The Secret Horses of Briar Hill by @megan_shepherd @DelacortePress #BookReview

 
 
There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. In the mirrors that line its grand hallways, which once belonged to a princess. In those that reflect the elegant rooms, now filled with sick children. It is her secret.

One morning, when Emmaline climbs over the wall of the hospital’s abandoned gardens, she discovers something incredible: a white horse with broken wings has left the mirror-world and entered her own. 

Tucked into the garden’s once-gleaming sundial, Emmaline finds a letter from the Horse Lord. He is hiding the wounded white horse, named Foxfire, from a dark and sinister force—a Black Horse who hunts by colorless moonlight. If Emmaline is to keep the Black Horse from finding her new friend, she must collect colorful objects with which to blind him. But where can Emmaline find color when her world is filled with gray?





Megan Shepherd grew up in her family s independent bookstore in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The travel bug took her from London to Timbuktu and many places in between, though she ended up back in North Carolina with her husband, two cats, and a scruffy dog, and she wouldn t want to live anywhere else. She is also the author of the Madman s Daughter trilogy and The Cage.

This one is going to be a die hard book for todays younger middle grade crowd.  It will be one of those well worn copies that the kids read and reread many times.  I was so drawn into this little middle grade book and well I just couldn't put it down.  I can't wait for my younger daughter to learn to read so she can enjoy this one on her own.  I so can't wait for you all to read this amazing wonderful story!
