An army of moaners a thousand strong converges on Sheol and Karen is the only one who can stop them. Too bad she's standing on a gallows and the last time she saw McCall, the moaners were upon him...

Sheol brings the West of Hell trilogy to a conclusion. Loose ends are tied up and the end was part awesome, part WTF? I half-suspected what was coming but it was still a surprise.

The amazing thing about the West of Hell trilogy is how far Karen and McCall end up from where they started, both location

Sheol wraps up the story of McCall, Karen and the mysterious zombie apocalypse. I have to confess that just as I was growing a bit tired of more of the same the author really surprised me with an unexpected and very cool little twist.

It turns out that there is much more going on in the story than your run of the mill cowboys versus zombies thing. I like stories that surprise me. Sheol did a great job of doing just that. In this book it dawned on me that no one had any memories of more than a fe

Once again Jason Brant knocks it out of the park. We pick up right where Tartarus left off... or do we? Oh, yeah~ I'm not telling. I am convinced that no one writes action and fight scenes more adeptly and descriptively as this mullet-fanatic, Jason Brant. An amazing conclusion to an EXCELLENT trilogy. I eagerly await his next work. 5 reapers for Sheol, and 5 reapers to the West of Hell Trilogy. ...more

That was a fun zombie trilogy. Good grief, I love the whole zombie thing.

If interested, the first book is FREE on Amazon; always, per the author. :)

Sheol is the third and last book in the West of Hell series. It was the perfect conclusion to a completely different and wild ride. Zombies, prostitutes, and the Wild West ended up being the perfect combination.

I do not even know how to start because I do not want to post any spoilers. The second book left off with McCall sending Karen and Stephen to safety, at the detriment to his own. The third book begins with a shock that makes you glad that the hero is still in the story.

Holy crapola! Jason Brant has done it again. Sheol was impossible to put down. It's horror, zombies, gore and action at their finest. The imagery is disturbing and frighteningly, makes you feel as if you're in the thick of it.

I really like that there is a strong female lead that doesn't need constant saving either. Matter of fact, Karen is a heroine in her own right. I think in this genre and especially the time frame in which this series is set, it would be an easy pit fall to trip into. Luckil

The ending? What was that?

Highly disappointed in the ending of this trilogy. Surely this is not the end? Where did this come from? The blog no longer works. Can someone explain the ending to me? Did the author paint himself into a corner and could not figure out a proper ending? Bah!

This is the third and final installment of the West Of Hell series. When I read the first two books, Gehenna and Tartarus, I loved them. This final book made me love them more. So much more that I have to go and read the entire series over again! This is not just your typical zombie series…

When I sat down to do this review, I had a hard time trying to figure out how to describe this book without giving away the surprise. It took until I finished this incredible story to realize exactly what the

Jason Brant takes you on a journey back to the Wild West. Everyone is living life as usual until zombies, or moaners enter the scene. Karen and Mad Dog McCall are fleeing from one hell to another to escape these creatures. In this last book of the trilogy Karen is in prison, and about to hang for crimes she did not commit. McCall is crossing the desert to meet her in Sheol. They want to warn the people of the death that is coming toward them.
This is a book where I could see what was happening

It was great to finally get my hands on this final book of the West of Hell Series. Just as fast-paced as the first two. My only issue was the end. Sorry, Mr. Brant - I don't get it. I mean, I think maybe I do - but I'm not sure. If the end is what I think it is, then that's pretty cool. :) Can I get any more vague so as not to spoil it for future readers? Seriously, though. A great Wild West Zombie trilogy. Great fun. ...more

Sheol is the third and final book in the West of Hell series by author Jason Brant, concluding the Ol’ West’s fight against the mass horde of the undead.

I can’t go into the plot of this book, for it’ll contain way too many spoilers. All I can say is: Holy SH**!

Sheol is a fitting ending to the series, and I sincerely feel Jason Brant did a great job with the entire thing. There were a few questions I had with this book, but thankfully they were all answered at the end and I can say with the utmos

Sheol was my favorite book in the West of Hell Trilogy, by far. The end of Tartarus left me hanging by a fingernail, causing me to start reading Sheol immediately without passing go or collecting $200. I kept thinking, there’s no way these two people are still alive, no matter how strong they seem to be. McCall and Karen were constantly surrounded by pain, fire, and endless moans of death. And what place is described as a painful lake of fire with sounds of wailing and gnashing of teeth? So, rea ...more

After McCall was seemingly overrun by the zombies on their way to Sheol, Karen and the child she and McCall rescued from the train, made their way to Sheol on their own.

On arriving in town she was arrested by the sheriff of the town and thrown into jail. I won’t go into detail, but McCall, who Karen though was dead, arrived to save her from the gallows, and they, together with some of the town’s citizens tried to take a stand against the approaching zombie hoards.

They eventually had to flee, o

Phew thank you, Mad Dog. That’s all I’ll say about that. Here again Brant wrote a fantastic story and a fitting end to the zombie apocalypse. There are layers to this series and I truly enjoyed all of them, for me this wasn’t just a story about flesh eating monsters in a western setting, nor was it just a horror story. The characters were enjoyable and I loved the connection Karen and McCall found with one another. This final installment had me questioning things in the series and when the endin ...more

More than meets the eye.

Sheol is the final volume in Jason Brant's West of Hell series, and it wraps up the mysteries of the zombie horde's attack on three towns on the edge of the desert.

There is more to Karen, McCall, Sheol and the West of Hell trilogy then meets the eye and the book brings the series to a satisfying conclusion on more than one level.

Like the two books before it Sheol is a blazing fast read that's all action. There is a ton of gore and a lot of laughs. If I ever have to fac

I absolutely loved Sheol. It took me some time to finally read it after the events in Tatarus, but I'm glad I finally forgave Jason, and read it. He is an absolute genus in how he wrote both Tatarus, and Sheol. I am hoping that Jason will revisit the series and add another book that explains the gate, and what is beyond it.

The ending makes you look back and reevaluate the entire series.

This is definitely a must read series.

A good conclusion to the West of Hell series.
The entire West of Hell series has been chock full of Western Zombie fun, and this conclusion ramps up the excitement and gore for a thrilling end. I was a bit disappointed that some of the questions raised did were not answered, but overall a very good book.

Longer (slightly) and better than the first two books, this chapter leads our main characters to a conclusion of sorts. The story right at the end introduces a concept out of left field which makes me wonder if there is another book. Or two in this yet?

It's been quite a while since I binge read a series let alone two separate ones by an author I was previously unaware of. I am now a committed Jason Brant fan and look forward to and will keep a watchful eye out for his future work. The wild west and zombies! Nuff said eh. ...more
