The end of this book contains a section with horse safety tips and another section with questions and answers that relate to the story. I feel that these sections are a very important part of the book because they inform young readers about the appropriate way to handle horses and troublesome situations. Geona doesn't always think before acting, so I'm really grateful that the author thought to include an informative section at the back of the book.
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
Vicki Lucas is a multi-published author who has a good understanding of and love for her target audience. She is a Christian writer who diligently seeks to keep her writing clean, age-appropriate, and inspiring. She skillfully paints life-like scenes but, at the same time, draws her readership to deeper truths about compassion, patience, humility, and respect for parents. If you are a parent and are considering this series as a potential quality read for your child, I highly recommend it. This is one series you will not regret investing in.
Mid-school fantasy done well
My hope is that a YA fantasy is coming with solid spiritual truth. Her characters are well done, complex for mid-school, and realistically presented.
The world-building is on a mid-school level, but as an adult I hoped for more details. The story is simple but tightly done with twists and tension.
Spiritual level is vague, 2.5 stars
There’s a god and his son, but they have no real interaction with story. That’s sad, but there’s nothing in error. The family of good guys is basically as righteous as possible given the sketchily presented spiritual truth.
I have no problem recommending this book for your children. I'd say it is targeted at 9-13 years old, but young teenagers will like it also (as will you).

I hope it will tie into Toxic (Toxic is Lucas other book) some where.
