Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Reece Murphy "The Rose Kid" longs for freedom from the Rose Riders, a violent group of bandits who aren't afraid to use dirty tactics to get their hands on valuables. He was forced into the Rose Riders because of a mysterious coin. Now, to gain his freedom, he has to help Luther Rose, the Boss, find out who killed his brother. Sixteen-year-old Charlotte Vaughn is determined to be a female reporter like Nellie Bly. She is heading to Prescott to chronicle the opening of the Prescott and Arizona Central rail line. The recent death of her father has made it imperative that Charlotte find a way to help her mother keep the family mining business together and away from the greedy hands of her uncle. Unfortunately, her plans change abruptly when the Rose Riders take the train hostage. Reece and Charlotte's world collide. While there is action on every page, the pace remains slow. The tension between Reece and the Rose Riders feels artificial and melodramatic despite the constant threat of violence from Luther. Charlotte's dedication to getting the facts is an admirable quality, as is her persistent personality. She clashes with Reece at every turn and theirs proves to be an intriguing and complex friendship, a highlight of the story. Bowman does the Arizona Territory justice, making this desolate and tough landscape the perfect setting for a train robbery gone wrong. VERDICT This is for die-hard readers of the Western genre. Purchase where the first title remains popular.—Sarah Wethern, Douglas County Library, MN --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


"Twisting, thrilling, and a wild ride from start to finish. Prepare to be hooked.”Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author of the Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

"I devoured this thrilling, fast-paced battle, from its setting in the American West to its cast of vivid characters. “ –Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author
"Rugged and ruthless, Retribution Rails brings readers into the expanding—and lawless—Wild West." –Mindy McGinnis, author of Not a Drop to Drink

"Erin Bowman has woven a world as convincing as it is gripping. I flew through these pages with abandon, and I’m certain many readers will find themselves doing the same.” - Ryan Graudin, author of the Wolf By Wolf duology

"[E]ntertaining." –Kirkus

"Bowman's attention to period details, sexism, and racism flesh out the fast-paced plot in a most satisfying way." –Booklist

...For die-hard readers of the Western genre." –School Library Journal
