"Welcome to Black Gate," Miguel spread his arms wide.
Try this instead:
"Welcome to Black Gate." Miguel spread his arms wide.
(A period, not a comma, before the closing dialog quote is correct.)
"Welcome to Black Gate," Miguel said, spreading his arms wide.
Miguel spread his arms wide. "Welcome to Black Gate."
The differences are subtle, but they mean a lot to people who care about grammar. I also feel they should mean a lot to the kids who are reading these books. If they see stuff like this, they will think it's correct. It's not. Here's another:
"I said I don't clean stalls," she looked defiantly up at him.
Again, the following are correct:
She looked at him defiantly. "I said I don't clean stalls."
"I said I don't clean stalls," she said, looking up at him defiantly.
A good copy editor will catch errors like these and fix them.
In this book, even more than the first three I have got to know the equine characters as much as the human ones and I love the idea that Bluebird could have the pony equivalent of ADHD - this seems to fit him perfectly! Other examples of descriptions that developed the equine characters for me were: Bluebird running off with a carrot "sticking out of his mouth like a cigar" and Blue Midnight, having thrown his rider - "then he came back and stood with the rest of the horses, a smirk on his face like he new exactly what he had done and was proud of it".
The book ends all too soon with not one, but two cliffhangers - one with respect to Emily's future as a professional horsewoman and the other about one of her friends .... again I am left waiting, not so patiently for the next thrilling episode ....
