Former action star Chuck Norris and his team of writers have come up with an entertaining adventure novel with a simple message of faith mixed in. Fans of Walker, Texas Ranger (or of Norris's earlier films) will not be disappointed with The Justice Riders. It's nothing more than a Norris movie put to paper and, on that level, it's every bit as fun. Recommended.
Even after the war is over, their job isn't done. There are pockets of resistance left that refuse to surrender. One of these is led by Mordecai Slate. His path seems to cross Ezra's on multiple occasions.
Ezra's current mission, however, is to help with the transportation of prisoner of war. Most of them are weak or sick from their times in the Confederate's prison camps. They are so close to returning home. Yet major danger lurks in their way.
I am not a huge Chuck Norris fan, but have caught a few episodes of his TV show. This book reads like what I know of the show. The emphasis is on the action, and there are several great action scenes. The characters are a little short, but they are still interesting. The line between good and evil is clearly drawn. The story, while interesting, could have used some better focus. The time in history came to life, and I enjoyed the focus on a little known historic event. This is obviously a first novel, however, as the writing is weak.
Some more polish would have made this book much better. Hopefully, as the series progresses, the flaws of this debut will vanish.
Justice has just the men in mind to recruit for this secret project. They include an African-American, Nathaniel York, a British sharpshooter, Reginald Bonesteel, Harry Whitecloud, an Indian warrior, a fighting Irishman, Shaun O’Banyon, the two Gypsy brothers, the Hawkins twins.
This 293 page novel has a little bit of everything you might want in a western action novel. This book flows smoothly beginning when Captain Justice seeks out his team to join him in the secret mission. There are fights, shoot-outs, and dramatic incidents in this book that keep you turning the pages. I especially enjoyed the character development in this novel. The one thing I did not like about this book which was the constant references to Jesus Christ and God. I thought there was way too much religious commentary in this book.
I never give away too much when I write a review of a novel because it spoils it for the reader. If you enjoy a solid western tale which takes place at the end of the civil war you might want to check out this book.
