When Kate Thompson’s father is killed by the notorious Rose Riders for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the eighteen-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there’s room for love in a heart so full of hate.

In the spirit of True Grit, the cutthroat days of the Wild West come to life for a new generation.

I don’t usually care for Westerns that much, but sometimes, they just sound so awesome (and spaghetti westerns are pretty fun), and Vengeance Road does sound pretty intriguing.

Also, cover is very cool.

  1. Honestly, I really just want this because of that GORGEOUS COVER.

  2. Oh yeah, this cover alone makes it an amazing choice. I actually like both versions of True Grit so maybe I should check out this book other than thinking it has an amazing cover. My Wow comes out in September so I feel your pain on waiting… and the wait.

  3. I have this one on my wishlist. I can’t wait for it. Great pick.

  4. This is such a unique cover and you don’t see many Western YA titles, that’s for sure! I haven’t decided for sure if I’ll pick this one up, but it does look interesting!

  5. Hey WoW twin!! 🙂 http://wp.me/p4IAgx-3q

    The stunning cover attracted me as well!

  6. Great pick! And the cover… Gorgeous!
    Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

    My WoW

  7. I love westerns and dust, I’m such a Karl May girl x) That bein said, I love this cover! And the story sounds good, too. 😉

  8. I am really looking forward to this one too. I just requested this one from NetGalley. Not sure if I will be approved, but I am hoping!

  9. Did you get an ARC? There are a million and one giveaways running on Twitter for this book! Jamie (Broke and Bookish) just put one up. Go forth and enter! 😀 I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fantastic day, Cyn 🙂

    Check out my WoW post!

  10. I have never read a western before, but this one looks amazing! I can’t wait to read this one either! Plus that cover is gorgeous!

  11. I think it’s a good cover too, and yeah Westerns… don’t see much of those. Love spaghetti westerns, they had style. 🙂

  12. Awesome pick! This one sounds so unique because I’ve never heard of a YA western. I can’t wait for this one to be released. 🙂

  13. Love the cover of this one, but can’t decide if I want to read it. Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  14. Nobody writes westerns for YA, either!!! How in the world did you find this one! I think I’ll hunt it down just because it’s so unique!!! Almost has a “True Grit” feel to it 🙂

    *waves an enthusiastic HI*
