Publishers Weekly weighs in on RED WATERS RISING:
“In the fascinating third Devil’s West novel…. Gilman successfully renders a magic-riddled, mysterious, even ambiguous weird West where spirits drop in and out of conversation and danger lurks around every bend in the road. Part coming-of-age story, part adventure, Isobel and Gabriel’s journeys don’t always offer neat explanations or solutions, but they satisfy nonetheless.
This volume doesn’t wrap up every thread, but it brings the current story line to an appropriate conclusion while setting up potential future installments.”
(I think PW’s figured me out – not every story has a full-stop ending, just “this is where we wrap those threads up for now…”)
