Sheriff Walt Longmire, His Long Time Friend Henry Standing Bear, And His Undersheriff Victoria Moretti Are Returning From A Fishing Trip In The Bighorn Mountains When Walt Receives A Distress Call From Crazy Woman Canyon Forest Service Ranger Chuck Coon Is In Trouble Walt, The Bear, And Vic Arrive To Find Coon And A Young Woman Up A Tree, So To Speak The Unlikley Duo Are Fending Off Three Very Real Bears From The Top Of A Porta Potty And Tell A Mystifying Story Of Another Dangerous Creature Inside The Convenience When Walt, Henry, And Vic Face The Creature What They Find May Be A Messenger From The Camp Of The Dead, With A Very Personal Tie To Walt Himself Nice little character piece featuring Walt, Vic and Henry Some of the books don t always have time for moments that aren t plot driven, so getting to spend some off time with three of the best Longmire characters is always welcome It s only twenty pages or so but prequels the next full novel A Serpent s Tooth nicely and includes a sample Chapter to tease or tempt But I m sure everybody must be hooked by now Walt and Henry in close proximity are always good value. This is the third novella of this series that I ve read and I really enjoyed it I love the mystical aspects of each one, plus I m a fan of the Longmire TV series, which is what attracted my attention to this series in the first place There are nine full length books and 4 novellas, so far I only read three of the novellas I desperately need to catch up with this series. I ve grown to love these characters mainly from the TV show but, through these novellas, I ve come to appreciate them even I just wish they were longer, but then they wouldn t be novellas and it just shows I need to read the full length novels FTC Disclosure NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book to review This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way All opinions expressed are my own. This is a short story I m a bit ashamed that it is going to count as a title in my Goodreads reader s challenge Walt and Henry have gone fishing and Vic tags along They catch fish, they receive a distress call and the story kicks off A forest ranger, a tourist, hungry bears, a trapped owl, an unsavory job which falls to Vic all these elements work together pretty easily and logically and the only dimension of wonder is what Bear tells us about the owl In Castaneda s book The Teachings of Don Juan the reader, me, is following along, listening to Don Juan s view of the world and not taking it seriously and then Carlos and Don Juan go out into the real world and meet a crow Don Juan says it is in fact a witch And what are you going to do Suddenly his wild beliefs are made concrete I didn t have quite the same sense here, but I did realize that for all his banter Henry Standing Walt, the Cheyenne Nation Henry and Vic come up against an owl. Humorous and enjoyable story, yet the serious point is that situation is indeed accurate and deadly to owls. But it is indeed a fun visit to Absaroka County. Johnson is just excellent Have enjoyed every Longmire book I have read, including this one.
Messenger is a Longmire series short story which takes place between Book 8 As the Crow Flies And Book 9 A Serpent s Tooth Since it is 58 pages long it doesn t necessarily merit a full review, a few comments will suffice. The story begins with Sheriff Walt Longmire, his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, and Deputy Vic Moretti returning from a fishing trip in the Bighorn Mountains when they receives a distress call from Crazy Woman Canyon A forest service ranger and a civilian are in trouble Walt, Henry, and Vic arrive to find Coon and the civilian woman trapped on top of a Porta potty by a mother bear and her cubs In addition to the bears there is also a dangerous creature who attacked the woman, hiding in the Porta potty Upon investigation, Walt, Henry, and Vic, must rescue an owl a Messenger from the camp of the dead from the bowels of the potty befo Walt Longmire, his best friend Henry and his under sheriff Vic are on their way back from a fishing trip when they get a call for help This ends up in saving folks from bears and an owl from a certain death The image you get from Henry Walt holding Vic upside down in the reservoir of a toilet to save the bird made me laugh really loud. A short and really funny little story which illustrates all strengths that Craig Johnson has put in his Longmire series If you have never read any of the books and want to know what the Longmire series is about this is a short story that introduces you to the Longmire world. Well worth your while.
