In Texoma, part of an alternate-history United States, Lizbeth Rose awaits her half-sister Felicia and her husband Eli’s younger brother, Peter, as they arrive from San Diego, where there were kidnapping and murder attempts on Felicia. Since the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, was not safe enough from Felicia’s Mexican relatives, Lizbeth and Eli are determined to protect Felicia and Peter at home. But then some news arrives that means Eli and Peter are heading back to San Diego, and their enemies have plans of revenge and death that will either kill them or destroy everything they have together. Devious plans, family sadness, and a surprising twist will change their futures—if they survive. Harris’s intriguing setting of a fractured United States with magical families and gunslingers will continue to draw readers in. The character arcs and familial interactions sometimes slow the fast pace of the action, although it’s still a quick and entertaining read.
VERDICT Magic meets the American West in the fifth installment of Harris’s delightful “Gunnie Rose” series, after The Serpent in Heaven.
