I liked it and was disappointed at the same time. I was looking for a supernatural western to read when this series popped up. We are given ex-Union soldier and now gun-slinger, Ronan Lynch, who is hired, along with others, to find a man’s son who has disappeared to join a church-cult run by a suspected witch.
Ronan is killed only to reappear out of nowhere at the conclusion of the story with no explanation. The final line being: “to be continued.” Yes, it is a hook to buy the next in the series but I feel cheated in a way. I know nothing more about how Ronan becomes the feared supernatural bounty hunter badass he was advertised to be. I signed up expecting to find out this guy’s origin, and if I like what I read to continue on with his further adventures. What I get his Ronan getting killed off before anything even remotely “supernatural” happens. The bulk of the story continues about his companions on a grand adventure where they eventually find the son and take down the witch.
I signed on to read about Ronan so I feel a bit cheated by having to buy another installment to find out what happened to him and how he returned from the dead.
All supernatural aspects aside, the story is well written with interesting characters—just not enough about one particular character.
