    A great heroine, zombies, and the Old West!

    A scrawny yet spunky heroine, zombies, and a good ol’ western standoff fill the pages of Christine Rains’ L’IL GAL AL AND THE ZOMBIES OF AMARILLO.

    After leading a group of travelers safely to Amarillo, Alma Sweeney is ready to mosey on out of town for the next job. But when she stops a drunk man with a shotgun, the sheriff wants to make her his new deputy. She declines the offer, but she is willing to stick around—for a day or two. Yet not all is well in Amarillo. They need L’il Gal Al’s help, but for once, the danger might be too great for this feisty frontier lady.

    L’IL GAL AL AND THE ZOMBIES OF AMARILLO throws the reader back into the Old West. The characters are well written, especially Alma Sweeney. Rains excels in creating strong female characters. I don’t think I’ve ever read anyone like Alma, but she quickly wins the reader over. She’s quick, intelligent, strong-minded, and spunky. Her strong-will and no-nonsense attitude almost become a detriment when faced with the supernatural. The plot is fast-paced like novelettes should be. The zombies are delightfully gruesome, and Rains had me guessing until almost the very end on what was causing the zombies to rise from the dead. The writing style suits shorter fiction and horror very well, and I love how the dialogue gives a hint of the period without going overboard.

    Take a bite out of L’IL GAL AL AND THE ZOMBIES OF AMARILLO by Christine Rains, a wonderful horror story set in the Old West. I’d love to see more of Alma Sweeney and her adventures.
