About the Book:  When Lucas McCade retired from the PRCA rodeo circuit, he was an internationally famous rodeo star. In a life of conquering hard bulls and harder men, he had rarely known defeat and never given into fear. Little could he have known that as he left the arena of wild-eyed bulls and slashing hooves, he was stepping into a life filled with real danger. Once he rode for gold-buckle dreams, now ride with Lucas McCade as he scouts the back trails over the rolling hills of Oklahoma and encounters the paths of the powers of darkness. In a culture where a man’s word is still his bond and a handshake seals a deal, McCade leads his family in a walk with Christ that causes outrage in the spiritual realm. Once again, ancient battle lines are drawn between the powers of the Prince of Darkness and the Heavenly forces of Jesus Christ. It promises to be the ride of a lifetime!
About the Author:  Kitty McGregor is a wife, mother and grandmother. She and her husband reside in Oklahoma where their lives are intertwined with faith, love and livestock, enjoying the ranch life and western heritage that inspired this story.
My Thoughts:   Kitty McGregor's writing feels real. It is obvious that she loves her subject and gives a lot of detail in her story without making it feel overwhelming.  She has a the ability to make the reader feel, taste, and experience everything  in her story.  It is a Christian book, yet, it is a modern western about the occult.  I do believe that the book does jump from one setting to another and it makes it a little difficult to keep up with the shifts.  However, the reader should have no problem keeping things straight. This story is an engaging one .  The tale that McGregar weaves reminds me of early Frank Peretti with a western kick.
