For Vengeance Road
» A YALSA "2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults" title
An action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. I devoured this in one sitting and might have gnawed a nail or two off from all the excitement. More, please!
A suspenseful trek. Readers will eagerly await the next installment.
An action-packed, emotionally charged, plot-twisting adventure. This dystopian has plenty of potential for gripping sequels.
A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry’s The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games.
This engrossing debut novel moves at breakneck speed with puzzles to keep readers guessing and an ending that will leave them wanting more.
This follow-up to Taken…retains plenty of the action and suspense that readers appreciate. Late developments hold great promise for more excitement and drama in the third episode.
The strengths of this series are in the dystopian world and survival aspects. Frozen will attract most readers of science fiction—especially those looking for a male lead.
A surfeit of enemies and a constant sense of danger heighten the suspense; it’s an almost grueling read.
A satisfying culmination to this dystopian-thriller trilogy, and sure to please series fans.
⭐️ An unflinchingly bloody tale of the Wild West…Thoroughly engrossing.
A vivid portrait of a lawless world…The book demands the same stoicism from its readers as the heroine herself possesses.
“Refreshingly believable. Readers will be entranced by Bowman’s swiftly paced, romantic revenge drama.”
Rich in tone and action… a beautiful blend of justice and coming-of-age drama.
Fast-paced [and] entertaining.
Thrilling, racing, action-packed…Vengeance Road will have you looking at the West in a whole new light.
A story of grit, love, and deadly revenge that climbs off the page and into your heart–saddle up for a thrilling, harrowing ride!
Vengeance Road is a page-turning, unputdownable story of revenge. Bowman paints a thrilling, vivid picture of 1877 Arizona, and Kate is a heroine to be reckoned with.
Gritty and honest, Vengeance Road captures the heart of the Wild West.
A take-no-prisoners heroine with a bloody debt to settle. I’m still breathing in the dust and hot Arizona sun.
Relentlessly readable, Vengeance Road is a perfect western. You won’t be able to turn in until you get to the very last page!
Flinty and fierce, Kate is a formidable addition to the pantheon of tough young adult heroines. Her story and voice crackles to life.
Gold madness, a good-for-nothing posse, and frontier justice: Vengeance Road is everything you could want in a Western.
Vengeance Road had a bit of everything I love most in storytelling: a kick-butt heroine, life-or-death stakes, action to make my heart pound, and morals that go gray around the edges. This is the kind of book I’ll re-read again and again.
Bowman does the Arizona Territory justice, making this desolate and tough landscape the perfect setting for a train robbery gone wrong.
Bowman’s attention to period details, sexism, and racism flesh out the fast-paced plot in a most satisfying way. Readers of Vengeance Road will especially enjoy reconnecting with the protagonists of that title…but this stands successfully alone.
I devoured this thrilling, fast-paced battle, from its setting in the American West to its cast of vivid characters. I can’t wait for Erin Bowman’s next work!
To read Retribution Rails is to breathe in snow-dusted plains, to feel a train car rocking beneath your feet, to seek a revenge more precious than gold. Erin Bowman has woven a world as convincing as it is gripping. I flew through these pages with abandon, and I’m certain many readers will find themselves doing the same.
Rugged and ruthless, Retribution Rails brings readers into the expanding—and lawless—Wild West.
Everything I want in a wild west adventure—gunfights, robberies, train jobs, blackmail, stagecoach chases, outlaws, Nellie Bly references—and so much more. Helmed by two vivacious narrators you can’t help but root for, Erin Bowman stages a truly transportive adventure tale with a deft hand. Twisting, thrilling, and a wild ride from start to finish. Prepare to be hooked.
