  • A Truly Unique Tale

    Lizbeth Rose is a gun for hire.  She works with a group who provides protection services to those who need to travel in the fractured United States.  Nicknamed Gunnie Rose, she has built quite the reputation for herself.  She is well known for her quick reflexes and fearlessness.   When she accepts the job of two Russian wizards to be their guide and protection on their quest to save the King, she finds that all is not what it seems.  On a quest to find answers herself, she vows to follow through till the end.  What she doesn't expect is the amount of people out to kill her charges.  Will Lizbeth survive this quest?  Or will this be her last job? I want to start this off by saying that I am a huge Charlaine Harris fan.  HUGE Fan!!!  I have read all her books, some more times than others, but all of them more than once.  With that being said, I did not like this book as much as her other books.  I am not saying I didn't like it, but I didn't love it.  It was still an excellent read, but I found it below par for her.   True to Charlaine form, this book offers a very original and unique world.  The characters are original and interesting.  The story line itself is very different from anything I have read in a while.  This book falls in the Fantasy genre.  It has a lot of wizardry, which some consider paranormal.  The story was steady paced, but the time line seemed off.  It was written as if it were in the old west days, but there are cars and buses.  So this to me was a tad confusing. I did like Lizbeth's character.  She is smart, strong and determined.  She is loyal to a fault and speaks her mind.  She doesn't trust easily.   She is special and I think that towards the end of the book she starts to realize how special she really is. The other characters in the book are very interesting and I am intrigued by them.  Overall this is a wonderful and unique read.  I will look forward to seeing what else is in store for this series.

  • Great start to a new series

    I really enjoyed this. I like the alternate world, I liked the characters, and I liked the pace--not too draggy and enough detail to understand what's going on. One problem I have with Harris' series is that she doesn't know when to end them. I'm hoping that since this is just a trilogy, Harris will be able to maintain the quality she's started with and end when it's done. I'm really looking forward to the next book.

  • Great start to a really unique series!

    Well, I loved this! I have been a huge fan of Charlaine Harris's work but I haven't picked up any of her new books since the Sookie Stackhouse series ended. I have re-read a couple of the early Sookie Stackhouse books but I guess I was more than a little upset by how that series ended so I took a break from her work. I decided that it was time to give her books another chance and I must say that I am very happy that I picked up this book. It was an incredibly enjoyable read from beginning to end. This book's setting is an alternate America in the 1930s. America has been broken up into several different countries and some areas are rather wild. Lizbeth Rose works as a gunnie, or hired gun. She takes her job seriously and will do whatever it takes to complete her mission. She finds herself without a crew and decides to take on a job offered to her by two Russian wizards. This story was really exciting and there is a ton of action to go around. Gunnie Rose seems to be able to protect her charges very well even when they are not cooperating. I loved Gunnie Rose. She is a little rough around the edges but she is incredibly smart and knows when to keep her mouth shut. She never stops trying no matter how the odds are stacked against her. Eli and Paulina were also wonderful characters. Paulina and Gunnie didn't always see eye to eye which made for some rather interesting scenes. I would highly recommend this book to others. I loved the Old West setting along with the alternate world that is very different than what is in the history books. This book was filled with action, wonderful characters, a bit of romance, and an interesting mystery. I cannot wait to read more of this exciting series.

  • An Easy Read

    This was a great way to start the new year, with a new series from Charlaine Harris. I really enjoyed the voice of "Gunnie" Lizabeth Rose and enjoyed going along on her adventure. The only thing I thought was lacking was the world building. I wish it was more clear about the events of that created their reality and even more information about what year it was supposed to be. It was a weird juxtaposition of wild west and modern conveniences. Overall though, I'm looking forward to the next book.

  • A great new series

    I’ve always loved the character growth in Charlain Harris’s books and can’t wait to see how Gunnie evolves.
