Friday Free Read- The Keeper by Kim Despins

This week's Friday Free Read is an excerpt from Kim Despins' debut novel, The Keeper. It's a great blend of horror and urban fantasy, with a mystery and a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.

The synopsis~

The town of Anton has kept the secret of Aksonas farm for generations. Townspeople whisper and worry their children will be chosen and cursed to live an unnatural life in a makeshift family of wolves. When the moon rises, the men in Olivia’s family become wolves and prowl the countryside to protect their farm from predators. When Olivia stumbles upon the body of the church caretaker on their land, she’s forced to face the possibility that one of her family may have gone rogue. When she turns to the Sheriff for help in solving the murder, her family turns on her, forcing her to face the townspeople and the ghosts of her past alone. To make matters worse, a fire and brimstone preacher has decided to rid Anton of the ancient curse once and for all, no matter the cost.

The excerpt on our Friday Free Reads page is a scene after Olivia is forced to leave the farm where she lives, as the keeper to a pack of werewolves. Having nowhere to go, she's forced to rely on her estranged mother for a place to stay. Finding herself unable to sleep, she ventures outside for a walk. Obviously a bad idea, judging by what happens next.
