It is 1871. The landscape of the American West keeps getting colder and weirder in this highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning novel The Massacre At Yellow Hill.
Three years after the supernatural calamity that befell Yellow Hill, the Miller family finds themselves living in Abilene, Texas. There, the new life they hoped to find has been fraught with change and hardship. As a family they struggle to endure the challenges of time, circumstance, and the pestilential cold smothering the Texas landscape.
In those years Carson Ptolemy's life has changed too. No longer under the tutelage and provision of his father Gilbert Ptolemy, Carson directs the whole sum of his anger and young courage toward destroying the Society of Prometheus. But the occult society is old and powerful and vicious, and every day that passes brings them closer to ushering into the world a pantheon of nightmare gods known as - The Nine.
The fated threads of the Ptolemy and Miller family intertwine again as they face enemies new and old, casting all their strength against beings of tremendous and malevolent power in this action-packed horror adventure set on the American frontier. A Red Winter in the West is the second book in C.S. Humble's That Light Sublime Trilogy.

"C.S. Humble digs deep into West Texas dirt to uncover cosmic terrors, secret occult orders, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.

"The Massacre At Yellow Hill is a proper weird western with emphasis on characters and the unsettling horrors that only the best writers of weird fiction ever seem to manage.

"If you enjoy your horror weird and Western, but also full of heart, then this is the book for you." - Catherine McCarthy, author of Moonlit Path of Madness
