The first cattle drive of the season leaves Texas for Abilene, Kansas along the Chisholm Trail, but unforeseen terrors lay hidden in the natural beauty of the land. In the heart of Indian Territory lies the sleepy town of Duncan, a friendly respite from the dusty land. But something lurks in the untamed West - a powerful creature that hunts to satiate its horrifying hunger. The land will run red with blood, and only Karl Beck has a chance against this ancient evil.

My Review:

"Wiiiiiiiindeeeeeegoooooooo!"  Oh my little horror heart was so happy to see that this installation of the Splatter Western series was about this mythological creature. 

With quite a cast of characters, be careful as you follow the trail.  Jai-Li and Kenzie - well hello there ladies.  I loved these two strong women characters!  They also brought a lot of levity which was a lot of fun to read.  I absolutely love some humor thrown into any genre I pick up. 

Let's look over any errors within the pages and stay with the story itself - we get the Western and we get the Splatter!  Dare I say I expected, or rather wanted, MORE splatter? Quite frankly, I was rooting for the Wendigo the whole time - I mean, it's just hangry and I know that feeling. 😉  And Karl.  I mean, I can root for them both, right?

This series is proving to be SO much fun!  They can be read as standalones as they're all separate stories by different authors and I am looking forward to reading the next one!  From the opening scene to the last burial, we get a mixture of humor and horror painted onto a full on Western world where you can feel the grit of the dirt and the chill from the Wendigo.  You better watch yourself.
