The Synopsis

The story we all know of Calamity Jane is not what we think. This story follows Calamity as a 15 year old girl and her alien side kick. When tragedy strikes close to Jane she begins a journey of revenge with her sidekick alien. This fun sci-fi western goes from the wild west to guns and star ships. On this adventure Jane will discover her true feelings for revenge vs loyalty, as the reader discovers how the west was really won.

The Review

I loved, loved, loved this book! This is the first sci-fi, western I’ve ever read and I can’t get enough. J.D’s writing is very reminiscent of Scott Sigler but with his own uniqueness. Non stop pulse pounding action ensues from page 1. This retelling account of Calamity Jane is truly a story that will forever be remembered.. The writing moves so gracefully from every word. The pen of this author is executed in a beautiful fashion, and before you know it, you are in the story, living the moment. This book was so wonderful that my husband who doesn’t even read books was greatly intrigued and kept reading over my shoulder quite a good bit. The action scenes in this book are wildly imaginative and well constructed. J.D does such a good job of world building that you can see everything before you for yourself. The characters have great development as you grow with them throughout the whole book. Truly a 5 star read and should be on everyone’s shelf. Thank you J.D for letting me read this marvelous gem in exchange for my honest review.
