Tri State YA Book Review Committee - September 1, 2012
"Readers will smell the dust, hear the whizzing bullets and arrows, and experience the conflicted loyalties that are all part of Jim's story...An outstanding fast-paced tour of the Old West that will appeal to all ages."
VOYA - August 1, 2012
"This easy read has a fast moving plot and complex characters making it perfect for reluctant readers, as well as fans of historical fiction and westerns...The themes of right and wrong, discussion of death, and the message of hope will be engaging and rewarding."
Booklist - August 1, 2012
"Wilson is skilled at bestowing upon [his characters] grand, memorable gestures. This is a fine time dodging arrows along the sunbaked trail."

"This third volume of John Wilson's Desert Legends trilogy is every bit as well done as the first two...Wilson's seeming asides and occasional real historical references merely entice the reader to look further and more closely at what is presented before him...[A] well-paced tale."
CM Magazine - April 27, 2012
"Wilson is a self-confessed history addict, and his enthusiasm for creating believable stories about the past, as well as his attention to detail, has been obvious throughout the series. Victorio's War seems more realistic and authentic than many other novels about this time period, and it keeps the setting lively and entertaining for the (mostly) boys who will fall in love with the idea of a teenager on a momentous adventure.
