Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Turner’s Land of Wolves, a sequel to Lincoln’s Bodyguard is a fast-paced, page-turning, heart-wrencher. His characters are all absolute gems and his use of a historically accurate narrative gives a certain authenticity to the novel. His portrayals of the battles for political power and the fight for the Native American’s lands are pulse-pounding, dark and play out perfectly for his story. In Turner’s own words he calls his novels “Revisionist History”, I call them masterpieces and if we knew then what we know now perhaps it could have been called facts. Bravo TJ for another amazing piece of storytelling. SUMMARY: After Joseph Foster and Molly Ferguson foil the Consortium’s plot to have Lincoln killed they along with the old man (Lincoln) and his daughter, Emeline, go to Tennessee to hide and hopefully put down roots. But its deadly clear the Consortium’s not done with them when they send Joseph a message in the form of his dying mother who tells Joseph they have his daughter Aurora. Wracked with guilt and rage Joseph needs to find Aurora and enact revenge on this political monster but Molly won’t let him go alone so together they set off on yet another dangerous journey. Hopefully they’ll find Aurora and survive to finally settle down to marry and enjoy a life they’ve so long been denied, but who knows what the Land Of Wolves has in store for them.
