Review by: Wenwen on May 03, 2014 :
This is a fresh, inventive, lively and entertaining adventure. The characters became like real people to me and the old west setting was captured to great effect. The story was at times funny, at times dramatic, at times hair raising, but at all times entertaining. I am ready for more!

Bax, Matthew and Cordelia were some of my favorite characters. Throughout the book there is an intriguing balance of fantasy and conflict reminiscent of the Old West. It has what is probably my favorite rescue scene of all time. The narrative appealed to me because of its fast-paced adventure. Johnson delivers just as promised.

I enjoyed the blending of fantasy with the old west adventure. The characters are well developed and the themes of friends and family are refreshing in this day and age. plenty of high jinks and action, good read with the kids.

Review by: David H. Keith on April 22, 2014 :
The Good: This is an interesting tale written in the style of the old dime novels. Full of action, larger-than-life heroes, dastardly villians, monsters, and adhering to the Cooooooode of the West. Sadly, there's

The Bad: I found it tedious and actually painful to read because of

The Ugly: Mr. Johnson apparently feels no need to even do a quick re-read, much less a formal proofread and edit. It's like he just tossed a bunch of words in, stirred them up a bit, didn't notice (or didn't care about) those that were tossed out of the pot, and shoved it, uncooked, into publication. This disrespect of his readers is amateurish at best, borderline criminal at worst.

Suggestion: Yank this thing forthwith. Take the time and expend the effort to care enough about the readers to fix the omitted words, misspellings, punctuation, and just plain wrong words, then republish. Do that and readers will thank him. I certainly will. I've not read volumes 2 & 3 yet - nor do I intend to. This one left too bitter a taste in my mouth. And that's a real pity.

This would make a great kids night-time book! Doesn't have the huge drive for an all in one sit down read though.
