Read in April, 2012

Somebody sold me on this book by saying it's about flesh-eating horses that come from the ocean, which isn't the ONLY thing it has going for it. But it's a cool combination of -- I don't know, period piece, mythology, and extreme sports, with a little bit of love story? Also, horse races.

I had a few issues with the prose (can first-person present tense please go away?) and the ending is a little abrupt, but the setting and main characters are particularly cool.
