“The history of the Old West written in blood and laced with dark humor, all set against a backdrop of ancient evil and a struggle for survival….You're in for the ride of your life.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil ColonyAlready a New York Times bestselling author for his satiric, gore-soaked “songbooks” (It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Zombies; Every Zombie Eats Somebody Sometime), author Michael P. Spradlin now dons a different hat and gallops hell for leather into a darker, wilder West. Blood Riders is the story of Civil War veteran Jonas R. Hollister, who's recruited by the U.S. government to hunt down and destroy an ancient tribe of vampires that is terrorizing the frontier territories. An ingenious mash-up of western and dark fantasy—with an intriguing touch of American steampunk weaponry thrown in for good measure—Spradlin's Blood Riders has Hollister joining up with real-life historical figures Samuel Colt and Alan Pinkerton and one of horror literature's most famous monster hunters (Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker's Dracula) to rid the West of the undead scourge once and for all.
