In this follow up to The Dead of Winter Lee Collins gives us a second installment of his Cora Oglesby saga She Returns From War tells the story of Victoria Dawes an English woman finding her grit in the American WestHere s all you need to know Lee Collins has improved his writing but not nearly enough to make this tale snap with electricity Collins does a great job in the early portion of this novel I mean to say that the wheels don t completely fall off until midway through chapter three The first three chapters are uite good I hope that Collins continues improving and polishing his craft If he does I might be able to write a positive review of his work some day But that day is not todayCollins is clumsy with the female characters in his charge Either the women are two dimensional drunks classic western prostitutes or prissy high society types Oh wait he also includes a stereotypical Native American woman character who is a skin walker trying to reap revenge on the white man My issue isn t with the choice of characters that Collins employs within his storytelling My problem is that Collins fails to provide his characters with enough depth and substance that his characters deserve As a result we encounter a story jammed with cardboard cutouts lacking all sense of meaning Alison Larkin is the Narrator She uses an English accent for the most part since the story is inferred as Victoria s story Larkin changes accents when doing American characters and I had a real issue here While the English accent works uite nicely for the character of Victoria Larkin butchers all other accents in an over the top cartoonish rendition of cowboy drawl gone bad If you can look beyond this Larkin isn t a half bad reader though she would do well to back down the level of dramatic inflection There is a musical score that plays at the beginning and end of each audio CD Every time I heard this I kept thinking it sounded like a second rate retread of the Titanic soundtrack with a not so haunting female vocalist in the background lamenting some long lost love If any of you ever find yourself in the position of choosing music to go in these spots in an audio production please remember that less is truly All that is needed is a simple single instrument that reflects the tone of the story where it is broken by the physical limits of the CD Aside from Skin Walkers and vampires there s not much new in the way of dark things that need to be killed We do encounter mysterious wolf like things at the very beginning but these are only with us for a short while If you are contemplating giving Lee Collins a go start here and see how you like his style I think Collins is at his best in the first three chapters If you like this story then maybe take a gander at his first try The Dead of Winter Though if in it was up tuh me I d stop dead in my tracks here It s all downhill beyond this point

A fun and entertaining ride through the really wild west The Founding FieldsSo the second novel in the Cora Oglesby series is certainly interesting Whilst it may not be as good as The Dead of Winter which was a superb debut it didn t uite match the high uality set by The Dead of Winter which is a bit of a let down However there are still strong elements about this novel and you should not pass it upFour years after the horrific events in Leadville a young woman from England Victoria Dawes sets into motion a series of events that will lead Cora and herself out into the New Mexico desert in pursuit of Anaba a Navajo witch bent on taking revenge for the atrocities committed against her peopleAs the blurb states it s set four years after the Leadville incident detailed in The Dead of Winter and if anyone hasn t read that book first and is reading this review I highly recommend you read that book before reading any further Cora s character is really fleshed out in The Dead of Winter but here she s not as enjoyable maybe because the POV is dominated by Victoria Dawes who makes a very interesting counterpart to the eccentric Cora OglesbyOne of the main reasons why this book wasn t as good as the first is the reason mentioned above Cora isn t anywhere near as likable as she is when she s the main character of book one There are some places in the book where I couldn t stand her and I was somewhat glad that Victoria Dawes was a strong lead But she doesn t really have the same memorability that Cora had in The Dead of Winter and as a result of that the novel itself isn t as strong as it should beRead the Rest of the Review

Download Ó She Returns From War 106 Nto motion a series of events that will lead Cora and herself out into the New Mexico desert in pu. 3 12 Stars In a word Atmospheric two feisty heroines some poignant moments but an ultimately unfocused plotThe seuel to last year s The Dead of Winter a book I loved and gave five stars to She Returns From War unfortunately fell short for me for several reasons The first book was driven by the strong and feisty character of Cora a monster hunter who rides a horse and carries a gun Collins story and pacing were excellent and he surprised the reader with a twist at the end that I thought was brilliant But She Returns From War lacked the cohesiveness of the first book The story was confusing and fractured the monsters were not nearly as scary and worst of all Cora seemed to be a different character this time around What made me keep turning pages was the character of Victoria a young woman from Oxford England who finds herself completely out of her comfort zone after an encounter with a supernatural creatureThe story is told from Victoria s point of view and starts with a bang as she and her parents are riding through the countryside in a carriage discussing her impending betrothal to a man she has no interest in when their carriage is set upon by a group of large dog like creatures This encounter results in a terrible accident and while Victoria survives both her parents are killed Vowing to avenge their deaths she sets out on a uest to find someone to help her Her circuitous path eventually leads her to Albuuerue New Mexico where our erstwhile heroine Cora now lives Cora has retired from monster hunting after her exciting adventures in Leadville Colorado and she s opened a bar called Ben s Print Shop an inside joke and a nod to events from The Dead of Winter Victoria tries in vain to convince Cora to return to England with her and help her exact revenge on her parentsBut after Victoria is abducted one night and taken to an abandoned barn in the middle of the desert Cora changes her tune and decides to go after the creatures that captured Victoria and then let her go One of them a supernaturally strong vampire calls himself Fodor Glava a vampire that Cora killed in the first book and Cora won t rest until she finds out why he might still be alive Controlling the vampire is a mysterious Indian woman who has many powers among them the ability to change into animal form The story picks up momentum from this point until the expected final showdown at the endI m wondering if Collins intended for his story to end up being a humorous buddy tale since the bulk of the book involves Cora and Victoria reluctantly working together to kill the vampire and the Indian woman Cora dislikes Victoria the moment they meet and continues to hurl insults at her for the entire story often having to do with her feminine ways and her inability to do anything practical When Victoria first walks into Cora s bar all the men think she s a prostitute and even Cora calls her a lady of the night I never got over the uncomfortable feeling I had every time Cora spoke to Victoria It was just odd to hear an older woman referencing a younger woman s pretty little rear over and over again At one point Cora decides to teach Victoria how to shoot a gun and if I d been Victoria I would have turned the gun on Cora and the story would have turned out much differentlyAlso frustrating for me was the direction the story took after Victoria s parents are killed As implausible as it seems for a young English woman to head off on her own to America to try and find a mysterious woman who may be able to help her and then convince this woman to come all the way back to England with her I was disappointed when the story shifted away from the frankly intriguing Hell Hounds and focused on vampires and the mysterious Indian woman who holds power over them Collins seems to be interested in creating sympathy for the plight of the Indians than making his story flow like it did in The Dead of Winter There were some interesting moments near the end when Victoria realizes she has a special power of her own but much of the rambling plot simply slowed down the momentum of the storyThe character of Victoria was the best thing about She Returns From War She s an unwed unchaperoned woman in the 1800s all alone in a harsh and dangerous Old West America Collins does a superb job of portraying her growth from a virtuous innocent to literally fighting for her life against supernatural creatures and trying to sidestep the lewd advances of just about every male character in the town of Albuuerue By the end of the story I was cheering Victoria s pluck and courage and I would love to read of her adventures I don t know for sure whether or not there will be a third book in the series but I did get a sense at the end that Collins could easily add another book and turn this into a trilogy Victoria s parents remain unavenged a fact that begs for another installmentAnd yes there were some moments when the old Cora made an appearance a Cora made vulnerable by past tragedies and I could glimpse the reasons I loved her in the first book But it just wasn t enough for me this time around I do hope the author continues Victoria s story because that is one I am anxious to read aboutMany thanks to Angry Robot
