    See my FULL review of this book on my blog along with others at shesgoingbookcrazycom All included uotes have been taken from an ARC and may not match the finished publication DNFing at 30 %Content Warning Cannibalism Death Murder Forced services ie young teens forced into working for a gang“In the Wild you don’t start a fire unless you want to risk someone finding you or you’re stupid”or you are coldor trying to fend away the critters When I first came across Ride On I was pretty excited about it To be honest anything horse related captures my attention easily I should have been a bit warier seeing how this is set in a post apocalyptic era This book very much mimics the world depicted in the movie The Book of Eli If you haven't seen it then picture a vast wasteland with Mad Max type folks terrorizing all the good folks Oh and there are cannibalsIf you have seen The Book of Eli take out the Mad Max influence and the Biblical references and replace it with a Western feel and you will have Ride On The reason why I called it uits with this book was because of the cannibalism Its nothing that I want to read about plain and simpleVulgarity 8 words counted until stopping at 30%Sexual content NoneViolence Some including discussion of cannibalismSince this is a DNF read I will not be assigning a star reviewMy Blog ¦ Bookstagram ¦ Twitter ¦ Pinterest ¦ Facebook

    I don’t normally do westerns but I loved Gwen’s other book so I knew I was going to read this one I loved Seph and Avery They’re both fantastic characters who are fierce and stand up for themselves They’re both level headed and loyal and the dual POV made it easy to root for them Plot wise it did feel a bit repetitive even though I was fully invested in what was happening There is a lot of riding and running and fighting and guns There were a couple of times that I was surprised at what was taking place when I turned the page Overall it was the characters that sucked me in and the writing kept me there I can’t wait to see what Gwen comes up with next Huge thanks to Sky Pony press for providing the arc free of charge

    I received this eARC from Skyhorse Publishing on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of this book in any wayDNF'd at 30%Honestly I was getting really tired of this book I'm not a huge fan of westerns but I am of post apocalypses Unfortunately this was a western with brief mentions of it being post apocalyptic Laura Ingalls Wilder could have shown up at any moment and it wouldn't have been much out of place tbhThe actual cause of this apocalypse is extremely unclear and the dissolution of society even less so The insta love was weird lots of lines about eyes and cliche and dragged down the story's potential from a 4 to a 2 on a 10 scaleI really enjoyed Seph's perspectives because though I haven't read this book yet it gave me some strong The Road vibes what with his father and their travels through dangerous terrain But Avery was really annoying First of all it took me a few pages to even realize her brother wasn't like 10 but was in fact her twin because of how they interacted at first Then she just kind of stumbles on bad weird situations one after the other before coming upon Seph The action felt really rushed the chase scenes lacked tension the villains were repeated and copied like three times and I kept getting confused with the horses names thinking I'd missed a character introduction I kept expecting Cade to start talking or something the way these horses were written Seph's narration even just read better than Avery's as if he both had to say and knew how to say it betterOverall it isn't the worst book I've DNF'd but I'm really not feeling it and that insta love was really the last straw I'd really rather not waste my time on a crappy book ARC or not

    I received this novel from NetGalley in exchange for a fair reviewThis novel blew me away it started off a little slow but uickly picked up the pace It is a wonderful original tale of two worlds colliding inside one very messed up universe I love the originality of blending a Western with this Dystopian world it works so incredibly well and really gives the book a great feelI love the characters not only for who they are and what they stand for but their realness Seph' is constantly second guessing and uestioning himself something that we can all relate to Just as we can relate to Avery in than one way She is honest gutsy and wholesome ualities that are becoming rare in our female protagonistsI really enjoyed this novel much than I expected to and I think that is solely down to the writing style just when something is feeling ‘dull’ Cole throws in a tiny lyrical moment showing you the ways the trees are moving in the breeze the way a horse’s flank shivers at a fly something that draws you back into the momentThis book is a great read and will surprise you

    I’ve been on a bit of a post apocalypticdystopian ride for the past few months When I originally saw Ride On a post apocalyptic western I thought giddy upCole doesn’t really touch on the how or the why of what happened to create this post apocalyptic world all we know for certain is that the sun is forever hidden behind a gray sky It could be one thing or another that caused it to me it really doesn’t matter what really matters is what the author and characters are going to do with it Ride On bounces back and forth between Avery and Seph’s perspectives Both of these kids have had to grow up fast They’ve both suffered loss and adversities their world has made them old beyond their years While the story is definitely YA this thick skin and maturity made them a bit relatable to an old pod like myself Ride On was a fun read I got to meet a couple of new friends in Avery and Seph but I felt like I could have gone with an adult version of the story This is my own fault When I pick up a story about youngins written for youngins I should expect certain things The author has to give that audience what they want and expectI enjoyed Ride On I can see that it should connect with a particular audience I just didn’t find what I was looking for Cole is a talented storyteller who should definitely stick aroundI received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley

    review also posted on my blog be honest I was a bit anxious to begin this book This is my second ARC that I received on NetGalley and the first one wasn't a really pleasurable experience for me However I'm glad that I can say that I really enjoyed this bookTo begin the story structure was very interesting and uite uniue compared to other Young Adult books The chapters flipped point of views between the two main characters Seph and Avery I personally loved this method that the author used and it kept me entertained throughout almost the whole book Sometimes I would see how Avery felt about a specific event and then I would see it from Seph's perspectiveThe characters I feel like I connected a lot with Seph than I did with Avery I feel that it should be the opposite because I'm a girl and have similar characteristics to Avery than Seph However I just felt that when the author was writing in Seph's perspective it was a lot entertaining to read and easy to connect with I feel like Avery was kind of just there It was all tell no show Like wow I see a beautiful sky versus Seph being like It resonated with the deepest part of my soul the waves were me I AM the waves They represent me BeautifulI can watch them forever If I die here I will be content Btw this didn't actually happen in the book I'm just giving an example Although Seph was a loner I felt of a connection between Seph and his horse Cade  than between Avery and her brother Finn Don't get me wrong they have a nice sibling relationship but I feel like the author could have stressed their love for each other view spoilerFor example Even though Avery went to huge lengths to get Finn back after he was captured I kind of felt like she was just chasing him She really didn't mention how she felt throughout the whole ordeal and she didn't mention being worried about him or anything hide spoiler

    Gwen Cole you have made me a fan for lifeI mean I kind of basically was after Cold Summer but Ride On just proves that I’m all inSeph and Avery are two characters who couldn’t be different An orphan versus someone who is family minded An outlaw versus a law abiding citizen But not all is as it seems as we start to peel back the layers on these charactersSee desperate times can change a person When you’re living in a post apocalyptic world that looks a lot like where we are headed on that in a minute anything goes to stay alive Seph and Avery are playing a high stakes game to stay alive day to day and I was on the edge of my seat while their POVs switched off I happened to be on a plane during a particularly nerve wrecking scene and I wondered if the baby in the seat next to me was up to a chat about how Gwen Cole is basically a monster she’s lovely but omg I loved the setting in the story We know our world is headed toward a world without sun if we don’t get it together Imagine the wreckage in this world This isn’t an unfamiliar place Creating a western like world felt right for the damage we do to our planet Desperate measures and all that If you love SFF with a great set of relationshipromance plots read all things Gwen Cole

    Disclaimer I received this free book from the publisher This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honestRide On is entirely entertaining Both Seph and Avery have pretty compelling backstories which are established early on This makes it easily readable because you naturally want to find out about them Why is Avery in the Wild? What secrets is Seph hiding? While this is certainly a post apocalyptic story the premise being the sky is permanently occluded by clouds it reads like a Western to me The setting is in this far future but there isn't a whole ton of world building to than that Characters4 World 3 Plot 4 Writing 4full review

The tables have turned and they are now the ones being hunted With rumors of mysterious dangers to the south and a safe sanctuary to the west they’ve only got one option but getting there won’t be easy with the Lawmen on their trail The only thing that matters in the Wild is how fast your trigger hand is but Seph doesn’t know if his will be fast enough to save them all. Gwen Cole you h
