Publisher's Summary

A tortured gunfighter. A Navajo outcast. And the creature whose claws would stain the stones of the Mojave red.

Flush with raw silver and ruled by a baron with an iron fist, the tiny mining outpost of Shank’s Point is under siege by a sinister evil. When the rising sun reveals the claw-torn bodies littered among the rocks, John Swift-Runner calls on his old friend, a vagabond gunfighter, to stand with him against the slaughter he knows will come.

But as their band of misfits hunts for the creature on the burning sands of the Mojave, they stumble into a generations-old mystery that goes beyond shamanic curses and into the bloodstained pages of legend.

Can the killing be stopped? And can a tortured gunman like Kit Barker - with a terrible secret of his own - prevail against something as savage and eternal as the Beast?

Wow!

Great story! The author, J. R. White did a remarkable job at verbally illustrating the characters and the story. I also thought the narration to be excellent and easy to follow.

I was in no way a fan of Westerns before but this book may have changed that. I am looking forward to Kit Barker's next adventure.

A nice surprise.

What a great suprise this book turned out to be. What initially caught my interest was the western-horror format, but the characters and detail are what kept me glued to the tale. Mr. White has written a great story here, and it left me wanting more. I was also really suprised by the narrator. I've never listened to his work before, but he's great! All in all, I was delighted with this. Totally worth my credit.

Great Listen

I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure what to expect with the narration but thought it was awesome. I would definitely recommend it. Once I started I didn’t want to stop listening. I would love to see JR White’s story become a movie.

A great story, that will make any commute.

Shadow of Wolves…where do I begin? What I perhaps liked best about the book is the setting. While it is a work of fiction, there has been some obvious research to ensure that the vernacular and setting description is fitting correctly. Little is out of place, even the description of the town matches what western and southwestern mining towns would have looked like. The story is perhaps one of the better takes on the legend of werewolves it even added a twist that I did not predict seeing happening. J.R. White provides an imaginative land and creative story tell that allows the reader to become lost in the book and feel as if they are apart of the story. This is one of the best first outings I have read in some time, I look forward to more adventures with Kit Barker via the pen of J.R. White.

A Western Horror Story

My library is full of sci-if, thrillers, and history. I can’t recall having any horror (except an occasional zombie story) and I have absolutely no westerns. So I didn’t know what to expect with Shadow of Wolves. I’m really glad I gave this a chance. It’s a fun and action packed read that had me fondly recalling the old Penny Dreadful TV series. The writing is great, the characters have depth, and the narrator does a very good job. The author was very successful in blending the two genres and I can’t wait for more in this series.

Such a fun listen

I listened to this on a road trip with my nephews. We had really enjoyed the story, western with werewolves! The characters were great. And we loved the performance by the narrator! I only wish there was another book in the series for our next road trip

Fun, fast-paced Wild West meets Werewolf Tale

From the second this book started, I could not turn away. With vivid descriptions and likable characters, I felt like I was right in the middle of all the action. This would be a great read/listen for anyone and everyone—even those who may not think they’d enjoy a western or a paranormal story. Very well done! And I can’t wait for more to come.

Amazing engaging story from start to finish!!!

Awesome book, perfect narrator for the story. I'm a truck driver and for the most part I don't get much time to sit down and enjoy a physical book anymore. I finished Shadow of Wolves in three stints and didn't want to stop listening when I had to stop to actually work. I will be saving to listen to again!!!
