Publisher's Summary

As Lieutenant Rory Nance lay dying after the battle of Cedar Creek in the Shenandoah Valley, Captain Josh Logan gave his word to his best friend.

Now, two years later, deep in the Comancheria, Josh Logan rides to accomplish his dying friend’s request. As he rides through the rolling, West Texas hills, blood-thirsty Comanches could wait in the next ravine or around the next hill. Yet, he is determined to fulfill his promise.

His message delivered, he must make a decision that could cost him his life. Will Josh stay and help Rory’s father save his ranch from sharp-shooters, murderers, and land-grabbers, or continue to Colorado to join his brother Callum before the snow flies?

cliché after cliché

It was not a terrible story over all. The problem was it was predictable to the highest level and was a cliche page after page. It was like a city kid read one western book and tried to write his own story, not knowing anything about life on the western plains. I wouldn't recommend it to a friend, but I also wouldn't tell anyone not to read it. It just isn't the best story to read if your used to Louis L'Amour books....

Maybe It's Just Low Expectations

I cannot fathom how this novel received any positive ratings or reviews. Every scene, interaction, and attempt at period dialogue reads like a B-Grade, made-for-TV, Hallmark Channel Western. The cliches, stereotypes, and forced virtue are equally as bad as the clumsy attempts at caricaturing villainy. Even the bad guy is given the ridiculous name of Backshooter (Really?).

I am appalled at the mundane, pedestrian, fluff peddled in this novel. This work smacks of market desperation...keep the pulp churning and the Western fans won't complain. There isn't that much out there in the genre so they'll take what we give em'.

The real kicker is that I can't return this book.

I give this book two Yellow Boy Winchesters down for silliness and uninformed historical fiction writing.
