Audiences had long asked author David Bain for more stories on Gentleman Jim "The Demon Duelist" Brodie and Dr. Darius Darke from the story "The Cowboys of Cthulhu". Well - here you be, pard! Riders Where There Are No Roads is the first full novel in the Riders of the Weird West series. There's roping, riding, an interdimensional badass, shootouts, demon cowboys, a dragon, a pickup that's really a horse (or is it the other way around?) and a mystical biker/cosmic marshal who might just be orchestrating it all!

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
THE WATER WAS SO BLUE IT WAS ALMOST GREEN
This has to be the absolute worse book I have ever come across. HISTORY IS MADE BY THOSE WHO TELL IT. Don't let the influenced reviewers tell it. I'm ON A MISSION FROM GOD. Bain takes us on a drug induced dream that makes no sense. It is not a good fantasy, not a good western, not readable. I did not get this for free, I wasted my money, don't you make the same mistake.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
I absolutely loved RIDERS WHERE THERE ARE NO ROADS. This was such an awesome story. I would say it was even somewhat of a noir-ish weird western. David Bain is an exceptional author whose work really resonates with me. RIDERS grabbed me from the start and I didn't want it to end. I felt as if I was right there. It held my attention entirely. I definitely want to hear more.
I love the setting of this story and the characters were Amazing. All of them. I especially liked Rosarita Bandita. She was something else. I was glued to this audiobook and I'd highly recommend this one not only for the awesome writing but the killer narration.
Daniel Penz. All I can say is WOW. His performance was incredibly good. Every character had a distinct voice and persona and they were ALL excellent. If I had to choose one, I'd go back to Rosarita. I was blown away by how he nailed her accent and her character. He is a very talented voice actor. This was a fab author/reader win. Loved it.

I found recorded books as we prepared to drive from Texas to Colorado and back. Since then I dont run into things when reading,
An engaging Weird West book. Mr. Penz's perfomance was amazing. All those characters with different voices! How does he do it?
I enjoyed the wonderful telling of this strange story.
Each character has his or her own voice, and I could never do that if I were just reading it myself.
"When the Riding gets Weird, the Weird Start Riding"
A great listen. I only wish it had lasted twice as long!

Just your everyday nerd cowboy. I like listening while riding pens and checking pastures.
before reading this review I must disclose that I was given this book for free. for my unbiased and honest review.
The story was a little difficult to get into as well as follow . But once I was a ways into the book I couldn't put it down, I even went back and listened to parts a second time.
The narrator does a fabulous job with the different characters. the only possible complaint would be that he read a little slow because of the details put into each character.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that like the X-files or Dr. Who
I thought the story was interesting enough yet rather slow paced. I speed up the audible version to 1.5x. That helped me to stay with it. I loved the narrator and his use of multiple voices. I think that helped tremendously. I am giving this 4 stars for the original elements of the story and the exceptional narrator. Even if I struggled to finish it...that may just be me having trouble staying focused. I am going through that phase of reading about 5 or 6 books at once right now and trying not to start another before I finish the ones open. Happy to have finished this one deep down...I really can't explain why :/
