I loved the setting of this story. The images were so vivid that I actually found myself closing my eyes and picturing the beach, the sea, and of course the magnificent and utterly terrifying water horses.
Puck and Sean are two amazing characters. They are both strong and courageous. Each has their personal battles to fight and while there is some romance, it is not center stage. I enjoyed the interactions between the two, and while I love a good romance, I didn’t feel like the story needed an overload of it. While training for the race, Puck’s inner strength and determination shines through as she meets obstacles along the way. Sean’s experience and respect for the horses makes him a tremendous competitor and a valuable friend to Puck.
This book is different and not typical of what seems to be trendy right now, which as a reader is refreshing. I’ve been recommending this one to everyone I can. This book is way more than a horse race, I think there is a little something for everyone in this one.
