Sarah Langan's The Keeper

I just finished fellow NY writer Sarah Langan's debut novel, The Keeper (HarperTorch, 2006), and it's a nice one. Sarah's voice is so lyrical throughout this tale, that I would recommend it based on the quality of its writing, not just for its chills. It truly is not "just" a horror novel. Nor is it in any way "just" a good first novel. The level of mastery, skill and artistry are astonishing. The deep, dark secrets are perhaps a little easy to guess early on, but the characters are so clearly and compellingly drawn that you cannot help caring about them, needing to know what happens to them.
