You'll have to read this to find out! This book seems to have elements of everything. By that, I mean it has a western feel to it, along with some Norse mythology, Thurs, giants, Utgard, at one point there was a large tree- Yggdrasil? You might think that there is just too much going on, but somehow Curtis Lawson pulls it all together within the framework of a man trying to save his family.
I especially liked the characters of the old man, I'm not sure if he was ever named? At first, I liked Emmett, but his turn down a dark road changed that by the time it was all over. It took a while for everything to gel for me, because there was a lot going on, but when it did, I was impressed by the skills on display.
Lawson's knowledge of history and mythology is impressive. I was feeling slightly off balance due to all the different aspects of the tale, but I finally stopped worrying that I was missing something and just let the story sweep me along. And that it did, right up to the brick wall that is the denouement.
It was just the type of ending that I love! I listened to this book on audio, which was narrated by Jason Sprenger. I've never listened to his narrations before, but I thought he was excellent. His voicing of the different characters was very good, but his main voice was the BEST, reminding me of Sam Elliott at times. Overall, this book was just plain FUN! A mixed up combination of genres, mythology, American history and more, I can't think of another book or author, well, maybe Tim Curran? Curtis Lawson did so, and did it in spades. Highly recommended! This is it.

He also possesses an incredible grasp of language, laying down phrases like you wouldn't believe but yet, here they are on the page. Often I pause to savour a turn of phrase, or a description, before continuing. I wouldn't classify his cosmology as fully Lovecraftian he's far too clever to let his philosophy be limited but it is Lovecraftian enough to suit this aficionado, and his writings acknowledge that Beyond so far distant from the puny concerns and miniscule concepts of humans check out his collection BLACK PANTHEONS.

Aldrich, Devourer of Gods - Souls Lore
The author has crafted a story with fascinating characters and perfect pace. There is plenty of action and psychological struggles. There are two independent narratives that merge together and effectively integrate Indian legends and the reality of racial prejudices during that time periods.
The main characters are well built and a fully flawed. All of the dialogue rings true and the action is always believab The Devoured is a fun short novel combining the post Civil War West and The Elder Gods. All of the dialogue rings true and the action is always believable. I had a great time reading this story and highly recommend it. Though I hadn't read very much of Curtis M. Lawson's previous work, I will be looking out for more for sure. This is a fun and wild ride and full of some great scenes. It also has a great ending. Absolutely loved this book!!! Usually not the kind of book I would read but it grabbed me from the first page!!
This book is amazing and intriguingly unique at the same time, which is a difficult feat to pull off. Lawson manages to blend the intrigue of an old Western while mixing in the old gods as well as throwing in a good measure of Native American lore as well, cleverly linking them together.

So, I'm not rating this because my husband wrote it and I'm completely biased. I mean, obviously I think it's brilliant, and everyone should go buy multiple copies so that he can quit his day job. It should be out super soon, and if you're into cosmic horror, please do check it out! It's out now! View 1 comment. Desperately on the trail of his missing son, an old Confederate solider will stop at nothing to reunite the remnants of his family, even if he has to slay every trace of Utgard filth along the way.
Finding unexpected companionship in a young orphan, the gunslinger closes in on the god responsible - Thurs, he who hails beyond the stars. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to Curtis M. Lawson for giving me the opportunity. If I w Desperately on the trail of his missing son, an old Confederate solider will stop at nothing to reunite the remnants of his family, even if he has to slay every trace of Utgard filth along the way. If I wasn't so pessimistic about book to movie adaptations, I'd say this would make a brilliant film - in fact, I imagined it as such; Lawson's stunning use of words did wonders to create vivid imagery inside my head.
I found myself thoroughly impressed by the intelligent, highly attractive prose, and by how each scene seamlessly came together to tell an exciting yet ultimately tragic tale. Despite being a short novel of less than two hundred pages, it expressed itself with a lot more substance than other full-length books I've read. A part of me wishes it was longer, but I realise it may have lessened the overall impact. The character of the "old man" was probably the pinnacle; he was so utterly badass , and believe me when I say I don't use that term lightly.
Smart, skilled, and completely unapologetic about his paternal devotion - he's someone I won't forget anytime soon. I'm not saying he was a perfect man, far from it, but he owned every scene he was in. He was the sort of being that would draw an entire room to his entrance, and not just because of his suspiciously large size. Emmett, however, whilst starting out with good intentions, truly lost his way as he succumbed to the unsavoury power of Utgard. I could relate with him in a way, in that I'm well aware of the pain of watching a parent slowly fade away.
Nothing compares to that feeling of hopelessness, and if given the same opportunity, I'd have likely welcomed the same solution.
Moving on from that painfully honest bit of information. As with all books I read, I tend to look deeper into things; for meaning in aspects that are probably meaningless. Both Emmett and his father shared a particular trait of being tall, bulky and at times, questionably strong. The fact that Utgard's a stronghold of giants , I was left contemplating a connection. Could it be, that the old man's ancestry is intermingled with otherworldly blood? Punishing grindcore on the HPGD label, the latest from Blood Freak is a pitch-black cacophony of scuzzy, skull-splitting riffs.
