    Nettie Lonesome lives in a land of hard people and hard ground dusted with sand. She's a half breed who dresses like a boy, raised by folks who don't call her a slave but use her like one. She knows of nothing else. That is until the day a stranger attacks her. When nothing, not even a sickle to the eye, can stop him, Nettie stabs him through the heart with a chunk of wood, and he turns into black sand. And just like that, Nettie can see.

    Nettie Lonesome made a leap - not knowing what she'd become. But now her destiny as the Shadow is calling. A powerful alchemist is leaving a trail of dead across the prairie. And Nettie must face the ultimate challenge: side with her friends and the badge on her chest or take off alone on a dangerous mission that is pulling her inexorably toward the fight of her life. When it comes to monsters and men, the world isn't black and white.

    Disappointing
