Bodacious Creed review:
Steampunk western zombie… these many genres in a single novel? Jonathan has to be appreciated for his effort in putting all these genres together. He has done a great job in terms in gelling these genres in a single novel. One can feel the setup of the Wild West along with the historical steampunk colour and zombies behind us.
Bodacious creed is one of those rare novels that keeps the readers hooked till the last page. The story takes some time to set in, but once it does the phase doubles up. The second half of the novel is the real page turner. One cannot put it down until the questions are answered.
The characterization is great, Jonathan has webbed each character with care. James and Anna impress with the humanity bound views, whereas Blake and the criminals really make us hate them.
The lucid language and fast phased story are the never miss aspects. Bodacious Creed is a must read novel for its multi genre combination and fast phased second half.
- A fast phased second half
- Combination of steampunk western and zombie genres
Should have been better:
- First half takes some time to settle in
