These three westerns give the reader plenty of action and adventure. You get gunslingers, heroes, romance, outlaws, cowboys and ever so much more. If you're a lover of the ole' west than here are three stories that take you back to the time.
The author gives the reader good old Texas Rangers, outlaws, cattle ranchers, a little love, the good and the bad. At times the stories were a little slow but I found that the writing and descriptions were so vivid that I didn't care that sometimes the pace was slow. There is plenty of action and plenty of bad and good characters. Your mindset gets right in there with each story. You want the good guy to win and you want those outlaws to pay the price. You get a good picture of how tough times were in the ole' west and what it took to survive. Sometimes they had to do what they didn't really want to but it was survival of the fittest. Sometimes evil wins for a while but in the end will justice and the good guys prevail? Grab a copy of this Omnibus and find out. If you're a western lover you'll want to add this book to your collection.

Coyote Breed brings us Chet Boardman, a Texas Ranger. He has been tracking down a Coyote gang but he meets up with them sooner than he ever expected. He's left in the desert to die. That isn't going to stop Chet. Chet is now out for revenge since he was almost the sixth Texas ranger to have died at the hand of The Coyotes. He's trying to lay low and not let anyone know who he really is but that didn't last long. Several people of the town recognize him and soon the whole town knew. Chet's life goes from bad to worse when the Coyotes kill Jed Marsden's wife and son. Jed thinks Chet is one of the gang. Will Chet bring these outlaws to justice? Or will he be number six of the dead Texas rangers?
I would give this book 4 STARS because of the slow pace at times.
