Starlight Stables: Bush Bolts (Book 3)




An exciting and enjoyable Australian series about the friendship and adventures of three horse-crazy girls.

Poppy is thrilled that her best friend Sarah is finally coming to visit Starlight Stables. She is sure that Sarah will love it all as much as she does – especially Poppy’s beautiful pony, Crystal, and her horse-mad friends, fiery Milly and sweet Katie. But it soon becomes clear that Sarah doesn’t share Poppy’s love of horses and riding – in fact, she’s more interested in helping Poppy’s uncle with some injured animals.

When a bushfire erupts nearby, Poppy finds herself fighting not only to save her friendship but also to save her beloved Starlight Stables. Will she lose everything she loves?

About the Author

Soraya Nicholas

As a horse-crazy girl, Soraya Nicholas dreamt of owning her own pony and riding every day. For years, pony books like The Saddle Club had to suffice, until the day she finally convinced her parents to buy her a horse. There were plenty of adventures on horseback throughout her childhood, and lots of stories scribbled in notebooks, which eventually became inspiration for Soraya's very own pony series. Soraya now lives with her husband and children on a small farm in her native New Zealand, surrounded by four-legged friends and still vividly recalling what it felt like to be 10 years old and head over heels in love with horses.

She is also a successful romance and women's fiction author.

Praise for Starlight Stables: Bush Bolts (Book 3)

“This is a fast-moving story, with underlying themes of courage, friendship, resolving conflict and caring for each other and for wildlife. It contains a wealth of ‘horsey’ content, plus some bushfire safety information after the story ends.”

Lesley Reed, Creative Kids Tales
