From acclaimed author Diane Lee Wilson comes another gripping historical adventure. Set during the height of the Assyrian Empire, To Ride the Gods' Own Stallion is an action-packed modern classic featuring a young boy sold into slavery by his father. A story of outsiders, self-discovery, and the courage to become something great.

Better that you'd never been born, his father had said.

Soulai is not brave like his sister. Nor is he a skilled craftsman like his father. And when Soulai accidentally burns down his family's home, his father gives up. He sells Soulai into slavery for five years to pay off the debt.

While working in the royal stables, Soulai meets a horse unlike any other--a stallion named Ti. Like Soulai, the stallion is owned by the spoiled young Prince Habasle. But unlike Soulai, the stallion is respected by all and thought to be marked for glory by the gods. Soulai realizes what he must do to escape his enslavement--befriend the stallion to prove that he's bound for his own land of greatness.
