Fast-paced and fun, I thought this was better than the first book in the series. I'd definitely read more by this author.

Sam and the Phantom aren't safe yet. They slipped out of Linc Slocum's attempt to claim her old horse as his own, but he's not giving up. When his newly purchased racing Appaloosa goes missing, Linc puts out a reward for his capture.

Sam is certain her lost colt isn't to blame, and there's a new challenger stallion loose who might be the culprit. With people desperate for the reward money and willing to let the legality of harassing mustangs slide, Sam needs to act fast to keep her horse free.

These aren't the most realistic books, but they were my favorite when I was a kid. Now that I'm rereading them as an adult, I'm surprised by how much I still love them! There's so many good themes in this series. Sam's relationship with the Phantom is center stage, of course, but this book also deals with new friendships, high school rivalries, the struggle of family money problems, trying to be independent while dealing with worrying relatives, etc. I really love that Sam's confidence has been ...more
Started really strong but the end was kinda like oh okay... :(
Just felt rushed, but I love the characters to death and I've read later books back in high school so I know it gets really good later on so :) now comes the hard task of getting my hands on the rest of these rare books :) :)

Another good book in this series. I can't believe I never read these when they first came out. I will keep reading them as I come in contact with the novels, as even though the reading level is below me, I am now invested in these characters.

I really enjoyed the scene changes and the plot development. It’s also nice to see a main character go through small amounts of change and yet still make mistakes to show how human and flawed she is. Looking forward to the next one.

I thought that it was a great book because of how the author wrote it because you get to know what is happening with everyone. I was also drawn in because there is always something going on and it never stops moving. I also love the characters because they all have different personality traits that make it fun to read.

This was my favorite book series as a kid (well, and Nancy Drew, but she didn't normally ride horses). I reread this book recently and still love it so much. In this second book, Sam ends the summer with some of her usually blunders and finally enters high school. *gasps* As you can guess, the Phantom is in danger once again. Slocum has in for the beautiful wild stallion and Sam is determined to save her horse and keep him on the range. I think what I loved best about this book is that Sam dabbl ...more

Mustang Moon by Terri Farley is very interesting and is one of my favorites of her series. Since it is only the second book, you still have to become accustomed to the characters and setting. Each chapter is more intriguing than the last, and it definitely keeps you wanting to read.

A mustang is stealing local ranchers' horses, and when one rancher puts a price on the stallion's head, Sam must try to save him. In addition, this book was very interesting and exciting to read. I absolutely love Terri Farley's books.
Rena Sherwood
Cute but predictable and ho-hum with the schoolroom drama. The author apparently is not aware of what an "endurance stallion" should look like. Also gives a really rose-colored-glasses view of the BLM, which has proven since the 1970's that they know f-all about horses.

I didn't really like the book but it's still really great and it's about one girl named Sam and a hourse named Phantom were the best of friends, but when the Phantom is accused for stealing, Sam tries to prove that he's innocent. Little later there's a reward for capturing the Phantom.

A nice book. It was slightly not my type though. I enjoy horse books but lets just say I've read better :) I'm a massive horse lover and I love horse books but I wasnt too impressed with this one. I still recommend it though :)
Good to pass time. Can be interesting/exciting-but def. for horse freaks!
