    Recommended to all who love speculative fiction

    This book kept me locked inside for days. I ate, drank and breathed the Keepers. I've finished books this long in shorter amounts of time even, but never books this long with so many facts. It's speculative fiction, aka science faction, so the author keeps this wild future realistic by showing what's going on today and similar patterns in the past. The most standout tech in the book, the Animalian Projects, are biomimicry vehicles based off the most agile creatures of land, sea and air. This is hard to buy into, until you find out that the military is presently building a tank based off a cheetah. They already have BigDog, which is a robot based on a camel, carrying supplies in Afghanistan. Everything in the story is similarly credentialed. This was great. Its been so long since I really bought into a story, got lost in it because it didn't break the fourth wall with a plothole. So I was able to be carried away into this near future full of larger than life characters with such depth and faceting I rarely see in sci fi, and technology and landscapes that are of the most unique and remarkable I've read from the imaginations of any author, and all the while believe it could be true. What an awesome experience. I truly can not wait to get started on the next.

    Richard Friar is on my watch list for upcoming best selling authors!

    Richard Friar combines the perfect balance of intellect and action in 'The Keepers.' This is a must read that will educate you and entertain you at the same time. Richard's use of historical events/figureheads and his vast knowledge of warfare, makes for a riveting read. Every element he sets up, pays off and exceeded my expectations. I am an avid sci-fi reader and I rank Friar with some of the greats, Asimov, Heinlein, Frank Herbert to name a few. The Keepers is apparently a trilogy and I cannot wait for the second installment! I foresee a movie and a video game in the near future!
