Gunslinger Girl


  • “Dirty politics has its grip in this Western-like dystopia… [Ely] leaves the door ajar for Pity’s return–and it would be a dang shame if she has ridden permanently off into the sunset.”―Bulletin for the Center for Children’s Books STARRED review
  • “Debut author Ely brings to life a gritty future American West… a little Into the Badlands, a little Firefly, a whole lot to say about how right and wrong so often borrow from each other.”―Kirkus
  • “Ely’s Gunslinger Girl is as thrilling as a three-ring circus, and just as hard to look away from. With an intricately woven plot of political intrigue and characters so vivid that they vibrate off the page, it’s an unputdownable firecracker of a debut. Readers will be left hungry for more!”
    ―Natalie C. Anderson, author of City of Saints & Thieves
  • “A gripping, action-packed futuristic Western with an unforgettable heroine–Gunslinger Girl is not to be missed!”―Elizabeth Briggs, New York Times bestselling author of Future Shock
  • Equal parts futuristic dystopia and gritty western, Gunslinger Girl is genre-bending at its finest. Much like the theater in which her sharpshooting heroine performs, Ely’s debut dazzles and stuns.
    Erin Bowman, author of Vengeance Road and Retribution Rails
  • “An action-packed, thrilling read in an exciting, genre-bending book. Ely introduces readers to a dystopian wild west that is brilliantly imagined…a plot full of surprises, temptation, betrayal, and, of course, shootouts will be a welcome addition to the dystopia bookshelf.”―VOYA
