I received an ARC from the author, JUSTIN BIENVENUE: in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of “BLOODY, BLOODY MESS IN THE WILD, WILD WEST”.
When I was asked to read and review this book for the author for Mr. Bienvenue’s book tour. I was quite fascinated with the story line. That I just had to read this book. I have never read any of this authors books before. Therefore, you can imagine my shock when I started reading this book. And found it to capture my attention from the first page. His writing is very different from any that I have read. Mousey has not read a lot of zombie books. But I have to say this one has me hooked.
The way on which the author takes up his pen to paper to create this marvelous story right out of our history books- is just pure GENIUS! The way in which he has taken a piece of history- then added to it. The pieces which have been added to make this into what I would classify a fantasy – horror .thriller. Mr. Beinvenue has true talent – with his creation. He brings it to life right before the reader’s eyes, the characters are brought to life not only in detail- but also in spirit. As you read what is going on and what each character is saying. You are seeing everything unfold right before your eyes. As a reader – the author has made sure in his writing that the description is so fine tuned to the smallest detail.
When you read the title of the book- you think ok this is a western. Awesome, everyone loves a good cowboy and Indian story. But looks are so deceiving. The phrase- don’t judge a book by its cover” well this book differently fall’s in that category. At first glance, when you are starting to read this amazing book. You will even think that it is a historical western. However, as you are drawn further and further into the show down. This fascinating western is actually a different type of Zombie book. One that is written for both the young adults in mind and also for the adult readers.
This is the very first book that I have read from this author – Mr. JUSTIN BIENVENUE. And I am so looking forward to adding his books to my bookshelf on Goodreads to be read. Not only that I am looking forward to reading his next book in this series. I sure hope there is a follow up with this one!.
The Bloody, Bloody Mess in Wild, Wild West takes places in 1870”s. It is after the Civil War between the states, all the men are returning home. Toomswood is located between Mississippi and Alabama, it is a very small town. Has really nothing going for it- the towns folks have tried to keep it going. They don’t trust or like out siders.

(A poem about the antagonist and antagonist)
Emerson V. Javier
He’s for the law and goes by the book
The other believes in an eye for an eye
Crime doesn’t pay and you’ll pay in the end
Guns blazing without any care or concern
You have right to trial its in the moral code
If someone doesn’t die it just isn’t good enough
To kill if one has to is as long as it’s justified
Spitting in the face of those against those who play dirty
Anger may consume but control is the answer
Let it take over and let all who disagree burn in hell
Some instincts and skills cannot be taught or learned
Power can be achieved if you know the right people
Not every conflict needs to end in blood
It isn’t a conflict if it doesn’t end in a bloody mess..
“I’m the baddest man there is in this town or any town through The Mississippi. You thinking you’re gonna waltz up on me and kill me? Ha! I’ll do for you like I did for my late dog and put you out of your misery” -Javier “Bones” Jones
“If you love to kill and can do it as well as I can, then what better way to raise hell?” -Javier “Bones” Jones
“God help me, I’m gonna make sure we get out of this alive and I’m going to kill that son of a bitch…I’m gonna make him wish he never stepped foot in this town” -Emerson Shaw
“If your drunk I suggest you lay off the bottle a while cause we need everyone alert” -Emerson Shaw
