Coming Soon from Seventh Star Press — Bob Freeman’s Keepers of the Dead
We interrupt our scheduled conclusion to the Parker Brothers Mystery Serial: Nos Galan Gaeaf for this very important announcement. It is both my honor and privilege to share with you now the cover art for my forthcoming novel from Seventh Star Press — Keepers of the Dead, book two in my Cairnwood Manor series.
Once again, illustrator Enggar Adirasa has outdone himself, delivering another beautiful piece of cover art. And they look absolutely smashing side by side. Makes me eager to see his rendition of next year’s Shadow of the Wolf.
So, what’s Keepers of the Dead all about? Here’s the back cover copy —
THE VAMPIRE MACGREGOR LIVES…
“Foolish pup,” MacGregor chided the werewolf, “you don’t get it. Laddie, if water were evil I’d be but a drop. What lurks below is an ocean.”
From the haunted halls of Cairnwood Manor to the bowels of Rosslyn Chapel, Bob Freeman hurls you into the very heart of the eternal conflict between the forces of darkness and the forces of light.
It’s fang versus claw, spell versus steel, and love versus death in an epic battle of blood and thunder.
When a sinister cabal converges to unleash the ultimate evil against an unsuspecting world, only the combined strength of the Wolves of Cairnwood Manor and the Circle of Nine Skulls offers up a glimmer of hope as werewolves, vampires, witches, immortal warriors, and an army of the undead collide in a battle of epic bloodshed.
“Bob’s imagination expertly fuses with occult wisdom to satiate anyone’s craving for a little blood, adventure, and a finale that’ll tear breath from mortal lungs.” — Rue Morgue Magazine
“Bob creates gothic atmosphere straight out of a gloomy old Hammer film, complete with towering, forgotten manors, and old family secrets.” — Louise Bohmer, author of The Black Act
“This is some really juicy stuff. Delicious language and dialog… smooth, rich and velvety.” —Fran Friel, Bram Stoker Award–nominated author of Mama’s Boy and Other Dark Tales
“Bob Freeman has written an electrifying horror thriller that is a throwback to the classic Castle horror movies albeit faster paced (some might say frenzied) and bloodier…” — Harriet Klausner
Keepers of the Dead will be available in November from Seventh Star Press, in print and ebook formats.
Watch for the stunning conclusion to the Parker Brothers Mystery: Nos Galan Gaeaf tomorrow, on Devil’s Night, if the old gods are willing and the dead don’t rise.
