The following review is spoiler free.
Plot: “Westie was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing to stop her except her own reckless ways.”
Overall: As this wound up on several want-to-read lists that I made, I was excited. I was drawn to this book by the premise containing cannibals in the Wild West. I wasn’t expecting the steampunk-fantasy-historical fiction combo that came out if it and that ended up being this book’s downfall. I found myself wanting the plot I knew about going in and disliking the one that showed up along the way. Overall, this book tried to do too many things, making it confusing and unenjoyable.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
I read this book as a part of my debut author’s challenge.
