I loved this book. Normally I am not one for zombies but I do love a good western. So I thought I'd take a chance and boy am I glad I did. As main characters Karen and Mad Dog are great seperate and together. The story is paced really well, giving you hints as to Mad Dog's past, and keeping the story moving. It also balances the suspense and the all out action fantastically. The end in particular leaves you on the edge of your seat. Can't wait to read the other two books in this trilogy, Tartarus and Sheol.

Jason Brant did not disappoint. Gehenna is a book like no other I have ever read. Zombies, prostitutes, and cowboys in the old west…who would have thought of that? Well, apparently Jason did, and boy did he do it well. This book grabs you from the very first page. The characters are well thought out, the ride wild, and the losing your lunch optional, though I almost lost mine. The very beginning starts off like so many historical romances, believe it or not. The first few pages leave you totally unprepared for what is only a few pages away. The main character, Karen, is introduced as a smart prostitute in a brothel. The brothel owner, Ellis, is berating her for scaring off customers. He tells her, “You got to be the worst hooker I ever had” as well as, “I knew I should have taken those books away from you. Women got no place learnin’ from those things. Nothin’ good comes from it.” You can tell it is all bluster because he treats his girls well, and has a soft spot for Karen. He was actually one of my favorite characters. I love Karen. She is just my type of girl. She is smart, knows what she wants and will do anything to get what she wants. She does not believe that she has to have a man to survive. She is her own person and she is one of those girls that kick butt. Most of the characters are introduced in the first few pages and then the excitement starts with screams heard from the street. You know that this is not just some historical romance from then on out. The people in the saloon notice that there are two people eating a woman outside. These people are not just ordinary men as they both had multiple arrows sticking out of their bodies and of course, they are EATING a woman! Right after that, another main character is introduced. He is ‘Mad Dog’ McCall, an outlaw that is in jail. In this part of the book you realize that guns are outlawed in Gehenna and by then you are really glad you don’t live there. McCall is a great mix of outlaw/hero. There are also many biblical aspects of this book, but it was like no part of the bible that was ever pointed out to me. I will give you one clue: Leviticus 26:28. You will never think about zombies again in the same way, I promise you that. I do not want to spoil the whole book but I am going to point out a few things. In the old west, there were no such things as zombies, so in this book they have no idea what in the hell is going on. They have no guns and are totally unprepared for these ‘Moaners’ that are eating and changing everyone. The scenes are so realistic that you will literally shudder with horror when you read them. I have never read such a graphic book, nor have I ever read one that I had to put down while I was eating like I did with this one. The twists and turns are astonishing. Jason makes you think about the book long after you are done. The ending is like no other. I could not believe it was over with the twist that was just thrown out there at the very end. I am hoping for a sequel or this book is going to haunt me forever. It is just that kind of book. All in all, this book is a non-stop, action packed adventure. It is a must read.

Loved this book.   When I bought this book I thought, ‘A Western, that’s cool’.  It reminded me of the Louis L’Amour westerns my father used to have lying around the house when I was growing up. As is fairly typical of a western, a stranger rides into town, he looks like trouble and everyone walks around him or crosses the street, no one makes eye contact ………. sounds familiar, but that is where the similarity to a Louis L’Amour western ends. McCall the outlaw and Karen the prostitute, both have to face certain death from all sides, and only their determination, fear and pissed off attitude can save them as they fight to escape the town that has been overrun with cannibalistic hoards of zombies. They eventually manage to flee the town with the hoards on their heels.  They make it to safety  ……………….. oh yes, this is Jason Brant – nothing is that simple.   Could not wait to start book 2 - Tartarus.
