Summary

Some things are older than time. Older than darkness.

Levi is a monstrous man - made of scars and scary as hell, he’s glutted on ghosts and evolving to carry out the dark wishes of the ancient whispers in his head. He’s building a door and what’s on the other side is terrifying.

Jones spent a lot of time living bottle to bottle and trying to erase things. Now he’s looking for the man who killed his mother and maybe a little bit of looking or himself as well.

Keaton is on the run from accusations as well as himself, he suffers alone until he meets Jubal, an orphaned boy with his little sisters in a sling.

Every line is not a straight line and everything must converge. A parable writ in dust and blood on warped barn wood. A journey in the classic sense, populated with dried husks of towns...and people both odd and anything but ordinary. Hornets, reverse-werewolves and one of the most vicious villains you’ll ever know are all part of it.

Pull on your boots and saddle up, we’ll Walk The Darkness Down.

Supernatural western horror

In this supernatural western horror, Levi is set on creating hell on earth. Killing entire towns and not sparing a soul. “This person was carved from bad dreams. He was a quilt of scary stories and fearsome fables, stitched in scars and ratty whiskers”
There are only three looking and trying to stop the murderous madman. Jones, looking to avenge his mother’s death. Keaton, who is just trying to get through life until he meets up the the last of their group, Jubal, who is an orphaned boy that was living with his dead parents.
With towns named Lutzke, and Lansdale, and a character named Bob Ford; Boden pays tribute to other great authors who we all should be reading.
John Boden is an artist with words. His elegant true style bring you into the story and make you taste the grit in the wind and feel the grime on your neck. He makes you thirsty wishing for a dip from the silty well at the corner of the farm as you join your posse to Walk The Darkness Down.
