Reviewers claim The Son, a new book by Philipp Meyer is a saga as harrowing and exciting as his first book. A blog reader commented "It's a real sink your teeth into novel."
Here's a Kirkus Review quote:
"The acclaimed author of "American Rust," returns with an epic, multigenerational saga of power, blood, and land that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1800s, to the border raids of the early 1900s. to the oil booms of the 20th century.
Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim."
