'Black Moon's Revenge,' the hard-hitting sequel to author Kenneth L. Kieser's successful 1870s Deadwood-Dakota Territory Western novel 'Ride the Trail of Death,' is now available in bookstores, online and from the University of New Mexico Press.
Black Moon's Revenge (paperback ISBN 978-0-9785634-5-5) is published by La Frontera Publishing (http://www.lafronterapublishing.com) and distributed through the University of New Mexico Press (http://www.unmpress.com).
Set in 1883 Dakota Territory, 'Black Moon's Revenge' continues the story of the struggle between Lakota warrior Black Moon and Birch Rose, a former Deadwood deputy and one of the fastest gunmen in the West.
Secure in his belief that his enemy is long dead, Rose rides out one morning from his Black Hills ranch to chase cattle thieves. Suddenly coming upon the small group of rustlers, Rose is shocked to discover he's let his guard down and ridden right into a trap set by Black Moon, who is very much alive and pointing a rifle at him.
'Black Moon's Revenge' follows Black Moon and Birch Rose as they each struggle against their personal demons. Black Moon rages against the white invaders of his beloved Black Hills homeland, but it's a losing effort. Only one thing keeps him going - his need to kill Rose, the Lakota warrior's elusive enemy. Meanwhile, Rose battles against land grabbers, and he must rely on his friends, including Deadwood's legendary sheriff Seth Bullock, to help him defend his family and bring hired killers to justice. In the end, fate has one more test - a final showdown between Black Moon and Rose, a face-off only one man will win.
"Kenneth L. Kieser's novels are partially based on his family's exciting history of settling in Deadwood and other parts of the Dakota Territory during the Black Hills gold rush of the late 1870s and 1880s," said Mike Harris, publisher for La Frontera Publishing. "A successful outdoors writer whose bylines have appeared in many newspapers and outdoors magazines, Kieser's great talent of story telling will keep readers of Black Moon's Revenge turning pages."
