Let me back up to the cover, where artist Duy Phan brought Nox and his monowheel and toys to life. I was first drawn to this book by the cover art and then the description. That's how you reel in potential readers. Kudos!
Nox, who wears the star of a sheriff on his breast, is actually a bounty hunter in this cruel world where there are no lawmakers and no lawkeepers. Nox strikes fear into the hearts of not only good folks, but also criminals, and he wants them to know he's coming for them. As he hunts for those on the wanted posters to earn some coils, the currency in the Wild North, he also searches for justice--or at least revenge--for his murdered family.
Coilhunter is a well written science fiction western adventure, a real treat for your senses. According to Wilson, the Coilhunter Chronicles will be at least four books, all standalone tales of Nox's adventures, and can be read out of order. I've already pre-ordered Rustkiller, and will be anxiously awaiting its arrival to my Kindle in October. I can't recommend this book enough!
Nox is the Coilhunter, a bounty hunter in a land that might be the only thing tougher than him. The story pulls the reader into his life of searching for wanted criminals, and sandwiched between these captures and killings is his never-ending search for the murderer of his family. Nox moves from one encounter to the next with a melodramatic flair, a one-liner for every situation (though most of his answers usually center around death or a bad outcome for the other person).
The Coilhunter is a man bordering on near superhero status. He has fantastic gear that he employs, and his skills are far above most men. In one instance, when a fleeing criminal takes to the rooftops, Nox “…ran towards the wall, simultaneously throwing a knife from his belt at the stone, where it lodged in place, and then another a little further up, and another higher still. He used them like stairs, dashing up the sides of the blades.” While this might strain one’s belief level, Dean Wilson’s talent makes it all seem like an everyday thing. After all, why wouldn’t the Coilhunter possess these skills?
Though this book leads into a Coilhunter series, Mr. Wilson ties everything up nicely and avoids the potential cliffhanger. This was a quick, enjoyable read and I look forward to the next Coilhunter Chronicles Novel. Five stars.
It is said that a man bent on vengeance should first dig two graves on the theory the seeker of vengeance will need one of them. But really, who knows how many are in urgent need of permanent rest?
In a take-no-prisoners style that may still allow for taking a prisoner now and then, the man with a big heart culls the herd of bad 'uns with brinkmanship triumphs that would do justice to Mission: Impossible. With tumbleweeds, and ghost towns.
If all that does not make sense then just read the book. It's an odd 'un.
where the law keepers aren’t much better than the criminals that they hunt.
The main character suffers from a horrible decimating memory,
which cripples his ability to feel empathy toward others,
and find happiness for himself.
I normally enjoy a lighter, happier story, yet
I'm actually looking forward to reading "RUST",
which is the next book in the series.
giant scorpions along with the usual wild west towns. Instead of a horse this guy rides an oversize bike and manages to save the girl at the end. I will definitely be buying the next book in the series
