I’ll Be Damned introduces the reader to Anna, a Savannah coffee shop owner who has been plagued for years with mysterious attacks of cramping and pain and an odd effect on other people. Things start to really become strange as handsome men suddenly take an interest in her. At last, her family divulges information that they have kept hidden from her for the past 29 years. Anna, with the support of a few great friends and the new men in her life, develops into a character she never knew she could be. She learns just how important she is, not only to her family but to the world in general.
I’ll Be Damned is a great read that is just thrilling enough without being horrifying. The characters are well developed and certainly interesting. Casey Keen does a great job of keeping the action and excitement going page after page. Unsuspected and certainly surprising facts greet Anna as she is forced to confront a truth she never suspected. However, there is no doubt that her friends will help her through the ordeals she must face. Keen does a masterful job of developing Anna from a ‘regular gal’ into someone quite special -– someone on whom her teachers and the whole world depend to maintain the balance of good and evil. The descriptions are quite realistic and all the characters have a depth that makes them believable. Playful, serious, and insecure moments offer realism to this great paranormal novel.
