it was ok

I'm disappointed with this book as in many places it felt choppy and underdeveloped. The main character (Robey-a 14 yr. old boy)was absolutely boring with no personality. Dialogue between the characters did nothing to enhance the story. The Coal Black Horse, who should have been a more important character in the book.....thus the title, was only mentioned occassionally and did nothing to show his importance in the story. The author did do a good job describing the graphic carnage of post-battle scenes.
