I've been wanting to read Shadow Horse for a while now - I've been craving a good horse book, and this one managed to deliver me something that brought back my love of horses. Shadow Horse starts off slowly. I couldn't get into it for the first forty pages, and considering the length of the book, that's a substantial amount. Once we passed that mark - most of which was set up - it picked up rather quickly. I like Jas a lot. Her honest love of the horses was conveyed easily, and I love how most of her worry was focused on her grandfather and the horses and not on her budding relationship with Chase (which, though adorable, I didn't feel the connection much). Hugh was the man everybody loved to hate, and I loved the side characters - both two legged and four legged. My favorite part? The animals. All of them had distinct personalities, which I've found some authors have a hard time accomplishing. It was refreshing to see that - being an animal owner and lover, it's good to see all the personalities in play.

I have just finished reading SHADOW HORSE. I thought it was a very intriguing plot, fast-paced and all that good stuff. Jas, the main charachter, is portrayed well enough that you really want to know who killed Whirlwind. Throughout the book you're left hanging, and the ending, while it leaves some loose ends, is satisfying. I loved the horse, Shadow, too. --------- Okay, now for the bad :( things. (I have to be honest, you know.) I found the whole romance between Jas and Chase really kind of forced and a little... um, dorky. I mean, like when she very first met him the first day, and they kept bumping heads and touching each other and getting all red, and all that. It really was stupid. And throughout the book, I never was very enthusiastic about the Chase-Jas relationship. That is my main complaint. I wish the book would have focused more entirely on horses. For me, at least, some of the phony little romance scenes, if you can call them that, ruined the effect of the mystery. That being said, I'll end by saying that it was interesting and worth a read -- but probably not worth a second read! :)
