Review of ‘Hallowed Ground’

Posted on Updated on

Provender Creed is something of a renegade and outlaw. He lives in the town of Rookwood, a place that doesn’t cotton much to strangers, but he keeps pretty much to himself. Then, a strange group, led by The Deacon, sets up a tent city near town at the mouth of Dead Man’s Gulch, and life changes for everyone—but most importantly, life changes for Creed.

Rookwood was strange before the strangers came, but with them came death and the Devil. Hallowed Ground by Steven Savile and David Niall Wilson is not your typical western. In fact, it’s not your typical story of any genre, containing as it does a bit of everything.

Tight, eerie writing, characters you’d expect to encounter in nightmares, and goings-on that will chill you to your marrow. The Old West was never like this—or was it? Five stars for this story.
