Review by: Shaun J. McLaughlin on July 18, 2014 :
This is a fun yarn. Maxwell is a young man with special talents. Those talents prove life-saving when he confronts the rougher inhabitants of the wild west town of Deadwood. Well-crafted characters. Worth reading.

I don't normally read stories about the old cowboy days, especially coming of age stories. However this story was different and the characters were interesting. I enjoyed it and recommend it.

Jailer's Son enthralls! Great pace that carries the reader through the old west (Dakota's) as the main character, a teen named Maxwell, learns how much of a difference one boy can ultimately make in the world. Having lost his parents in rapid succession, Max relies upon amazing inherent skills his father has helped hone within him and in the process Max discovers other family members that he never knew existed. Will he lose them, too we wonder? Riveting scene descriptions abound and the characters are brought to life by S.A.'s adept prose skills. Serious, sweet, riveting, you name it, it's got it. Yes, The Jailer's Son has some supernatural twists but the most engaging aspects of the book are the human and familial scenarios. Thank god the author is doing a series of books, because one is NOT enough.
