Rider (The Rider Trilogy Book 1)
Li-Fang has a way with nature. So she is sent against her will to train as an Agri-Seer, though she dreams one day of joining the Rider Corps like her sister Lixi. Partnered with an arrogant Rider, Daniel Kelso, Li-Fang must forget the wild Hunter Quetz she met by a hidden waterfall near her home, and accept who she is.
Until, that is, a wild Quetz is captured. Li-Fang discovers she can communicate with the creature, a skill no Rider has ever demonstrated, and must now confront her destiny all over again. Will going against convention be worth the cost?
