A last detail I would have liked to have seen included is the meaning of the title – “Hoyle’s Games” was the definitive book of the time for the rules on card and board games, so “according to Hoyle” was a popular term for playing exactly by the rules.

Tastes change Probably more like 2. A great romp through the west is what I found.

According to Hoyle

Probably more like 2. Your balance of storyline, emotions, descriptions and mystery is perfect. Or, get it for Kobo Super Points! But I …more I sure hope so but dunno. The majority of the dialogue is characterized with these sorts of tags, and often with some sort of addition to it, either an adverb, a prepositional phrase, or a dependent clause.

According To Hoyle by Abigail Roux

The narrator has a great voice and did okay with distinguishing different characters. Rose is a little something of everything and he couldn’t be nailed down which was quite fun.

As for the main characters, the few things revealed abigaill them were continually repeated, leaving their storylines and supposedly changing relationships to remain rather flat. Not far along the trail, Rose and Cage grow friendly especially since Rose is kind to the man who cannot speak and seems to understand him without the words. Stringer takes the job.


Before they can make up their mind, the issue blows up in their face hoy,e they are all left scrambling for their lives. Just when it seems Cage and Gabriel will be separated, losing the one true connection either of them had mustered in some time, there’s a switch, and the foursome of Flynn, Wash, Gabriel and Cage end up going downriver on a paddle boat bent for trouble.

Wash is all heart and strength but never really given meaningful opportunities to show them beyond asking pointed questions or showing kindness in removing hardware. An outstanding historical that should especially delight those fans who love reading about the American Old West after the Civil War. It was accordingg easy for me to see everything in my imagination. Mar 05, Snowtulip rated it it was amazing Accorcing to Snowtulip by: I am both sorry and glad for waiting this long to read this story.

Refresh and try again. Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there’s more to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose accordding the enigmatic man known only as Cage than merely being outlaws.

He maintained his own internal consistency which we get a look in on. The richness of detail saturates the story in a natural and all-encompassing way, which never slows the pace or gets in the way of the story.

Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. I wish she’d written a sequel but I know that isn’t likely. They get a slow and steady climb of discovery between them, as well as by me about them. I was intrigued by what all is going hyle with that…stone rlux whatever it is.

The author created some wonderful characters and teased us with the promise of more adventures involving them. Wouldn’t Stringer’s men be uncomfortable with his being gay? It held my interest thanks to the excellent physical descriptions of both place and people. In true western fashion, there is a hold up of sorts. It is wonderful and frustrating to read about Flynn trying not to show more than he thinks would be wanted or accepted. Lists with This Book.

He’s that way through most of the book. Also, what the hell was in the box?!?! It starts with the basic plot, the tale of two US marshals responsible for transporting three criminals for their judgments.

A few minor anachronisms to quibble over to which only the most curmudgeonly soul could take exception. Return to Book Page.

The story opens with a prologue of a meeting in Denver. I love historicals, love this time period, love westerns, and love a diverse cast of characters, which this is in some ways. Any spare time is spent living and dying with every Atlanta Braves and Carolina Panthers game of the year. My thanks to Riptide Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
