Publisher's Summary

Winter 1865: Five confederate deserters, near starvation and manic with fury over the state of the war, go on a bloody rampage along the Kansas-Missouri Border, taking retribution on a family of abolitionists they find harboring runaway slaves.

In the aftermath, Ethan Brody returns from the war to find everything he knows and loves reduced to nothing but ashes. Hell bent on revenge, he sets off to find the murderous gang, only to have them slip away. Losing his faith, he sets off on a life of bounty hunting, vowing to never again let justice go astray. "Alive" is no longer an option and in the process, the legend of the Rider is born.

1894: Oliver Kingston Dukes a man of remittance finds his way to the town of Adobe Wells, immediately becoming embroiled in the town's struggle with the wealthy and powerful Katy brothers. Enter the Rider, on the trail of the notorious bandit Hector Salazar. He joins Dukes and the townsfolk to take back the town once and for all, and perhaps...take back his own salvation.

    "Great Western"

    For a first novel Seth Nation hit it out of the park in my opinion. Great job introducing the characters and the in depth details on the story bring you right in from the start. Looking forward to The Riders story to continue

    Story
    "Hell has a rider. His name is Ethan Brody"
    What did you love best about The Devil's Brand?

    This is a developing saga of revenge in the traditional western style. Ethan Brody comes home after service during the Civil War to find his wife and family slaughtered, his farm destroyed. He will go to the ends of the earth to exact revenge!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil's Brand?

    When Ethan finds his dream of home and loved ones killed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are several. When the villians (there are several major villians) are confronted and revenge is exacted.


    If you could rename The Devil's Brand, what would you call it?

    Palomino Rider defending those that have been wronged.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a satisfying listen in the tradition of all good westerns. It is further enhanced by J. Scott Bennett's excellent narration.Thank you for the listen and opportunity to review this audio book.This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com

    Story
    "Entertaining Western"
    What did you love best about The Devil's Brand?

    I really enjoyed the nostalgic feelings from the book. It evoked memories of old school western novels and movies. It had a good amount of action and standard western tropes but mixed it up with new ideas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil's Brand?

    Hard to say without spoiling but let's just say when the Katy's get what's coming to them. No one likes a bully.


    What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think the narrator added a good pacing to the story and his use of changing voices for different characters kept it all flowing well.


    If you could take any character from The Devil's Brand out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Oliver Kingston Dukes. He seems like he would be amazing and entertaining company.

    "The Devil's Brand: A Great New Western Series"

    I really enjoy a good western listen. This one was no exception. It had great characters and although it isn't listed as historical fact, I was able to identify with many locations in the Kansas setting. What I'd like to see in the future of this series is the characters more fleshed out. Seth Nation did a super job with this story.

    J. Scott Bennett is such an exceptional voice actor. I can't sing his praises enough. His performance was flawless and his voice puts you right in the mix of the action. He made this a nice and easy listen.

    I was given a copy of this book free of charge by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Boom.

    "Solid western"

    It has been a long time since I have read a western, and this was a solid and entertaining way to ease back into the genre. The writing was skilled, the plot and main characters all enjoyable, and while nothing in the story was ground breaking, it certainly kept me entertained while waiting for my flight. Some of the descriptions were a bit unpolished, and some dialogue was stilted, but those are minor things that did not take away from the story in any capacity. I am looking forward to listening to more stories in the series, and to seeing how Nation's writing evolves.

    I would be remiss if I did not compliment Bennett in his reading: his voice was absolutely perfect for a western story, and he delivered a truly excellent performance.

    Story
    "The action never stops"

    It is great to find a new western author and book. This is Seth Nation’s first book. He plans on making this into a series.

    Our hero is Ethan Brody. The year is 1865. The Civil War has just ended and Ethan is returning home. Some Confederate deserters go on a bloody rampage along the Kansas-Missouri boarder. Ethan returns home to find his home in ashes; his parents, brother and wife murdered. Ethan goes after the confederate killers.

    Nation is using a standard western formula for his story. We have definite good and evil throughout the story. The book is well written, full of action and the author includes some history about the Kansas-Missouri border area. This is a great start for a new author. I am looking forward to more stories in this series and from this author.

    J. Scott Bennett does a good job narrating the book. Bennett is an Air Force veteran who is a middle school teacher and an audiobook narrator. I find this most interesting as most narrators’ primary job are acting. Bennett has a tenor voice and I have a preference for a baritone voice to read westerns. Bennett does a good job narrating; it is just that I like the baritone voice for westerns.
