One thought on “The Rose of the West

  1. Jordan

    You ve gotta love a good steampunk western, and Mark Bondurant s debut novel certainly delivers The pace is a bit leisurely in the first half, and a couple artifacts from previous versions of the story occasionally pop up, but on the whole I really enjoyed this one I received my copy in exchange for an honest review through the FirstReads program.Deke Hayden is product of the American West, raised among the Paiutes and fighting by their side against Mexico and their allies after his parents were [...]

    Welcome to Steampunk World I am a steampunk neophyte, and didn t quite know what to expect, my fuzzy conception of steampunk being over conceptualized computers and other gadgets I did some research and learned about it For those of you who are like me and lack being up to speed with this stuff, steampunk today means anachronistic steam technology in a time which did not have it The plots therefore are basically alternate history kinds of stories, where some basic concept is historically correc [...]

    The story is full of action You never get bored because there is always something happening or someone getting into trouble Sometimes the action happens way to fast and since there isn t much dialog you may get lost a bit Regarding the characters, I liked Kay She had a strong personality and was a true fighter, but I didn t like Deke He never thought things through and was a bit stupid sometimes Who in their rigth mind goes on a roadtrip around America while there is a war going on Makes no sens [...]

    I received The Rose of the West from Giveaways The story revolves around Kay and Deke, seventeen year olds with very little family It is the story of how they came to meet in the Wild West and takes place during the Civil War To be honest it took me quite some time to really get into the story I found the first hundred pages to be fairly slow The main characters meet in chapter thirteen and from that point on the story really picked up By the end of the book I ended up enjoying the story It was [...]

    This was a very entertaining read It was my first steampunk novel and I wasn t sure what to expect The steampunky parts blend into the story quite naturally and I like the way the book starts as two different storylines accompanying the two main characters on their way to meet each other The characters are perhaps a little stereotype, but nevertheless I like all of them and it was fun to join them on their wild ride through the West The love story is very sweet.

  7. L"Artiste

    A fast paced, thrilling adventure ride through a place and time I don t read about often, but should I enjoyed it thoroughly You really get a great sense of the characters and their surroundings I also appreciated the strong female characters, who were always underestimated by the men and always outsmarted them I was so excited to win a signed copy Thanks so much Mark Bondurant and I would definitely read another one of his books.

  8. Claire

    A wonderful fast paced read that embraces the recklessness of youth and holds you captive for the whole wild ride.
