#Review: A Brother’s Keeper, by @KevinLucia

A Brother's KeeperTitle: A Brother’s Keeper (A Clifton Heights Tale)
Author: Kevin Lucia
Rating: 4/5 stars

“Today in Clifton Heights, a prodigal son returns home to help his brother in a time of desperate need…and fulfill his father’s wishes in paying back what he owes.

Whether he wants to, or not.” (description from Goodreads)

This was an enjoyable first read in Lucia’s Clifton Heights series.

I thought that Lucia thought up a very disturbing story for the main character and at the same time was able to describe the town’s oddities in just a hint of detail to get me to check out more of these stories. On it’s own, A Brother’s Keeper is a fast, twisted read that’ll get under any reader’s skin. The added knowledge that this isn’t the only strange occurrence in Clifton Heights makes the horror all the more terrifying. I felt like I was reading an episode of the Twilight Zone…but with more blood and gore.

I already have more stories loaded up on my Kindle to read soon. Lucia’s gained a fan with this one.
