A simple yet ambitious tale that hints of significant conclusions and portentous beginnings ... This series has been excellent since its inception. Box has never been afraid to change things up and seems to be on the verge of doing so once again if the ending — one of the very best I have ever read — is any indication. I would urge readers who are unfamiliar with these books to jump in right now with both feet. Disappointment is not an option.
By all means, don’t hesitate—grab Dark Sky and don’t put it down until it’s done ... Box is an accomplished storyteller, and Dark Sky is an effortless read. His use of setting, in this case the fictional Twelve Sleep Valley and its attendant mountains, is very effective ... There’s a remarkably strong sense of place here that centers the story and anchors us firmly in the action.
Joe Pickett gets a miserable assignment in bestseller Box’s well-paced 21st novel featuring the Wyoming game warden: to guide Steve Price, the multibillionaire CEO of Aloft, a social media company, on an elk hunting trip ... Still, this is another page-turner for Box, who writes lyrically about big sky country.
