Publisher's Summary

Todd Crane is on the run from the law.

Good thing he’s got four legs.

But even the magic ring that lets Todd turn into a centaur isn’t enough to help him escape from Marshal Amy Crockett, who’s got a bone to pick with him. Something about selling not-entirely-legal magic potions. No big deal, right?

Hang on. It gets worse.

There’s a downright terrifying monster roaming across the West...even worse than the usual monsters one finds out there. A creature that could leave the United States of Neverica in ruins.

The Headless Horseman is back.

Todd and Amy are the only ones who might be able to save the day. Fortunately, they’ve got help...in the form of a guitar-playing dragon shifter and a book-loving gorgon.

Yes, this is the western you’ve been looking for. Enjoy.

fantastical western, hilarious narrator

It should be no secret that I am delighted with everything Kyle Robert Shultz writes. His work is humorous and thought provoking. So when it came out that he was having audiobooks made it was a no brainier that I should check them out.

Horseman takes place in an alternate American West, one that has magic potions, mythical creatures and hilarious characters. the title works on multiple levels as the main character Todd crane is both a centaur and a relation of Icabod Crane of Sleepy Hallow fame.

Kieran Flitton is a wonderful choice for this book. not only does he have a mastery of voices, his accents are perfect, and his comedic timing is spot on. His performance of Todd's fist person POV is a joy to listen to. Kieran gives his performance a western flair without over whelming the speech with twang.

I highly recommend this book anyone who loves fantasy, westerns of just wants a good laugh.

Laugh-Out-Loud Funny with Excellent Action

Fantasy Western. I suppose I should have guessed that people have done it, but I hadn't...and it works! Horseman is set in a world where myths and folklore aren't just stories, but very much real. Without giving too much away, you'll see versions of characters like Rip Van Winkle, as well as descendants of Davy Crockett and Ichabod Crane, plus monsters and other surprises along the way.

I honestly wasn't sure what I was going to get when I picked up this book. What I ended up with was many laugh-out-loud moments, heart-racing action scenes, and characters I desperately want to learn more about. Book two, here I come!
