Josie and Deacon have left Horsetown and are back in search of The City. Joined by Josie’s youngest sister, Sadie, they decide to travel on the riverboat The Green Goddess to save travel time.

My thoughts:
Josie, Deacon and Sadie are looking for a mystical city. Most of the book takes ship in a ship and they will face some pretty bad things. And since this is a short one I will not say what those bad things are. I want to leave something as a surprise even if you get an idea from the longer blurb that can be found. 

This land is sure going to hell, I have a hard time seeing a future for them. Well it does not take many to start anew but still, as long as they survive what is coming. It's a nice apocalyptic western series. Hope is not something you find here (well except when talking to Josie and Deacon), and I do like that it is dark.

The book ends with somewhat of a cliffie. I fear what they will see next, and I am hoping for some good news.


  1. Well, certainly not a book for me. But glad you like it.

  2. So short...I don't know what to say!

  3. Oh, no! I hate cliffies!! *pout*

  4. I like the idea of a western apocalyptic setting.

  5. that was a very short review...I keep scrolling up and down looking for the rest of it. hahahaha. I'm glad you liked it!

    It's not for everyone ;)

    Oh yes, so short, I really could not say much without giving it all away

    it is not a bad cliffie. All ends well...though there is something on the horizon

    I do like that too :)

    Oh you! ;)
    I just could not say too much.


  7. Why must blurbs spoil stuff??? I love cliffies, but I think I might have to skip htis one.

  8. Bucky
    Luckily I did not read the blurb and had no idea what happened ;)

  9. I've not heard of this series but doesn't sound like it's one you can start anywhere!

  10. i'm hit or miss with the cliffhanger endings.

    Well, you could, but then you would totally miss the big showdown

    They tend to be that :)

    it is not that big a cliffie, everything is good..for now

  12. Ugh cliffie? Perhaps if I had all the books... then and only then does it not bother me. :)

  13. Melissa
    it was not an evil cliffie, it was just one of those cliffies you can live with

  14. No No No.....cliffies that you are hoping for good news? Those are the most exasperating :)

  15. Felicia
    And I know it wont be good news ;)
