AudioFile says "Narrator Greg Tremblay re-creates the 1880s as President Grover Cleveland enlists Remy Kincaid, the son of carnies, to help with paranormal activities that are afflicting the American West. Listeners join Kincaid and his horse, Fable, who talks by thought speech, as they travel to Wharton, Texas, searching for kids who vanish, then reappear. Colorful descriptions of the town, its people, food, and gambling add atmosphere. Most appealing are Sheriff McCallister, who personifies the Wild West, and Fable, who advises, rebukes, and saves Kincaid in equal measure. Fascinating historical details, including a touching romance between Kincaid and the vivaciously rendered Dr. Maggie Brown, add interest. Tremblay's gripping characterizations of inhuman mutations created by mysterious experiments make for a heart-pounding listen."
