Wylder Times Review
Today’s review is of Pam Binder’s Wylder Times, part of The Wild Rose Press’ historical series taking place in a fictional town called Wylder, Wyoming.
Pam Binder seamlessly weaves a tale of magical proportion in Wylder Times, a novel set in 19th century Wyoming Territory and 21st century Pacific Northwest. Combining shapeshifters, time travel, intrigue, and a love story between strong, courageous characters from different centuries, Binder captures the reader’s attention on the first page and maintains it throughout page-turning events. Each chapter ends with such a compelling hook that you’ll want to keep reading. I devoured it!
Douglas Eagle Greyeyes, shapeshifter and member of the Blackfoot tribe, rescues a beautiful woman, but the signs in the stars tell him her arrival in his world is not accidental. His mortal enemy will soon attack, and the woman could either save or destroy him.
Vanessa O’Casey witnesses her mother’s hit-and-run death. Descended from Irish Travelers, she and her mother never settled anywhere, and Vanessa finally realizes they were running from someone. But she never asked to be sent to another time.
When the killer finds Vanessa, she and Greyeyes must fight—not just for their lives but against their growing attraction—if they are to defeat a common enemy as powerful as the forces of nature.
As we are both published authors with The Wild Rose Press, I asked Pam if she would share some interesting tidbits about herself and her creative process.
First came Pam Binder’s imaginary friend – a dragon – when she was three. Five years later, Pam tumbled down a flight of stairs and had a near-death, out-of-body experience. She attributes both experiences to her love of writing fantasy. Pam is a New York Times and USA Today author and writes fantasy, time travel, historical, contemporary and young adult fiction.
Publishers Weekly has said: “Binder gracefully weaves elements of humor, magic and romantic tensions into her novels”. Drawn to Celtic legends and anything Irish or Scottish, Pam blends historical events, characters, and myths into everything she writes. Pam received the 2018 Pioneer in Romance award from the Romantic Times, is a conference speaker, and is president of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
