Dark Horse, the fourth and final book in Dandi Daley Mackall’s Starlight Animal Rescue series, tells the story of Hank, the Coolidge’s biological son. Hank loves all things horses, and is constantly rescuing as many as he can get his hands on. But when a tragic fire burns down their barn, Hank begins to question everything, even his ability to rescue horses; especially when one of their new rescues, a wild horse that got burned in the fire, won’t let him get anywhere close. So when his cousin Catman Coolidge shows up with the rest of the Coolidge clan, and Winnie the Horse Gentler, to help save Starlight Animal Rescue, will Hank be able to put all of his anger and confusion behind him and put his trust in God that everything will work out? I have to admit that I am incredibly sad to see this series end. I highly, highly enjoyed it. This series was my first experience reading any of Mackall’s books, and I have got to say that she has made a fan out of me. I’ve always loved horse books, and I absolutely loved the different aspect that she included of animals being rescued. Not only that, but these books had some of the most loveable characters I’ve ever come across in teen fiction. So if you have an animal loving reader, I would highly recommend this series.
It so good to read about the old "Winnie the Horse Genlter" characters again and get some updates! Of course the main story line is good and God is mentioned many times. In the tale, Winnie is having a rought time in life and is planning on giving up her dream- to become a vet. Meanwhile, Hank is challenged by a barn fire that destroys Starlight Animal Rescue. It has a happy ending and I'm hoping for more books in the series to be published! It is very easy reading.
I've read all the Starlight Animal Rescue books and must say they're great! The books are a wonderful read for any one young or old. If you're looking for a good book to enjoy reading you must try this series!
