Gunnie Rose is the lone survivor after her team is ambushed. Alone, she manages to fulfill her duties and return home only to find one more task waiting for her.
In a world where the US collapsed following the assignation of FDR in 1930 and divided up between warring factions. Lizbeth Rose becomes a hired gun in the western territory of Texoma.
When she is hired to be a guide and bodyguard to a couple of Wizards from the Russian controlled west coast, she signs on, only to learn more about why they are hunting Alex Karkarov. KarKarov is dead, Gunnie Rose killed him. He raped her mother, fathering a child, when they the magicians learn he is dead, they decide to look for his daughter, Lisbeth’s half-sister.
Trusting the wizards doesn’t come easy for Gunnie Rose, especially with the history of her own conception but when bullets and magic are flying, you have to trust someone. As their enemies’ numbers swell, it seems none of them will make it out alive, but a sorcerer is no match for a gun’s bullet.
Is it magic or her skill with a gun that brings Lizbeth Rose back to Texoma? Perhaps, she is her father’s daughter after all?
An excellent story of a woman who does what she has to do to survive and takes her happiness where she can. Charlain Harris has a way of creating a world we believe possible and characters who thrive there.
