Overview

"...should be required reading for anyone who still subscribes to the popular, dangerous fantasy of the nobility of war." (Lisa Tuttle, Time Out)

"This is a very fine debut novel ... Recommended both for the vision of the future and the excellent characterisation." (Paul Brazier, Nexus)

"Brooke balances action with introspection, the lyrical with a gritty documentary 'realism' in stark contrast to the usual shoot-'em-up adventure. Anyone who has thrilled to the exploits of lunar rebels or others among sf's doughty warriors should read Keepers of the Peace - as an antidote. It's a gripping story of challenge and skin-of-the-teeth survival, but it's also much more: an anti-war testament with a direct power that requires no preaching." (Faren Miller, Locus)

"...a cyber-anti-war story. Or anti-cyber-war. Cyber-dove? Whatever. Lucius Shepard and Joe Haldeman bounced off Heinlein and Gibson." (Russell Letson, Locus)

Editorial Reviews

Tom Whitmore
"It has been several years since a first novel has grabbed me the way Keith Brooke's 'Keepers of the Peace' did. It's a well-crafted, very personal look at the way war changes (and doesn't change) a kid from the sticks ... It is smooth, clean and elegant; a very straightforward book whose writing recalls the 1950s Heinlein, telling the tale without getting in the way."
