A group of orphans bands together to fight a horde zombie outlaws.
Each of the orphans has their reason for revenge and decide if they
stick together, they will have a better chance of getting their revenge.
Blackwood's life changed when Bad Whiskey Nelson destroys Keech's home
by burning it down. After losing his home and his family, Keech will
have to rely on the lessons from Pa Abner to hunt down Bad Whiskey and
the powerful Char Stone. Together with the band of orphans, they will
stop at nothing to hunt down Bad Whiskey.
When I first
read the summary, I thought this was going to be a modern-day story.
Instead, the novel had a western feel to it. I was reminded of
Huckleberry Finn and adventures that he might take. The book was packed
with fast-paced action sprinkled with a few bits of humor. It has bits
of Osage culture weaved in along with supernatural threats. Any young
fan of western novels will enjoy this series.
