"I was mostly on the edge of my seat - the action doesn't stop, but there is so much wit, love, and just plain fabulous life in this story, I loved it all the way through. Andrew Joyce is the real deal, and an awesome storyteller in his own right, right up there with Mr Twain." -- Jo Robinson, Feed My Reads
"In each of his books, Andrew Joyce uses the setting as almost another character. We see the "Wild West" growing up, getting tamed by settlers, farmers, the railroad. We see Alaska just starting to face those same challenges. Despite its bare bones approach to sensory descriptions, the spare prose and dialog convey the overwhelming and impersonal power, beauty, and threat of the country as Molly and Huck make their way. if westerns as a genre are about seizing control of our own fate--the ultimate American-defining trope--then Huck Finn and Molly Lee's story is as American as a western could possibly be. Certainly, I think it deserves every one of those five stars." -- Barb Taub, Writing & Coffee
" . . . it took me a couple of head shakes to be able to accept Huck and Tom as late middle-aged lawmen come adventurers but this book really made it believable. Fans of adventure and edge of your seat thrillers can't do better than this book. It's a superb read and very well written and one that will take the reader on an epic adventure with a beloved literary character who has grown up." -- All Things Books
