    One thought on “The Outlaw River Wilde”

    1. This is the first book in a science-fiction series. Instead of cowboys and Indians, we have aliens and Indians. And they're on the same team - at least we think. Not quite sure what's going on by the end of this book!

    2. Ancient Aliens!!! Wow, this book was fantastic. Great writing, a killer plot, and mysterious twists I loved! Wonderful!

    3. Outlaw River, a small town in the Pacific Northwest’s Outlaw River Valley. This community is no different from most small American towns that depend a fair amount of tourist trade. Outlaw River is a community of 1800, comprised of farmers, ranchers, loggers and hunters. Like most rural communities, everyone knows and looks out for their neighbors, attends annual events and go to bed at night without locking their doors.While biking the river trail, Mitch Wilde loses control and falls when some [...]

    4. 3.5/5. I received a free copy of this book from the giveaway."The Outlaw River Wilde" is the first book in the Outlaw River series. Set in the small town of Outlaw River, the story centres around Mitch Wilde, a middle aged freelance photographer. Happily married to his beautiful wife, Mabey, Mitch is hosting an annual barbecue when his best friend is mysteriously hit by what appears to be a disappearing arrow. Strange things continue happening, and Mitch works to decode these events with Jasper [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book by this new author and cannot wait to read more from him. For me, it’s simple: a good book makes you want to keep turning pages. Outlaw River Wilde easily falls into this category. The pace is just right and the characters are wonderful. It was a fun read and the start of a great sci-fi series. It reminded me of an M. Night Shyamalan movie (the better ones: Unbreakable, The Sixth Sense, Signs). As you progress through the story, little mysteries and suspenseful m [...]

    6. Very cool premise. American Indians around the area are disappearing. Strange, glowing arrows are flying. People are changing. And the government is trying to keep it quiet. Full review to come. The Outlaw River Wilde Book Review

    7. This book is an exciting page turner! I stayed up late several nights reading this book.wanting to read more. And I did not want the story to end. Looking forward to the next installment. Mike is a talented writer and he beautifully brings his various characters to life. I was absolutely entertained. I cared about the people. I cared about the story. All I can say is, "Wow!"I will recommend this book to all my friends who enjoy action and adventure. Great job, Mike.

    8. I love the sub title - SOMETIMES A MAN NEEDS TO JOURNAL- it really captures the style of writing here. I love SF and always on the look out for anything new, especially anything that feels grounded and The Outlaw River Wilde does. By this I mean that it feels like real people forced to face the extraordinary . The author takes this promise and makes it feel real and this makes for a really enjoyable read.

    9. A little different from the Science Fiction I usually read and I think this is what made it a good read. I particularly enjoyed the blend of mystery and suspense which kept the ending from being transparent and held my intrigue to very end. In terms of style I think the author has a refreshing and original style which is accessible and allows the reader to really visualize the characters and the setting in which they are placed. I hope there will be another book in this series!

    10. I like my Science Fiction a little off beat and I think this is an apt description for The Outlaw River Wilde. It has an original plot with the alien contact theme but remains grounded with excessive techno mumbo jumbo so that the characters carry the narrative. There is plenty of action from the start which garners the reader’s interest and the pace keeps up all the way through. Overall I thought it was a strong read and would definitely recommend it.

    11. The idea of not being alone in the universe immediately got my attention. Though I felt the read was a little slow, I kept waiting for something exciting to happen. When the story started to move I felt the characters reaction to the situations was out of context, then the story returned to an ordinary life in a small community. The story waited for the end of the book to excite the reader with hinted alien contact followed by to be continued. I wish Mike the best with his sequel.

    12. I recieved this book through GoodReads First Reads. Wow, Indians and Aliens! Nuff said, you HAVE to check this book outI could not put this down. What a let down to read the last page, I NEED to know how this story ends! I am familiar with the area, which made this even more interesting. I keep seeing a glimpse out of the corner of my eye, I have Mike Walters to thank for that! A great read.

    13. This was a little different from the more 'techy' SF I would usually read but the change was worth it. The plot was well developed with a depth to the authors writing that really captures the backdrops and characters really well. I could imagine it all very clearly. As far as the plot went it was both convincing and intriguing.

    14. The Outlaw River Wild tells the tale of a small town under attack by what can only be described as an alien invasion but a slow one and that has caught the attention of two men, one older who knows about and has evidence going back to the 1980's while the other is experiencing things that he would've never believed. This is a captivating book which I highly recommend to everyone!

    15. The Outlaw River Wilde doesn't suffer the tedium of weighty techno jargon or a highly confuted plot. The SF element is well integrated into the plot with a character driven narrative that lends itself well to the plot as it unfolds. I particularly like the style of writing and chapter construct which I think lends itself to the possibility of a TV series.

    16. I received this as a first read. This was an exciting read. A good science fiction read. Definitely a twist on the alien genre. Will read the second book.

    17. I received this book through a Giveaway. Overall, I liked the story and the characters. I didn't like the way it ended though with a to be continuedI like series books but I like when there is closure at the end of each book.

    18. The Outlaw River Wild by Mike Walters, is a fun and enjoyable book with a strange mixture of characters . The book leaves you wondering what will happen next,and looking foward to reading the continuing story in the next book.!I won this book through and a copy was sent to my the author. Thank you for the chance to read and review this book.

    19. A very enjoyable book, it has a little of the X Files vibe about it. It is very much character driven with the contact events gaining more momentum as the story progresses. I like this because I had to keep speculating as to what was really happening and the author isn't quick to give you the answers. Lots of suspense and good writing.

    20. I won this book for free on !An enjoyable read, however, I didn't enjoy the ending "to be continued"????!!!

    21. A really good book. It is well written and a real page-turner. I can hardly wait to read the next book in order to know how the story continues.I won this book through a Giveaway.
