Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising officially went on sale today, and so far, so good.
As I write this, it's #1 in its category on Amazon.com (beating out western writing legend Louis L'Amour!).
So far, I've seen two reviews, both of which were favorable. Here are the conclusions; follow the links to read the full reviews.
The characters and storyline are immaculate and help you delve deeper into the Deadlands where gunfighters and mad scientists go hand-in-hand. There are supernatural forces at work that have both lawmen and outlaws facing creatures that are neither human or animal in one of the weirdest westerns of all time.
In the end, Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising is a great book that can not only be enjoyed by tabletop gamers but also fans of steampunk, science fiction and history. The author does an immaculate job of creating a world that fans of Deadlands can truly explore and enjoy.
Although this is quite long, it felt much shorter. I enjoy Old West fantasies and Mariotte spins a fine tale with equal parts adventure and suspense.
Sending a new book out into the world is a hard, scary thing. I'm gratified that this one seems to be getting a good reception.
