“Phantom Stallion: Wild Horse Island #6: Sea Shadow” is a wonderful book about a 13-year-old girl named Darby Leilani Kealoha Carter and her half-wild mustang named Hoku (which means star in Hawaiian), who live on the island of Moku Lio Hihiu with Darby’s Grandpa. When earthquakes start shaking the island everything changes. When one creates a tsunami just off the coast the wild horses of the island are in trouble. After getting stranded on a dangerous hilltop, it’s up to Darby and her friends to save the herd. But, after the lead mare, Medusa, is injured she refuses to go a shore.
Will Darby and her friends be able to save Medusa? You’ll have to read “Phantom Stallion: WildHorseIsland #6: Sea Shadow” to find out. Terri Farley did an excellent job on “Phantom Stallion #6.” I have read many of her books before and I thought it was interesting how she incorporates characters from her previous books into “Phantom Stallion #6.” It isn’t even hard for a reader to understand the words she writes in Hawaiian because; she has an index in the back that tells you what they mean.
I would say “Phantom Stallion: WildHorseIsland #6: Sea Shadow” By Terri Farley is a book for any reader, especially anyone who loves horses. I loved this book and hope to be able to read more in the series of “Phantom Stallion: WildHorseIsland.”
