Publisher's Summary

When Kate Thompson's father is killed by the notorious Rose Riders for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the 18-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there's room for love in a heart so full of hate.

In the spirit of True Grit, the cutthroat days of the Wild West come to life for a new generation.

    Story
    "Hunting for a gold mine"

    Looking for a change of pace ? This is a pretty decent Western, featuring a rather tough teenage girl out to avenge her father's murder. Similarities to "True Grit" end there. Good narration captures the colloquial speech patterns.

    "Great western tale with a wonderful cowboy heroine"

    Vengeance Road is a really fun read. The language and history referenced make the story feel very authentic. The western culture comes to life from the books rich detail and colorful characters.

    Highly recommend!!

    "Vengeance Road"

    Probably one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. The narrator did an excellent job with the accent and western vernacular that it made it really fun to listen to!

    "Disappointing narrator..."

    The narrator was just average. But perhaps I've been spoiled by my last few listens. A few voices sounded the same.. Especially the male voices.

    "Definitely a YA Story"

    Action packed, fast paced story with gutsy characters and a fairly believable plot line. A little simplistic as far as Kate , Will and Jesse's ability to withstand gunshot and knife wounds, a dust storm , lack of food and water and the Rose gang. I would not consider this to be a book that extends much beyond a YA audience. Just a warning for the older crowd.
