Strange Country by Deborah Coates

As Strange Country opens, Army veteran Hallie Michaels finds herself dealing with the consequences of her actions over the last few months. Among those consequences are an inherited ranch with an unusual fence system, a deadly Unmaker set loose in the aftermath of Hallie’s journey into the Underworld, and a new wariness in her relationship with Boyd Davies, the sheriff’s deputy who has prophetic dreams of the future. Boyd, meanwhile, has problems of his own—namely, a murderous sniper targeting people under his protection.  When Boyd and Hallie discover the sniper may be after a set of mysterious stones capable of massive destruction, they must uncover the killer’s identity—before they end up in the crosshairs themselves.

With Strange Country, author Deborah Coates returns to the harsh, supernatural South Dakota landscape that she first explored in Wide Open (2012) and Deep Down (2013). Atmospheric and thoughtful, Strange Country has the restrained language and lonely landscapes of Cormac McCarthy combined with the unexpected magic of urban fantasy. If you enjoy western settings, a touch of magic, and complex female characters, check out a print copy or download the ebook today!
