Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Set in the lawless Texas landscape, this latest installment in Sherman's Baron series (after The Baron Brand) reaches a watershed on the eve of the Civil War. Grieving the shameful death of his wife, Caroline, estranged patriarch Martin Baron must mend fences with his son, Anson the new owner of the family's Box B Ranch in order to face a deadly threat from a fractious neighbor, Matteo Aguilar. Martin bought the Box B land from Aguilar's family, and Matteo is determined to take it back by force; the feud intensifies as Martin discovers his wife's death is linked to Aguilar family actions. Ruthless opportunist Jules Reynaud, still smarting from Martin's breakup of an illegal slave deal, joins forces with Matteo, while an Apache Indian and former Box B hand, Mickey Bone, equivocates. A boyhood mentor for Anson, Bone has returned from exile with a new wife and baby, but he is not sure where his loyalties lie. Martin gets support from other locals, from a lone Texas Ranger trying to recruit him and from neighbor Roy Killian, who is desperately trying to escape the romantic intentions of wealthy Wanda Fancher, her nagging mother, his own mother and her new husband, all of whom now fill his small ranch house. Spur Award-winner Sherman explores character relationships in true family saga style, then leads the frontier folk into an inevitable, bloody shoot-'em-up, leaving loose ends for future installments to tie up. Strong female characters and plenty of romance could help this title bridge the western gender gap. Agent, Peter Matson.

Format: Hardcover
THE BARON WAR is as big and bold as the land it is written about. Follow the continuing saga of Martin Baron as he strives to build an an emire in an unforgiving land. Along the way Martin must deal with an old enemy who is out to take back the land Martin has legally purchased as well as trying to heal the rift that has come between he and his son Anson. Jory Sherman has once again writen a book in this outatanding series that can stand alone. THE BARON WAR will leave the reader anxiously awaiting the next book in this wonderful series. Sherman shows why he is an award winning author.

BARONS WAR TO ME WAS DISAPPOINTING BECAUSE HE BROKE UP THE FLOW OF THE STORY. WITH SO MANY CHARACTERS TO PORTRAY, GETS TOO CONFUSING.I STOPPED IN MIDDLE OF BOOK, WENT TO ANOTHER WESTERN AUTHOR. THIS WILL BE MY LAST BOOK BY THIS AUTHOR OF THE BARONS.I MAY TRY ANOTHER, IF THE REVIEWS BY READERS ARE FAVORABLE BY MORE THEN ONE REVIEWER.

This may be the best book of the six book series. I've read it twice for there is so many different characters and senarios you can't digest it all in one reading. I absolutely will keep these book and read all six again.
