STARVING REVIEWER’S NOTE: Mr. McCall had the misfortune of his previous publisher imprint closing up shop. However, he has already been picked up by another, so South should be available through Amazon and other outlets again shortly. I will update the links when that happens.
If you’ve been hanging around the Starving Review kitchens, then you know by now that I love a good Western. Of course, the emphasis needs to be on the ‘good’ part. As a fan of the genre, I am obviously most sensitive to amateur chefs who burn the bottom, sour the filling, and generally botch up the recipe. From first bite, South of Rising Sun seems to be as pure of a Western genre recipe as possible, but does it live up to standards or do we have another cake dropped on the kitchen floor?
Before we find out, let us review the code of the Starving Reviewer:
- I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the genre
- I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible
