Earth's Final Chapter Volume 1: Book 15: Outback Bordello Digital Download (English)
By GD Penman
Illustrated by Marta Maszkiewicz
Nine months of murdering has a way of making you want a vacation. When returning to the Outback Bordello to holiday for the winter, Bullfrog remembers to make a fair trade with Miss Jade Spade, keep his comrade Gunther from embarrassing him, and to seek out Sal for another season of R & R. But Gunther is not the only newcomer to the brothel this year.
On the surface it’s a story of a brothel, or Bordello, in the outback that comes under attack while two members of the Smilers Gang are wintering there. Underneath that broad description is a story full of twists and surprises that kept me guessing throughout.
Penman puts us right in there with real characters. The way they are described, their backstories and their interactions are all so well done that you start to fall in love with the staff and guests of the Outback Bordello. Love that Penman ruthlessly uses in the brutal second half of the story. (Seriously, be prepared…I was not prepared)
Writing is all about allowing the readers to follow along with the lives of your characters. The common struggle with writing is how to put you in the shoes of those living the story. Penman does this amazingly, all the while giving the reader lots of action to keep up with.
As the Bordello is attacked by a mysterious figure/creature, the characters go through many theories about what it is and why it was attacking them. At first, I must admit that I read it thinking to myself that I knew exactly where the story was headed. Even after I had to re-evaluate, I once again thought that I had a sense of where the story was headed.
I was wrong. -Tom Pahlow
