About the Author

For older fans, the stories may or may not be somewhat disappointing. The writing is about middle-school level (which is pretty good considering the target audience). At times it is difficult to understand exactly what the author is trying to describe due to poor wording. It is certainly fun to watch our favorite adventure-pony kick butt, though for a supposed professional, Daring Do often misses simple clues or makes rookie mistakes. There were a number of times that I couldn't help but feel the author missed interesting story opportunities, opting instead for overly simplistic and direct conflict resolution. I didn't expect Tolkien-level writing when buying these, but the lost potential is at times distracting.
I'd like to highlight one particular issue I had with this set: The third book appears to have been cut short. The story (no spoilers) spends a lot of time setting the scene, hinting at potential conflicts and villains, only to suddenly cut the story short in the ending pages. It feels as though that book in particular should have been 50-100% longer, and was cut short due to either time or page count. Daring Do goes from "captured and planning" to "escaped and everything is ok" within *three paragraphs.* That's just ridiculous, not to mention the lost potential of 2-3 villains that were hinted at, but never actually appeared.Read more ›
First book in the Thief of Marapore is a fast pace exciting adventure with Daring Do getting a gift from a mysterious strange that shows up at her forest cottage that a request for help in a village dealing with stolen relics and needing a champion to help them find the thief among them.
The 2nd book The Eternity Flower has Daring Do more well known villians from the Friendship is Magic TV series and have a much expect Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade theme to the plot. While Indy went to rescue his dad from Nazis in the movie Daring Do try to rescue her Uncle from her enemies. Just as Indy enemies wanted the cup of Christ for Eternal live so does Daring Do enemies want to be led to the Eternity Flower to live flower.
Final book has Daring Do talk into trying to find the treasure of a cloud city she never knew existed until told by her old teacher Ravenhoof a stallion who talk about in all three books adding to the richness of the MLP universe with many new characters and a previously unknown culture and artifacts. Could Daring Do be the guardian the cloud city legends have been waiting to show up?
While on the plain side compared to what seen in stores for other characters this set also comes with a encased Daring Do figure which box is dressed up in the chest like a fourth book in appearance.
