History was never my favorite subject, but I really enjoy reading books with some (accurate) history in them. Being entertained while learning something is definitely the best way to attain knowledge. Blood Trail hit that nail on the proverbial head. It was more than a history lesson, it was a satisfying western thriller.

Dylan and Mort are both on the search for gold. They head to the old Spanish Trail where it is said to be buried. However, in the end gold isn't all it's cracked up to be and th

An exciting and thought provoking Western genre novel that surrounds the life of a grounded man living in a corrupt time, surrounded by men with few good principles. I love the style of the writing, which I thought was very Texan. A real page turner, I strongly recommend this book to those who love Westerns and those who are new to it, as this is a good book to start reading Westerns.

Lambert is a good writer with skills that makes his books interesting and engaging.

Westerners are not my usual genre. But, I can almost see the prairie and smell the campfires. I gave it 5***** because it was well written and it's a great story with shades of history and I love the main characters.

As a general rule I do not read westerns, but the author is a local citizen and asked for my opinion. Surprisingly I liked the characters and the general story line. Though some of the action seems formulated to give a history lesson, it may be this is typical of this genre. I was a bit disappointed in the ending as it seemed to stop suddenly. I see in the publishers description it will be a series, but I still think it could have had a smoother ending and still set the stage for the next novel. ...more

I don't usually read westerns but this book was recommended to me by a friend that has good tastes in books so I tried reading it. I am so glad that I listened to my friend as I really enjoyed reading this.

I was lured in by the friendship that Mort and Dylan had and of course, the last part was touching and I do hope that they will be together again soon. I also liked that the element of romance but I was more focused on Dylan's relationship with other people. For some reason, I just didn't like

Western, historical, and romance.

Enjoyed the easy flowing story of 2 men in 1800s traveling too Texas. They are if different ages and personalities but need each other. They join a small wagon group after running from bandits. This does end with story to continue when the younger man realizes he may have a child. He had become involved with a woman who had been abandoned by her husband. Several historical references and easy reading.

Good first effort.

I enjoy westerns. This story was a good one. Although the story was at times, a bit slow but the story did pick up as it went along. While not all the story was easily understood, the action did continue. I'll think about the next episodes when I find them.

Obviously self-published. This was a selection for my book group and I just couldn't get through it. The editing was non-existent and the story didn't hold my interest.

A 6th generation Texan, I am proud to be descended from a family who has resided here under four flags. I enjoy researching my family and relating the stories and tales of their time in Western fiction. History covers the Texas landscape like a multi-colored quilt, each square particular to the different cultures and traditions. Texas will always have an aura of adventure and a certain mystery ...more
