There really isn't enough words in the English language to describe how amazingly wonderful VENGEANCE ROAD is. Full of action, intriguing characters, and a setting straight out of the past, this book was fun to read from beginning to end. I started and finished it in one sitting, and it left me wanting more! (Although, if you're looking for a great standalone, pick this up! As much as I love a good series, sometimes, you just need a story told and wrapped up in one book. VENGEANCE ROAD does that beautifully!)
Without giving any spoilers (because that's never any fun!) the premise is about an eighteen-year old girl who seeks revenge against the Rose Riders, who ruthlessly murdered her father for his mysterious journal. Along her path, she meets the rough-around-the-edges good guys, Will and Jesse Colton. Agreeing to assist her, hoping to find gold in the wild west of Arizona in 1877 (a very dangerous job, indeed, during that time period!) While under the blazing west sun on her trusty old mare Silver, Kate will stop at nothing to avenge her father's death, knowing it could mean her own in return.
Like I said earlier, I can't say enough good things about this book! I was intrigued from the get-go. Westerns in YA are rare, and this is just the book YA needs!
Also, isn't the cover simply stunning?!
