Publisher's Summary

The Bloody Conflict is long over. The lands are now controlled by despots, crooked cattle barons, energy hoarders, and anyone with enough might to keep the local folks under control.
For Clay Macaulay, none of that matters as he roams the land in a war machine from a time gone by. He wants nothing to do with small desert towns or brutal dictators. He only has his sights set on a new life. Unfortunately for Clay, too many ruthless people want what he has. They want the war machine he pilots. They want the battle mech that shouldn't exist anymore.
They want his Fighting Iron.
But they will have to pry Clay's cold, dead body out of that pilot's seat before they can take it from him. And he plans on fighting them every massive mech step of the way!
A far-future mech western, Fighting Iron is a rip-roaring sci-fi adventure filled with six-shooters, plasma canons, rough and rowdy saloon brawls, showdowns, corrupt landowners, and 50-foot battle machines ready to crush everything in their path!

Fighting Iron is a story about Clay and his Fighting Iron. They want it and he will do almost anything to prevent them from taking it. I wish I could explain it better than this line from the synopsis, but I cannot: "A far-future mech western, Fighting Iron is a rip-roaring sci-fi adventure filled with six-shooters, plasma canons, rough and rowdy saloon brawls, showdowns, corrupt landowners, and 50-foot battle machines ready to crush everything in their path!"

Fighting Iron was narrated by J. Scott Bennett who does a really nice job. The book sounded great, with no issues or problems at all. Bennett's voice allowed this futuristic western play out just the way I think that Bible had intended it to.

This was an interesting book. Part science fiction and part western. Fighting Iron really had a lot going on. And it was coming from all fronts. The character development was really thought out allowing each important person to have their own backstory without taking away from the narrative too much.

The action was fast-paced and made sense, and there was a lot of it. Jake Bible knows how to write intricate stories like this that have lots of action without making it feel like there is too much action.

Western's aren't really my thing, but I still found myself really enjoying this. The way that Bible writes really draws you in and keeps you there.
