Fire Storm based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Once again Barnes and Noble only has the German version? Bizarre! Fire Storm, the third book in the One Dollar Horse eventing trilogy, starts after Casey and Storm's Rolex victory. Casey is expecting to have countless offers of horses to ride after winning back to back 4**** events, and is surprised to find that no one steps up. Apparently the fact that Casey has never ridden any horses besides Storm (and had a handful of lessons on Patchwork, the lesson horse at Hope Lane) doesn't inspire confidence in other owners. I think it might have something to do with the fact that Casey and her coach Mrs Smith never seem to school over fences but that's just me. Casey actually acts kinda bratty and entitled in this book. First, despite Mrs Smith warning her that there are strings attached, she signs a contract to get a free lorry (horse van/trailer) without even reading the fine print. Next, she dumps Mrs Smith for the handsome, blond, “hottest coach in Britain”, Kyle West. Unfortunately, Kyle's training program isn't all it's cracked up to be, and without Casey and Storm to care for, Mrs Smith has no reason to keep fighting against the cancerous growth that she is refusing to acknowledge. One of the people working for Kyle seems to have it in for Storm, and another seems to be threatening Casey's life—all the while she's trying to prepare for Burghley, the third event in the coveted Grand Slam!! Another fun entry in this eventing series. Exciting and enjoyable.
