Waiting on Wednesday (24)

Author: Robin McKinley
Title: Pegasus
Series: None
Genre: YA
Release Date: November 2nd 2010
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Edition: Hardback

Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

But it’s different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close—so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo—and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.

Sounds interesting. I love Greek mythology and this has an interesting twist to it.

Great choice on this one... the Greek mythology angle really makes it sound interesting. I love the name and cover as well.
