Marshall Clayton Jensen's job is to fix things for the people too weird for the government to touch—witches, fairies, monsters.

Talk about delightful! This is a Western with a hefty serving of fantasy and a side of romance—an unstoppable combo, if you ask me. Clayton Jensen is a marshal, but being half-fae he specializes in “weird” cases. He’s got more problems on his hands than just enforcing the law, however, as his fairy ex-girlfriend Cora enlisted a witch to put a curse on him. When Jensen kills the witch in self-defense, the wrath of her many witch sisters descends upon him. Now he’s running for his life with his tr ...more

This is my favorite book from Hillary Monahan to date. I grew up watching westerns with my grandpa, and it's a genre I often feel sentimental about. This book had that fantastic old western feel with a nice infusion of urban fantasy to make it exciting. I absolutely loved the characters and I'd love to read the adventures of Clay, Irene, and Addy again some day. Clay was macho, vulnerable, and hilarious all at the same time, and a wonderfully nuanced protagonist. Fantastic book and I'd recommend ...more

I enjoyed this a lot -- it's a fun, magical world, with a good dude main character and some interesting female co-leads. The best part of the story, though, was the foreground presence of a trans woman, someone who has good friends but also faces abuse and hatred; the latter is hard to read but its presence seems important, because it roots her identity a bit more in the reality a trans woman would face in the old west (even an magical one). She's tough and smart and is, arguably, the hero of th ...more

I had so much fun with this book, and to have a fat woman be sexy was mind blowing to me. I was very interested in how Doc and Irene managed to wander the west. I will write more of a review later, but you should read this!

This was a curious little book, delightful in many places, dragging in some others, but overall quite enjoyable.

The basic premise is this. Clayton Jenson, charming, handsome, asshole-ish, is suffering from a devastating blood curse that will see him rotting from the inside, wasting away until death. Cursed by one of the five Lynch sisters at the behest of Cora, Clayton's ex-girlfriend, Clayton is now on a race against time to find a cure. While traveling with Addy, a fairy and also Cora's siste

Hillary Monahan delivers another irresistible and wholly original story with GUNSMOKE AND GLAMOUR. I've never been a fan of classic Westerns because of their problematic nature, but Monahan turns the stereotypes on their heads and then adds magic. In short, this book is an absolute thrill ride, complete with romance, morally gray characters, danger, curses, and a tiger to tie it all together.
