Book Review: Branches & Bone by C.R. Langille


Title: Branches & Bone
Autor: C.R. Langille
Genre: Fantasy; Horror; Western
Publication Date: October 17, 2023

Rituals, crazed cultists, and something in the woods…

Pinkerton Evelyn Horn has seen her fair share of the weird and dark. But when she arrives in the Utah Territories to investigate the disappearance of fellow Pinkerton and friend, she finds herself facing something even more sinister.

Strange occult rites, crazed cultists, and ancient prophecies all point to something dark and malevolent lurking in the shadows. Evelyn must use all her skills and experience to survive the horrors that await her in the mountains.

Hello Fellow Readers,

First of all, Evelyn is a BMF. I had hoped going into this she would be and after reading Branches & Bone it only cemented that fact. Secondly, the mixing of Fantasy, Horror, and Western may be one of my favorite blending of genres. They just seem to go so well together, or it could be that Langillejust knows what they are doing. Either way, I must get my hands on more. 

Evelyn goes through so much, from the very first story to the final chapter you can't help but root for her. I do wish the book was longer, or maybe we can get a prequel detailing Evelyn's life before the events of Branches & Bone where we see how she becomes a Pinkerton and more of her relationship with Raymond. The Ending does make me excited to see what happens in this world that Langille has created and to see what happens with Theresa. 

Overall, a fast-paced story for those who love BAMF characters.
