Reagan (Hengist - People of the Horse Book 3)
Jacky Gray, author
Decode the mysteries of white horses, crop circles and ley-lines to save his people? No pressure, then. Reagan knows he’s nothing special; his mother reminds him often enough. Being shy and scruffy makes him inadequate in her eyes; winning the Garlanding and scoring 100% on his graduation tests are of little consequence. But his mathematical skills and ability to sense ley-lines are essential to the council for determining the cause of dangerous accidents in the village. Aided by his spirit guide and an irreverent trainer, Kalen, sparks fly when they meet Reeve, daughter of the leading authority on white horses. The quest becomes a race against time as an epidemic claims numerous casualties. Can Reagan find the missing pieces of the puzzle before his perilous gift destroys him, as it destroyed so many chosen children?
Reviews
Andrea Domanski, Author of Crossfire

I really do love this series. Reagan, for me anyway, was the most fun as it delves into the mysteries of the white horses that dot the English countryside as well as crop circles. The author does a great job mixing fact with fiction and by the end I really believed I understood the truth behind those mysteries.I loved following Reagan from geeky school kid to intrepid hero trying to save his community. There were other great characters surrounding him, some trying to help and some not, that rounded out the story well.

As much as I loved golden boy Archer, Reagan is the one who stole my heart. I notice the author claims to have been a 'geeky teen' herself, so perhaps that is how she nailed the character development, from geek to hero. (I also was a 'geeky teen' so I could be biased.) But it seems to me that the heart and wit and adventure, that are the author's style, are in full force in this third book. I highly recommend starting this series from the beginning. It definitely lends itself to a good old fashioned reading binge. Go geeks.

I think this is my favourite of Jacky Gray's Hengist series. I could really relate to Reagan's sweet awkwardness and found him really believable and so very human. His relationship with his family, mother especially, was well drawn out and totally relatable. All in all, a great read!

Reagan is a particularly well-developed character with many facets to his personality. On one hand, he is a son struggling to please his parents while also a young man whose talents win the respect of Malduc, the leader of the elder council. Ms. Gray does an excellent job presenting Reagan's internal psychological struggle between the teenager in him and the side of him that is a level-headed professional.

The series is targeted at teenagers but continues to have great cross-over appeal due to Ms. Gray 's clean writing style and meticulous research.
