Connor’s Saga is another great novel in the Rocky Mountain series. Kurt James is a master at drawing the reader into the story. His style of writing is like watching a 3D movie with the glasses on. It makes you feel like you are actually right there and part of the action. As with his other novels this one is full of the history of the Rocky Mountains. I highly recommend this and all the rest of Kurt James’s novels. you won’t be disappointed.
