" This is my first Mackall book, and it was well worth the time. Fun YA title that you actually learn from without even realizing it. In this case, I learned several things about horses I didn't know. The main character Dakota is believable and likeable. You're rooting for her through the whole story. Great start to the series! " said.

" I picked this up at our local library thinking my daughter might enjoy it. I picked it up one night and read it. It's a very heartwarming story about a fifteen year old girl finding a home again after a bad family situation that left her feeling abandoned. While she struggles to find her place, a horse helps her find acceptance in this new family. " said.

" An enjoyable book, but I didn't like it as well as Winnie the Horse Gentler, or the Backyard Horses books. I think this book will definitely connect with people, though, especially children who are used to being passed around and not wanted. Even though I don't like this as well as her other books, I look forward to reading the series as it comes out. " said.

" Even though this is a childrens book, it is a very sweet story about faith, love and family. There is a Christian undertow, but not over-powering. Seeing a real family for the first time, through the eyes of Dakota, will no doubt bring a smile to your face. It's worth reading.Dakota finally connects the dots with the Bible verse - "See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are" 1 John 3:1 " said.

" Didn't realize this was Christian lit when I started it, but that didn't impede on the story. But for those looking for wonderful young adult Christian lit, you should really read this one.Dakota is a born runner. She refuses to put down her guard. So she understands abused animals and she finds a soul mate in black fire.This reads a lot like a hallmark movie, but I'm a sucker for one of those if they are well made. " said.

" Dakota doesn’t have any intention of loving or staying with her new foster family. She has runaway from all her previous foster homes and this one shouldn’t be any different. Then she meets Blackfire. Can the Coolidge family and the animals they rescue win Dakota’s heart?I first read this book several years ago and loved it right away. My heart went out to Dakota. You can’t help but root for her. Definitely recommend this book. Good, wholesome (and fun!) reading. " said.

"This was a good book from what I remember, it has been a while since I read it. I had enjoyed the information about all the different animals and enjoyed the characters as well. The only thing I remember that could be negative, would be that the main girl, Dakota, gets involved with some older guys (not sexually), but they influence her to steal, drive without a license, and lie. She does have a conscious, however, and in the end does what is right. But, overall, I remember thoroughly enjoying this book. " said.

"This is really a great book! A book on love, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Even before Dakota arrives at the farm where her new foster family lives, she is scheming her escape. Through email, her long-time friend Neil tells her what she needs to do to make it happen and things are moving along as planned.

As plans are underway, she is blindsided by this family and their individual reactions toward her. Finally the big day arrives. The day when Neil and his friend are suppose to meet her. She soon finds that things she hadn't planned on, are happening and things she planned on….well, you've got to read it.

Touching...
