Review; The Night Silver River Run Red by Christine Morgan

A few months ago I read the splatter western The Night Silver River Run Red by Christine Morgan and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Some things, according to Cody McCall, are worth risking a whipping. Such as, sneaking out with your friends after dark for a peek at the traveling show setting up just outside of town. Oddities, the signs promise. Marvels. Grotesqueries. Exotic attractions and mysterious magics.

Not as if they'd be allowed to attend otherwise, not with parents and preacher and schoolmarm all disapproving. But how often does a chance like this come along? There isn't much else by way of excitement in quiet, peaceful Silver River, a once-prosperous boom town slowly gone bust.

Worth risking a whipping, sure. Worth risking life and limb, and maybe more? Worth risking being ripped to pieces by ravenous, inhuman brutes? Worth crossing paths with those strange, silent cult-folk from the high valley? Worth all the fire and bloodshed and horror and death?

Because something far worse than any ordinary traveling show has come to town, and one thing is for certain: those who survive, if any, will never forget The Night Silver River Run Red.

My Thoughts on the Book
The Night Silver River Run Red is one of those fast-paced and engaging books filled with blood, guts and gore. Narrated through multiple POV's, one meets a wildly entertaining cast of characters and some great dialogue.

This book may not be for everyone, but it's a fun read.
