Marooned on a strange planet beset by unnatural creatures, Cassidy hopes to regain her memory by finding the Warden of Horses, reputed keeper of the Memories of the mythical Slow World. This description may be from another edition of this product.
This second book in the Slow World series reminds me of Fantasy books like The Shadowleague trilogy by Maggie Furey. She's on a quest and each book in the series is like a stepping stone across the river. Each time she finds what she thinks is the answer, it turns out to lead to another question. So off she goes again to the third and final book, "The Alchemist of Time". I'm really enjoying the series and am very curious as to what is actually going on. From the back cover: Cassidy had no memory of who she was or where she had come from. But the nagging suspicion that she had come from some other world was growing more profound each passing day. Her one hope of restoring her memory and returning home lay with the Warden of Horses, a man reputed to hold the key to the Memories of the mythical Slow World. But Cassidy had no idea how to find him. So when she was forced to flee from the farming village that had taken her in, Cassidy went east, toward the Iron City where she hoped to find help. And as the days of travel lengthened into weeks, she began to realize that the terrible wraithlike creatures that had mysteriously been wreaking havoc across the countryside were following her - and growing stronger. But for all the destruction that dogged her heels, nothing would compare to the revelation of her meeting with the Warden - a meeting that would shake her mind to its very foundation and set her on yet another journey to save not only a life in two worlds, but perhaps those very worlds themselves...
