Wild Horse IslandTerri Farley has done it again! This time instead of the dry desert of Nevada the Wild Horse Island stories take place in the tropical islands of Hawaii. Darby, the main character, made a small apearence in the Phantom Stallion series. Now she owns her own horse. She is moving out of L.A. into the more relaxed atmosphere of Wild Horse Island. Darby can’t relax too much though. She is forever busy trying to train Hoku, her firey filly. Terri definitely did an amazing job on this series. I have all of the books and every single one of them keeps me waiting for the next story. Anyone who likes the Phantom Stallion series will love this new one. And if you like adventure, tropical places and horses, this is the series for you. Welcome to Hawaii, horse girls!
