COLD AS HELL is performed in audio by award-winning actor and voice actor Roger Clark, who portrays Arthur Morgan in Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2.
In the West, there are worse things to fear than bandits and outlaws.
Demons. Monsters. Witches. James Crowley’s sacred duty as a Black Badge is to hunt them down and send them packing, banish them from the mortal realm for good.
He didn’t choose this life. No. He didn’t choose life at all.
Shot dead in a gunfight many years ago, now he’s stuck in purgatory, serving the whims of the White Throne to avoid falling to Hell. Not quite undead, though not alive either, the best he can hope for is to work off his penance and fade away.
This time, the White Throne has sent him to investigate a strange bank robbery in Lonely Hill. An outlaw with the ability to conjure ice has frozen and shattered open the bank vault and is now on a spree, robbing the region for all it’s worth.
In his quest to track down the ice-wielder and suss out which demon is behind granting a mortal such power, Crowley finds himself face-to-face with hellish beasts, shapeshifters, and, worse … temptation. But the truth behind the attacks is worse than he ever imagined …
The Witcher meets The Dresden Files in this weird Western series by the Audible number-one bestselling duo behind Dead Acre.
“Gunslingers and demons, shootouts and monsters, cowboys and the supernatural—Cold as Hell is an imaginative, fun, and exciting novel.”
-Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Dune: House Atreides
“Bruno and Castle…kick off a new collaboration in impressive style; their fantasy-western series debut blends its two genres perfectly and offers enough worldbuilding to sustain many sequels…A gritty romp sure to please fans of Jim Butcher and Mike Carey.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The rich mystical elements feel every bit as authentic to the west as the gunslinging and grit, all of which deftly bring the characters and setting to life.”
-Shirtaloon, Top 10 Amazon charts bestselling author of He Who Fights with Monsters
“A badass supernatural western…It’s like the Witcher goes to Tombstone.”
-Larry Correia, New York Times bestselling author of Monster Hunter International
“Undead cowboy ronin delivering the Lord’s justice in the Old West? Cold as Hell snared me like a lasso and never let go.”
-Scott Sigler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Earthcore
“A weird Western starring a taciturn lone gunman who will remind readers of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Geralt of Rivia.”
“A weird and wild twist on the Old West that mashes gunslingers, divine intervention, and the supernatural into one hell of a story. Highly recommended!”
-Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Kagen the Damned
“Cold as Hell? More like fun as hell. Take an undead outlaw hero, match him villains of the most devilish kind, and string it all together with a plot that has more twists and turns than a hangman’s noose. Westerns don’t get any weirder than this.”
-Matt Forbeck, New York Times bestselling author
