Okay, so yes, this is technically a kids' book, but so is Harry Potter. This book was awesome. Suspense, intrigue, humor, it had it all. I highly recommend it.

I loved these books as a young reader, enjoying all the time spent in a world where children were empowered, magic was afoot, and horses were the primary mode of transportation. They blended well with the Chronicles of Narnia, the Mists of Avalon, and The Tolkein novels.
