A sweeping high-stakes young adult saga where familiar Western adventure meets Weird West magic, shape-shifting and gruesome fantasy.
Only seventeen years old, Hettie Alabama leads her crew of underdogs with her father’s cursed revolver, magicked to take a year off her life each time she fires it. It’s no way for a ranch girl to grow up, but grow up she must. Her scars and determination to rescue her vulnerable younger sister deepen with every year of life she loses.
The Devil’s Revolver opens with a shooting competition and takes off across the landscape after a brutal double murder and kidnapping — to which revenge is the only answer.
Book 1 in an exciting action adventure series.
What a fantastic 'Weird West', magic, action, adventure tale!
This carefully constructed alternative Western story is populated with interesting, but not always likeable, characters. The magic is strange and unpredictable, and is very much part of the world, not added on top.
While a YA fantasy, the book never shies away from addressing the very real violence and horror of genocide and colonisation.
The Devil's Revolver is a riveting ride that mixes the grit of Westerns with the world of magic. McGrath loads this fantastic story with action, suspense, adventure and unforgettable characters. You'll definitely want to pull the trigger.
Immensely readable, gritty, and sharp as a spur rowel, The Devil's Revolver is a western with a twist.
Features vivacious heroes with tricks up their sleeves.
There's death and dying and secret operatives and speculators and dirty Pinkerton agents, a cowboy gang, werewolves, vampires and more in this story. Trust me, you won't be bored.
This is such a great book. The writing is excellent, the plot is packed with action, intrigue, and twists, and the world is fascinating.
The feminist western you’ve been waiting for: The Devil’s Revolver has heart and grit. A terrific genre-crossing tale with a deft touch of the macabre.
As for the plot and pacing, both were well-done with enough action and stakes to keep me reading, but not so much that it was exhausting. And while there were some violent, grim scenes and moments, I still found the book to be pretty fun overall in that action-packed, guns-and-magic-ablazin’ sort of way.
It's a fantastically readable female focused story, as Hettie (not pretty! not looking for a man!) sets out to save her abducted sister with the aid of a demonically powered gun that ages her a year every time it kills for her.
