When her father is murdered for a journal revealing the location of a hidden gold mine, eighteen-year-old Kate Thompson disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers—and justice. What she finds are untrustworthy strangers, endless dust and heat, and a surprising band of allies, among them a young Apache girl and a pair of stubborn brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, a startling truth becomes clear: some men will stop at nothing to get their hands on gold, and Kate’s quest for revenge may prove fatal.


Damn gold.

Pa’s right – it does make monsters of men. And women. ‘Cus while I don’t want the riches, I want that gang dead, and I ain’t quitting till each of ‘em’s as cold as that bastard in the outhouse. I know exactly where they’re headed, and I’ll see that their destination becomes their graves.

-pg 39


This book is intense. If you like True Grit, and you don’t mind Young Adult fiction, you’ll probably love this book.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by A Daily Rhythm (Previously Should Be Reading).
