It had a bit of everything I like in a book: romance, adventure, cowboys...and I kinda like zombie books, too (though they have to have a bit of romance in them as well). It didn't shirk on the horror details either with some rather creepy scenes involving one family.
I really liked Trace/Cowboy and Elisabeth/Red. They were both really great characters and I have to say that Cowboy seemed like the ideal guy to meet in a wild west zombie apocalypse. As for Red, she was pretty kick-arse. The secondary characters were cool too.
I'm very intrigued as to what will happen next in the series and can't wait to read the second book in the series.
You see, the blurb led me to believe that the heroine, Red, was a strong, kick-ass, take charge kind of girl. And she was in the beginning, right up until the point at which she started to fall in love. After that, she became progressively weaker, more often confused, more frequently in need of care, less capable of defending herself, drastically more easily moved to tears, more willing to be told what to do as opposed to instruct others and much more likely to make stupid, ill-thought out, life threatening decision based on misinformation and jumped to conclusions that could have been avoided with a mere conversation. She basically became a weepy, Too-Stupid-To-Live girl in love. Why does this happen so often in YA/NA literature?
Now some readers might read this book and think, 'awww, she found a good man to take care of her, how sweet.' Me? I read it and wonder where the girl who'd been taking care of herself went. I was MUCH more interested in her than the damsel in distress who was lucky enough to attract Trace's affection and protection.
The book could have done with a bit more character development. I can forgive its lack of worldbuilding. Zombie novels don't really need that much to be understandable. But these characters were hollow paper cut outs, with very little depth. The whole thing also felt very anachronistic (if I can use that word to say present things seeped into the past, as opposed to the other way around). Dialogue and personal values felt far too modern, as did money.Read more ›
Trace is a cowboy, whose life is interrupted when a fiery red haired girl walks in the bar and shoots a zombie in front of everyone. Trace thinks she looks familiar and it isn't until he sees the wanted posters he finds out who she is. Trace follows Red looking out to turn her in at the next town but things don't go as planned. Trace gets closer and closer to Red until he finds out the truth about the reward and he vows to keep her safe from her past. Red allows him to know her secret but she doesn't need his company and she damn well shouldn't want it. They outrun zombies until they finally catch up.
At the start Red was an incredible Kick ass heroine who could master any gun. I loved how unique she was, her fiery hair that matched her I-don't-give-a-damn attitude. I loved her at the beginning. What I didn't like was how in the middle she becomes fragile, alas I understand the pain she is put through but it seems her strong will was turned off with a flick of a switch.Read more ›
The story follows Trace, a cowboy who mainly likes to keep to himself ever since the zombie-apocalypse began. He has never had a family so he doesn't usually depend on many people. One day, a beautiful girl with red hair called Red enters the saloon, and he is immediately drawn to her. Not for the reasons you think. But for something completely different. She was the girl that he has seen on Wanted posters with a hefty price on her head so he is determined to befriend her and then hand her over to the sheriff when they get to the nearest town. But with trying to survive the wave of zombie attacks laid upon them everyday, they meet new people. People who Trace never expected he'd care about. They become his family and he would do everything to protect them all, including Red.
Recently I have been getting really into the apocalyptic genre, but a zombie-apocalypse? AWESOME. I really, really love the whole concept of it. The world being taken over by a zombie race with very few survivors and the plague spreading quickly. I love how we see the world from Trace and Red's point of views because they are very different people. Red is the tough, head-strong, independent girl who doesn't trust anyone, not since her family died from the zombie attack.Read more ›

I love zombies, and I love this book, story line and characters are definitely worth reading about! 3 books in the series all together.Published on 20 April 2014 by Meggy
When I saw this book was a zombie western romance, I was a little bit wary. I love zombies, but romance isn't my thing and I don't think I've ever read a western in my life. Read morePublished on 5 Jan. 2013 by Kat

This was a well written zombie novel. It is a cross between "Tombstone" & "Night of the Living Dead." I anxiously await the second book. Read morePublished on 31 May 2012 by RR
