The plot was engrossing enough, but there were so many grammar mistakes and story mistakes (like one line says it's day, then 2 paragraphs later it's night) it looked like it had never been edited, even by the author. This guy is compared to Louis L'Amour on the cover but he doesn't come close. You'll have to overlook the mistakes but, like I said, the plot was engrossing enough. It's just annoying to have so many English mistakes.
