After Dark Review of The Horse Master of Shanhasson by Joely Sue Burkhart

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: "Prequel to The Shanhasson Trilogy

After working in Her Majesty’s stables for five years, Jake is called into the palace under a veil of secrecy. The High Queen is ready to abdicate, and he’s her last hope of overcoming the Shadow that has haunted her.

Thankfully, the Horse Master is bringing his whip."

My Review: I did rather enjoy this story, so much so that I plan to read the entire trilogy but I wanted so much more. I realize that this is a novella introduction to the series but I feel that there could have been more story, maybe started when they first met and then skimmed the next five years. I think it did leave of with some interesting ideas as to where the trilogy could go and I look forward to finding out.
My Rating: While I found the story interesting and I really enjoyed the characters, this one just needed a lot more meat for me.  I will be looking for the next books though ;)  I give it a rating of Two Paws.

  1. I just started a trilogy that began with a novella and seemed a bit short, but it was enough to get me hooked. Lol. Hopefully the next books will add to your interest and you'll give them higher ratings! :)
