Seriously, the story is good. It's a book that's good when you got some time to kill and aren't in the mood for those long winded stories of intricate design.
The characters are a plenty, and are designed enough to get the plot moving without having to resort to oh-did-I-forget-to-mention-this-as-some-sort-of-motive. (Jesus Christ I should have thought of something shorter but my mind don't work like that).
The baddie is just that, a baddie with a heart to kill and nothing else. At least that's what I got out of it. The minions are as vicious as you'd think, and are actually pretty entertaining.
It has a lot going for it. And judging from the other reviews, it's a personal taste thing.
Note: one thing that I didn't like, was that the dialogue wasn't separated. Sometimes, two to three characters would speak within the same paragraph and it led me to being a bit confused. If there was any true complaint about the book, that would be it.
Note 2: Having done a reread on this, I can say that I now know what it was that bugged me. It wasn't so much the style, as it was the formatting. The style, is actually not a big deal. One chapter was all it took this time around, but the formatting was odd. I had to reread several passages to get it a bit understood better.
All that said, I originally had this at a 3.5. Now, I'd say it's a solid 4. It's a good book, good story, characters are entertaining, and it's all around fun.
I was gifted this book for an honest review
If you are looking for a bloody, gory read, this is the one for you. It is set in the old west right after the civil war. I was expecting the usual carpet bagger/land owner type feuds. Boy, did I get a surprise. This book goes from Mexico up into the United States and leaves a path of murder and mayhem along the way. This book is full of unwarranted violence and just downright craziness. The book actually lives up to the title.
On a side note, there was something I was not expecting in this book. I knew it was going to be bloody and gory, can't read the title and not know that. We actually had an army of the undead. Some of which were historical figures. That was definitely a different twist. There was also a murder for hire plot and backstabbing traitors. The book definitely delivered in the rough and gory department. I did not however care for the very end of the book.
There was a mystery person brought in at the end that was an interesting fellow. His identity was kept from the reader until the very last. I felt like that part was a little bit rushed. Other than that, if you want to get your gross on, read this book, it is a bloody mary mess.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
I will say there are a few negatives. The writing can be a bit awkward at times, and the paragraphs are set up a little differently than most.Also, in some paragraphs the dialogue isn't separated which made it difficult to follow. It was a bit slow to start, but once it got going, it kept going. This is a nice ode to the spaghetti western, and if you are a fan of the Weird Western genre you should check this one out.
I received this book gratis, the review was written by my choice.
