While I was a little thrown by the apparent jump 'back' in time into earlier in the series (going off Alec's age, though without many solid statements of that in the books it's not always clear how many years have passed) I really enjoyed the plot line of this one, and getting a feel for Alec's impetuous nature of younger years. The look into horses in the city was fun, and while it was a fairly straightforward and uncomplicated plot, it was a fun and easy read.
This is an exciting story carrying on the legacy of the black stallion. Good storyline and plenty of thrill for all horse fans. It is a little unrealistic however for one person (alec) to have done so many things in the horse business: jockey, breeder, harness racing, steeplechasing.
Steven Farley is the son of Walter Farley, the man who created the Black Stallion and wrote twenty stories about the best-loved literary horse of all time. A freelance writer based in Manhattan, Steven travels frequently, especially to places where he can enjoy riding, diving, and surfing.More about Steven Farley...
