Devils Unto Dust Reviews
But I know better than that; this desert may have my heart, but this town will take my bones.
This is a tough book to review because 1. I just read another YA zombie book that ventures into western territory also set within the same decade (1877), albeit different in concept but reading these close together made it hard for this one to feel quite as fresh. 2. I predicted the biggest twist in the novel the second it happened which severely affected the pacing. I did, however, manage to trek thro ...more
Absolutely gripping and deliciously, vividly creepy, with a sense of time and place you can practically taste and writing that gallops - I read it in one sitting and wanted to cheer. Knocks it right out of the park. Give me the movie (AND SEQUELS) now please!!
I love a zombie western, it is quickly becoming my favorite subgenre within the zombie world. The western has taken a fabulous turn over the past few years, alright, a few decades if I go back to the Unforgiven.

I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

Such a great book - I really enjoyed reading it, it was gripping and incredibly well written! Devils Unto Dust struck the perfect balance of YA and Western for me, and absolutely captured that good gritty feeling that I want when reading about West Texas.
I was lucky to pick this book up just in the right moment, coming off of a massive Fallout binge.
DEVILS UNTO DUST is a western with zombies and it reads just exactly like you think something like this would read. It's atmospheric, character-driven, and utterly devastatingly sad. The apocalyptic landscape filled contiminated people who turned into zombies after a plague, is so so devastating to read about.
Paired with very emotion-heavy writing and a terribly sad backstory for the main character ...more
Couldn’t put it down
