There are some spooky books and some that are just haunting. This book is a unification of both. The sweet taste of fear and nightmare all in The Keeper of the Crows, by Kyle Alexander Romines.
What would you do if you spotted a scarecrow lurking in your backyard? That's what was happening to people in the town of Grey Hollow, Kentucky. Resolution was up to Thomas, a nosy reporter with a past and Jezebel, the local law enforcement. While bodies piled up and the sky grew darker, the crows flew and they weren't looking for carrion...
The book was unbelievably good. It was a debut novel and totally on top! Filled with a ton of mystery, humor and supernatural deaths, I coudln't get enough of Keeper of the Crows. I don't know what I'd have done if I'd spotted a walking scarecrow in my backyard, or near my barn, but these guys did!
The story was about cruelty and folks thinking they 'Got Away With It'. Something gotten rid of decades ago decided to make a return to Grey Hollow. The sheriff, Jezebel, was familiar but wasn't sure if she could believe what was going on. A down on his luck reporter, Thomas, saw the facts and put them together but was pretty much left in shock as well, but together, they worked hard on finding those involved and saving townfolk. The evil that had come to the country town wasn't taking no for an answer and it killed anyone that got in its way, guilty or not.
The book carried a country feel that never allowed you to feel welcomed, due to a huge secret cover-up people in high places had forgotten, so the story felt angry and vengeful from the start. Sadly, it's also a tale of innocence lost. When you figure out what's going on, and if you're paying attention you will, you feel bad and wonder how things will play out. You almost want the evil to win!
Keeper of the Crows was fantastic. I think I'll purposefully seek out a few more titles by Romines. If his other books are anything like this one; nothing but hardcovers from here on out! I'm on to the next book!📚
