This, the second in the series "Heaven's Gate" series, follows after "The Good, The Bad, and The Infernal" in the story line. I'd recommend the earlier title first, but it's unlikely that you actually need to read №1 prior to this. You'll thank me for the fact you've read the earlier one, but not because this makes more sense as a result; simply because you've had a good time reading the earlier title.

If you've never seen a western, you'll still recognise the 'tropes' of the category. If you've been sat down and watched all the Spaghetti Western films to someone's hand whilst tied to a chair and had the words "bloody hell, look at that; isn't it beautiful that landscape?" yelled in your ear every eighteen seconds, you'll appreciate the care and attention that the author has put into this. If you love the entire output of John Ford, Sergio Leone, and possibly Akira Kurosawa, then you'll probably create a temple to Guy Adams in your garden, as the skill everything is fitted together is like looking at a parquet floor created by a master craftsmen, so flawless is the fitting of the pieces one to another.

If the notion of a steampunk / western / horror / speculative fiction / fantasy adaptation of Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy" intrigues you, then read this and be entertained. If the idea makes you think "well, that'll be a lot of work," then read this and be entertained.

Look, just read this, okay? Seriously. ( )
