The Silver Horse by Kate Forsyth
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the series.
Emilia and Luka are on the run from a thief-taker, Coldham. They must retrieve six charms from their gypsy kin as Emilia (and her grandmother, who told her about the Chain of Charms) believe in their magical powers, which will surely save their imprisoned family from the gallows. Luka, on the other hand, isn’t convinced so he’s trying to come up with an alternate method of saving the family. They are only thirteen and the burden is huge.
They have the gypsy crown charm (book 1) and now Emilia must race to win the silver horse charm, but at great cost to her.
This series is definitely written for younger readers. The books include snippets of information on the 1600s in England, which is quite interesting. This is another exciting book filled with adventure. This one delves into emotional issues too. Worth reading.
