This is the tale of his fellow horses, too: tragic Ginger, good-natured Merrylegs and the brave Captain. Meet the people who love Black Beauty, his cruel masters and the brave men, women, boys and girls who confronted the tyrants and helped Black Beauty along the way in our exclusive club edition of the best loved classic.

Three angels are sent down to bring good to a small seaside town and, ultimately, to the world. Gabriel, the warrior, and his sisters Ivy, the healer, and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. She is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces. So begins the first in a remarkable, heaven-sent trilogy by seventeen-year-old Alexandra Adornetto, who was fourteen when she published her first book, The Shadow Thief.
