I stepped out of the norm, I bought my first Sci-Fi since age 14, The Green Rider it's part of a triology but I'm going to see if I like it then follow up with the other two if I like it. I just thought it would be a nice change after alot of historical fiction or historical romance.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
