Suspenseful, fast-paced, and so very atmospheric, the dirt and the dust, the speech patterns, I felt thoroughly pulled in to this western world.

Kate, dressed as a boy, saddles up and makes it her mission to hunt down and kill the men who hung her father.

Kate’s arc progressed fantastically, full of fury and grief, gradually healing without ever losing her fire.

The characters riding alongside Kate were memorable, too. Jesse and Will’s backstory informed their actions, so even when I didn’t agree with something they said or did, I at least understood why, plus I liked Jesse’s vulnerability, I liked that oftentimes he seemed more fragile than Kate, which isn’t exactly commonplace in depictions of gender.

I loved Liluye, an Apache girl attempting to make her way home, I know it’s unlikely to happen but she really deserves a book all her own. I loved that she’s so true to her convictions and insistent on respect, and how sharp and observant she is, she has such a good read on everyone, intelligence is one of my favorite things in a character and she has that in abundance.

While there is a romance in Vengeance Road, I liked that it’s mostly a quiet presence throughout and in the moments when it does become more prominent their dire circumstances aren’t forgotten.

The story could have easily wrapped up earlier than it did and I very much appreciated that the author instead took some time to let things settle, it made for an emotionally satisfying ending. ( )

Edelweiss provided me with an ARC. I'll definitely recommend this to any of our teens who like stories with tough girl main characters or westerns. It's really well written, and the story is compelling. Written in dialect, it reminds me of True Grit. However, I didn't love the portrayal of the Apache and Liluye in particular, as it feels very VERY stereotypical and plays on a number of tired tropes. It could have been worse, but it also could have been better, and with so few depictions of Native American characters in YA lit to begin with, it would have been nice for this one to be better than it was.

"Now you listen and you listen good" I says. "I'm going to Goldwaters, and I'm gonna get what you ain't giving up. Then I'm gonna ride after yer friends and do to them exactly what's in store for you - what's in store for every yellow-bellied coward who goes round stringing up innocent men."
Can I just say that I love westerns?
Vengeance Road was a fast paced, action packed story about a girl who discovers that not only has her house burned down but her fathers body is hanging from a mesquite tree in her front yard. Never a dull moment that's for sure.

Kate is fierce and will stop at nothing to avenge her fathers death. All her life her father drilled into her head that if something happens to him she is to find his old friend Abe. This is where Jesse and Will come in (both of whom I loved by the way). All she cares about is getting her revenge and being left alone. Much to her dismay, they decide to tag along. Secrets are revealed and somewhere along the way Kate begins to question her need for vengeance. Yes, she wants to take out the Rose Riders but she doesn't want to be like them either. It was nice witnessing her change over the course of the story.

This book has everything I could want in a good western. Cowboys, shoot outs, saloons, and plenty of bloodshed (which is to be expected considering the title). There was some romance thrown in there as well but it was quite a slow build which I definitely appreciated. I'm all for a good romance but in a book like this I was worried it would distract from the story. Thankfully, that wasn't the case.

Overall, this is definitely worth reading. It also helps that the cover is gorgeous! ( )

A pretty fun YA western -- though maybe fun isn't the right word, given the heroine is seeking to avenge her father's murder? ¯_(ツ)_/¯. I really enjoyed this one. ( )

I read 141 pages and just couldn't get into this one. I know a LOT of people love it. It just wasn't for me.
