Mama always said, don’t go near the lake. Rin already knew the forest was filled with dark things, but aside from Mama no one had warned him about the lake. One day, Rin wanders off to the lake, where a beautiful blue horse asks him to go for a swim, and Rin learns too late it may not be a swim he survives.
I received a copy of Kelpie Blue from Netgalley for review Considerations. This in no way influences my opinion of this book.
This was an interesting story that combines fantasy with contemporary horse farm and horse-racing world. Unlike anything I usually read for sure. But really we come into the story after Blue has been living with Rin and his Mum for like 2 or 3 years and they’re already together and most of the plot is taken up by horse racing stuff. I did think some of the time-progress to be unclear. Like suddenly it was weeks or years later? It disrupted the flow a bit for me.
Kelpie Blue lacks well-developed characters, plot and bearable writing. It was definitely not what I was looking for or expecting and I don’t think I’ll be continuing with the series.
That’s it for this review! Have you read this book? If so, What did you think of it? Is it on your TBR? Tell me in the comments if you agree or disagree with any of this. I’d love to know your opinion.
