    The setting late eighteenth century The players three men moving through a violent and unforgiving world, two looking for earthly revenge, one the self appointed hand of God The stakes a quest to understand man s place in the world and how the power of belief and a single act or decision can set the course of one s life.Young Josiah Fuller s life is irrevocably altered when, upon returning home from a multi day hunting trip, he finds his parents have been brutally murdered Not content simp The setting late eighteenth century The players three men moving through a violent and unforgiving world, two looking for earthly revenge, one the self appointed hand of God The stakes a quest to understand man s place in the world and how the power of belief and a single act or decision can set the course of one s life.Young Josiah Fuller s life is irrevocably altered when, upon returning home from a multi day hunting trip, he finds his parents have been brutally murdered Not content simply to kill, whoever was responsible tortured the Fullers before stringing them up from a tree and burning down the homestead.Josiah makes a vow to avenge their murders, and sets out on a quest to track and find the person s responsible Along the way, he is forced through his interactions with the people he encounters to deeply examine his life, and to ask the question whether trading his eternal soul for the satisfaction of earthly vengeance is something he s truly prepared to do.William Corvin was once a man of violence, but has reformed his life and now oversees his family s coal mine When a random encounter with two drifters visits violence upon Corvin s pregnant wife, like young Josiah, Corvin is forced to confront the question of whether slipping back into his old skin is worth the loss of his peaceful, hard fought for new life.A man known as The Rider is the thread that weaves the entire tapestry together Long ago he had a vision, one in which he was tasked with the mission of exacting the Lord s vengeance on those unfortunate enough to cross his path whom he believes to have sinned against God The Rider is utterly without pity for those he judges and finds lacking, and before the story s over each of the players involved will have to confront what he stands for and find out how they measure up.In a time and place where people are forced to live hard, often violent lives, debut author Brandon Daily explores the concept of whether man is in an almost no win situation, life s circumstances damn near necessitating for survival s sake that he engage in acts at odds with living a godly life Is man simply too fragile, his conviction and faith too weak, to overcome his earthly plight On the other hand, Daily does not let God off the hook either, questioning what kind of god would saddle man with such brutal lives and faith crushing burdens and still expect them to walk a righteous path.Make no mistake about it, A Murder Country is not light reading Writing with a self confidence it usually takes authors getting several books under their belts to muster, Daily jumps into the deep end with gusto and spins an engrossing yarn that elevates what could otherwise have been a run of the mill, historically set tale of vengeance to one rich with philosophical and spiritual implications It s a challenging read, but one you ll relish both while in it and for some time after

    Set in late 19th century Appalachia, Brandon Daily s A Murder Country follows four main paths as characters travel their separate roads One young man plans revenge for his parents death Another acts as God s avenging angel A third man seeks redemption after the misdeeds of his past And still others seeks whatever they can acquire from the creation of chaos These stories and separate quests blend and intersect, bound by the land that unites them, the bible that once defined them, and the la Set in late 19th century Appalachia, Brandon Daily s A Murder Country follows four main paths as characters travel their separate roads One young man plans revenge for his parents death Another acts as God s avenging angel A third man seeks redemption after the misdeeds of his past And still others seeks whatever they can acquire from the creation of chaos These stories and separate quests blend and intersect, bound by the land that unites them, the bible that once defined them, and the laws of nature and creation.The writing has an old fashioned cadence, reminiscent of a morality tale, and redolent with symbolism and meaning But the story s approach is thoroughly modern, without the dedication to faith of its forebears In this darkly imagined world, God might see no difference between sinner and sin, an angel of redemption might look dangerously similar to death, and faith alone might not heal Actions have consequences far beyond intention of course, and guilt is a moveable feast, transferred, transected and translated by the ordered chaos of life.As the characters proceed along their intersecting paths, the land itself might have the final say something solid that remains, unaffected by guilt or innocence, but wounded just the same A Murder Country then seems almost the story of a country, still young, still making decisions that might change the world It s a slow read, heavy in places, weighty with pain, and densely packed with complex word choices and evocative calls for thought, but it s definitely intriguing Disclosure I was offered a free advance ecopy of this novel with a request for my honest review

    Nothing is sugar coated Daily s writing includes a brutal evil that is unfortunately very real and prevalent in human nature A Murder Country exposes how the human heart lusts for revenge The book forces you to question morality and the evil inside of you, and the overpowering desire for revenge that you will inevitably face I highly recommend the book Be prepared to think and reflect a lot The way in which evil moves in each character s heart made me quite emotional, actually The words Nothing is sugar coated Daily s writing includes a brutal evil that is unfortunately very real and prevalent in human nature A Murder Country exposes how the human heart lusts for revenge The book forces you to question morality and the evil inside of you, and the overpowering desire for revenge that you will inevitably face I highly recommend the book Be prepared to think and reflect a lot The way in which evil moves in each character s heart made me quite emotional, actually The words are heavy and amplify the intensity of the book It is shocking and quite grotesque But that s the point Daily s use of figurative language and descriptive imagery reveal how evil humans can really be, especially when we allow this evil to manifest in our hearts, minds, and souls Each one of us is capable of any of these cruel acts That is why I was constantly wondering about The Rider The thing is, everyone has done something immoral at one point or another, and should all technically be punished by The Rider That is why I was skeptical of him at first yet it is clear that he puts morality into question He commits cruel acts of torture and brutality as well but is it automatically okay because those people did the same thing to others Is he in fact doing the right thing Or, would killing The Rider be the act of grace, as this would be preventing evendeaths in the future It seems as if A Murder Country shows a life without any grace No second chances, no forgiveness On Josiah Fuller s journey to avenge his family s cruel deaths, he is caught up in multiple conversations that force him to think about his actions He is the perfect example of that choice either giving into that temptation to seek revenge, ignoring warnings along the way, or making the conscious effort to keep peace and choose grace I feel like there is a Josiah in all of us but we can actually learn from him and have the chance to choose peace over violence When an act of evil is committed against you, you become so focuses on how the person who wronged you will regret what they did You want them to suffer What you fail to realize is, if you follow through and act upon your anger, YOU will regret what YOU did Not only will you have to deal with the pain that was inflicted upon you, but also the guilt of your own actions that followed Next time you are quick to seek revenge, instead of becoming engrossed in how you will get payback, start thinking about how you can choose to AVOID even MORE pain and suffering This is when you are presented with the same choice one that may even go against the desires of your human nature choosing grace or choosing revenge If you write yer life around exactin some kind of revenge, it will destroy you, spiral out of yer power til yeh cain t control it, and it ll devolve into some monster beast that yeh cain t cage

    A Murder Country by Brandon Daily was an extremely dark and grotesque book that required complete focus it is definitely a book for a mature audience, and individuals with a strong vocabulary This book contained sophisticated vocabulary, along with very descriptive words that painted a picture in my mind as I read I noticed that Mr Daily describes nature beautifully and humans as these awful creatures I think that this goes to show that humans are what is wrong with the earth because all we A Murder Country by Brandon Daily was an extremely dark and grotesque book that required complete focus it is definitely a book for a mature audience, and individuals with a strong vocabulary This book contained sophisticated vocabulary, along with very descriptive words that painted a picture in my mind as I read I noticed that Mr Daily describes nature beautifully and humans as these awful creatures I think that this goes to show that humans are what is wrong with the earth because all we do is destroy each other, ourselves, and the world we live in This book forces the reader to look within themselves and analyze how we are like Josiah, who is looking for justice, but does he actually receive it We get into this idea of revenge, and if revenge or the quest for revenge ever make us feel better
