I started THE DAMNATION AFFAIR expecting a novella set in the series of Bannon & Clare (based on Goodreads’s characterization of this book as Bannon & Clare #1.5). What I found was a full length novel which, though nominally sharing the same universe as Bannon & Clare, had its own style and mythology entirely. Across the sea from everything familiar, THE DAMNATION AFFAIR is an enticing new take on the wild and dangerous West.
