This new and refreshing standalone western novel brings light into the YA world. When I first heard about this book I was quite hesitant with western being in YA literature. Over time I started to think more and more about this book, and once the cover was released I was sold. The cover is even more stunning in real life and the hardback resembles a leather book (which makes a reference in the book). Once I picked this book up and began reading it, I fell in love with it. In the beginning it’s basically Mulan meets a Western world which was pretty darn interesting. I also loved all the gunslinging action packed in this book along with the language making it seem as if they’re back in 1877.
Even though I highly enjoyed this novel, there were a few negatives. At times I felt the novel was a bit predictable and there was a tad bit of romance that this novel and I could have lived without.
Overall I rate this novel 4/5 stars. This book was beyond refreshing and it was very nice to see something new in the YA world. If you haven’t picked this book up, then you’re missing out. I highly recommend this novel if you would like to try something new and to go above and beyond your comfort zone.
Long time no see! I’m back once again with another Top Ten Tuesday. Today’s topic is Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR. Hopefully I can get to most of these books this fall!
