"BEWARE THE
HORSEMAN!"


The Nextwave of barbarian warriors was invading Xanth from the north, ravaging and destroying as they advanced.  But Mare Imbrium had her own problems.  Ever since she had gained the half soul, the night mare had begun to mishandle her job of delivering bad dreams.  Now the Night Stallion dismissed her, exiling her to the day world with a message for King Trent: "Beware the Horseman!"

She had no idea what that meant.  But that was the way with prophetic warnings - nobody could understand them until it was too late.

Then she met the Horseman.  And she discovered that one who would ride a night mare was a master of bit and spur, and not a man to surrender her:

For the night mare, it began to be all a horrible nightmare!

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
