Farely, Steven The Black Stallion and the Lost City, 245 pgs. Random House, 2011, $16.99. Language - PG (1 swear, 0 "f"), Mature Content - PG; Violence - PG; The Black Stallion and the Lost City is about a horse named The Black, and Alec Ramsay, The Black's rider, who goes for an afternoon walk and loses their way. Soon they find themselves almost back in time with flesh-eating mares and ancient rituals of the Greek civilization.
I enjoyed how this book places you back in time with some Greek myths, while Alec and The Black are shooting a movie called "Alexander the Great." It was very entertaining, and when you are waiting for something to happen, you are still just as entertained, as you would be during some action. MS - ADVISABLE. Student Reviewer: MD
