This is the story of famous Australian bushranger, Captain Thunderbolt/Frederick Ward. The author combines history and real life characters and turns it into the diary of her character, Ben Cross. It is about Ben’s journey with the bushranging gang including Fred and his wife Mary Anne and her kids.
WHAT I DISLIKED:
If you are into historical fiction then you will probably enjoy this story. Me, I’m into fantasy and give this story 4 stars. I think the author could improve on explaining a few things and using a better hook.
WHAT I LIKED:
I think the most interesting part in the story was the shootout where Thommo died. It put some emotion into the story and made it a little bit more interesting. I like how the author ended the story with “That’s it”.
MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
