was able to figure most everything out and jump right into the story for what there was.Rose is guarding a chest on a train with a bunch of other mercenaries This being a novel, everything goes wrong, there s an explosion, a bunch of people die, and the chest disappears Whoops.While tracking the chest down, Rose encounters a Russian wizard prince with whom she s had a fling named Eli Their search takes them to a fun not racist town where it starts to seem like the disappearance of the chest was part of a bigger conspiracy.So here s the thing The beginning of this book was great but the middle is slow as syrup It s literally just Rose and Eli wandering around and talking to people and eating at all the diners I lost count of how many times they stop to EAT It s a lot.I really like the Sookie Stackhouse series and even though I can admit it s not the best written story out there, part of its charm was the action packed storyline laced with tons of romance and erotica This appears to be Harris s attempt to branch out and tell aserious story and while I respect that, it s so dull and boring that I kind of wish she d opted for trashy and fun instead Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 2 stars NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR CHARLAINE HARRIS RETURNS WITH THE SECOND OF THE GUNNIE ROSE SERIES, IN WHICH LIZBETH IS HIRED ONTO A NEW CREW, TRANSPORTING A CRATE INTO DIXIE, THE SELF EXILED SOUTHEAST TERRITORY OF THE FORMER UNITED STATES WHAT THE CRATE CONTAINS IS SOMETHING SO POWERFUL, THAT FORCES FROM ACROSS THE THREE TERRITORIES WANT TO POSSESS IT In this second thrilling installment of the Gunnie Rose series, Lizbeth Rose is hired onto a new crew for a seemingly easy protection job, transporting a crate into Dixie, just about the last part of the former United States of America she wants to visit But what seemed like a straight forward job turns into a massacre as the crate is stolen Up against a wall in Dixie, where social norms have stepped back into the last century, Lizbeth has to go undercover with an old friend to retrieve the crate as what s inside can spark a rebellion, if she can get it back in timeNumber one New York Times best selling author Charlaine Harries Sookie Stackhouse mysteries and Midnight Texas Trilogy is at her best here, building the world of this alternate history of the United States, where magic is an acknowledged but despised powerCharlaine Harris Schulz PRecorded Books A LONGER FALL by Charlaine Harris is the second book in the new Gunnie Rose series This series

A LONGER FALL by Charlaine Harris is the second book in the new Gunnie Rose series This series spans several genres including urban fantasy, western, alternate history, and thriller with magic adding another level.The story begins with our protagonist Lizbeth Rose Gunnie Rose on a train heading from Texoma to the country of Dixie with a new gunnie crew guarding a crate they need to deliver in Sally, a town in Dixie By the end of the first chapter there has been an explosion and the train has been derailed near their destination What started as an easy protection job has now evolved into something else Lizbeth s friend from book one, Eli Savarov shows up shown after the train derailment and they join forces to continue the mission Both Lizbeth s weapons expertise and Eli s magic are needed to help them succeed Who are their friends and who are enemies Dixie has some very old fashioned beliefs that women should be wearing dresses, not pants Additionally, this book takes on the underlying themes of racism and social stratification There is not quite as much action in this book as in book one in the series, but there is still plenty of it as well as a couple of slightly steamy, but not graphic scenes.Charlaine Harris is one of my favorite authors and she did not let me down with this unique addition to the new series The worldbuilding is fantastic and the characters are compelling Lizbeth s motivations are believable and well drawn and the secondary characters were well rounded and enhanced the story Lizbeth is a strong, and capable female protagonist The plot twists were believable but several were unexpected The story moved at an appropriate pace The scenes were well described and gave me a clear sense of place.I recommend that those that are interested in this series read the books in order The first book in the series explains the alternative history aspect that is not fully explained in book two I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series If you like blended genre books, then this may be a book that you would enjoy.Many thanks to Saga Press Gallery and Charlaine Harris for a digital ARC of this novel via NetGalley and the opportunity to provide an honest review Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way A Longer Fall by Charlaine Harris is the second book in the historical western fantasy Gunnie Rose series Yes, this series is a rather weird mix of genres with a western setting in an alternate version of the United States that not only houses gunslingers but also those that can wield magic.As with most

of the United States that not only houses gunslingers but also those that can wield magic.As with most fantasy series this second book has picked up after where the first had left off so it s best to read the series from the beginning for the most enjoyment In the first book of the series readers were introduced to Lizbeth Rose who is a gunslinger in an obvious man s world making her work that much harder to succeed at her chosen job.This time around Lizbeth Rose has joined an all new crew in what should be an easy job but of course things are never easy in Lizbeth s world All the crew was supposed to do was transport a crate but soon Lizbeth finds herself in the middle of a massacre as the crate is stolen away from the crew.Ok, I will first admit that I picked up this series in the beginning strictly based on author only since I ve never been a huge western fan but having read a few different series from Charlaine Harris and enjoying them curiosity killed the cat so to speak When finished with the first book I was impressed at the originality of mixing all sorts of genres into this series so I just had to come back for book two and this one was just as action packed and entertaining as the first this again coming from someone not a huge fan of a western but Ms Harris has made it fun.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.Forreviews please visit

looking worse than the last time she saw him in Mexico There are questions, but they ll have to wait because somebody just got murdered and Liz wants to stay alive This town they are stuck in is not welcoming Together again, the pieces slowly come together in many ways.I like Liz and Eli I like them working together, each of them is different enough to make the usual unusual The sex scenes are not up to Ms Harris s ability, she choose to make them there but not interesting I would have liked to see a little R rated sex, it was so PG I will read the next book because of them.It s hard to place this in a time My brain needs to nail it down, old west modern future the mix of old West and modern throws me off sometimes It felt forced in bits, trying too hard to be a Western and yet not I m not loving the world, but I love the characters I really enjoyed the first book in this series It wasn t something different and slightly strange and a whole lot entertaining, which is why, when I saw A Longer Fall, I didn t hesitate to pick it up This had everything I loved in book one and just expanded on it More magic,danger,adventure andromance I truly am in love with the world that Harris has created and so very glad that I decided to take a chance on this author again because this series really is one that all her I really enjoyed the first book in this series It wasn t something

that all her fans, old and new is going to love.I love the old timey western feel to it The almost apocalyptic eeriness to the world she has created while still making it seem familiar and believable The characters are rough and tough but still soft enough to be endearing and make you want to root for them to make it through one horrific fight scene and adventure after another Truly a stand out series that I am so glad I get to read and so glad I took a chance on ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review This is second in the kind of series that builds over time So you definitely want to read in order.Being a series makes this easier to review because if you liked the first, you ll probably enjoy this one as well I really like Lizbeth and I was thrilled when Eli showed up and they teamed up again The Dixie setting in an alternate universe that is post US Civil War but with Dixie being its own country with its own political and cultural system means that we re

but with Dixie being its own country with its own political and cultural system means that we re deep in the era that produced Jim Crow and the story revolves around that deep seated racial segregation and the struggle for equality.While Harris does a decent job keeping that plot flowing and avoiding easy answers or trite characterization, the translation into alt history made it still feel a bit removed or remote At least for me Maybe that s because Lizbeth and Eli are ultimately outsiders so Harris couldn t really go into the political and structural issues you d need to know to feel like their actions had any lasting effect at all.And it doesn t help me, personally, that the ending remained ambiguous on the one continuity thing that really matters to me view spoiler Lizbeth s relationship with Eli hide spoiler.So this ends up a wobbly four stars because for all my qualms, it s still a great action adventure story in a fascinating setting and characters that I love Also, I had such a difficult time putting it down I can t really justify a tepid I liked it.A note about Steamy and Chaste Eli and Lizbeth do it Like a lot But there s zero explicit sex on page There s some mild body care when they re injured and that includes intimate body parts coming into it, but nothing that really fits steamy , there, either So there s enough that even I can t call it chaste but not so much that I can call it steamy So neither label applies This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in Books.I had a great time with this book After enjoying the first book in the Gunnie

to hold things together when a familiar face shows up to help She must work to find the crate and complete the crew s mission.I liked this book just as much as the first one Gunnie Rose doesn t give up on any mission and she seems to be able to instinctively know who should be trusted The town she finds herself in has a lot of problems and tensions are high She must work with her ally to find the crate and deliver it appropriately but she seems to find difficulties at every turn There were a few surprises in this book The book takes place almost entirely in Dixie which is a different environment than what we saw in the first book I had a great time trying to figure out exactly what was going on and how Lizbeth would complete her mission I love the growth that we have seen in her character throughout the series.I would highly recommend this book to others This is an original and exciting story with wonderful characters and a bit of magic I cannot wait to readof Gunnie Rose s adventures in the future.I received a digital review copy of this book from Gallery Saga Press via NetGalley.Initial ThoughtsI had a great time with this book I love this alternate universe that Ms Harris has created and Lizbeth is a wonderful character The book opened with a bang and the momentum never stopped There were some pretty awesome moments and a few surprises I can t wait to see what

and the West Coast becoming the new Holy Russian Empire loyal to the Tsar and filled with orders of Grogori magicians Lizbeth Rose or Gunnie Rose as she is known hails from Texoma, a new nation created out of Texas and Oklahoma and is a fierce gunwoman despite her small stature Here, Rose sets out on a railroad with a new posse she just joined up with to protect a crate on its way to Dixie, the new country made up of the former Southern states The beginning of the book is a major blast and yes literally a blast The action of the posse and in carrying out its task and recovering from what happens is great action packed writing After that, the plot line sort of peters out, losing its purpose This series has great promise from its alternate universe, which really isn t taken advantage of so much in this novel, to the great characterization and narrative voice of the one and only Lizbeth Rose A Longer Fall takes place in an alternate history world of Charlaine Harris making With all of

facing the Russians.Eli and Rose pretend to be married as they sift through the players of Sally and who might be behind the murder and theft of the protected item With magic there is mayhem and with mayhem there is danger all around.I enjoyed A Longer Fall Harris provides a twisted tale of deception, sexual chemistry and lots of dining Guess they needed a lot of fuel to help with their sexual interactions I did think the ending was abrupt but left me wonder what will happen with Rose next.I received this ARC copy of The Long Fall from Gallery Saga Press Simon Schuster This is my honest and
