e "Stiefvater's novel, inspired by Manx, Irish, and Scottish
legends of beautiful but deadly fairy horses that emerge from the
sea each autumn, begins rivetingly and gets better and better . . .
all the way, in fact, to best."
-Horn Book Review, Starred Review
e "Masterful...like nothing else out there now."
-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review e "A study of courage and loyalty tested...utterly compelling."
-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review e "A book with cross-appeal to lovers of fantasy, horse stories, romance, and action-adventure, this seems to have a shot at being a YA blockbuster."
-Booklist, Starred Review e "Up-On the sea-battered and wind-swept isle of Thisby, fall brings the famed and feared capaill uisce, or water horses, and with them, death . . . The author takes great liberties with the Celtic myth, but the result is marvelous."
