I’m a fan of Jack Hazen's books, and like his others, “Bone Star” is amusing and highly entertaining. If you’re a fan, you’ll recognize some of the characters in these Vella episodes (chapters). This is a book written for adults and older teens – so be aware there are graphic descriptions, some rough language, and sexual and violent content. Not for the faint of heart or easily offended! These issues only enhance the story and were not added just for shock value. There was a point to the grittiness and rough points. Sprinkled throughout are references to other books, and it combined a present-day storyline with the past. The first chapter introduces Hawk, who just wants a cold drink at Starbucks. Unfortunately, he isn’t dressed to enter the establishment, so Bone Star offers to get his drink. Bone Star is a beautiful Apache princess who is intelligent, likable, strong, and tough as nails. She has a great sense of humor and doesn’t put up with anyone’s nonsense! She has no problem using her weapons when the situation calls for it. Right off the bat there is conflict, at the end of each chapter the reader is compelled to begin the next for more! Hazen writes snappy dialogue, excellent scene descriptions, and believable character development. Many action-adventure novels are serious and intense, but this book mixes sarcasm, humor, and adventure for one wild read! This is a realistic and fast-paced story with surprising plot twists, and the well-developed story held me captive. I enjoyed the historical references, and the Native American backdrop just made the story even better. There were times in this story where I thought the main characters were doomed! But somehow, they managed to deal with the obstacles in their way. I loved that the chapters were brief, and I felt like I could return to the story when I had a few minutes to escape. If you enjoy westerns, Native American history, plenty of action, thrilling adventure, and a well-conceived and at times hilarious plot, read this book! You will not be disappointed. I couldn’t stop thinking about the story until I completed the very last chapter.
