Zeke and Abbie have a wonderful legacy and The 7th book to the Savage Destiny Series will definitely take your breath away at times. Zeke and Abbie have a wonderful legacy and a beautiful family. Abigail Monroe is a very strong woman and a true pioneer of the West. It just amazes me when I think about Abbie being a 15 year old girl that headed west with her family on a wagon train and lost all of that family.
Eye of the Eagle
She falls in love with the half breed scout, Zeke Monroe, on that train West and they go on and have 7 children. These 7 children, one lost so young, the others struggle to find their Destiny in the world. Some of them find their way more in the Indian way of life, others more in the white world. All in all its definitely been, a Savage Destiny. View all 4 comments. My heart felt every emotion possible with these two - I cried, laughed, stressed, rejoiced, cheered, worried along with them. If I could only keep one set of fiction books, this would be it, hands down, no hesitation!
I think that's another reason why I so enjoy this series - it didn't just stop at the wedding - we get to experience all their joys and struggles through their married life - but yet how much stronger their love grows over time. I was relieved to finally get to this book. My heart had been so involved with the Monroes that I was glad to have a final conclusion to their story.
I loved that the final chapter in their saga ended years beyond the wedding and we got to see a glimpse into their family's future through the grandkid's lives. I was saddened with all the struggles and tragedies that still were prevalent in this family, but yet the strength of their love-bond proved unbreakable. I loved that there was several new happily-ever-afters for many. I just wish that it didn't take so long for Abbie to be reunited with Zeke at the end, but hey, I've noticed that RB tends to do that to my fav characters - make 'em wait for what they really want!
Although, with as much as my heart tends to be involved with Zeke and his Abbie, I'll need to take extended breaks between visits. View 1 comment. Dec 30, Vicki rated it it was amazing. These books take you on an emotional roller coaster ride!

You'll laugh, you'll cry These books were so well-written They take you back to a time in American History that is romantic, scary, tragic, rugged - the expansion into the American West in the mids. These books offer a spectacular historical account of what those years of settlement were like, both for Whites and American Indians. The author did a fabulous job of bringing this period of American History to life.
I almost feel like a part of me has died now that I've finished reading this Savage Destiny series by Rosanne Bittner. I literally feel like I was a part of the Monroe family. I have never read a love story like this and I will be hard-pressed to find one like this again. I'm glad I bought them all, so that I can re-read them whenever I want. And I will re-read them, again and again!
Mar 25, Sandra rated it it was amazing. This is the final book in the Zeke and Abby saga. God how I cried at so many points in the series as well as smiled. I really enjoyed how well Bittner wrapped everything up. I was so sad for it all to end but this is definitely a series I will always love and treasure.

I have never read an author who makes me feel, both good and bad, the way Mrs. Bittner does. Downside: The only downside for me is this is the end of the series.

I would have dearly loved for Mrs. Bittner to carry this series all the way through history to the present day. Sex: Mrs. Bittner is not known to me for her love scenes. They are fairly standard and only mildly exciting, focusing more on the emotions of the act than the esoterics. The violence is not graphic.

Together they faced many hardships, racism, and cruelty from the invasion of settlers and soldiers, who killed many of their friends and loved ones, but not their enduring love for each other, their children, and the Indian people. Each time I reached the deaths of loved ones I literally sobbed many tears for their losses.
A truly epic series of Love for all time. And history continues to repeat the disregard and prejudice toward the Indian nations and all people of different ethnic backgrounds. Why is Love for others so hard to obtain in this society? However, the law shows up quickly, prompting suspicion from John, although they still manage to make off with the money.

The duo kill the grave robbers, although the police arrive the cemetery after hearing gunshots, forcing John and Arthur manage to sneak out of the cemetery and evade them.
When they return to Bronte's mansion, Dutch is there waiting for them, along with Jack. They then head back to camp, and the gang throw a party to celebrate Jack's return. Dutch also believes that John is losing faith in him where, in return, John begins challenging some of Dutch's decisions. Inside the house, John comes across Bronte and knocks him unconscious with a punch to the face. Later, John witnesses Bronte being drowned by Dutch and fed to an alligator, which he is shocked by.

However, Dutch berates Arthur and Sadie for getting John back earlier than intended, even though the law began making plans to have John hanged.
At this point, Dutch's relationship with Arthur has also become strained due to Arthur's change in behaviour mainly due to his diagnosis of TB , and this started affecting John and his family as well, since Dutch distrusts them even more after the failed bank robbery in Saint Denis. John and Arthur, on orders from Dutch, blow up Bacchus Bridge with the stolen dynamite. During this operation, Arthur convinces John that he and his family should run away from the crumbling gang, once they have the money. The feeling that they need to get out is escalated even more as Dutch becomes increasingly influenced and corrupted by Micah, who acts as his new right hand man.

Afterwards, he formally marries Abigail, with both looking forward to living a new life on their ranch with Jack. Sadie and Charles leave Beecher's Hope and the Marston family on good terms.
Edgar Ross, the newly appointed head of the Bureau of Investigation catches wind of the events on Mount Hagen and goes to investigate, finding nothing but Micah's corpse and no trace of the missing Blackwater money. Alongside his new subordinate, Archer Fordham , they begin a manhunt for the culprit, questioning various people until they trace the murder to John's location at Beecher's Hope.
John continues working on his ranch with his family for the next few years, unaware that his revenge against Micah would eventually cost him his freedom. Four years later in , the old American West is dying. Encroaching technological advances such as railroads, telegram offices, and stronger law enforcement begin to integrate themselves into western society. The federal government wants the Bureau of Investigation to aid in the process of civilizing the west by ridding the region of all of the savage gangs running wild and unchallenged, especially that of Bill Williamson and Dutch van der Linde.
Not wanting to make martyrs out of them, Ross decides to use an ex-associate of Williamson's that the Bureau had been watching to hunt him down: former outlaw John Marston. By kidnapping John's wife and son, Ross forces him to comply. Thus, John is forced to roam the frontier once again to protect his family. John arrives in Blackwater on the ferry "Morningstar" and is escorted by Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham through town to be sent off by train to Armadillo. Once there, John finds a guide named Jake hired by the local marshal in the saloon. The talkative guide questions Marston about his motives but gets no answers in return.
In confronting his old friend, Marston tries to reason with Williamson in giving up peacefully, but Williamson taunts John for his vocabulary, proudly proclaiming that he is now in charge of his own gang. John reaches for his revolver but gets shot in his lower right torso by one of Bill Williamson's outlaws.

However, their plans are temporarily delayed when Bonnie MacFarlane is kidnapped and John must help Marshal Johnson save her from being hanged. After saving Bonnie, John and his allies carry out an assault on Fort Mercer , using a "Trojan Horse" strategy by sneaking John and a Gatling gun inside the fort in Dickens' wagon. West Dickens gives them a lecture about what is inside his "miracle" wagon, before rapping sharply on the side of the wagon to signal John, who shows himself and kills most of the outlaws while assaulting the fort. However, after the battle, the crew discover that Williamson had fled the previous morning and went into exile in the Mexican province of Nuevo Paraiso with Javier Escuella.
