“Gryphon Rider” by Cherith Baldry


Story 206/366

A woman warrior is taken prisoner when her mount, a gryphon with black and copper feathers, is killed in battle. The story is reminiscent of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragon Rider stories except Baldry’s heroine is a lot more bad-ass.  The story was written in 1998 and reprinted in 2003. You can read it here on Infinity Plus.  You can read an interview with her here.

See you tomorrow!
