Publishers Weekly weighs in on RED WATERS RISING:
“In the fascinating third Devilâ€™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 Gabrielâ€™s journeys donâ€™t always offer neat explanations or solutions, but they satisfy nonetheless.
This volume doesnâ€™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…”)
