On a Wing and a Dare


Oh, so tacky to write my own review of my own book! I had to put it here, though, because I’m so very proud of it. Here is what some of the Amazon and Goodreads reviews say:

Lots to love about this book, and I recommend it. ” Linda Benson

Quite a page turner. ” JP

Both boys and girls will love it! ” Leila Springer

“Love, treachery, FLYING HORSES, and adventure are packed in to this wonderful first novel from Linda Ulleseit. Set in a medieval Wales town called Tremirson; a young woman, Emma, works with two brothers to try and save the flying horses which are the legacy of their town. Navigating the infuriating politics of the adults, and her own confused heart – Emma, with Davyd and Evan, must figure out what is wrong with the herd and save the traditions of Tremirson.
Linda’s passion for storytelling shines in this novel. Highly recommend On a Wing and a Dare. Jeannette Lewis

  1. An absolutely beautiful tale set in the rolling hills of Wales where mythical flying horses thrive. When the survival of the horses is at risk, three friends find themselves struggling to keep them alive.

  2. Beautiful writing, amazing visuals; romance, power, hardship, loss, strength, love and ENCHANTING, FLYING HORSES—this story will capture your attention and your heart. The medieval setting, sets the stage for both beauty and hardship when someone begins to destroy everything that is important to the characters in the world Ms. Ulleseit has crafted.

    Emma, a strong protagonist, must make choices; ones that will define her future in her personal life, her relationships, and the biggest dilemma, a loyalty to her father, or accomplishing her own dreams.

  3. The book is the best fantasy book that I’ve ever read! The author shows amazing emotion out of the characters! I will highly recommend this book to anyone.

  4. This is a fantastic fantasy book! I love the romance between Emma, Davyd, and Evan. I recommend this book to everyone.

  5. I love the book!!! I really like the way the author describes what is going on. This book is so unique! My favorite part is when Evan becomes mean to Emma. At that exact time, Davyd proposes to Emma. I think that the author wants to keep the story interesting this way. I would recommend this to everyone, just like Mark.

  6. I like how the author shows the contrast between the two characters, Davyd and Evan. Evan is brave and adventurous, while Davyd is calmer and thinks things through. But, I believe that Davyd could have easily become the villain instead of Evan. If Emma had not chosen him, he probably would be overwhelmed with the guilt of not having the courage to propose to Emma, and his permanent sadness might make him a grouch. Although Evan and Davyd are very different people, I think they both were possible choices for the antagonist of the story.

  7. I like how the book uses so much descriptive words, that I couldn’t put down the book when I started. I could picture all the flying horses in the sky, the town, and all the other little details described.

  8. In On a Wing and a Dare, I didn’t understand how Morgan died when he took of at the Rider ceremony. Other than that, I loved the book.

  9. In WINGS OVER TREMEIRCHSON, I didn’t understand the dinner is lunch and supper is dinner part. The author used plenty of details. The book is still awesome, I wish I can keep a copy to myself.
