Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen
“Wake of Vultures will kick your a** up one page and down the other.” —io9
Nettie Lonesome dreams of a greater life than toiling as a slave in the sandy desert. But when a stranger attacks her, Nettie wins more than the fight.
Now she’s got friends, a good horse, and a better gun. But if she can’t kill the thing haunting her nightmares and stealing children across the prairie, she’ll lose it all—and never find out what happened to her real family.
Wake of Vultures is the first novel of the Shadow series featuring the fearless Nettie Lonesome.
