Lone Star Ice Fire

Rate this book
Electric blues guitarist Sonny Blaine was the hottest player in Texas, a cool-cat bad boy who seemed to have it all. His kid brother, Walker, shy and plain, wasn’t someone you’d look at twice—until he, too, took up blues guitar. The two driven brothers face off in their music and their women with all their souls, bringing the music of Texas to life.

Quite an interesting book. I learned a lot about the Austin music scene from the mid 1960s through the 1980s.

The sibling rivalry was very well written. I also really enjoyed how the characters' actions were tied very clearly to their emotions and thoughts. I appreciated that the author gave us that understanding.

I also really liked how the author took two female characters, both who had been sexually assaulted as young girls, and how each character took that trauma and had it affect her in completely different ways.

My main complaint was Bonnell. He was the only character that seemed like a cut and dried villain. I suppose though that some people are simply assholes and that Bonnell was one of them and that growing up with a lot of money and power made him want to flaunt both. So I didn't let my feelings about him lower my rating any.

This novel about the Austin music scene was written quite a few years ago, but I only recently stumbled across it in a local book store. While I don’t know a lot about the music world, it’s obvious that Brady does. That seemingly intimate knowledge of the blues/rock and roll landscape is what makes “Lone Star Ice and Fire” so compelling. A well-written story with solid, fully-developed characters and a spit-fire pace. I highly recommend this book.
