Publisher's Summary

An alien stranded on Earth. A tall warrior woman. Two fates forever connected.

Marooned in 19th century West, Llewellyn is someone who should not exist. During a raid on a Comanche camp, he rescues Anna - a young, strong frontier woman. The two become friends and comrades, their fates forever intertwined. They find themselves together in the prairies of 19th-century Texas, the bordellos of Civil War-era New Orleans, the Prohibition in the 1920s, the Great Depression, and the vastness of space.

But can they survive hardships through history, the enmity of their southern neighbors, and the Civil War to return to his home planet and exact his revenge?

"A page-turning, extraordinary excursion that crosses genres." (Daniel Scott White, editor of Unfit Magazine)

Western with some SciFi

This was a good Western just not enough SciFi. Set in the Texas West was an enjoyable western. The Narration was good as well.

Note at the time of this review audible did not have chapter titles for this title.

This title was provided free for review, however, these are my honest thoughts and opinions.

If Louis L'amour wrote Scifi

This book spans I think about 10 years, including the civil war. It's the first in a 6 book series, so I think there is some just "world building" that takes place for backstory (though since it all takes place on Earth, I imagine there will be substantially more in the books to come). The meat of this story though takes place in Texas. As I listened to it, I thought again and again, that if Louis Lamour wrote sci-fi (Ok, I suppose Haunted Mesa is kinda scifi) this is the story he would write. Aliens from other planets live among typical western tropes & look & act a bit like them too. It being a western, there is some violence throughout it, including comanche raids, and violence against women & some mild sexual inferences. That certainly wasn't my favorite part of the book, but it kind of set everything in motion for where the story is going to go. As such though, I'd rate it PG-13 I enjoyed the story & I'm very curious where it will go from here. Hope to hear the next one soon.
My Scottish accent for Mac was a little thick sometimes, but I hope it is good fit for the Character. In talking with Mari, she said in one of the later books Mac mentions that he tries to avoid people from Scotland because they'd be able to tell the difference. I'm hoping my former German roommate will enjoy my German accent for some of the other charaters.
There are some pretty heavy emotional chapters & in performing them it was in some ways quite cathartic.
I enjoyed working with Mari & Next Chapter audio on this project & I'm looking forward to the next one in the series - Gather the Children.
