A stowaway on a train, running from something horrible, falls into the hands of evil men. Soon, innocent lives will be lost as human monsters will face something ancient, powerful - and hungry.

Strong distinguishable characters dealing with internal and external conflict, working towards atonement, a smooth mix of historical settings and a supernatural element that adds to, but does not overwhelm, the classic western setting.
This would fit on the "Weird Western" book shelf, but much closer to Deadwood than "Cowboys and Aliens" or "Brisco County Jr".
Rish did a great job with the voices, and paused appropriately to help make the transitions clear during flash back sequences too.
Being a western there are villains, guns, a train and a mine; but these old familiar things certainly didn't dominate the story. This story appears to start out in a recognized fashion, it just doesn't end up in the usual way. If you like some macabre with your dynamite try this.
A quality narration, I liked the voices and especially the pacing. It moved along lively like, and there was no need to back it up and listen to anything again.
