5.0 out of 5 stars Good silly fun. Nov. 7 2011
By Nunya - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good, quick feel good read. One that "reads" like a game.

Good guys VS bad guys. Straight up story. Good writing and a pleasant afternoon or reading. Actually it won't take that long but still a good way to spend a few hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful fantasy Jan. 16 2011
By Sassy girl - Published on Amazon.com
Alan Dean Foster has always been a great writer.
I found this book in a used bookstore.
I love fantasy books.
This one in particular held my interest.
The characters are to say the least, different.
The plot is an easy one.
A young man takes up a dangerous journey
to "shadowkeep" to rid the world of an evil demon.
Along the way, he meets others who want....
"a piece of the action".
I like the simple "good versus evil"plot
and how this book deals with prejudices.
This is one of my keeper books.
Just a fun quick read to enjoy.
The only negative part being it ended way too soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read. Aug. 7 2000
By Christopher Ware - Published on Amazon.com
I've never heard of the game SHADOWKEEP, but I found this book in a quarter bin and decided to pick it up. First off, let me say that this book reads like one of those old adventure games: very straightforward and linear. It has no plot twists or complicated character interactions. The characters move from one locale to another without having to make any really difficult decisions. Mr. Foster did an excellent job of taking these two dimensional computer game characters and bringing them to life in a vivid, enjoyable way. Their interactions with each other were amusing at times and almost poignant at others.
The storyline was really simple, but thoroughly enjoyable. Good versus evil in a story where failure will result in the end of the world. Nothing deep or intellectual about it; just a romping adventure. A good book for a plane trip in that it doens't really take all that much concentration or thought to enjoy and it was very fast paced.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable, if not simple read. April 2 2002
By Zolgar of Juggled Books - Published on Amazon.com
Granted.. I'm not sure if you can trust my opinion of such things. I'll read (almost) anything asside from smutty romance novles.
I first picked this one up because I wanted to see how my favorite sci-fi author could do fantasy.. He does pretty good, but this book doesn't show that ;) (if you want to see a decent fantasy book by him, pick up Kingdoms of Light, unless you want perfectly serious fantasy.. then go get a Robert Jordan book :p)
Anyways, I digress (bad habbit.. let me tell you bout bad habbits....), like others have said the book is like the old adventur games. Simple, straight forward plot. Very common character types. And a rather predictable outcome with an abrupt end. With all that said, frankly, the book is STILL better than the DnD movie!
If you want a quick, enjoyable read, pick up a copy. If you want something deep that gets you attached to the characters.. Don't bother.. Try the Wheel of Time series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Reviews Jan. 4 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I find it interesting that someone would 'eagerly await' the release of a book that has been out for a long time. This book was release pre c-64 status game status.
The book is a quick read with delightful characters. It was designed purposely in a manner that left you to wonder (hence the idea fantasy).
If you are looking for a quick read, where you can relax and not get bored by authors like Tad Williams (Dragonbone Chair) who take 3 pages to describe a simple room, then pick this book up today. Its a good starting book for anyone you might want to introduce into the fantasy genre too.
