The Keeping tells the story of Melody Greene and new pack alpha Ryne Taylor.The story starts when Melody, a journalism mayor, accepts a job for the mysterious Mr. Aldrich to track down and interview nature photographer Ryne Taylor.

He moved to Stump River, Canada with his new beta Bryan and their friend Daniel.

And yet the two can’t seem to stand each other most days. As their attraction grows, problems arise that threaten the lives and freedom of Ryne’s newly formed pack.I enjoyed this book for several different reasons. Obviously the story is great, but the society Nicky Charles has created is incredible. She makes you believe that werewolves are just another race of people. They have their own laws, customs, and traditions. I also love how adaptable this book is. While it’s not been printed, it is compatible with most eReaders. It can also be read from any computer and it is absolutely free.Nicky Charles has done an incredible job with this story. She brings two werewolf stories into the modern world but keeps the classic traits we love.
