Publisher's Summary

"Levi Adams isn't good in social settings, but he's great at killing things. A dark tale of vengeance and redemption (with a healthy dose of ass kicking), James Hunter's MudMan is a knockdown beat-'em-up that doesn't pull any punches." (Domino Finn, author of the Black Magic Outlaw series)
Levi Adams is a soft-spoken middle-aged Mennonite man - at least he tries to be when he's not murdering people.
Levi's a golem, a mudman, crafted from the muck, mire, and corpses of a World War II concentration camp. Killing is just a part of his DNA. He doesn't like it, but unfortunately he's been saddled with a divine commission to dole out judgment on those who shed innocent blood. After 70 years as a cold-blooded murder machine, however, Levi's trying to change his grisly nature. And the AA meetings and church services are helping. A little. But when he runs across a wounded girl, Sally Ryder, during one of his hunting expeditions, he realizes self-help may have to go on the back burner.
Someone is attempting to revive a pre-Babylonian murder god, and the road to rebirth is paved with dead bodies. Lots and lots of them. Now Levi must protect Ryder - the key to an unspeakable resurrection - and defeat a Nazi mage from Levi's murky past. But the shadowy mage holds a terrible secret about the mudman's unorthodox birth, one offering insight into Levi's morbid compulsion for bloodshed. It's a secret Levi would pay anything to uncover - maybe even Ryder's life. If Levi isn't careful, he may end up turning into the monster he always imagined himself to be.

Wasn't sure if I'd like this, but I did!

If you could sum up MudMan in three words, what would they be?

Imaginative, Compelling, Violent


Any additional comments?

I thought this would be too violent for me, but thought I'd take the chance since I really like everything else I've read from James Hunter. I'm glad I did, the story was great, performance was great, and it was really imaginative.

Lots of bible - some cliche

Bads
I'm not of religion, so the frequent religious references and texts were a bit annoying (I honestly didn't read the summary before getting started). The characters all exhibited some fairly cliche attributes for their types, but the character arch for MudMan was decent. There was an expo dump about 4 hours from completion that I felt could've gone more elegantly.

Goods
The action was all great
Main character development was good (side characters could've had a little more, or at least the supporting character could've.)
Some of the mythos was really cool
Armen's performance is always awesome, he had a good range for everything
