Pretty good story
I really liked the story told in this book with interesting, hero type characters. However, the author's style of jumping back and forth between the present and future events made the book difficult to follow, not to mention revealing future events before the reader its ready for them. In some cases, the jumping around gives no advance notice and almost looks like a publishing error where the different parts of the book got out of sequence accidentally. If the book had followed a more normal chronological sequence, I would have enjoyed it even more than I did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An outstanding historical western saga.
This is a western novel with all of the traditional content that readers of westerns expect: struggling pioneers (Irish and Mexican) who battle greedy land barons, and vicious desperados...plenty of Indians 'good and bad', and two love stories, plus much more. Two things make this western novel different. 'ONE' It begins in late 1700s Ireland, before moving to early 1800s California. 'TWO' During that time-period, when you pull the trigger...the weapon must be reloaded before it will fire again. This book isn't your routine 'horsepoop and gunsmoke' western...this is how it REALLY was.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
