Title: Space Cowboy
Author: Justin Stanchfield
Publisher: Usbourne Books
Description from goodreads: Teenage cowboy, Travis McClure, is desperate for adventure. He’s bored with life on the remote planet of Aletha Three, herding cattle all day. But everything changes when he comes face-to-face with a creature that should only exist in nightmares.
Then it’s kill or be killed and Travis is forced to defend himself and the other terraformers. Armed only with his dad’s rifle he heads into the wilderness to track down the mystery predator before it destroys everything
I actually had to read this for work and I just want to say. I really don’t like the whole cowboy thing, I don’t. I’m not a fan of westerns at all and even though it’s not my favorite genre I really liked this book! It had a good balance of mystery, romance, comedy and thriller. I wasn’t expecting to remotely liking this story about a hum drum kid stuck on a desert planet but I did. I liked him I liked his family, it was so refreshing and I think anyone could really enjoy this book. Unfortunately it’s been a couple of weeks since I read it and I’m being slow on my reading this week so I thought I should at least review a book and since this one has to little press I encourage you to give it a try because it will surprise you.
