Onyx and Ivory (Rime Chronicles, #1) by Mindee Arnett


Honestly this book is everything I want in a fantasy. And definitely a case of why didn’t I read this sooner?! Good romance, friends who work together, an interesting magic system, ALL THE HORSE LOVE. You can really tell the author is an equestrian – her horse love and knowledge shines through the pages. I loved Kate and Corwin’s relationship so much. It was healthy and wholesome and so satisfyingly done. I loved Kate, Signe and Bonner’s adorable friendship. I loved Dal and Corwin’s friendship. I loved Dal just throwing his hat in with Kate, Signe and Bonner, no hesitation at all. I loved how Corwin stepped up at the end. Just, amazing. So satisfying.


– Love Kate from minute one. She’s amazing and her ability to talk to horses (and other animals) is so cool.
– Corwin’s pretty groovy. I feel quite bad for him so far.
– These two are like instant OTP material honestly.
– Dal is great.
– Bonner and Signe are great.
– The magists give me Children of the Light vibes.

  1. I loved this series! Book two gets a lot darker. That said though I had to reconcile that I went in expecting Green Rider 2.0 and it wasn’t even close, but still a great read. Signe ugh I can’t wait to hear your thoughts after the next lol
