A Town Called Vengeance (Brokeheart Series Book 2) by Kevin Wolf is the second book in this series that takes place in the time of the old west. What makes this series different from your typical western tale is the addition of the supernatural. In this case, the introduction of lycanthropy, more popularly known as werewolves. The main character is a journalist by the name of Kepler. With a clouded past, he travels through the Arizona desert, headed for a town called Vengeance with his female companion, June. Rumors abound that an Apache war party led by a she-wolf is headed for the same town. The reason? It is hinted at by the name of the town.

Before Kepler and June even get to town, the stagecoach they ride in is under attack. The driver abruptly stops the stagecoach, convinced that a pack of wolves led by a she-wolf is following them. From there, A Town Called Vengeance draws the reader in with the attack itself, aided by convincing dialogue, colorful descriptions of the townsfolk, the desert environment, and life choices. There are brutal villains, a love interest in June, Buffalo Soldiers, and an engaging but dark storyline that grabs your attention. Kevin Wolf has a good grasp of old west lingo that adds to the authenticity of the world he describes. Kepler is an engaging character who also happens to be the narrator. Even without having read the first book in the series, any fan of the genre can thoroughly enjoy this second book. A new book, hopefully, is in the works.
