Weird Westerns July 11 2012
By L. Tolbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love weird westerns and this is definately one of the strangest ones I have ever read. Old Gods, New Gods, Tricksters, The Mexican Cavalry, The United States Gov't, Witchcraft, flying cities, the Mayan Underworld and spiders the size of ponies all get thrown into the mix. This is truly one of the most imaginative books I've read this year and will be re-reading in the next few.

I can't really talk about the plot without giving away some major spoilers, but it is more than just a horror story. It is densely written, layered with meaning and the entire trilogy is handsomely resolved at the end and leaves room for the author to continue writing more stories set in this universe (and I hope she does.)

The reason it only gets 4 stars is it really slows down in middle of the third book as we spend far too much time waiting with some of the characters for the protagonist to get a move on. I actually liked the guy, but he is not the brightest character and I kept wishing he would just hurry up so I could get to the main blow-out at the end.

Also, for those of you not in the know, this trilogy does contain a m/m love story, more or less.

Those of you looking for a unique, dark (and it is very dark) and compelling romance may want to check this out.
Excellent wrapup for series Dec 18 2013

Trigger Warnings for Book 3: killing, human sacrifice, bullying, non PC language

My Thoughts on Book 3: This really is a most satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. Watching Chess's evolution has been quite amazing, and I've also quite enjoyed seeing how Yancey and Ed and Songbird all grew and changed through the course of the trilogy.

These books are very LGBTQ oriented, with a number of characters from the QUILTBAG included, as well as the inherent hostility toward them of the time. Still, it was refreshing to see a piece set during the late 19th century that was open and honest about the existence of all types.

Ultimately there is not a lot I can say here without there ending up with spoilers, so I'll just say that I really did enjoy this book—this whole trilogy—quite a lot. Watch for my review of the omnibus, which also includes a bonus short story.

Book 3: A Tree of Bones

Disclosure: I received a copy of the omnibus from ChiZine in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis: New Mexico, 1867: Months have passed since hexslinger Chess Pargeter sacrificed himself to restore the town of Bewelcome, once cursed to salt by his former lover, "Reverend" Asher Rook. Now a coalition led by Allan Pinkerton's Detective Agency lays siege to reborn Mayan goddess Ixchel's notorious "Hex City," the one place on earth where hexes can act in concert, and the desert just outside Bewelcome has become the front line in what threatens to become a new Civil War—one in which wild magic and black science clash headlong, producing carnage like nothing the world has ever seen!
An amazing trilogy May 10 2013
By aviv shener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What an amazing story!
Just finished it. The first one was ok, but had a lot of problems. The second one was much better. The third one was fantastic in every way.
The characters were so well developed, the plot so original and exiting. Not to mention the writing, which was just beautiful.

This was a crazy trilogy, with a lot of violence and hard moments, but it was so very worth it.
