    Darcy

    I first saw Horse Diaries advertised in a magazine and as I love horses, got hem at the library. First sentance, I was hooked! At that point only the first two were out, so I read them over and over. Then I saw that Koda was out. I got it, and read it halfway. I ran out of time on my loan, and sent it back to the library. Late last year I went to B&N. Lo and behold! They had Koda, Maestoso Petra, and Yatimah. I remembered my earlier love for them and bought those three. I ordered Elska, Bell's Star, and Golden Sun. I had all six read within a day. When Risky Chance came out, I earned enough money to buy it. When Black Cloud came out, I got it for a birthday present. I pre-ordered Tennessee Rose, and read it within a night. I plan to keep getting these books my whole life! I highly reccomend this series!!! - A Huge Fan.

    TO MUCH DYiNG AND KILLING!!!

    I am a 10 year old girl that loves horses and loves to read horse books. I read the first few chapters of this book, put the book down, and decided not to read/finish the book because there was so much dying and killing in it. I was very disappointed when I read it and I don't reccomend this book for people my age.
