ebook The Shadowy Horses

The Shadowy HorsesSoldier walking in the fields a ghostly sentinel who guards the bodies of his long dead comradesHere on the windswept shores Verity may find the answer to one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time Or she may uncover secrets someone buried for a reaso My rating 35 of 5 starsI won this book in a contest hosted by Reading Between the Wines and SourcebooksShadowy Horses is centered around Eyemouth which is an actual fishing port located in south east Scotland The story references actual places and events including The Ship Hotel the fish auctions and the Herring ueen Festival While it hasn't actually been verified that Eyemouth is the last resting place of the Ninth Roman Legion this is what the fictional character Verity Gray is drawn to Actual evidence had yet to be discovered only the protestations of an eight year old boy that claims he's seen and spoke with someone who walks the fields a Roman soldier that died over two thousand years agoThe Shadowy Horses is my third read by Susanna Kearsley and while it's not my favorite it still managed to guarantee that this is one author I will be reading everything she writes This gothic tale felt subdued than I had anticipated based off the enticing summary but was still wonderfully intriguing The main character Verity was a strong and intelligent character that was a joy to read about While I didn't see the necessity to include a budding romance into this potentially enigmatic story line it ended up being a lovely addition making this an extremely well rounded story The ending was strangely dramatic and felt out of place from the way I thought the story was going but still left me altogether satisfied I will most definitely be seeking out from Susanna Kearsley
