Cold as Hell (Black Badge)

We rated this book:


In life, James Crowley was an outlaw. A bank-robbing, train-heisting, murdering outlaw. He was not a very good guy. After his own murder, he was brought back to life to serve a higher power. Now controlled by his angelic handler Shargrafein, he is sent to battle against witches, werewolves, demons, and monsters. Armed with Peacemakers loaded with silver bullets, Crowley is no marshal, nor is he a bounty hunter. He is a Black Badge, and he works for the White Thrown. His job is to bring hell’s evil to justice.

Rhett C. Bruno and Jaimie Castle once again team up to produce another exciting series. Cold as Hell is the first book in the Black Badge series of novels. When Bruno and Castle work together, the results are otherworldly. This new project is an action-packed Western fantasy that can best be described as Sandman Slim meets Josey Wales.

With a seriously flawed protagonist and antagonists that run the gamut of evil, this character-driven thriller has a strong Bruno anti-hero feel to it. Bruno excels at integrating everyday faults and weaknesses into a hero who is easy to root for. The West has never been wilder and now it’s Cold as Hell.
