When I first started this book, my only thought was: how will a book that is a mash-up of horror and western work? The answer - not bad at all. Whil..Show More »e many of the tropes of both genres are present (western: stranger rolling into town, action centered on a brothel; horror: evil deadly creature stalking unsuspecting prey), the combination makes them seem fresher than they would otherwise. The story has enough twists and surprises that, once you get into the story, you'll find it keeps your interest and moves things forward at a steady pace.
If I could use 1/2-star ratings, I'd give it 3-1/2 stars for story and 2-1/2 for performance though. As I rule, I am always wary of an author reading his own work (not everyone can be brilliant twice over, you know). While the author is not monotone, he uses some tricks to make the different voices stand out that could be difficult at times. Overall, though, this book is definitely worth the listen.
