Product Description

Product Description

The Brin say Robyn's uncanny quickness and stark physical oddities are the devil's traits. Robyn, a gangly human, stands out among the squat, wide-framed Brin. Her physical differences are aptly suited to staving off assailants who hunt her after the killing of a revered Keeper-a death she unwittingly delivered. The only hope of quelling the spreading chaos and restoring Brin's balance lies with Keeper Corax, her mentor and surrogate father. While journeying to seek Keeper Corax's aid, Robyn confronts truths that shatter her view of the world. She learns humans are a race believed eradicated by the Keepers. She experiences an unexpected arousal when fighting-a dichotomy of compelling and revolting sensations that Robyn struggles to overcome. She unveils the Keepers' parasitic nature-their manipulation of the Brin's life force for power, control and pleasure. Moreover, she discovers Keeper Corax instigates the chaos that threatens to destroy her as well as millions of Brin. The Brin compare Robyn to the devil; now she will reveal how right they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantasy you will love! Aug. 17 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Keepers is a fascinating look at what might happen if humanity was wiped out by another species - and one happened to survive. For anyone who is a fan of strong female leads, you will love Robyn (she reminds me of Ayla from Clan of the Cave Bear). Her story of her life among the Brin is fascinating on many levels. She feels odd and out of place, ugly because thats what she's been told she is. She has to struggle more than others to fit in in her quest to be accepted by the Brin. When she's given what she thinks is a simple quest, her life is changed forever by one simple, unforseen act. She has to try to find her way, not only in where she fits in in this strange world, but as she struggles with feelings that she knows she shouldn't be having about acts she's forced to perform. I don't want to give anything away, but I promise that you will be surprised by what she finds in her journey. Interspersed with her story are sub-stories about various others in the Bound, all equally exciting. A very compelling story you won't be able to put down. I can't wait for the next installment to see what happens with Robyn and the rest of the Brin.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting Ride March 14 2011
By Ranchlover0311 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you like action, turmoil, and triumph (and who doesn't?) - you will love this book. This is a fast-paced, fun read that will allow you to escape "real world" for a bit to follow Robyn and Brit in Jeffery Moore's well-crafted universe. I was drawn in quickly and truly began to care about each of the characters as I learned about their individual conflicts. If I could describe this book in one word, it would be enthralling. I truly can't wait for more!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I have ever read. Sept. 7 2010
By Triquetra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am an avid reader of speculative fiction, and this was one of the best I have ever read. I do tend to skip boring bits in novels but did not skip even one sentence in this book. A fast paced, exciting narrative where nothing is straightforward, The Keepers is a gripping tale which left me eager for more. The plot has surprises, reversals, new light on central characters, and refreshing twists. Jeffery Moore has woven a complex and deep other world, an intriguing world full of surprises. Moore has kept away from stereotypical formulas, while weaving a cleverly spun fantasy. Gripping story-telling. This is a book to get excited about. Jeffery Moore is now one of my favorite authors and I am sure The Bounds series will become a classic.
