Determined to take the headcount where it’s needed to go, Cavatica Weller refuses to stand on the sidelines while the Vixxs and Regios are intent on doing away with her and her sisters. The fact that they harbor a guarded secret is of no consequence. Their lives are on the line. There’s no way they’re going to cede their freedom when they’re so close to achieving an end to their own means.

Machine-Gun Girls picks up where book 1 left off, right in the heart of Cavatica’s plight. She and her sisters refuse to step down from what they deem is right. They’ve so much to contend with, yet they don’t back down from their ultimate goals no matter what comes their way.

Aaron paints such vivid pictures that you can imagine the world these girls and the rest of the characters live in. I kid you not! The America within this series is so different from the America we know now. The book honestly makes me want to explore it. To see the contrasts of both worlds with my own eyes. That’s how good the author has created the visuals for the complex world he’s created.

I honestly can’t wait to see what’s coming next for Cavatica and the others. Hopefully, they’ll be able to shape the world exactly how they want it to be.


In the future, the United States will sew flags with only forty-five stars…

By 2058, both the Sino-American War and the Sterility Epidemic have decimated the male population. Electricity does not function in five western states. Collectively, they are known as the Juniper. It is the most dangerous place on Earth.

Cavatica Weller and her sisters have one chance to save their family ranch—a desperate cattle drive across a violent wasteland. Having escaped from Denver, the Weller family now has to face the Juniper’s worst outlaw, the Psycho Princess.

Meanwhile, an inhuman army still dogs their every step. The mystery deepens—who is the lost boy Micaiah? Why would the richest man on Earth spend billions to find him? And will Micaiah’s secrets tear the Weller sisters apart?

Aaron Michael Ritchey was born with Colorado thunderstorms in his soul. He’s sought shelter as a world traveler, an endurance athlete, a story addict, and even gave serious thought to becoming a Roman Catholic priest. After too brief a time in Paris, he moved back to the American West and lives semi-comfortably with three forces of nature: a little, blonde hurricane, an artistic tornado, and a beautiful, beautiful blizzard.
