Kurzbeschreibung

From Spur Award-Winning Author Larry D. Sweazy

A Josiah Wolfe, Texas Ranger Novel

From the blood he spilled during the Civil War to his beloved wife, who died in childbirth, and his daughters, who were taken by the flu, ex-Texas Ranger Josiah Wolfe thought he had seen enough death for one lifetime. Now, with an infant son and a heart full of pain, he's rejoining the Rangers as part of the Frontier Battalion. But first, his captain needs him to escort Charlie Langdon to trial.

Wolfe and Langdon had a long history together as both lawmen and soldiers—until Langdon's lust for blood and money made him an outlaw. Wolfe knows his old friend has to pay. But the ride to the hangman's noose isn't going to be easy. Langdon's friends aren't going to give him up without a fight. And Wolfe's killer instinct may be his only chance to see his son again...

"Raw, wild, and all too human...a thundering testament to just how good the Western novel can be."
—Johnny D. Boggs, Spur Award-winning author

3.0 von 5 Sternen undecided 14. September 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I can't say that I truely enjoyed this book. I read it just to see how it would end and then turned around and ordered a couple more of books on Ranger Wolfe to see if the story line would get better. Too me, all the books on Wolfe are the same just different settings. I do recognize the areas of Texas that are mentioned but thats about it. I don't know if I would recommend these books to someone else. I'm just undecided.......

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic Series in the Works 11. Februar 2010
Von Matthew P. Mayo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Rattlesnake Season is a top-shelf novel from first to last. That it is classified as a Western is a bonus to fans of that genre--but this is a book for anyone who appreciates fine writing and tight storytelling.

Sweazy's rich, engrossing tale involves the reemergence of a man pummeled by adversity, but who rises again and again, squaring his shoulders and doing what needs to be done. In lesser hands such a protagonist could slip into heroic parody, but here these admirable character traits are rendered with care and realism.

There are very few new novels that offer the bold sense of an epic while keeping readers turning the pages, but this one does. This is a book to give to a friend who says, "I haven't read a Western in a while. What do you recommend?" You'll be handing them the first book in a series that has all the earmarks of a classic.

I look forward to the coming books in this series about Josiah Wolfe, Texas Ranger, by this seasoned writer who, if The Rattlesnake Season is any indication, will give us years of reading pleasure.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad for his first book 21. Oktober 2009
Von Rip8fan1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the first full-length book by Mr. Sweazy, and he is off to a pretty good start. The book takes place in the 1870's, in Texas U.S.A. Mr. Sweazy put a lot of effort, time, and research into making it very realistic, and authentic for that time period. It is a slow-paced story, which probably fits into the Western Genre (this is the first Western that I have ever read), but the pages fly-by as you want to keep reading.

The story of a Texas Ranger, escorting a criminal back to trial, is pretty good. There were times when I really wanted to strangle the person who wrote the back cover 'blurb', as that does not really do the book justice. There is more than just the escorting part, and the escorting part falls apart quite rapidly.

The editing of the book was really good for the first half, then kind of fell apart in the last half of the book. I was disappointed in the editing, but that can be fixed in future printings!

This book probably would have been a five-star rating for me, EXCEPT for the ending of the book. Building up to the climax was very good. The climax of the book was quite a let down for me, and that might be the way that Westerns are done, but it didn't 'feel right' to me!

Mr. Sweazy has a contract for three more books in this series, and I can't wait for the next one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A portrait of a Texas Ranger 24. Oktober 2009
Von PJ Coldren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Josiah Wolfe has been asked to come back to be a Texas Ranger again. Devastated by the death of his wife and daughters from the flu, unsure how to raise the infant son who survived being born, Josiah needs a way to provide for his small family. His first task, under the leadership of Captain Fike, is to take Charlie Langdon from jail and bring him to Austin for trial. Josiah and Charlie have, as we say, history. Josiah stands on one side of the law; Charlie has both feet firmly planted on the other side. RATTLESNAKE SEASON takes us with Josiah as Charlie is handed over to the Rangers, escapes, and is recaptured. Along the way, Captain Fike is killed, Josiah has to decide for himself who the other bad guys are, and how he is going to handle the two women he meets on this journey.

Sweazy has given readers a wonderful portrait of a lawman in the old West. Josiah has depth to him, more than one might expect from a lawman back in those days. There is another book in the works; look for THE SCORPION TRAIL if you enjoyed this very-well written western.
5.0 von 5 Sternen "Rattlesnake Season" heralds a new voice 5. November 2009
Von Brandt Dodson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Josiah has his hands full - and then he must escort a prisoner.
I won't recount the plot since that has already been done in the previous two reviews. I will however, tell you how impressed I was by the story that Mr. Sweazy has penned and how convinced I am that Rattlesnake Season is the heralding of a new voice in the western genre.

Rattlesnake Season is a story that is told with grit and a sense of place and time that is all too often lacking in many recently published western novels. This author has done his research - and it shows. Seldom do I read a novel anymore - and even less so is this true of many western novels - where I can feel the author's passion for his story as well as for his craft. I suspect that Mr. Sweazy will find his audience far sooner than any of us would suspect and that they will remain with him for a long and productive career.

Read the book.
