Publisher's Summary

Six-guns versus werewolves in the Old West!
They're hired guns. The best at what they do. They've left bodies in their wake across the West. But this job is different. It'll take all their skill and courage. And very special bullets. Because their targets this time won't be shooting back. They'll fight back with ripping claws, tearing fangs, and animal cunning. They're werewolves.
A pack of bloodthirsty wolfmen has taken over a small Mexican village, and the gunmen are the villagers' last hope. The light of the full moon will reveal the deadliest showdown the West has ever seen - three men with six-shooters facing off against snarling, inhuman monsters.

This book rocked!!

This book was seriously awesome!! I wasn't sure what to expect with a western werewolf book, but I didn't expect to love it as much as I did.

When Tucker, Bodie and Fix are approached by a peasant man and asked for help in getting rid of a gang, they think it will be easy. The man explains that this gang has taken over their town and they need help in getting rid of them. He tells them that the town will repay them in all the silver the church holds. The boys decide that they will go check it out. The man tells them that they will need special bullets for this gang as they are werewolves. The men laugh at this! Who does he think they are to fall for this? On the way to the village, they find out that the man is in fact a woman and that maybe she isn't lying to them!

I have to say that I loved our unlikely heroes! The 3 amigos are on the run from the federales and think, what better way to make a lot of money quickly than to go along with the peasant but take the silver anyway. They are bad but have good hearts (well kinda anyway ;) )

The werewolves in this are merciless, even when not in wolf form. They steal, rape and pretty much do what they want when they are humans and do much worse as wolves.

The plot was relatively fast paced. We do have a section where the boys are crossing the dessert that's slower than the rest but overall, the action is constant. It really ramps up when they come to the village!! It's intense, nail biting and bloody. I was hooked from the first page and listened to it over the course of 2 days. I basically only took out the headphones at night!

In all, an absolutely addicting listen. The action is non stop, the werewolves are brutal, the heroes are flawed and the book is brilliant! A must read!!

Timothy McKean was amazing. He did a great job with each character and the different accents and his pacing was perfect.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

The Really Wild Wild West

This is an edge of your saddle tale of horror and gritty southwestern charm. Gunslingers versus werewolves. Flawed heroes versus vile men. It's not deep and is fairly predicable but I enjoyed it. One small criticism and it’s a pet peeve of mine: If you’re doing any kind of historical fiction, do not use current idioms. Unless you’re writing parody, it’s distracting. “See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya?” I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that was not a saying in use in the late 1800s. The other thing I will say is that the language is salty and there is more than one sexual assault-- so definitely not for the young’uns.
