really liked it
I own a copy

I really enjoyed this book. I went into it with the mindset of a middle school female reading this book. If you did not know much about the care of horses, it explains all the care that goes into horses. If you have had horses in the past, it brings back wonderful memories of the magnificent animal.

I loved how this book presented fascinating history in an exciting and suspenseful way. I am not a fan of reading history but Royce brought history to life with this book. I will remember many of the details in this book longer than I have ever remember any of the history books I read in school.

The only complaints I have of this book is that I did not really understand the importance of the short section Royce title "Escort" and I felt like Royce could have made the ending more of a cliff hanger in preparation of the second book.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to pre-teen girls. I think they would find it entertaining and learn something at the same time.
