Buck Johnson, along with his slow-moving and slow-thinking sidekick Skeeter Evans, currently plies his trade as a dragon wrangler on Terul and is busting out a bunch of dracs for the repulsive Terullian Karposh. But when an unruly Red Kraken throws Buck, events take an unexpected turn. And Buck and Skeeter, with a little help from Snort Jones, right some wrongs and give Karposh his comeuppance...while still meeting their contractual obligations.
A wild mix of Fantasy, Action/Adventure, Western, and Science Fiction, Buck Johnson: Dragon Wrangler is a new twist on the Space Western and a rollicking ride across the vagaries of a dragon wrangler's and his sidekicks' lives on the planet Terul. Think of The Good Old Boys, The Rounders and a little bit of Lonesome Dove all rolled up together and cast into space.

I was a little hesitant at first to buy this as I could not quite grasp a western that featured cowboys riding dragons. After listening though it really was quite entertaining and well written. The author has a good grasp of the life of a cowboy and how things work "out west"even if out west is way out west!
I have to say it was a toss up between the main character "Buck Johnson" and the terulian lizard guy carposh.
I thought the carposh lizard character was quite entertaining. Since this is a series i would like to see how this plays out in the next story.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
