Rodger Dodger decided to take on the job of security for the unusual standalone train, only to find the professor’s precocious niece has been taken hostage. Join him as he straps on the biggest pair of guns this side of the Mississippi and tracks down the kidnapped damsel, finding his own distress along the way.
The dogs of war have it out for our Dodger, and it will take every ounce of skill he possesses if he wants to survive.
Tonia Brown has yet again sucked me in and left me hanging…this time for a lot longer than a week. **DAMN YOU, Tonia Brown!!** This time around in Railroad Volume 2: Dogs of War, our protagonist, Rodger Dodger, is headed out of town preparing for his new position as security for the Sleipnir. Unfortunately, his services are needed a lot quicker than even he expected as an unwelcome messenger shows up with an ultimatum from his boss to come to their camp or the girl gets it. What girl you ask? Well, we briefly met Lelanea in Volume 1, but we learn a lot more about Ms Lelanea in Volume 2. She has a spunky don’t mess with me attitude, is very intelligent and is the niece of the Professor. Upon entering the encampment of the ‘pack’ we meet the leader Butch who personality and appearance, honestly, just fits his name…just add in the furriness and features of a dog. Thaddaus is one of Butch’s pack members, but he sees that the way Butch wants to run the group is not necessarily the best way to go about doing so.
As with Volume 1, Railroad Volume 2: Dogs of War is filled with action and suspense, a hint of romance…or maybe not. Dog people, an engineer with a secret (I’ve already guessed) , a ghost and many more off the wall characters that you can’t help but love and find entertaining.

In the words of Tonia Brown herself…”Railroad is a fast pace steampunk story of gadgetry, gunplay and grit.”
