Publisher's Summary

Hawk Haynes ruled from his heart, but stayed alive by using his instincts. Hawk was on his way to start a new life in Texas when he runs into burned out wagons. He finds families slaughtered, the men killed, the women raped, and killed. Hawk Haynes had just introduced himself to Southwest Texas.

Hawk had been deeded land just northwest of Rawlins for his services in taking care of Ted Rawlins and his wife until their death. According to Ted, the property he deeded to Hawk was prime land. According to what Hawk saw while traveling, it was anything but prime. It didn't look like it could grow grass, but it could grow outlaws, gunfighters and murderers. That made it easy for a man like Sid Rawlins hire all the ruthless men he needed to him solve his problems. Hawk and Rawlins will lock horns and A Braver Man will be crowned.

A BRAVER MAN

Excellent book! Well written with a good story and lots of action. This is a role for John Wayne if he were still with us. I hope Mr. Kimes keeps them coming.

Over the top

The good guys too good the bad guys too bad. A schoolboys opinion on patriotism, God, and the Civil War. The hero is too fast, too tough, to be believed. This is a 17 hour penny dreadful.

Excessive Violence and Swearing, Foul language

Would you try another book from Royal Wade Kimes and/or John Pruden?

No

What could Royal Wade Kimes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less unnecessary killing and eliminate the "hard on my ears" violent language.
It was a unique plot. He dragged out the ending by inserting events that could have been left out.

What three words best describe John Pruden’s performance?

Good voice, talented

Totally predictable

All the stereotypes of the most predictable Western stories are there... Really boring to the extreme.

Too wordy.

Great story, great characters, great action, great reading, but at times the author gets lost with the characters' internal monologues. Each Character has moments when the author displays their thoughts and feelings about the situations occurring in the story-line. A lot of these moments get strung out a lot longer than they should be and really interrupt the flow of the book. The monologues tend to go on and on, like beating a dead horse. The author does a great job developing his characters and has a great story line. If he could cut the monologues down inside, I'd easily give this book 5 stars.

Pretty Darn Good Plenty of Action

I like books with good honerable lead characters that kick butt on the villians, this one had a great story and plenty of gunfighting action I really hated to see it end. I liked it so much I bought Bostons Quest from the same author.
