    The Shayne-Train

    So I've been reading a lot of sci-fi/fantasy lately. And, knowing myself as I do, I am aware that sometimes it takes me a while to pull my mental space out of these bizarre and wonderful worlds, and back into real life. During that difficult transition period, I sometimes have problems getting into books that don't have swords and magic and robots and lasers and demons. So I think to myself, how about a good old-timey 'oat opera' to ease the shift? And I am SO GLAD that I did. This book is awesome So I've been reading a lot of sci-fi/fantasy lately.

This book is awesome, and the main character Yakima Henry is troubled and noble and near-invincible. And that's exactly what i want, what I need, from a Western novel protagonist. The author paints a grand picture of both setting and characters, bullets ricochet and dig furrows through flesh, whiskey is served by comely whores, and horses' snorts pepper the air. This series is the perfect way to almost come back to the real world.

    3 1/2 stars. This should have called Faith the Whore because her character had the most growth and the plot mainly revolved around her. Yakima Henry was just kind of along for the ride. That's ok, though, because she was a pretty cool character anyway. There was some good action here and a bit of sex. I wouldn't go so far to label it a "sextern" (like Longarm or Lone Star), but it is still there in case that would sway you from or to reading this. I also liked how Yakima Henry wasn't an invincibl 3 1/2 stars. This should have called Faith the Whore because her character had the most growth and the plot mainly revolved around her.

I also liked how Yakima Henry wasn't an invincible he-man like many other Western 'series protagonists. He is tough as nails, but he doesn't magically repel bullets like Frank Morgan from The Last Gunfighter series seems to do somehow. Overall, this was a lot of fun and I will definitely be continuing this series.

    Great story, great author, great read. What more could you ask for? I've had this on my Kindle for a while and never gotten around to reading it. Now that I have, the rest of the series beckons. Bad guys you love to hate and worse ones to hate more. Peter Brandvold weaves a great tale with fantastic characters. If you want to know more, then buy the book.

    I read another book in the Yakima Henry series, and wanted to read the first one, which this may or may not be. Are there bodice rippers for men? This story has so much sex in it with manly, long-haired men with narrow waists and muscles on muscles and beauteous whores it got a little silly. No, a lot silly.

    Peter Brandvold/Frank Leslie – Yakima Henry – The Lonely Breed – Reviewed 4/20/21 – Read 4/19/20 Yakima Henry is the loneliest breed of men in the Old West—he’s half-white, half-Cheyenne Indian. It’s not easy being a half-breed on the western frontier. Belonging to neither race, Yakima finds himself at odds with both. Often fleeing a hangman’s rope, the lonely half-breed roams the mountains and plains, looking for…what? Hell, not even Yakima knows. A home, maybe? The love of a good woman?

It’s not easy being a half-breed on the western frontier. Belonging to neither race, Yakima finds himself at odds with both. Often fleeing a hangman’s rope, the lonely half-breed roams the mountains and plains, looking for…what? Hell, not even Yakima knows. A home, maybe? The love of a good woman? He finds both for a time only after having hell to pay to get them…but for a man like Yakima, with a reputation as one of the most formidable gunfighters on the entire frontier and having left a trail of dead men behind him…as well as broken hearts…none of the usual comforts are his for long. What did I like? Being a member of this half-white/half red world, I could relate to the problems that faced Yakima and his search for belonging. Fortunately for me, I have the coloring for one of my bloodlines and did not have to go through all the problems that he did. Of course, I also was not born in the same time era either, there is a little more tolerance for the half breeds of my world. I enjoy reading and living in the west with Peter Brandvold's character of Yakima. Being strong, good-looking, lovable with a heart full of gold, reaching out to help others beyond their own needs. What will you like? A well-written and edited book with a strong storyline that just reaches out and takes hold of you from the first to the last page. Characters that are amazing and bold with the ability to have you either hate or love with strong emotions. The research again shows that Peter knows what he is writing about. The descriptions take you right into the story and make you comfortable. The action is incredible with many either making you cry or gasp but either way, you're on the edge of the seat while Yakima deals with the problems. Wonderful and highly recommended read. • ASIN: B091XW1GDW • Publisher: Wolfpack Publishing • Publication Date: 4/27/2021 • File Size: 1583 KB • Print Length: 281 pages • Genre: Western Fiction Classics, Westerns, Classic Literature & Fiction

    The Lonely Breed doesn't break any new ground. It doesn't look to push any boundaries. But it succeeds at being an entertaining romp of a western with unexpected twists as it continues. An interesting first book in a series, intriguing enough to be worth its follow-up. The Lonely Breed doesn't break any new ground. It doesn't look to push any boundaries.

    You don't mess with Yakima Henry the kung fu half breed of the old west. This is pure old fashioned action/adventure with the good guy loner overcoming the odds and getting the girl. It does what is sets out to do and is enjoyable for it. You don't mess with Yakima Henry the kung fu half breed of the old west.
