I am enjoying this entire series. the characters are so likeable and innocent you can't help but root for them. this one was a little more blood and guts but not too much. the author paints a great picture without having to be to graphic.
Summoner of Souls is a Wild West horror story fast paced horror/western in the best of the pulp fiction "Weird West" tradition. With a madam, a school marm, a developmentally challenged sidekick and a preacher who is definitely NOT your run of the mill man of God, it's a page turner that will have you repeatedly saying "just one more chapter and I'll turn in for the night". Not that you'll be comfortable turning off the lights. This one is scary, not in a chainsaw slasher or gangs of desperadoes way, but with that vaguely uneasy, things that go bump in the night fashion that characterizes the best of greats like Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison and Steven King.
The Audible version is voiced by Jack Wallen whose lazy, western drawl provides a perfect counterpoint to the intensity of the plot action.
This is a good one - well worth your time.
