My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★★★
I’ve never read a sci-fi western before this one, but it was too interesting to pass up! I’m so glad I decided to sign up for this tour because this was such a fun book, and I found an author that I’ll be supporting from here on! I will say, though, that I’m not sure if I’ll read other sci-fi westerns (excluding by this author) after this one.
I adored the characters in Revenge! They were well written and had amazing diversity! This is the first time I’ve read a book with an asexual character in it, and I was so excited to see myself represented there! I also really loved the bond the characters had, especially Ellie and Zach. It was great to get to see things through the perspective of all four of them as well!
The world-building and author’s writing style were also fantastic. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it because I tend to struggle with that, but it was a lot better than I was thinking it would be. It was so easy to get lost in the world, and it felt like I was actually there with the characters.
Disclaimer: I received a finished copy of this book via Pride Book Tours and the author in exchange for an honest review.
