Book Description

What is The Bleed Country? The space between words in a prayer and the last number in Pi. It is where faith & dreams are held safe, where unborn terrors lurk and all the answers are painted in colors that don't exist. There have always been Agents who protect Bleed Country, individuals granted powers who walk the under-roads known as The Scar and seek to keep the balance. But now cards have been thrown, and while the only true constant in this reality is change, it is coming faster and more surely than anyone could have predicted. Sides will be drawn for the battle of Bleed Country, and not everyone will survive...

The DarkRedPress Special Edition of In Bleed Country contains the original novel, plus character illustrations done by the author along with three new Bleed Country short stories. “Bound In Blood” speaks of an enigmatic origin, “The Brutality Coda” details a mysterious death, and “If I Only Had Some Couth” spills the secrets concerning everyone’s least favorite scarecrow.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"This bizarre, action-packed tale freaked me out and grossed me out, which is precisely what Steele is aiming for." - Court Ellyn, author of Mists Of Blackfen Bog

"
This book is a genre bending experience. It's got romance, adventure and yes, horror." - Saranna DeWylde, author of The Real Housewives Of Olympus

"
Bleed Country is that part of existence where the mystical and the horrific coexist in a tightrope dance of sight and touch, horror and beauty, love and madness." - C.L. Stegall, author of The Weight Of Night and CEO of DarkRedPress

"Disturbing but always interesting..." starred review by BittenByBooks on In Bleed Country

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Death and change comes furiously fast to those in Bleed Country. A land that exist a bit apart from our world, Bleed Country, runs on magic and the belief and faith of mankind. It is the job of the agents of Bleed Country to keep the two worlds in balance. It is important that we mere mortals believe that there is another world beyond ours, but we cannot KNOW of it.

This is the world Jeff, a young man with more gambling debts then money, finds himself drawn into and to make matters worst he draws the Death card in a very serious and life altering dealing of the tarot. Jeff after this is an agent of Bleed Country and works for Death, but neither Jeff nor anyone else in Bleed Country knows exactly what that means and that's making everyone very nervous. Changes such as this could spell the end of Bleed Country.

If this wasn't bad enough for Jeff, there is a crazed group of psychic killers, all drawing from the Devil card, running around torturing and killing people that have just discovered they have a new foe in the form of a young woman who is equally gifted as they. Worst yet, it is Jeff's first official job as a Bleed Country agent to protect this young woman... Oh, and there is also a rogue necromancer who's willing to go to any extreme to find his little sister, who's also been taken into Bleed Country. Samuel, the necromancer, is that special sort of cruel and dangerous that comes from being fully devoted to an impossible mission.

This book was a fun read. It offers lots of gore, violence, and characters that are all quite colorful, expect for the White Man of course, but how can that not be true of a book that features a racist scarecrow?

How do I even begin to describe In Bleed Country? It is a story so different from anything I have ever read that it's almost impossible to even describe it. I had previously read the original release of this book but when the new edition came out with additional stories, I bought it again. Though I loved it the first time, I think I understand it so much better now and enjoyed it even more this time around.

The first important element of this story is the world itself. Steele has a gift for world building and conceptually this universe is one of the most unique that I have ever experienced. Weaving the mundane and the esoteric, attempting to give form to the abstract, this is a world that is more felt than understood. Many of the concepts defy rational thought, as do most fantastic stories, but most of those stories are logical extensions of the world we know. The world of In Bleed Country is so different, so alien to normal human consciousness that it cannot be logically understood and must instead be felt and experienced on an emotional gut level. Sometimes I still cannot wrap my head around how these ideas even came to him. A world of dark beauty, full of the fantastic and outre, so consuming that the reader suffers reality shock when they look up from the book.

The second important element of this tale are the characters that populate it. Like many of Steele's works (such as Petty Like a God), his gift of characterization is unparalleled. His heroes are fantastically powerful and yet utterly human. The fantastic scenes are balanced against witty dialogue that feels like a conversation among friends. These are people you feel like you know or that you want to know. Their journey is one that many will see themselves in.
