    Before beginning this review I have a confession to make I chose to read this book for one reason and one reason only It has a horse in it Not just an ordinary horse however it’s a flying horse What girl in their right mind can turn that down? And who doesn’t want to ride a flying horse Coolest thing everThat said I was so caught up in the story by the end of the first chapter that I could barely put the book down Carpenter takes the life of a real life teenager who is transplanted from the city into a small town during high school and gives it one heck of a twist The author has also given the story an entire mythical backdrop all of its own It is not based on a pre existing cultural mythology but seems to have been developed solely for the purpose of this story It is extremely well developed and engages your imaginationThe author uses very vivid descriptions to draw you into the pages of the book without being wordy and long winded You get so caught up in the who’s and what’s of the story that you are pulled within the pages The story also has the ability to make you really stop and think about reality both the reality of the story and the reality that you are livingI must also commend the author for writing such a strong stand alone book Although you can tell that life went on before the story began and will continue long afterwards there are no other books that you need to read to figure out what is going on You don’t feel like you are missing anything and you aren’t guessing to fill in the blank This is an excellent read all on its ownThis story was so uniue and intriguing that I was completely in awe by the end of the story

    Could be enjoyed by middle school grades on up The story is a uniue blend of real life issues and mythology don't let the cover lead you into thinking this is merely a story about a winged horse Tovi is a newcomer to a small town and struggling to fit into high school and her peer group When she finds an egg containing a winged horse it complicates her life even This book does well at showing a character who struggles with doing the right thing even if it means not fitting in with the popular kids And it does so without being preachy or cliche The author is gifted at descriptive writing and the story will grab you from page one I read it in one sitting I don't know if the authors plan to write a book two but it would be uite interesting if they did

    After reading the blurb and an excerpt from this book I had to read it The whole concept of how the horse comes about drew me in right from the beginning and I really like Tovi the main character I appreciate her relationship with her mother and grandmother and enjoyed the ways the cast compliment each other throughout the story I also was very impressed with the introduction and development of the secondary characters I think there was some room for even character development but the story flows smoothly from beginning to end without getting bogged down in too many details

    Original review here on my blogI received a copy of The Skyhorse for an honest reviewTovi is having some major problems since having to move in with her grandmother after she had an accident and fell Tovi’s so called friends are blaming her for many things she didn’t do like kiss one of her friends boyfriends and tattling on them all playing the choking game On the way home one day Tovi finds a whole and then an egg The egg becomes a problem when it hatches and out pops a flying horse Not sure what to do with it a mysterious girl shows up who says she’s a giant and she needs to get the flying horse back to her realm if he is ever to be safe With time ticking down and a mysterious evil shadow trying to steal the horse Tovi must do everything she can to get the horse home even if it means losing her only friend The Skyhorse was a fast paced story about a girl who wants a friend and gets one in an unimaginable way Tovi is a young character and that made her very immature at times but she definitely grow over the course of the story All in all an okay uick read I felt the need to give The Skyhorse two stars because this was another one of those couldn’t get into books The book was just not for me and I think it was mostly the age difference

    I might be a sucker for stories that involve animals Horses being one of the big ones I've always wanted a horse of my own so really enjoyed reading about the adorable Zephyr Look at that little cutie on the cover This was a pretty uick and easy read It's a bit younger than what I generally read I think I would peg it as a younger YAMG the 12 14 range But it was still uite enjoyable The Skyhorse follows poor too tall Tovi She's the new girl in town the one who happens to be almost seven feet tall All Tovi wants to be accepted but it's hard to blend in when you tower over everyone Tovi makes a butterfly wish for a friend and a giant sinkhole opens up underneath her Next thing she knows she's thrust into a strange and wild adventure to return a young winged colt to his home in another worldI found the story flows pretty uickly I enjoyed the writing style and the pace I'm not a huge fan of slow books so this was a good one for me I would most definitely recommend this to a middle grade audience There are a few lessons to be learned like not caving to peer pressure to be cool If you like light fantasy and are looking for a uick read this might be worth checking out for you

    At first glance at the book cover I wanted to know about this book This is a wonderful story full of legends mystery and best of all a winged horse Tovi the main character was a well developed and likable teenage character dealing with normal teenage problems in a realistic way I enjoyed how the author brought the winged horse a creature of fantasy and Tovi together to make it feel as if anything is possible I would recommend this book to anyone who loves horse stories you won't be disappointed
