Publisher's Summary

Sterling Monedero isn't your typical necromancer.

Even with the game system and mancer class forced onto him by the alien monoliths known as Godwalkers, Sterling just wants to farm his peppers in peace and live out the rest of his troubled existence in quiet. He did that whole "trying to get revenge on the Godwalkers" thing five years ago, and failed miserably. 

But when the Godwalkers show back up for their own bit of revenge, and Killbilly bandits appear trying to impose a pepper tax, the tough-as-bones loner decides enough is enough. It's time to reassemble the team, kick some much needed ass, and put an end to the alien threat once and for all. Or die trying. 

Set in a richly imagined post-apocalyptic New Mexico, this gritty LitRPG western features superpowered mancers, terrifying animal-skeletal hybrids, an intricate game system, and a big dose of Southwestern mysticism. Inspired by The Dark Tower, Old Man Logan, and Red Dead Redemption, best-selling author Harmon Cooper takes you on a high-octane thrill ride through desolate landscapes and dystopian urban decay.

Such a satisfying experience.

a lone bone horseman,
ill winds blow across the plains,
an early christmas.


Thank you kindly for this masterful book and audio book. My most enjoyable read/listen this year hands down.

Not for me

I got roughly 3 hours in before I put this down.

While not entirely accurate, it felt like every bit of conflict was of the Cowboy's own making. Not subtley either, but in a National Lampoon's kind of way where you can trace the cause and effect line all the way back through a series of bone-headed decisions.

The final straw was when, after picking up some stealth and assassination skills and making his way through a bandit camp to one of their big leaders... he wakes him up and is forced to flee when he calls for guards (the guards he also didn't kill).

I'm not about this kind of protagonist. I find it way too frustrating a reading experience.

I'll be returning this.

Very Good listen

The book is over top and it only gets better from there. The person who is reading it does an amazing job of getting into the character. The explanation of the story goes great throughout the book. It even has some really great twists and turns. Takes a very big flavor from any video games if you have played any. If you are looking for a really good, gripping, and engaging story then this is the one you want. Definitely worth the buy.

original idea and very fun

I was skeptical at first about the game like system the characters are placed in but it quickly grew on me and I really appreciated the original idea. before I knew it I felt like I was playing the game myself. The performance was amazing. Just fantastic narration and a perfect cowboy voice.

Weird West Win

Well researched and so much fun. Some weird west stories take themselves too seriously. That's fine and it has its place, but with Infinite Dusk, Mr. Cooper strikes a wonderful balance between real world and fiction that has a healthy dose of the absurd while making it all feel like normality. The litrpg elements are well done. The world building makes me want to be there (hopefully as a 'mancer class). the characters feel like real people in an absurd circumstance who...well...no spoilers.

This is the first piece of work I've read from Harmon Cooper. it won't be the last. MacLeod Andrews does a superb narration of the whole cast.

Take your time with the next one, Mr. Cooper, just don't take too much time. 😉

Not normally a fan of LITRPG's but

I really enjoyed this book, it was fun, oddly educational about Peppers, Spanish and New Mexico (in a good way).

Bam

Sorry not a big review person. But I did enjoy this book new to the litrpg thing . The story is good and well read by the narrator. So if you enjoy litrpg books you will definitely enjoy this book.

great story

the narrator for this was perfect! I would have given this tough as nails apocalyptic, western a 5 star rating but there was quite a bit of repetition in part 1, describing historical facts more than once.

But if you love borderlands you'll love this book all it is missing is a tiny Tina blowing stuff up.

Damn good, gritty and pepper spicy

I don't enjoy books where the main character goes from a nobody to overpowered in the first chapter and when this book starts the main character is already level 59. However, he doesn't feel massively overpowered. I mean he does go around killing multiple opponents but that seems reasonable and there is often (but not always) a sense that he is in danger and things could turn out really badly for him.

I'm also not a big fan of Westerns but this cowboy story is appealing. It has moments where it feels like Stephen King's The Dark Tower series and other moments where it is uniquely Harmon Cooper. The Mexican sprinkled in, the food references (so many peppers!) and the gritty desert feeling add up to a really enjoyable book.

Near the end with the Shaman and his on-again, off-again lover, I wanted to shout "I told you so!" You could feel something bad was going to happen but it was almost inevitable and unstoppable.

The story swept me along, sometimes grinning, sometimes kicking and screaming but always engaged.

I'm off to get the next book in the series.

Masterful Work

Another new Cooper series and a new team up with the narrator Macleod Andrews.
First of all the story set in a post apocalyptic world has the usual main antagonists and gangs but the powers that people have gained make the difference as Sterling gives up his pepper farm to level up and take care of those responsible for its destruction. Cooper always does well at setting the scene in his books and this is no different with detailed storytelling and engrossing plots.
This is my first time listening to Macleod Andrews, one of those trepidation moments and he suits the characters well always a relief when it works out with the story.

Different and it works

A crossover of genres with a great narrator.
Its mad max with powers in a distorted sci-fi western setting that could be a matrix or the oasis ready player one. I don’t know!
Characters are alive and interesting without being generic.
Storyline flows well and keep you in.
Found the updating of stat points/powers/levels of the characters a bit weird but not distracting enough to turn me away.
Just need the second book to come out now.

Excellent character development

A post apocalyptic journey by a reluctant necromancer, astride his bone steed.

Highly detailed and wonderfully relatable as the story unfolds. Learn about chili peppers, New Mexico and the fearsome Godwalkers who have brought about the fall of civilization.

A steady hand, an enchanted gun and a pocket full of chilli peppers might be enough to get started; but how will it end?

A great story and I enjoyed every minute.
