Collection: Praise for Dark Horses by Susan Mihalic

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
