stranger and takes them aboard to fly them home.
If you don't care about plot or character development or you just believe in miracles at the last moment, by all means purchase this book. Overall an Enjoyable book. I think too many authors base their characters actions off modern day values and not off the setting they are placed within.
Inheritance | The Gray Havens
Once I got past these issues I did enjoy the rest of the book. I do look forward to the next one. Plot is pedestrian and prose is adolescent. Recommended for all that like fantasy. Also liked that got glimpses at the minds of the evil adventuring party. This is a fantasy, and therefore, the book has a few original points while still being as familiar as an old hammer. But, when the writing fails this badly, it doesn't matter if the author has an original idea or two.
There are lengthy paragraphs filled with stilted monologue, in which characters drift from formal to informal speech. The author's descriptions bloat on the page, with sentences containing more prepositions than content. Modern writing is about showing the details to the reader. This book is a near embodiment of the opposite. Some of this book's descriptions aspire to be as interesting as the GDP of an African country. This book needs serious content and style editing that a rational author should have done on the second draft.
I've read many fantasy books and I must say this is one of the best written books I've read It is not cliche and really voters in depth in each of the characters.
