Armed with little more than steel and hatred, the old man embarks on a hopeless war against the devouring gods from beyond the stars and their agents on Earth. Leaving a trail of bullets and bodies from Oakland to Omaha, he battles witches, evangelical cannibals, Native shamans, and possessed lawmen.
His final stop: an accursed railroad town where the old man will make a final stand for his son's life against the first amongst the Devourers - the dark titan, Thurs.

I have always been fascinated by ancient mythologies, so this book definitely caught my interest. It takes place during what seems to be the end of the civil war. Emmett and his Native American mother were left at home while his father, a white man, was off fighting in the war. Emmett was 16 and his mother became deathly ill. Medicines and doctors couldn't heal her so Emmett decides to connect with his mother's father who is a shaman. Unfortunately, his grandfather is also dying and is not in his right mind. He offers Emmett a way to save his mother by contacting an ancient spirit. This is where the Native and Norse mythology comes into the story with ancient Gods, witches, giants, and other beings. Overall, it was a great story with a great narration. Jason Sprenger has the perfect voice for this story.

Fantastic dark fantasy set in the old west
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This was a really interesting and engaging dark fantasy set in the old west. I really liked the grit the story and the narration. The narrator did a great job of bringing the book to life. If you decide to check this book out, just keep in mind, this is a DARK fantasy and it gets pretty dark at times. If you are easily offended by language or intense imagery, you should probably not listen to this book. Otherwise, you should definitely go for it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
