Let's get one thing out in the open before we move on with the review. You don't read western series because you are after great literature, you read them for pure escapism and that's what this is.

The writing style varies some parts are very descriptive other times the author skims over scenes and that's why I have dropped it a star, if he had been more consistent then it would have got 5 stars. That said it's still a good story for the beginning of the series.

It's a revenge tale, Hearne and his neighbour return from a trip to Tucson to find their wives raped and one of them murdered by a gang. This sets them off on a vengeance trail. Now the story starts to move along the well worn path, and this is where it falls down as well. Some scenes are put in like they are just fillers, others could have been expanded to add more depth to the characters, maybe because these tales are from a time when westerns were churned out the authors work was badly edited, because he can write and at times that comes through.

All that being said I still enjoyed the tale and will download the next in the series straight away.

The kindle is a great thing for westerns, it may save the genre from disappearing altogether, and I for one am glad I have found it again.

If you like your tales full of action and fun then you won't be disappointed by this one.

Time to saddle up partner and hit the trail again.

Herne The Hunter: White Death is quite simply a revenge western that sets out the origin of the character that will take us through a series of books. At the start of this book he is happily settled down, having long given up the wild times when he was known as Herne the Hunter. However his contented life is not to last when one night his wife is brutally raped and beaten by a bunch of drunken men. The men have also raped the wife of his neighbour Bill Yates and left her dead.

Herne counts his blessings, at least his wife wasn't killed but she is unable to live with the fact that she was raped by several men, and one morning after putting on the new green dress Herne bought for her she hangs herself. This results in Herne and Yates going off on the vengeance trail.

The story though is excellent and moves at a fast pace - it's very violent but that's to be expected since the books are in the style of the Italian Westerns which were so popular back in the day. There are some great western in-jokes - Nathan Brittles (John Wayne's character from She Wore a Yellow Ribbon) is referenced as is Terry Harknett (the author of the Edge westerns). And at one point Herne books himself on the next train to Yuma - it is leaving at 2:10 in the afternoon, but the train is delayed for an hour so Herne ends up on the 3:10 to Yuma.

Overall then an excellent read - yeah there are some scenes that stretch credibility to breaking point, but then this is a part of the genre. Highly recommended.

Disappointing,the first few pages promise a lot with an interesting story but the author fails to build up any tension and the storyline becomes weak. Suggest the author reads a few Louis L"Amour novels and learns how to describe the people of that era in greater detail. There was a lot of uneccesary violence eg against the rail clerk, which did nothing to enhance the so called reputation of Herne
I was not aware until 75% of the way through the book that you would have to purchase the second book to find out the conclusion of the story
