Lyria Grant moves with her father from Philadelphia to Two Moon, Texas. She quickly realizes that although Two Moon is progressive for an Old West town in the 1800's, it still has problems that she believes she can solve. Under the guise of The Western Star, she dispenses vigilante justice against those that the law can't or won't fight.
Explosions are common among the caves and mountains near Two Moon, but when a particularly large series of explosions occurs it makes the inhabitants wonder if their explorations have gone too far too soon. However, the unusual ores unearthed from the explosions soon pique the interest of more than one resident. Is the rumor of a mountain monster enough to keep them away? A gang of moonshiners trying to keep their less than legal activities secret hopes so.
Dirigible fever has taken over Two Moon, Texas & even a Texas-sized tornado isn't enough to cool the residents' excitement. However, these amazing flying machines have now given outlaws another way to evade the law, & another reason for Lyria to continue her activities as The Western Star. Her alter ego is so popular, in fact, that it is the most popular costume for attendees of the town masquerade ball to wear! Will so many Western Stars in one place help or hurt the investigation of a mysterious new visitor?
Our latest Western Star novel is the biggest and most action-packed yet! Dragons, battle-ready robotic animals, and secret spy devices are all included in this no-holds barred battle against those who want to protect Two Moon & those who want it destroyed. Not to mention a passenger fresh from the train station who may be able to answer once and for all if the Western Star actually exists.
