Do you like vampires? Do you like werewolves? How about zombis? What about Westerns?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then The Dramos Saga is for you!
If you are looking for something different to read this weekend, then I highly suggest The Dramos Saga - a series of stand-alone short stories - each one leading into the other, yet able to be read individually. (Trust me though, you will want to read the saga straight through!) Here is my review:
Genre - Horror/Western
Year Published - 2017
Length - 233 (digital) pages
Written by Franklin E. Wales
Rating: 5+ Skulls
They slaughtered his village in a frenzy of bloodlust and cruelty.
He followed them to America, vowing vengeance.
His name brings fear to the Undead, for they know of his wrath.
His name is Dramos and this is his Saga.
Seven Adventures, One Saga.
13 STEPS: Thirteen steps up the gallows to the hangman’s noose.
FUNERAL COACH: A coachman chained to the seat of a traveling funeral coach.
PICKIN' TO BEAT THE DEVIL: An Irishman with a banjo has learned the secrets of the undead.
RENEGADE: Two widows slaughtered. The town blames wolves. The facts say otherwise.
VAMPIRE'S GOLD: A locomotive loaded down with gold, hired guns and something very old screams through the night.
THE VAMPIRE KING: A Vampire King must face the most formidable opponent in its centuries of existence.
BLACK WATER: A dead town by day, an undead town by night.
I have waited 5 long years for this saga to be completed, and the wait has been paid off tenfold! This book is exceptional! One of those books that you don't want to end! (which is a good thing, especially since when you think this one might be ending, it continues.)
The story opens with Dramos at the gallows, preparing to be hung. 13 Steps up to the hangman's noose - one step for each day leading up to this point.
You may guess what lies within the Funeral Coach, but I guarantee this tale will still surprise you!
In Pickin' to Beat the Devil, you will be introduced to one of my favorite characters in the saga - an Irish vampire hunter who has discovered a unique talent.
Renegade introduces another great character - Injun' Joe (and his sister Mary).
Vampire's Gold - the action plays out like a movie in your head! (You may have heard me say this before, but I feel that Robert Rodriguez would be the perfect director to bring this saga to the big screen - it would be amazing! - one of my dreams!)
The Vampire King is pretty much self-explanatory and Black Water is about a mysterious ghost town.
All of these stories are perfectly linked to tell Dramos' story. (each story, individually, receives 5 Skulls) This is a saga that should not be missed!
(note: the covers shown of #1 and #2 are off-colored only because I started this in the evening, when the blue-light filter was off on my phone. I then finished the rest the next day, which is how all of the covers look)
