Staff Reviews

Wake of Vultures is alternate-history western at its best. Vampires, chupacabras, harpies, and baby-stealing cannibal owls are all presented in grotesque, true western fashion. Toss in our heroin - a half-black, half-Native American runaway girl pretending to be a boy - who has just been saddled with the unpleasant destiny of killing the un-killable supernatural creature, all while trying to maintain her cover and figure out her place in the world, and you've got one hell of a story.



"Wake of Vultures will kick your a** up one page and down the other." -- io9
Nettie Lonesome dreams of a greater life than toiling as a slave in the sandy desert. But when a stranger attacks her, Nettie wins more than the fight.
Now she's got friends, a good horse, and a better gun. But if she can't kill the thing haunting her nightmares and stealing children across the prairie, she'll lose it all -- and never find out what happened to her real family.
Wake of Vultures is the first novel of the Shadow series featuring the fearless Nettie Lonesome.
