Lee’s punchy immersive style doesn’t take any prisoners. This one grabs you by the collar and hauls you right into the middle of the story and you’d better pay attention, or you’ll miss something vital. But that’s just fine – because I want to pay attention. Her prose sends shivers up my spine and has me alert and scenting danger, along with Sumac. I immediately care about him, even though I’m not totally sure what he is. And as for that sheriff with the squirrel-tail moustache…

In the Mississippi River Valley, during the latter part of the nineteenth century, bounty hunter Sumac seeks shadowy bandit, Night’s Tooth. However, though gifted with magical powers, Sumac isn’t the only one tracking the mysterious outlaw, and he’ll need to keep his wits about him if he aims to get the better of Sheriff Jenson and the golden boys…

A mix of classic western and fantasy, Jean Lee’s novella is set on the edges of her Princeborn universe (see Fallen Princeborn: Stolen). Her use of la

Having read Jean Lee's 'Fallen Princeborn: Stolen' I was really looking forward to this, and I wasn't disappointed.
This is a vivid and immersive little novella, where magic and murder abound in a gritty and desperate old 'wild west'. The realistic setting and surreal characters collide in a strange and utterly intriguing way, making the reader anxious to know more of this unfolding story.
And surely there is much more to come... can't wait!

Night’s Tooth is the first book in the Tales of the River Vine series. This is a fascinating old-time western combined with bounty hunters with magic powers. This is a very interesting premise and is well written with great characters and realistic settings.

I'm looking forward to reading more of this series.

Awesome read but I did not know who to root for there in the end. I am hoping the next book will tell how I should feel (lol). This is not a cliff hanger necessarily but it does leave room for more story. Looking forward to it.
