A good one!

The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl

4 1/2 GOLD (out of a possible 5 stars -- 4 1/2 gold is "phenomenal")

In this genre-bending debut novel, Pratt has written a fantastical Western that is full of love and affection for westerns, for Santa Cruz, and for the damaged souls who populate the world.

Marzi McCarty, night manager of Genius Loci, the oddest coffee shop in Santa Cruz, may spend her nights slinging espresso, but her days are spent crafting her comic book, The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl.

Soon Marzi realizes that Rangergirl's reality is bleeding into hers and, in order to defeat Rangergirl's nemesis, the Outlaw, she's going to have face her fractured past and her fears. Accompanied by her best friend, Lindsay, and her possible love interest Jonathan, Marzi faces down the Outlaw, a primal god with a distinctly apocalyptic bent.

Marzi is an incredibly sympathetic heroine whose struggles become the reader's, and her world becomes as real as ours. A stunning accomplishment, this book will appeal to many readers. Bits and pieces of many fantastic genres represented here, fused into a coherent whole that is something completely new and wonderful.

The review isn't up on their website yet (I'm not sure if it ever will be -- I don't know if they reprint all their reviews online, or only some), but the page with the rating is online here, so you know I ain't lying...

[Update: in the comments, the reviewer says it should be online in 2 or 3 months, so I'll link to it all legit-like then.]
