Kurzbeschreibung

Cast out from the magical kingdom of The Realm and into the dying desert of the Sands beyond, Marshal Clint Gulliver and his unicorn Edward have finally found peace in the small and dusty town of Solace. For the first time since leaving The Realm, Clint has dared to be happy, getting hitched to his bride to be, Mai. But when the town faces a deadly approaching enemy, the gunslinger feels compelled unholster his seven-shooters to face it... and the dark magic it brings with it.

From the creators of Yesterday's Gone (Platt) and Fat Vampire (Truant) comes this reinvention of both the western genre and unicorn lore. Written for children and teens -- but complex and awesome enough for adult readers -- Unicorn Western is "Harry Potter without wizards, with gunslingers, with talking unicorns and epic unicorn fights, and with more turkey pie."

PRAISE FOR UNICORN WESTERN:

"The best story to ever come out of a stupid idea."

"Unforgiven meets Realms of Fantasy... I can't wait to follow Clint and Edward on the rest of their adventures. This is truly a book the whole family can enjoy."

3.0 von 5 Sternen It's like my 11 and 7 year old got together and spun a story - but it turned out amazeballs 14. August 2013
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The life of a writer can't be all that exciting. After all, much of it is solitary writing, putting things down on paper/screen. However, these guys must have pretty amazing "idea" sessions. It's like you stuck my two kids in a room for a what if session, with the agreement that whatever they could think up, you'd write about. Unicorns and cowboys and not just that, smart ass talking unicorns and cowboys. Someone must have had some really good weed that day, but then sat down sober the next day to write a really fine book around the ideas.

This book was incredibly entertaining, which is exactly what you'd expect from these guys. If you're going to plunk down your hard earned cash, this book and others buy these guys will give you lots of entertainment for your dollar, pound, euro, ruble, pesos, etc.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wildly Insane! Tons of fun! 22. Dezember 2012
Von Kathy Austin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Totally insane story, but oddly makes sense. You'll fall in love with Edward, identify with Clint and wonder about Mai. Magic galore. Breezed right through this book and can't wait for the next one! More, more, more pleasem and thankoo!

UPDATE: Review of Episode 4 (won't let me review each episode individually)...

Each episode gets wilder and more insane. Episode 4 goes waaaay beyond what I expected. More action, more suspense, more wonderment, more fun, more unicorny antics, more magic. Clint and Edward seem to have a knack for attracting the craziest, most dangerous, unsavory characters who initially follow the norm (?) for bad guys but oddly enough SOMETIMES can act fully human. When you least expect it. And Buckaroo? What can I say? Hope to see more of him, he reminds me of C3PO. The end (which really isn't the end because more episodes are coming)...BLEW ME AWAY! My heart literally skipped a couple beats (and I think I let out a small squeak/scream/curse word) when Edward fell (not saying anymore as to not ruin it for you, but if you even HALFWAY love this unicorn, you'll have the same reaction). I was soooo worried and scared for him. And what of Clint? Well, the last few paragraphs may have just broken his heart. We'll have to see. I know they broke mine. BUT...Sean and Johnny will likely come out with a twist where all will be well. But then again, with these two, you just never know! Magic will only fix so much. And really Sean and Johnny....SLY STONE? Are you serious? I almost have a feeling there is a hidden meaning there that I'm missing. I almost peed my pants when I read his name.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's in there... 25. Mai 2013
Von rcmwandering - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Every bad cliche, every overused trope, every ridiculous conceit in several different flavors of genre fiction, all thrown together... mostly upside down, backwards, or sideways.

One of the guiltiest of guilty pleasures - the writers are apparently utterly deranged and totally maniacal, with either no respect for convention or so MUCH respect for it that they refuse to approach it at all except to stand it on its ear.

I'm giving it four stars because my high school literature teacher would roll over on a rotisserie if I gave it five...

Oh, what the heck, she's dead anyway. It's good for five. It's a quick and amusing way to blow through an hour or so - perfect bus-or-train fare. (Wouldn't recommend it for an airplane; you'll be snickering wickedly most of the time and the paranoid among the passengers will have the TSA guys on you for it...)

5.0 von 5 Sternen I Ain't Got Time to Bleed... Rainbows 2. Februar 2013
Von Tots4Masses - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If Stephen King dropped acid and some E when he was writing the Dark Tower series it might have been Unicorn Western.

Of course it would have been three thousand pages longer...

Platt and Truant paint an unusual picture with a familiar western landscape inhabited by unicorns, magic and other fruity things. The story is also filled with eating, drinking, fighting, bleeding, insults and romantic tension in an unconventional story of good verses evil. Even though the story is not the usual western, It didn't take long before the Wild West Marshall riding a unicorn blasting his seven shooters had me hooked.

Yes, I was rooting for Clint and Edward to kick butt, drink beer and eat turkey pie in the best story to ever come out of a stupid idea.

Hopefully the guys can keep goading Dave into making great ideas against his will.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Better. 16. Februar 2015
Von Theodore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Lots better than Fat Vampire. I hesitated in picking this book up, despite my interest in it, after I was so disappointed reading Fat Vampire. But, either Sean does Johnny a lot of good, or Johnny had just improved as a writer by this point, because the writing improved drastically. The characters were a lot easier to relate to, the plot made more sense, and it moved at a decent pace.

That said, the writing is mostly "okay." Some of it is a little chuckle worthy, and I definitely enjoy the concept of a snarky unicorn. But, sadly, most of the things I love about this book are concepts, not execution. Unlike Fat Vampire, this isn't enough to make me dislike the book, but it is enough to hang me up on the price of more of the story.

Honestly - and I admit this is personal preference - I don't really like how quickly the story cuts off. This feels more like the first arc of a story rather than a complete one. I know, I know, that's why they're called "episodes" and "season," and I can get behind that, I just feel like it isn't as well developed as it could be because it's limited to the amount of space it's limited to.

The cover is absolutely spectacular, as Johnny said himself in Write. Publish. Repeat., and there's a lot of good world-building I can get behind in this story. i felt like ti wasn't trying as hard to be funny through the whole book, which meant the jokes felt a lot less forced, and therefore funnier. I think some of the background of the world got a little confusing to me, mainly because of the lack of space to fully develop, as I mentioned before. Rather than having the info-dump problems that occurred in Fat Vampire, it felt more like problems of not explaining enough of what was going on. I wasn't sure exactly what was going on with the whole "Realms is cut off" thing? I was hoping that if I continue reading, that would begin to make better sense.

Overall, not a waste of time, fairly enjoyable, and certainly well worth being free.
