A novel set in a fantastical version of the American West.
The noose jumper era was a chaotic time of lawlessness in the late 1800s when a growing tide of outlaws engaged in a race to become famous. Most of them ended up at the noose.
Three young men emerge from a small town in the territory of New Mexico. They are bound by a pact and guided by mysterious powerful beings that no one else can see. Together they must face off against the Sheriff of Puerta de la Muerte, a wicked man who cannot be struck by bullets. Are they destined to become legends, or are they just mere noose jumpers?
Noose Jumpers is written by Trevor H, Cooley, author of the highly acclaimed Bowl of Souls series.

I really loved the idea behind their individual talents. The whole fact that belief enhances that talent is a really cool idea.
Sandy, even though he has one of the deadliest talents in the book, he does not use it to kill, most of the time.
When Sandy saves the Coyote's son, when you have that sort of aim, even hopelessness doesn't stand a chance.
Even the best outlaws had help.
I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher via audiobookboom for an unbiased review.
It took a few chapters to get me in grossed, the idea of a western fantasy book is a foreign idea, but once I got into it I was hooked!
Trevor has an amazing talent to make you empathise with his characters, I don't know if it's because I read too much or I am jaded but his works make you worry for characters, make you sad to see them go.
Anyway, this book has some component that if the book American Gods had a love child with any number of old westerns like A Man Called Sledge or For a Few Dollars More you would get this amazing bouncing baby book!
I would be amiss not to mention Andrew Tell who does a great preformance as usual! Also, while listening to this, the cove was changed and Andrew did an amazing job of it!
I beseech you to give it a chance!!!
Excellent twist of western and fantasy, incredible imagination from the author, great character and world development, especially when mixing real history in it. Well done Trevor, well done.
I rate on how mush I enjoyed a book, I am not a book critic.
Well thought through story. Cowboys with super powers, but not cheesy.
It stars as a typical cowboy, bank robbery story, but keep on listening.
I enjoy the three different stories for each of the main characters, that combine at the end. It is almost a 3-in-1 special.
The narrator was perfect, well paced and characterized.

If you are looking for L'Amour or Tolkien, this would not be your first choice. The concept of mixing the two genres negated each while creating a new or sub genre. I would have appreciated an YA alert as the material, while engaging seemed to be aimed at a younger audience than yours truly. The narration by Andrew Tell was first rate. Multiple characters were cleanly delineated and expertly crafted.
I do look forward to more by Trevor H. Cooley as this this work has room to grow.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher
