Seconded. I grabbed my copy the other week when it was decided upon, and had a read of the first chapter and a bit. I'll be honest, it was a stretch to get used to, for me at least.

There seems to be a natural break about half way through when the group of riders changes from being heroes to murderers. I think the point after (without trying to give any spoilers yet) the band of apaches are slaughtered is basically half way. The book is much darker after that (which doesn't really seem possible until it is).
