The Island Stallion Races

Our rating: *

Okay….This book took me completely by surprise. When I picked it up, I was expecting a standard Walter Farley. The description on the back even pointed to it, by saying that Steve gets a chance to race Flame, but has trouble at the races with Flame attacking the other horses. That’s all true, however, it failed to mention that his opportunity is derived from two aliens/men from another planet. Yes, you read that right. Walter Farley goes science fiction. That sort of weirded me out. Actually, most of the story is based around the men from another planet, and the race is only in the last few chapters. I only rated it one star, but if you like sci-fi stuff, (and expect it coming!) it might be worth two stars.
