4.0 out of 5 stars Fun horse read, 14 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Mysteries of the Magical Horse (Kindle Edition)
Since I'm really into horse books at the moment, and I do love time travel, I couldn't say no to this fun read. I loved the closeness that Vicky felt to both Red and Jack, it served them well when they went through tough times in their time travelling. They had a lot of fun, and forged friends which would last through the decades (& benefit Vicky when she reached adulthood (that didn't happen in this book but that's all I'm saying on the matter!)). I found the World War 2 era hard to read, just because of the horrors that went on (not explored in Vicky's story).

What I love the most is also an issue which made this book miss having full marks. I enjoyed there being no purpose to why Vicky had to travel, as that so frequently provides a darker story line which I'm not after at the moment. I thoroughly enjoyed learning all the smaller details of living in the different eras, of getting a real feel for the times from a modern perspective.

Equally I wasn't quite keen on there being no purpose because it felt like something was missing. Vicky got to choose where she went with Red/Jack, which is fun and yet there was the potential for there to be a mission for Vicky to fulfil which would justify why she kept time travelling (to find something/someone). Additionally the issue of affecting history wasn't as fully explored as it could have been, especially with what Vicky & Jack ended up doing. .

However, overall this is a fab, fun and pretty much an easy & relaxing read. (Don't worry, I can't think of any more adjectives to use!) I do recommend it for a light read, and if you like horses who are rather special. I'm looking forward to reading more of Vicky & Red/Jack's adventures!

I did receive a copy of this from the publisher for a fair and honest review on my review blog Nayu's Reading Corner
