Publisher's Summary

For fans of Black Beauty and The Black Stallion, ages 10+

Located deep in the Canadian wilderness, Snowfields Academy is the premiere school for equestrians from around the globe. With only a handful of students admitted every year, only riders who have the potential to win world-class tournaments are invited to attend.

Shaman, a stallion new to Snowfields, has proven to be too much for the school. He’s too wild, too dangerous, and too unpredictable for even the most experienced riders on campus.

Unexpectedly, the one person who can calm him is the girl least likely to become a student at Snowfields. Zoe is a world-renowned musical prodigy who is only on campus to support her BFF as she takes the riding test required of prospective students. Zoe doesn’t ride and is more comfortable performing solos in sold out music halls than she is around horses.

But there’s an inexplicable bond between Shaman and Zoe, from the beginning she dreams about the horse and his life before and after he was captured - and abused - by “the predator man.” Within days, she’s run away from home to help Shaman escape and reunite with his herd. It’s a daring rescue mission with twists and turns that Zoe and Shaman aren’t prepared to face.

Will the risks Zoe’s taking ruin her musical career or introduce her to a whole new way of life?

Entertaining and cute

Entertaining and cute. Realistic - most kids don't think through the consequences, but everything turns out alright. I'm an adult who likes good childrens books and movies. I don't like all the violence in adult books. Definitely recommend this.

Why no offer more English translations

This is a wonderful easy listening story. Why doesn't Audible plus offer more English translations by this author?

Good story to relax the pace

I came across this one, when looking for something to unwind and relax a little, that it was about horses was definitely a plus, I just love stories like that.

It was a very nice good little story, with a little of drama and lots of fun.

This one is perfect for middlegraders and to relax a little with a story that's not overly dramatic but it has this beautiful lesson about friendship and courage.

Uneven story

Enjoyed the plot, but not the mild profanity. It was not age appropriate, or even particularly fitting with the characters. I also struggled with the main character, a young preteen/teen, referring to adults, such as her parents and a teacher, by their first names. Again, it just didn't fit with the portrayal of the character, so it was rather jarring each time. The main character is a famous flutist, and the performance would have been improved with the addition of some music throughout the story.

Horse part is nice, having to give up music forever in exchange makes no sense

Main character is internationally acclaimed for music

Best friend disses the accomplishment like its nothing, pressures her to do what friend wants.

Boy crush disses her accomplishment as well

Main char gives up music entirely, vows never to play again. Why?? It is entirely possible to play music after riding a horse. She could have had career and horse, lessened the career, or at least played for pleasure.

this story glorifies very dangerous choices

as someone who has worked with horses I can say I would not want ANY person reading this who is not already an experienced horse person who understands equestrian safety. from choices I this that could seriously hurt a horse to choices that would in real like have very likely landed the main character in a morgue drawer.
