The Devoured And The Dead by Kristopher Rufty

Four families leave their homesteads in the dead winter of 1884 with the intentions of discovering greener pastures. As the wagon train enters scarcely populated and untraveled areas, the unnatural cold takes its toll on the explorers resulting in an unforeseen adversity, leaving the families stranded. What begins next is a dark descent into unimaginable and savage betrayal beyond belief.

Kristopher Rufty continues the tradition of Death’s Head Press Splatter Westerns with a incredibly disturbing contribution titled, The Devoured Of The Dead. Not only is the freezing season a perfect setting for a splatter novel but the opening sentence sets the pace with an immediate blood curdling bite that will leave the reader no where to go but to the next page.

Rufty has an uncommon approach of not only immediately pulling the reader into the story but securing that audience with vivid images of evil that dwell within his novel. The pace is fast and nonstop by means of cold blooded carnage and soul stealing savagery. His written words of fear have an odor of copper and leaves teeth marks on the soul.
This Splatter Western has enough of the good stuff…where victims last as long as a pint of whiskey in a five-handed poker game and villains are mean enough to steal a coin off a dead man’s eyes. One of my top reads of the year and a five star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Horror Bookworm Recommendation. Grab this one, you won’t regret it.
