Book Review: Melinda West: Monster Gunslinger by KC Grifant

Title: Melinda West: Monster Gunslinger
Author: KC Grifant
Genre: FantasyWestern
Publication Date: February 2, 2023

In an Old West overrun by monsters, a stoic gunslinger must embark on a dangerous quest to save her friends and stop a supernatural war.

Sharpshooter Melinda West, 29, has encountered more than her share of supernatural creatures after a monster infection killed her mother. Now, Melinda and her charismatic partner, Lance, offer their exterminating services to desperate towns, fighting everything from giant flying scorpions to psychic bugs. But when they accidentally release a demon, they must track a dangerous outlaw across treacherous lands and battle a menagerie of creatures—all before an army of soul-devouring monsters descend on Earth.

The Witcher meets Bonnie and Clyde in a re-imagined Old West full of diverse characters, desolate landscapes, and fast-paced adventure.

Hello Fellow Readers,

I am so happy that Monster Westerns are a thing because they make for such fun reads, and Melinda West: Monster Gunslinger is no different. Action packed, Grifant made a extremely interesting world, with such terrifying monsters that I am so happy I got to explore through reading. I really liked Melinda, and also Lance before *spoiler* happens and he begins to act like a jackass. Melinda was badass and an amazing shot who doesn't miss. 

The book was fast paced, which I appreciate and made for a quick read. The one thing I didn't like was all the bad luck/ and their inability to catch a break. Things just went from bad to worse to even worse to Oh My God they need a freaking miracle. It was just too many hits to take without any wins. You need to insert one somewhere so that the readers don't feel so hopeless. 

Regardless of my personal feelings I really enjoyed this book.
