Review: Nunslinger Book 1

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Price: 99p ebook

Well this was MUCH MUCH shorter than I expected. Only 53 pages but there are a hell of a lot more of them to come from what I can gather so that is rather interesting indeed. It's like a serialisation of story or many a scenes from one nun's life. And what a life she will be leading if this is anything to go by.

The story isn't as brutal and epic as the cover implies which, I have to say, disappointed me a tad. I was ready for all out war and action and crazy shit to hit the fan. However, I do indeed enjoy a good western when it comes along and you don't get many of them these days. 

The Nun is pretty cool, she is a bit of an anti nun on occasion and I did indeed like that also. The dudes in the book and the play between good and evil is pretty decent and I enjoyed that also. It provided a little bit of tension and a small twist to this very concise bit of writing. 

I will delve in to book 2 indeed as I'm most intrigued to see what happens to this Bride of Christ next. If you want a read to fill only a short period of time that will keep you interested I thoroughly recommend this.

Happy Reading
