Book Overview

Dark magic meets the Old West in this third installment of the Legends of the Lost Causes, as a group of vigilante orphans go head-to-head against an outlaw sorcerer in pursuit of an ancient and powerful magical artifact!

Keech Blackwood and his fellow Lost Causes have won their share of battles, but the war against the ruthless sorcerer Reverend Rose still rages on.

This time, the Lost Causes face their most perilous trial yet: stopping Rose and his henchmen from retrieving an ancient, powerful object that would help return him to his full, frightening strength. As the vigilante orphans race to the dangerous depths of Skeleton Peak, the sight of the magical object, they’ll have to outmaneuver Rose’s most faithful—and menacing—ally: an inhuman creature spawned by darkness and shadow. But ever in pursuit of justice and vengeance for their fallen families, the Lost Causes won’t give up without a fight.

Book Review

While we weren’t ecstatic to see the end to the series of Lost Causes, the final book in the trilogy does not disappoint! The fascinating merger of occult story and western tale is wonderfully done, and the characters were a joy to travel with throughout the trilogy.

Brad McLelland & Louis Sylvester have written poignant messages about love, friendship, and acceptance are messages that many children (and adults) can learn to adopt.

We can’t endorse this amazing series enough. You and your kiddos won’t be disappointed!
