My Opinion

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5) This was super cute! I’ve always had a love for horses. Even growing up I had horse art all over my walls. This story brought back my childhood and the bond you can get with these animals.

We follow 4 teen girls who all live on a Scandinavian island that sounds just beautiful. They find each other through their love of horses and slowly realize they each have powers or gifts. These gifts lead them to believe the stories of Soul Riders from legends and that the mysterious happenings are real and from an evil group of people with the worst guy in charge. They have a quest and need to save some horses, people and possibly their island! 

I loved the characters and I loved that it didn’t feel young. The girls are 15 but I feel anyone with the ability to read this long of a book would like it. Even young kids! I listened to this with my 5 year old because of her love of horses. She didn’t have quite the attention span but loved the horse parts. It’s exciting and adventurous and honestly I’d recommend it to anyone.

The only parts I didn’t like were the songs. This very well could have sounded weird due to the increased speed I listen to audios. Also, the 15 seconds of music at the end of each chapter felt long but maybe others would like it. 

The content is super low and I believe anyone with a love of horses and adventure would like this. This is a book I will recommend and buy for years to come.

Thank you to NetGalley (yay for audiobooks!) and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the audio in exchange for an honest review.
