    Absolutely gripping and deliciously, vividly creepy, with a sense of time and place you can practically taste and writing that gallops - I read it in one sitting and wanted to cheer. Knocks it right out of the park. Give me the movie (AND SEQUELS) now please!! ...

    It isn't often that you get a mesh of genres that blend together so seamlessly and yet, Dust Until Devils did it and did it well. A mix of western, dystopian, and a bit of this and that, and this novel truly stands out and shines. It was fun, adventurous, enthralling, and unbeli...

    Devils Unto Dust is tense and engaging and is something akin to a zombie western. I enjoyed every page of this dangerous journey through a desert filled with the dead and can't wait to read more from debut author, Emma Berquist! ...

    Once you have read the first paragraph you will be unable to stop turning the pages! It has everything I love in a book. A spunky and determined heroine on a quest to protect her family. You feel the desert and the dangers that lie ahead as the novel unfolds. I could not put the book d...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight Let's just break this one down in a "yay versus nay" fashion, mostly because I said so. The Stuff I Liked: The setting was pretty great. I mean, Western stuff is ...

    I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I started this book. I am not a huge fan of zombies and I was a little nervous. I am very happy I read this book because it was not what I expected. Set in a Dystopian world, it has a sort of western feel to it. I can't remember if it ever...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy via Edelweiss for review purposes. By the end of this trip I'll be more dust than girl. The desert claims everything, in the end. Summary: This was such a lovely surprise? I don't know what I was expecting but this was so much better. Fantastic...

    The desert is still, no sign of movement, not even dust. But it?s a calm stillness, ancient and unchanging. The desert was here before us, and it will be here long after, watchful and patent and unmoved. I?m a total sucker for ?infection? horror stories?if you?re unfamil...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books* Even if this book releases on 2018 I could keep it down. The Wild West meets zombies in this engaging trip from one city to another and a girl's attempt to save her famil...

    3-1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up to 4 because I just really enjoyed this YA "zombie western." It took me a few chapters to really get drawn into this story, but once I did there was no turning back. I thoroughly enjoyed the cast of characters in this book. Yes, there was some predic...

    I'm a sucker for YA western-ish reads, and so even this wasn't totally a western (zombie-like creatures abound) and the time period was unknown, I did enjoy it from start to finish. The protagonist reminded me a bit of Saba from Blood Red Road (one of my favorite books) and the pacing ...

    But I know better than that; this desert may have my heart, but this town will take my bones. This is a tough book to review because 1. I just read another YA zombie book that ventures into western territory also set within the same decade (1877), albeit different in concept but rea...

    I?m absolutely in love with this novel. The action, setting, suspense and characters were amazing. Usually with novels I?ll just read a couple pages a day before bed, but with this novel it literally kept me up till 6 am because I just couldn?t force myself to put it down. Willie...

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. "What if it isn't the fever that sends them lunging at the healthy, teeth snapping and fingers tearing? Maybe we have it wrong. Maybe this is what humans are truly like, when you take away reason and control and ...

    I was lucky to pick this book up just in the right moment, coming off of a massive Fallout binge. DEVILS UNTO DUST is a western with zombies and it reads just exactly like you think something like this would read. It's atmospheric, character-driven, and utterly devastatingly sad. The...

    Mini Review: 3 1/2 stars for me personally (in a bit of a slump and having trouble getting into any books), but a four overall. The writing quality is fantastic for a debut. Rich character dynamics, and this is waaaay more interesting than most journey books. This is what Walk on Earth...

    4 stars What a fun, atmospheric (if infected people zombies and Western desert is your type of atmosphere) survival story! I mean, there were a lot of things to love about this, but my favorite part has just got to be the worldbuilding and atmosphere! I felt like good chunks ...

    Such a great book - I really enjoyed reading it, it was gripping and incredibly well written! Devils Unto Dust struck the perfect balance of YA and Western for me, and absolutely captured that good gritty feeling that I want when reading about West Texas. ...

    I don't say this often, but I couldn't put this book down. It's not only fast-paced, and suspenseful but it's BEAUTIFULLY written. Berquist doesn't sacrifice entertainment for style. There are remarkably poetic, and poignant passages about despair, failure and hope (some of which remin...

    I am sad to finish this book. I loved the desert & fever dream scenes, as well as being on the road with Willie. She leaves Glory to search for her father in order to rescue herself and protect her siblings. Ms. Berquist is especially good at characterizing the closeness of sibling...

    *4.5 Stars I love a zombie western, it is quickly becoming my favorite subgenre within the zombie world. The western has taken a fabulous turn over the past few years, alright, a few decades if I go back to the Unforgiven. The black and white Stetsons don?t mean what they used to,...
