Review: The Ghost of Apache Creek

User Review  - Sara - Goodreads

Absolutely wretched writing. All characters are one dimensional, plot is only mildly interesting, and frankly the story is boring and predictable. However, there are zombies. I'll give a whole extra star just for that. Read full review

Review: The Ghost of Apache Creek

User Review  - Leo - Goodreads

Everyone in the town of Apache Creek died of cholera and the marshal was the only one left. The town had been renamed REQIEM. The marshal held his ground and saw six gunfighters die of cholera after they drank water from the well. Good western. Kept me going. Read full review
