The Willow Rise Six review
I can say that reading this novel I realised that I really missed western novels. A big fan of Winnetou’s adventures, I filled my adolescence with Karl May’s books. The Willow Rise Six is a delightful surprise with a caching first chapter.

The story is straightforward, flawless, and the characters are very real, complex; in a word well-crafted. Their arc is clear and well built. I like Sam and his perception of the world. The author extraordinarily described Alice as a woman with a lot of interests and also revengeful. I like the way Bill came out - very complex character.
I love the writer’s style - relaxed and precise. Also, the plot keeps you reading, and the story has a nice pace (a bit slow sometimes) and good transitions. There are excellent descriptions helping in creating an extraordinary world. We have action, suspense and consistency, which is enough to keep you reading until the end. I would have liked more dialogue. Besides physical appearance and actions, the dialogue can help build a veridical character.
Another plus point goes for the cover. I love it!
