Whether one has read the series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, played the games released by CD Projekt Red, or watched the newly released Netflix series, one has most certainly at least heard of the well-known Witcher series.

Readers, players, and viewers alike will follow Geralt of Rivia, a witcher who is a mutated human being who has the abilities to kill the monsters no normal man can.

Every reader has a favorite “go-to” genre, but after reading so many of the same type of book for an extended period of time, it is always nice to read a new book from a new genre.

I was given that opportunity with author Chris Enss’ most recent novel, According To Kate.

Synopsis of According To Kate: Kate Elder went by many names in her life, the more well-known ones including Big Nose Kate and Mary Kate Cummings. What is not as well-known is the life Kate led.

Now, readers can hear from Kate herself as her life has finally been published to the public. While some of her retellings may not seem accurate (such as her claim to having witnessed the gunfight at the OK Corral) and no one can truly discover what is real and what is embellished, there is still much to explore in history through Kate’s words. …
