Product Description

Review

The One Dollar Horse is certain to be huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and K M Peyton. (BOOKS FOR KEEPS)

There are many twists and turns but the plot is easy to follow and gripping, I would recommend this book for girls aged from twelve through to adult. The author has a flowing style and an art for bringing her characters to life. (NEWBOOKSMAG)

Lauren St John's The One Dollar Horse is rare among pony books in setting its dream-come-true story in inner-city London... Writerly, full of equestrian knowledge and rich in character - not least of the horse - this is also a tale of first love, and is a handsome package with deep pink-edged pages. (Nicolette Jones THE SUNDAY TIMES)

...one of the best characters in this thrilling rags-to-riches tale is Storm Warning. You can't help but identify with this courageous animal and St John makes you feel the thrill of what it must be like to jump over a fence on such a horse with such heart and soul. No nagging doubts, this book's a winner. (Martin Chilton TELEGRAPH ONLINE)

Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. (BOOKS FOR KEEPS)

Book Description

What if victory cost you your life? The final novel in THE ONE DOLLAR HORSE series by prize-winning Lauren St John, in which Casey and Storm compete at the Burghley Horse Trials.

I don't read a lot of books - but grabbed one of my daughter's books to read on holiday - the first in this triology The One Dollar Horse - I was gripped from the first page, finished it in a day. The second book, Race The Wind and then this one, Fire Storm were just as good. Totally recommend this triology. The books do need to be read in the correct order and they are all about one horse and its owner - so an interest in horses would probably help. Buy them!

I LOVE this series. The Story shows that you don't have to win to be a winner but with a gripping plot. The only thing that let this book down was the rushed ending- as it was the third and last of the One Dollar Horse series I felt that the end shouldn't have been so 'brief' and 'sudden'. But this is still an amazing book and Lauren St John is an amazing author!

I had read the other 2 books in the series and just had to buy this one. It is a thrilling story and makes you feel as if you are Casey, riding storm. It also makes you want to shed a few tears as it has an underlying romance to it. I have really enjoyed this book and wish there was another one after it.

This horse trilogy is the best thing that I have ever read in my life! It is exciting, thrilling, romantic and sad from the beginning to the end. I have always dreamt of having a horse and this book is probably the closest I'll get, but I'm happy! THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!!😁😁😁😁

It was really nice to step back into the world of Casey, Storm and Angelica Smith. Fire Storm tells the story of Casey Blue as she prepares to go for the Grand Slam title and win the Burghley Horse Trials with her horse Storm Warning, and the help of her slightly eccentric but utterly devoted trainer Mrs Smith.

Straight away there's an awful tension in this book. There's a lot of issues going on that just never happened in the other books. Casey is riding a horse other than Storm, and you really miss the special connection she has with him and the uncertainty she has when dealing with Roxy is so unsettling. Mrs Smith's health issues, which we learnt about in the previous book are getting worse and making her sacrifice some time from Casey's training - and her student doesn't even know she's sick.

And then blonde, perfect Kyle West walks in, give three bits of advice and Casey is off to join him in his stables. Obviously, not all is as it seems.

I enjoyed Casey's evolvement as a rider, and it was really great to see her connect with Roxy eventually and want to buy her. However, for me, the sub plot was just very bizarre. I also hate the trope of boy sees girl kissing another boy and doesn't wait five minutes to let her explain (or vice versa).

The ending definitely seemed rather abrupt for me, I was kind of shocked when I turned the page and realised there was no more. I can't help but be disappointed with Casey's decision, overall it was rather an odd one even if she didn't want to compete Storm anymore. It felt like she was kind of throwing away her childhood dreams just when they became an actual reality. It just wasn't extremely well-rounded in my opinion.

Lauren st John is amazing, this book is so brilliant I would recommend to anyone. It begins with Casey Blue getting herself into an awful mess and every chapter brings new problems and ends with a cliffhanger. It ends beautifully and if you buy this book you will understand why I love it so much.
