My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It is amazing how the Johnstone Clan of writers can draw a reader into a tale. They did it again here with this offering from the Johnstone Herd of books.
The tale is a fun ride of a town in trouble and Sixkiller rides in to try and save the day. After reading so many Johnstone books in the past two years, the tales do start to sound familiar when a weaker writer gets hold of it. That is the case here. As much fun as the story is and the pages turn faster and faster as excitement builds, this Johnstone tale is lacking.
As the book proceeds the story resolves itself a bit too easily. There’s little in the way of twists and turns to help the story have more meat to it’s bone. There is a significant twist in the story that comes at a very odd part of the book.
The characters make it all worthwhile. Most are well done. Though, many are given little background and some are never given names.
The two biggest clunkers of the product is a goofy cover and an unrelated book title.
Still the book is worth reading for the fun of it all.
Bottom line: i recommend the book. 5 of 10 points.
