Staff Reviews


Within the pretty pages of this book is a gritty western containing not only all the gunslinging action your heart could desire, but also a phenomenal story filled with a great cast of characters. Once you meet Serendpity Jones you will only want more of her story. Lyndsay integrates a variety of complex issues into her books with a deft hand that brings the book to life, giving flesh and bone to characters that could’ve easily fallen into stereotypes in a world that at times is painstakingly real and parallel to our own. Annie Oakley doesn’t hold a candle to Serendipity Jones, the best shot in the west.

Description


James Patterson presents a bold new heroine--a cross between Katniss Everdeen and Annie Oakley: Serendipity Jones, the fastest sharpshooter in tomorrow's West.

Seventeen-year-old Serendipity "Pity" Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. She's been offered a life of fame and fortune in Cessation, a glittering city where lawlessness is a way of life. But the price she pays for her freedom may be too great....
In this extraordinary debut from Lyndsay Ely, the West is once again wild after a Second Civil War fractures the U.S. into a broken, dangerous land. Pity's struggle against the dark and twisted underbelly of a corrupt city will haunt you long after the final bullet is shot.
