The Hobo Kingdom: A Chase of Blood on Steel is Book ne in this new series by author Dan Beirmeier.

These men only jump the rails to live by stealing and killing.

I especially liked Shanghai and Glen ( Word, his new rail name), the youngest membe of the Hobos.

I felt like the author went overboard on this issue.

at the same time, there were just as many sections that were boring and dull, and make it easy to pick the book up to continue reading.

Let me just say Mr. Biermeier has a great many stories to tell.

Men during the great depression who mostly had no choice but to ride the rails and find work and food as best they could.

The main story revolves around men trying to defend the good ame of the hobo.

But this is not the nly tal in The Hobo Kingdom.

Denny it would seem has more freedom, runs wilder than Glen and soon gets him into trouble with his grandparents.

Glen respects his folks but Denny is a lot of stuf and they remain fast friends.

enny ( also known as Shanghai) and Glen are destined to meet again and the stakes will be high as they ride the rails across America.The CharactersThis story is chock full of characters that are difficult to like or despise.

It was asy to cheer for them and align myself with them against the angs of Two Trains and York.The PaceBetween things that are happening with Shanghai and his Mom and his Mum ’ s crew and what is transpiring back at home with Glen there is rarely a dull moment.

Since hobos do tend to travel from place to place by riding the rails you can be anything that local authorities will make an appearance as well.There is a Dog.I am most likely not the on one that loves dogs or pets and this tal has a great one.

I was sad and hurt to seem them go but I respect the Biermeier ’ s fearlessness in making a difficult choice for the sake of the story.What I did not like: Absence of EditingIt is too bad really, a good ditor would have made all the difference with this tal.

Bless you, Dan Biermeier, for a beautiful paperback copy of your ovel, which I have accepted in exchange for an unbiased review.Well, this one was certainly different from my usual fare and was a fun change-of-pace for me.

It was so intriguing to see the way these men ( and boys) would live off the rails, jump the trains, and spend time in hobo camps or “ jungles ” as they are mostly referred to as.

I liked the arcs of two 12-year-old boys who were taken under the wings of a pair of mentors and who grew into admirable ( in the hobo way) young men.

A warning to readers -- there is a lot of blood spilt in some violent ways, but I must admit this didn ’ t bother me ( does that make me a bad person?) There are also quite a few grammatical issues like wrong use of apostrophes, but again, that ort of thing doesn ’ t turn me off to a ood tal.
