Brilliant Dark Western
Hallowed Ground is a clever Dark Fiction take on a Western that simply crackles with supernatural energy and bristles with Frontier spirit. This is a time when Faith was strong, Whiskey was plentiful, morals kept communities together and wrongdoers found themselves face down in the nearest gulch with snakes for company.Was this review helpful?

When The Deacon - a mysterious preacher with malevolent intent - sets up camp near Rookwood with his motley crew of rescued, deformed souls, trouble visits the small town. He hurtles towards his dark destiny that seeks to devour the whole Town for his own ends.
For Provender Creed, a simple but thoughtful man, things will never be the same. He alone can see through the spell cast upon his fellow townspeople, and it leads him to his own destiny.
For Mariah - reborn from the ashes of a deal with the Devil - the journey to discover who she is, was and will be begins.
Set against this are a colourful array of characters - a gifted dwarf artist, the very first scorned woman and her demonic henchmen, a trio of cackling witches, a lonely women bereft of the gift of child, a fast-shooting Sheriff who smells trouble, an eight-fingered piano player, and the powerful and relentless Balthazar.
With snappy action, plenty of preaching, several astounding miracles, and more than a splash of the battles of the divine - Hallowed Ground brings the varied talents of these two writers together to create a masterful tale that will keep you gripped right to its impressively epic conclusion
