Susan Mihalic is the author of the critically acclaimed novel Dark Horses (Scout Press, 2021), which received starred reviews from Kirkus, Library Journal, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly.
" A searing examination of love and lust, power and control, as the narrator's rising sense of self yearns to take the reins." --Kirkus
" Deftly sketching the relationships here (including the relationship between horse and rider), Mihalic gives a powerful and insightful account of Roan’s abuse and her path to freedom." --Library Journal
" Mihalic is an expert in creating narrative drive; the urge to keep reading is powerful. . . . A provoking and needed book." --Booklist
" The novel takes every narrative hurdle as nimbly and astonishingly capably as Roan does the courses she rides. This is a powerhouse." --Publishers Weekly
"A pulse-pounding, unflinching tale of one teenage girl's iron-willed determination . . . [Dark Horses] will never leave me." --Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants
