Almena Guillory, better known as the Grizzly Queen of the West, has plenty to recommend her for the noose, but US Marshal Apostle Richardson enforces the law, he doesn't decide it. When a posse tries to lynch Almena ahead of her trial, Apostle refuses their form of expedited justice - and receives a bullet for his trouble. Before escaping, however, Almena unexpectedly saves his life by absorbing his wound through the use of dangerous flesh magic.

I'd never heard of this genre, but on the recommendation of another author that I especially like, I gave this a try - and got rewarded with a delightful story set in the old West and shortly after the Civil War. The narration felt just a tiny bit slow so I set the speed at 1.05 and greatly enjoyed the whole thing. Give the classic Western song by the same name a listen to set the mood and enjoy a well told story.

A larval Great Old One is growing day by day in power and just about ready to pop. If Chad Gadenier can't convince "the powers that be" to get involved, not only New Orleans, but the entire world, is going to fall under the power of the nastiest of nasties. Now on the outs with the US government and in exile from his usual job of saving the world, Chad must rally the forces of light against the coming darkness. The problem is one guy with a sword and a sub-gun isn't going to solve this one.

This book was well worth the wait and was a *fine* conclusion to a very enjoyable storyline.
