Some suspension of disbelief may be required to fully enjoy this beautifully-written western, but trust me: it's worth it. This band of cowboys (and girls disguised as boys) is wonderfully characterized, and though the pace can sometimes be a little bit slow, everything leads to a satisfying conclusion.
I'd write more about this one, but it's better read than talked about, really. It's too hard to go into detail about it without spoiling a few key plot points. But this book has something for everyone. There's plenty of adventure, a splash of incredibly complicated and forbidden romance, some truly grisly moments, and a thread of suspense that is so taut that one might start pleading with the characters to make the right choice... whatever that is.
The ending might be a little bit too neat for some, but that's a small complaint. I can't wait to see what Stacey Lee writes next!
