Here are some of the five star reviews posted on LuLu and Amazon! Thanks to everyone who takes the time to give their support. It means a lot to us authors!
This novella is the prelude to a longer book, which I am now looking forward to immensely. Brauneis creates a solid sense of place -- the opening scenes, of a pair of outlaws fleeing a posse on horseback, through blizzard conditions, is so vivid I could imagine myself there. Jack and Leon, outlaws but not truly bad men, stumble across a ranch and meet a family whose welcome shows them a new way of life, but all too soon reality closes back in . . . The author's clear understanding of horses adds to the sense of time and place. Fans of the old ‘Alias Smith and Jones’ tv series will enjoy this, as well anyone who likes action, adventure, and the possibility of redemption.

I liked the relationship between Peter/Leon and Mathew/Jack, they share a deep bond. The action starts right at the beginning and keeps going. I am looking forward to The Navarre Link.

I am really looking forward to the next installment the author has done a great job with world building. Love the boys and had a hard time putting it down. I enjoyed the little bit of humor that sneaks in.
This is such a great read from the beginning right thru to the end. I love the relationship between these two outlaws, Nash and Jack. Wanted and on the run, they still have a sense of humor and decency. Coming to care about the family that takes them in when they are finally able to lose the posse that has been chasing them. Capture, escape, a very smart horse, a creative meal on the run, this story just keeps giving you more and more. I am looking forward to reading more of it.
This author has presented us with a sympathetic pair of anti-heroes, and given them a compelling storyline as they seek shelter with a warm and generous family who don't know they are wanted. The posse hunting them don't know they are trying for pardons either and are determined to bring them in. Vivid descriptive language paints a world so real you can almost feel the ice and snow and a characterful horse brings the kind of light relief which could only have been written by someone who knows horses intimately. A wonderful read for fans of Westerns.
