Publisher's Summary

When hikers Dayna and Eric find a young woman naked, terrified, and speechless, they're sure she's the victim of foul play. But the truth is much more shocking: She isn't human at all. She's Dun Lady's Jess, a horse transformed into this new shape by the spell that brought her and her rider, to whom she is utterly devoted, into this world. Posessed now of human intelligence but still a horse deep inside, Jess desperately searches this world for her master and rider, using her fiery equine spirit to take on human idiosyncracies - and human threats.
Dun Lady's Jess is a blend of adventure, magic, and romance that spans our world and its richly imagined fantasy counterpart. Horse become human, Jess is spirited and intelligent, seeing our world through a unique perspective. Pursued by evil, she must find a way not only to save her rider and both worlds, but also to keep who she has become.

Read Don't Listen!

This book was good but the woman who narrated it for Audible wasn't completely literate. She would have people "mesmorize" instead of "memorize" a spell. Then she read "spellcheck" instead of "spellspeak." There are several times I caught this type of error and I was listening not reading along so there may have been many I didn't catch. You would think if the narrator didn't notice what she said didn't make sense that someone would have edited her mistakes. I am finding multiple problems with multiple Audible books and they won't fix them or respond to emails.

horse sense

Would you consider the audio edition of Dun Lady's Jess to be better than the print version?

Dun Lady's Jess is well written and is a delight for anyone familiar with horses and their foibles. It is a classic sword and sorcery tale with a twist or two to keep even a jaded reader like me interested. It doesn"t hurt that part of the tale is in a town I used to run a restaurant in 40 years ago!

What did you like best about this story?

The ability of the author to "humanize" a horse.

Have you listened to any of Vanessa Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never had the pleasure before. Am going to listen to more of her work.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Lady or Jess? which one?
