a great listen

This is a great follow-up to Curse of the Ancients and a fun story all around. The western and supernatural elements work well together, and the sense of suspense from chapter to chapter really makes you want to keep going to find out what happens next. But what really makes this tale stand out are the characters and how they grow as the story progresses. The narrator also does a great job of bringing them to life. Looking forward to the next book in the Son of Earp series!

Worthy sequel

In the first of his Son of Earp series, Chuck Buda writes about a boy, James, who wants to leave home and find adventure. In the Haunted Gunslinger, all the trouble and adventure shows up on James' doorstep. Buda has created a duo--James and Carson,--it is hard not to root for, regardless of where their adventures take them.

Good story with great characters.

I enjoyed the 1st book in the series and am glad the author brought them back. I like the details, it really paints a picture. The main character is great because he isn't perfect but tries to be just and fair.

A fantastic tale

Haunted Gunslinger all but leaves off from Curse of the Ancients and throws us straight into a new story of James, Carson and Sarah.
Chuck Buda keeps the story going as James continues to try to find his place in the world.
The story is really gripping and Buda keeps it going at a pace where you get the story, character arcs and setting given to you just right.
I’m really getting hooked on this series and am looking forward to starting book three.
