Tombstone, 1881: site of one of the richest strikes in American history, where veins of silver run like lay lines under the earth, a network of power that belongs to anyone who knows how to claim it and defend it.

Above the ground, power is also about allegiances. A magician can drain his friends' strength to strengthen him, and place them between him and danger. The one with the most friends stands to win the territory.

Jesse Fox left his Eastern college education behind to wander west, after his sister suffered a mental breakdown - an event she insisted was a supernatural assault. Now Jesse's been summoned to Tombstone by his friend the physician (and magician) Chow Lung. Lung insists that Jesse has magical talent, but if Jesse believed that he'd have to accept that the thing that destroyed his sister's mind lives in his own as well.

Jesse meets the tubercular Doc Holliday, whose inner magic is as suppressed as his own, but whose power is enough to attract the sinister attention of Wyatt Earp, who means to use Holliday to put himself and his family in positions of power in Arizona. And Jesse also meets Mildred Benjamin, a young Jewish widow who makes her living first as a newspaper typesetter, then as a reporter, as she discovers her true nature - personal and supernatural - in the scrambling boomtown environment of Tombstone.

Then, when a failed stage holdup results in two dead, Tombstone explodes with speculation about who attempted it. The truth could destroy Wyatt Earp's plans for wealth and glory, and he'll do anything to bury it. Meanwhile, outlaw leader John Ringo wants the same turf as Earp.

Events (including fire, floods, Apaches, and rustlers, and a surprising Fourth of July) are building toward the shootout of which you may have heard. But you haven't heard the whole, secret story until you've read Emma Bull's unique take on an American legend, in which absolutely nothing is as it seems Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen | 2/13/2014

    " A fun take on Tombstone. You will probably like it if you're familiar with the characters involved and enjoy the Western milieu. What if Wyatt Earp was a wizard? Not a Harry Potter style wizard, exactly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen Johnson | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. It was well written and engaging. However it left a lot of threads hanging at the end. It seems to call for a sequel, but I'm not sure that was the author's intent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dida | 2/2/2014

    " One of perhaps the best books I'd read in a long time, when this one came along for me to check out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 kat | 1/3/2014

    " Took me a few chapters to get into this because the Western setting is not the sort of thing I would usually read. I liked it a lot by the end, though I felt it ended rather abruptly. Didn't like this one as much as Freedom and Necessity, but it was pleasant enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 12/29/2013

    " It was okay. I've definitely read better books by Emma Bull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 12/25/2013

    " One of the best books I've read all year. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 farmwifetwo | 10/29/2013

    " I think it was the Wild West plot that simply didn't interest me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 5/23/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book, the first I've read by Emma Bull. I'd like to read others. Her characters are engaging and she's a good writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Schaff-Stump | 2/13/2013

    " Bull recreates the feel of the West very well in this strong book. It's an interesting reinterpretation of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. I wanted more closure, but on the whole, I was satisfied. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mizgrimalkin | 1/11/2013

    " I didn't like it. It is the first Emma Bull story that I haven't enjoyed. The subject matter was interesting enough, but never as indepth as it could have. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 11/15/2012

    " Slow beginning, the middle was good, and the end just felt like the author was just trying to get the book finished as fast as possible. Very anticlimactic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 11/3/2012

    " Interesting tale. Ready for the next installment. We've waited a long time for a new novel from Emma. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 8/23/2012

    " Odd, and it did not have a satisfying ending. I will forgive a lot in a book if the conclusion is good- but to drag on a long book with a non-ending...not even a cliffhanger just a .... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly McBisterson | 8/5/2012

    " Emma Bull is a fine, fine writer. I'm not sure if anyone else could have sold me on a Western frontier fantasy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 8/2/2011

    " Fantastic writer-recommended by Kelly "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 4/28/2011

    " I wanted to wrap myself in this book. Unusual, intricate, terrifying and inspiring. Utterly original. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sc | 4/26/2011

    " Completely dull and uninteresting - flat characters, no discernable storyline. Gave up half way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/29/2011

    " A wicked twist of the tale of "Tombstone,AZ" Loved it, read it a year ago and it comes into my thoughts quite often! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 2/13/2011

    " Magic set in the wild west : Wuatt Earp as a magic user and magic stealer (from other people) using his powers to kill at a distance and the unwilling magic user who ends up locking Earp's power. Really good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Choco-cat | 12/30/2010

    " I found this book a bit slow and didn't really capture my attention...although not quite slow enough for me to totally give up on it. In all fairness, it was set in the "wild west" which is not really my cup of tea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 12/20/2010

    " Kept waiting for this to get good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 11/4/2010

    " Interesting read -- very different take on the 'wild west'
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 11/1/2010

    " Very interesting - science fiction meets the Old West. Held my interest but not sure if I would read more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 10/25/2010

    " My first kindle book. This was such a good story that I forgot I was reading an e-book. A real vacation-change-of-pace. I hope the author writes a sequel because she stopped just short of a famous Wyatt Earp event. "
