Overview

Mankind has fought the war against ghouls of all kinds since the beginning of time. The last stronghold of evil in the known world is the American frontier, but for how long? Bounty hunter Uriah Zane and US marshal Aubrey Coffin are humanity's last hope to rid the world, once and for all, of this demon scourge...

The Hell's Angels are a gang of werewolves who have escaped from Hellsgarde Federal Penitentiary. Originally they were recruited out of eastern Europe by Abraham Lincoln to mercilessly tear the Confederates into submission at Gettysburg, thus ending the Civil War. But the Hell's Angels never returned home. They headed west-to join the legions of other ghouls...

Armed with an arsenal of weapons, the deadliest being Marshal Aubrey Coffin, notorious ghoul-hunter Uriah Zane must stop the hordes of shape- shifting creatures pushing west. Aided by a beautiful Mexican witch and necromancer, werebeasts are searching the deserts for a coveted key, a key that could give the ghouls everlasting life and final dominion over the earth-with humans as their servants.

But first they must face the wrath of Zane, a man who understands better than most the twisted soul of the wolves....

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Brandvold (Bullets over Bedlam) imagines an alternate America where Abraham Lincoln brought powerful werewolves and vampires from Europe in order to win the Civil War. Now, with the Union saved, these unholy creatures have begun to run rampant on the frontier. The lead shape-changer, Charlie Hondo, has been sprung from prison and is allied with a dragon-riding witch in his attempt to take over the west’s open spaces. Only bounty hunter Uriah Zane and deputy marshal Angel Coffin dare try to stop him. The battles between Zane and Coffin’s forces and the creatures are suitably bloody, even if the overall outcome for any given battle is obvious. The American West is more of a backdrop than a setting, and while the affected dialogue might pass for witty banter in a spaghetti Western, it falls flat on the page. (Jan.)
