Discoveries:  A Kircus Service:   "Meyer's writing is crisp and speedy, crackling with sharp metaphors and rich descriptions."

Julia Ann Charpentie,Foreword Reviews: "Edgy, entertaining, and filled with political stratagem, even a jaded fan of novels set during the Soviet era will not be disappointed. Indeed, Meyer's knowledge and research shine on every page." 

Dorothy Morkis, US Olympic Dressage Rider: "The brilliance with which Sonia Meyer portrays both the magical connection between a horse and rider performing the intricate movements of dressage, and the intuitive love and feeling are to my mind unsurpassed in fiction."

Rene Schwiesow, Massachusetts poet and writer, co-host of Plymouth's Art of Words:   "There is richness to her images, depth in her characters, and fluidity in her narration."
