I enjoyed that I didn't see letters when I read, but heard noises o

Into the Dark is the last book in the Legend of the Great Horse trilogy.

Wonderful end to this series. I am sad to see the end of this series, but will be watching for more from this author.

I was given this boom in exchange for an honest review via LibraryThing.
