Booklist Review: "Book two in McCammon's highly entertaining vampire-western series finds reluctant vampire Trevor Lawson and his human sidekick, sharpshooter Ann Remington, still on the hunt for LaRouge, the woman who turned Lawson during the Civil War, in the hopes that killing her will allow Lawson to become human again. It's now 1886, and a new job takes the pair from New Orleans to the frontier town of Perdition, Montana, to rescue a wealthy young man from a band of outlaws. Lawson tries to extricate the man without violence, but between the outlaws and the vampire Dark Society, it appears a peaceful getaway is not going to be an option. This thrilling story culminates with a fantastic battle scene on a train, where unlikely alliances are formed, adding a new wrinkle to Lawson's quest for freedom from his vampiric curse. Readers can jump right in, as the backstory details are supplied without sacrificing the pace. This is perfect for Deadwood fans and those who enjoy the American Vampire graphic-novel series by Scott Snyder. Clear a couple of hours, you'll want to devour this in one sitting.--Spratford, Becky Copyright 2016 Booklist"
