Review:

Lauren St John's horse stories are as good as any of the classics by K M Peyton or Patricia Leitch and this is a marvellous adventure. Readers will fall in love with the horses, wiry, intelligent Shiraz, part Arab; and Scout, Alex's horse, a wild palomino. -- Andrea Reece * LOVE READING * A Glorious read. * IT WAS LOVELY READING YOU * Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS * A pony adventure story worthy of the Pullein-Thompson sisters * HORSE & COUNTRYSIDE MAGAZINE * Part gripping adventure, part love story, this powerful novel travels through an exhilarating yet terrifying landscape. Alex and Will must dig deep, discovering newfound pride in themselves and love for their families. * BOOK TRUST * Lauren St John is the new queen of the older horse novel. * The Times (Saturday Review) * THE GLORY is a born winner. * AMANDA CRAIG * Brilliant - a vast adventure and love story and, I'm trying hard not to say, glorious. * KATHERINE RUNDELL, author of ROOFTOPPERS * The author's knowledge of horsemanship, and of the geography and history of the route, give this novel conviction, and the landscape comes to life along with the characters. The journey involves romance, betrayal, sacrifice, danger, family drama and a tense pursuit. Saddle up for an exhilarating ride. -- Nicolette Jones * THE SUNDAY TIMES * A National Velvet for modern teenagers. -- Alex O'Connell * THE TIMES * Exciting and heartwarming, this is a real page-turner * CountryLife.co.uk * The Glory is a glorious book, a truly fantastic adventure story ... This is a thrilling, escapist triumph * School Librarian * A glorious book ... a thrilling, escapist triumph * The School Librarian * A thrilling adventure story ... not just for horse lovers * The Best New Children's Books 2015 *
