The Houseguests

I wrote a short story! And now you can download it for FREE!
THE HOUSEGUESTS takes place between books 3 and 4 of The Devil’s Revolver series.

Eight-year-old Jacob Wheeler doesn’t know what to think of the strangers who arrive on horseback at his family’s remote farmhouse. The dark-haired bounty hunter has too many guns strapped to his body to be altogether safe, and the dying woman he calls his wife is downright terrifying. But Jacob’s parents agree to take the mysterious houseguests in, and he and his twin sister, Mary, can do nothing but watch and wait to learn what this unexpected event will bring into their lives. As the days pass and the woman begins to recover, she only grows more frightening — but Jacob begins to rely on the bounty hunter, who reminds him of the magazine stories about the legendary Elias Blackthorn and his cursed revolver.

In this atmospheric, menacing addition to the Devil’s Revolver Series, V. S. McGrath offers readers a glimpse at Hettie Alabama and Walker Woodroffe from the perspective of a boy faced with his first opportunity to grapple with good, evil, and the sacrifices required to protect the people who matter most.
