    One of my favourite books ever Loved it Kat was a great character and loved Simon A MUST READ

    There were three parts to this book The dark boring part, the dark annoying part and the dark confusing part OK, there was a part in the middle of that which was alright, when she was at the training place for Silvers, but that was relatively short OK, so picking up this book was a bit of a salute to my younger, horse obsessed self Silverhorse The name jumped out and the small part of me that still squeals when anything horse related comes up was awakened, and I grabbed the book without even really looking at it, then borrowed it and walked out of the library Ehh, big mistake First let me explain what I mean by dark I don t mean gruesome or whatever I just mean the whole thing lacked any brightness or humour You can imagine it raining the whole time, without any sunshine There were no good moments, scenes that make you smile So that made the whole thing not very enjoyable.So we start off with Dark Boring Part Kat lives in an inn with mother, siblings and stepfather I do admit that the relationship between Kat and her step father was somewhat interesting Boring stuff happens Something vague about a silver horse Then, out of the blue Kat s mother randomly sends her away Which brings us to Dark Annoying Part DAP was annoying for two main reasons One was that it had no impact on the story, and was just not neccessary It was a waste of my time to even read this part The other reason was that this was where Kat s temper really came into play And it was the most bloody annoying thing to read She was moaning and complaining about how bad her life was, but it was her stupid fault for losing her temper Even small things that no normal person would think twice about seemed to be the greatest insult in history to Kat It was overly done and it just annoyed me to think that the author actually thought that doing such a thing would help the story along If the bad temper wasn t quite so bad, and if Kat had personality traits OTHER THAN temper, then maybe But her temper defined her whole being and it annoyed me So in between this Annoying part and the Confusing part, there was a part which was actually OK It was still a little pointless, but OK Then we reach Dark Confusing Part This is confusing because A Kat gets kicked out of the Academy for no real good reason and the whole chapter where she s drunk wasn t really properly explained B After that, the whole thing is just random There are two things that would have made this better If the whole World of Breda thing was at the start, so we understood that only women could own land, and the whole family thing and all that, instead of guessing for the first half and not comprehending what was going on And if it was about the Silverhorses For crying out loud, I only picked this book up for the horses part of it And only about five pages were dedicated to them Either call your book something else Kat Is An Annoying Protagonist or actually make it about horses

    A great change from the books that I ve read lately Nothing really supernatural about this book, except that there is a little bit of magic on a few occasions Don t worry, its not one of those books where the author main character goes on and on about their love for horses, or incessant talk of horses This book is written from 12 year old Katriona s point of view I actually didn t realize she was 12 years old until I came across it about a third way through the book Don t worry, the writing style is mature, and so is the character surprisingly Most of the time anyway I found Kat to be a very likeable character, though at times she could be quite rash and distrustful of those around her However given her background, I found it to be acceptable The plot is moderately paced, except during a few fight action scenes where it feels a bit rushed And also, there was one part where Kat goes back to Vale to visit her mother, and it ends there, then continues a few days later There are also a few other parts where I wish the author would expand develop on, such as the scene between Kat and Birch, Kat and Tia s friendship, and Kat and Lu s friendship However, despite a few minor negative points, I found this book to be quite a good read You should definitely read it if you like supernatural fantasy but want a change from all the vampire, werewolf, and fallen angel genre Like I said above, nothing quite supernatural y The world that the story is set in is fictional as well, and you would imagine a sort of middle ages kind of world I am looking forward to reading the sequel, and you should too.

    This book was leant to me for my holiday I thought it was really good I wish I could say but unfortunately I can t remember much of it All I can remember is that it was a fantastic book.

    Overall interesting and enjoyable Another reviewer commented that this novel is similar to Kristen Britain s Green Rider, which I think is true and also why I like both of them I m a sucker for any horseback based, organized unit of messengers, warriors, etc., especially when the horses in question are of some special make or breeding I guess in that way Silverhorse is also similar Mercedes Lackey s Companion riders, which is almost a compliment in itself, but back to Silverhorse.I found a lot to like here the hellhorses, the academy, the various political and government institutions at play Kat s world is well built and it s people well described The intrigues and power struggles were intricate enough to feel intelligent and interesting without getting convoluted and confusing I often forgot just how young Katriona was supposed to be 12 13 years old throughout the novel because most of the time she doesn t come across as juvenile, though she does have moments here and there, which I think is a mark of a good Young Adult novel It s also interesting to see a matriarchal society portrayed where the usual societal economic issues are reversed so that men are fighting for equality and political standing rather than women My only real complaint is that the final confrontation felt a little thin I wanted from Ermine, drama, dialogue maybe, especially with how hard Kat takes the events of the conclusion and her questioning of her part in it later on, which was great insight and would have been pretty emotive if there had been to that final interaction I also wanted to see from Simon in the final chapters How did he take the completion of his mission Was he satisfied for Dorissa s sake Did he receive any recognition for his actions, official or otherwise I m hoping some of these questions are answered in the next book.

    This book took me far too long to read It was slow going for the majority, and when it finally picked up, it ended extremely quickly It was different than I expected, and I would have preferred hellhorse content.
