Publisher's Summary

Laura Elliston and William Kindle are on the run - from the army and from every miscreant in the West eager to claim the $500 bounty for Laura's capture as their own. But the danger isn't just from those pursuing them. Laura and Kindle both have demons of their own and pasts that won't stay dead. Exhausted, scared, scarred, and surrounded by enemies, neither realizes the greatest danger is yet to come.

Blood Oath is the second novel in a gripping historical fiction series.

Can't get enough!!

I love the performance and how hooked I am to these characters! It gets so dark at times but it adds to the appeal.

Great Narration

I really like the narrator of this series. I don't know if I'd enjoy these books as much if not for how the narration makes the story come to life. I was a bit bored at times and wasn't sure if I was going to keep up with the series, but it really picks up at the end. I want to know what happens next!

Second in an engrossing series

I listened to and loved the first book in this series and was just as engrossed in this book. The heroine is flawed by naïveté, but strong and grows throughout. Excellent narration. Be warned, there are disturbing descriptions of prostitution in this book, but it is not gratuitous; just part of what life was like for women in this time and locale. It was a great listen and am now on the third and final book in the series.

More Please! And Ahem . . .

So I loved Sawbones. And Blood Oath is no different, I still love Laura and Kindle's fun banter, and I'm still in complete AWE of the incredible narration, and the writing, where this world is absolutely believable and on point. So why is this only 4 for me? A couple of reasons. First, I Do honestly equate the books with Outlander, the characters and their stories are that strong (not any time travel). As I said in the Sawbones review, the books aren't as long. So this book felt incomplete to me. I don't know where we are going. There is a big cliffhanger. I'm fairly certain Book 3, coming out soon thankfully, will solve that for me. So I feel like I just digested the middle third of Outlander, if that makes sense. I don't like being left like that.

Also, the narrator does make some glaring mispronounciations that I thought would be corrected here. I want the world to know this land, and how to say Kiowa (Ky-o-wa, like Kyle- definitely not KEEowa. And Palo Duro, like Pal-o not Paul-o, you know like Palo Alto. And Washita (wash-i-tah not washy-ta). And travois ( tra-voy). If you don't believe me check your Meriam-Webster app and both listen/look. The book and narration, and frankly the country itself, they are all just too brilliant to get these big little things wrong.

So that's why. Otherwise, bravo and I'm lining up for the next! Definitely makes my best #beachreads list!!!

AUTHOR REVIEW

Any additional comments?

This was not an easy book to write. It is a rollercoaster of emotions - happiness, fear, anger, terror - as Laura and Kindle come to terms with everything that happened to them at the end of Sawbones (no spoilers!). After listening to Suehyla El-Attar read SAWBONES, I knew she would bring all of the roiling emotions to life and oh my gosh did she ever. These characters are flawed and complicated and Suehyla brings them to life in a stunning way. I recommend this audiobook no only because it's my work, but mostly for you to experience a book truly come alive.
