Reviews

"The novel takes every narrative hurdle as nimbly and astonishingly capably as Roan does the courses she rides. This is a powerhouse."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Dark Horses is a pulse-pounding, unflinching tale of one teenaged girl's iron-willed determination to wrest control of her life from her abuser. Roan Montgomery's sweeping and raw story of courage, resilience and clear-eyed grace will never leave me."
--Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants

"Mihalic is an expert in creating narrative drive; the urge to keep reading is powerful.... A provoking and needed book."
--Booklist (starred review)

"A searing examination of love and lust, power and control, as the narrator's rising sense of self yearns to take the reins."
--Kirkus (starred review)

"Mihalic astutely builds her absorbing debut novel... a narrative that reaches shattering heights. 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 (starred review)

"[A] heart-pounding, can't-take-your-eyes-off-it debut novel."
--OprahMag.com, "Most Anticipated Books of 2021"
