11th book in the Series 1955

We join Steve and Flame on Azul Island for another fantastic adventure. Steve is alone With  Flame and his band After seeing a poster for an international horse race Steve dreams of  what it would be like to race Flame against the fastest horses in the world. One night as Steve is watching the band and the band becomes agitated. Suddenly a bright lite streaks across the night sky. Was it a meator  or something else?

Later Steve finds himself at the race Can Flame win against the fastest horses in the world?

At first when I began reading this novel I found the story a bit strange. The more I read the more I understood. This is Mr. Farley’s only dive into the world of science fiction.

This is another one of the novels that grips you and takes you along for the ride. I believe that this would be a good book to be turned into a film.

I try my best when writing these blogs not to give away to much information. I hope I am succeeded. For More info on The Black Stallion Series visit
