SUMMARY:

The United States of America, 1902. With the old west fading from memory and the tales of outlaws being passed down to a new generation, there has always been one tale that has stuck out from the rest. The story of Ray McCarthy, a man on the run since the end of the Civil War. Why are regular folk hesitant to bring it up? He’s still alive and wanted.

The BookViral Review:

Sure to be enjoyed by readers of all ages with a craving for fast-paced, page-turning westerns and fantasy novels Nation proves to be a strong debut for Thorn.

A novel driven by a strong narrative, muscular and sometimes didactic prose and a series of violent encounters resolved by physical action Thorn clearly understands the genre’s needs and the expectations of its readers. And in doing so delivers a genuine page-turner!

About 70 percent Western paired with 30 percent fantasy. Which is pretty clever given the enduring popularity of fantasy. Thorn gives us characters who are not only realistic but deserving of empathy. And whilst there is little new in terms of genre tropes, his storytelling ability is superb with the tension vice-like in places.

With the charismatic Ray McCarthy in the midst of a supernatural mission that finds him crossing paths with shamans, demons and polymorphing witches Thorn’s narrative exchange between McCarthy and President Roosevelt is so well done that it brings a feeling of desolation and lost hope to the reader. We mourn the loss of Millie. We want McCarthy to have the chance to extradite himself from the misconceptions that have branded him a wanted man and when that chance comes we’re left in no doubt that McCarthy’s quest to defeat Baska has only just begun!

A powerful and engaging start to what promises to be an epic fantasy series Nation is a BookViral five star read and unreservedly recommended!
