New York Times Bestselling Author Completes the Five-Book Texicans Saga with Release of The Banshees
The Banshees by Parris Afton Bonds
The Texicans series was born in 2019 with the release of The Banshees, by Parris Afton Bonds.The five books beautifully narrate the tale of the Paladín family.

Before there was New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, or Utah, there was Texas. Molded by Old Mexico and a new rough and ready breed of hearty settlers from around the world, The Lone Star Republic was the thing of dreams—land, riches, liberty, home. For the Paladín family, it is all of those things and so much more. 

The saga spans over 100 years, beginning with The Brigands in the first half of the nineteenth century, and ending in The Cold War era with The Banshees. In this final installment, the Paladín progeny find themselves center stage in the great military, political, and social tumult of the mid-twentieth century.

Bonds states about her latest work, “Texas is rich in historical drama. From early on, I felt compelled to write its saga. The five-volume series of The Texicans ranges from The Brigands’ epic Battle of San Jacinto in 1836, one of the decisive battles of the world; proceeds through The Bravados’ Great Galveston Hurricane in 1900, still the deadliest natural disaster and the worst hurricane in U.S. history; encompasses The Betrayers’ tingling tale of the Cold War, when NASA was created in Houston to counter Russia’s threat to dominate the world; and concludes with The Banshees in 1963 in Dallas with the shocking presidential assassination.”

Bonds is no stranger to historical fiction, and has published more than 50 novels since she began writing in 1972. She often weaves a tale that is a mixture of hard facts, and what might have been.
