Book Description

Pressed on all sides by a seemingly omnipotent being called the Rhetor and chased by desperados, the protagonists of The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree are led across the desert to confront their mysterious antagonist by the Outlaw King himself, the wizened gunslinger Normand Kaliburn.

When one of their own is captured and taken beyond the Wildlands to the heart of the Antargata K-Setra, our heroes will learn the true origins of Ed Brigham's fantasy world... and that incredible revelation will shatter everything they thought they knew about the secret world of Destin.

Inspired by the wainscot and portal classics he grew up with, S. A. Hunt's The Outlaw King series is a visionary epic that will dive into the metaphysical center of what it means to create...and what it means to destroy. Join our protagonists as they go from modern-day Earth to the sands of an exotic parallel world, where a climactic battle will take place on the shores of consciousness...and challenge the rules of the written word itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning thrill ride March 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Books like this are the reason I feel in love with reading in the first place. Holy shnikies what a ride this book was. Building on the already excellent foundation of the first the characters deepen becoming even more human and striking in their characters and motivations. Similarly the plot line becomes even more complex and intricate, rather than becoming burdensome this actually clarifies and strengthens the story. The whole is becoming clear but it is a masterwork of such scope and reach as to put shame to a Bosch mural. The level of talent and care that went into crafting this story are breathtaking and has no easy parallels in contemporary literature. It's like an onion, you can appreciate it on any one of it's many levels and yet if you can begin to appreciate the interlocking pieces as a whole it takes on a whole new depth. There is a level of philosophical contemplation present in the writing that is far beyond what many of us ever begin to approach in our own day to day lives and I can tell that this series is going to be one that I continue to read and enjoy many times over in the future and will constantly surprise and reveal more to me as I do so.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am lost beyond all words because the third book is not out! GET.THIS.SERIES. Do you like Stephen King? Do you like Dean Koontz? Do you like fiction, period? I am blown away that this man's books are not in every bookstore on the planet and on every bookshelf of any self-respecting sci-fi lover. Post-Apocalyptic/Wild West/Sci-Fi/Love. I just left what is probably the craziest message on S.A. Hunt's website...BEGGING him for the 3rd book. You will too.

After reading the first book, I was excited to get my hands on a copy of the second. Much like the first one, the author spends a lot of time on character development and keeping you interested in the goals, struggles, and desires of the characters-- and that's really what stories are about.

Author Sam Hunt expands upon the work in his novel by further fleshing out the world and the machinations behind it. During the story, one gets a feeling of peeling back the veil to see what lies beneath-- that is, how the fantasy world of Destin relates to the real one. It's got a very wonderful meta-fiction vibe that takes you on a fun ride without breaking immersion, which is a tough line to straddle.

In this novel, we see a few characters we only saw a little of in the previous section get more proper spotlight. The outlaw king Normand ends up leaving his kingdom to once again venture forth like in the books Ross's father wrote, and Seymour, the mad gunman, peppers the text with comic relief that provides a good contrast with the deadly serious situations the characters find themselves in. Ross's mother also gets her time to shine, and lays out a considerable amount of whoop-ass.

As the book is the second in the trilogy, the full arc is not yet finished. But this chunk of delicious story makes me salivate for a third helping of Destin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Fantastic June 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sam Hunt should be famous, reaping the rewards of two bestsellers for The Whirlwind and the Thorn Tree, as well as this book, the second in the Outlaw King Series. These two books can easily match if not exceed best-selling authors in the genre including King, Abercrombie, and others.

Destin, the world that Hunt has built for these books is so fascinating and so credible at the same time, it is just a sheer pleasure to read. It is a completely different world than Earth, and yet at times there are small similarities. His worldbuilding techniques are masterclass as he shows us how the world works and the differences in the species of people, flora and fauna. I love the landscapes. With just a few of the right words, Hunt paints gorgeous pictures of the lands the characters travel through. He makes me want to physically see some of the places he describes, and I can imagine them in my head populated by the characters as if the novel were a movie. Very cinematic!

You must read the books in order, so if you haven't read Whirlwind, Read that first, or you won't get as much meaning out of this book. Law of the Wolf starts directly after Whirlwind ends, and we follow the intriguing characters through one battle after another. Don't start reading late at night unless you plan on staying up for many hours, because you will be glued to these pages, unable to stop reading until the book is done.

Many of the unanswered questions of book one are revealed in book two. Sawyer is a primary character in this book, and he really comes up to the challenge. Ross finds a new talent and reconnects with a friend. Noreen is out of control because of deep sadness, we see Sardis a bit more, and a lot more of Ardelia and her swordwives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series! April 20, 2014
By Jan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading Law of the Wolf and all I can say is WOW (with a whole lot of implied exclamation points.) I wanted to write about how blown my mind is by the twist at the end, but then I realized... there are about three plot twists back-to-back-to-back that I did not see coming! I'm pretty sure I read the last few chapters bug-eyed and with my mouth hanging open in a most unflattering manner.

This book, and Sam's writing as a whole, is amazing on so many levels. He creates this wonderfully foreign, yet not so foreign, world then picks you up and plops you right in the middle of it. He reaches inside of his mind and soul and pulls out these crazy, wonderful, funny, compelling, heart stealing characters to populate the land and then sends them off on epic adventures that are like none other.

At first, my favorite character was Seymour. I even went around for several days randomly wanting to blurt out, “It's the bubbles, love!” As the book went on, his role shrank while Sawyer's grew. So now, I have to say, at least for now, Sawyer is my favorite character. (He also looks exactly like Josh Holloway, in my mind.) (Yum.) I was kind of ambivalent about him in book 1, so I'm glad we got to see so much of him in this volume. I hope I get to see more Noreen in book three. Of the trio of Earth heroes, I'm least attached to her, but I think it's because she hasn't had her chance to shine. (Sidenote/plea to Sam: Is this going to be a trilogy? If so, reconsider and please don't stop with book three. We need more, more, more!!)

I can't leave this review without mentioning that this is the highest quality example of descriptive writing out there. Oftentimes, I found myself pausing in places to read the previous paragraph, just because it was so beautiful.

More About the Author

S. A. Hunt is a U.S. veteran with very little money and far too much free time, which is now spent telling lies about time-bending cowboys and brainwashing witches. He lives in a shack in the woods in Summerville, GA, where he writes books, drinks moonshine out of a clay jug, and plays music with spoons.

You might be able to pigeonhole him in the "fantasy" and "horror" genres, but really he just uses them as backdrops. His stories are mostly studies of the human condition and the power of love and friendship--and a character that's truly human can transcend the boundaries of its genre.

In high school he was named a "Mentor of Poetry, Prose, and Performance" by the National Creative Society and in 2014 he won Reddit.com/r/Fantasy's 2014 Self-Published Book of the Year.
