    suspense/futuristic lover?

    Being a fantasy/suspense story lover, and a Dekker fan, I really enjoyed this short story and look forward to reading the book it introduces.
    I think it will be an intriguing series to read with others and is very likely to have deep spiritual value.

    Excellent book! Quick read!

    This book was great. It was a quick read, but really gave a background to the new series that you might not get without reading this. Highly recommended.

    Simple characters and plot. Not recommended for adults.

    The book's premise interested me enough to give it a read. I found the characters ridiculous, the plot made overly complicated and plot devices introduced and then abandoned without seeing where they went. The plot and characters had a lot of judeo-christian themes and messages that were pretty obvious. All in all I say this book would be a good read for deeply religious people looking for meaning or for younger readers.

    I'M HOOKED!

    Read it and now I can't wait to read the whole thing. I love how Dekker is weaving of his other books into this one. Nice thing is, you don't have to read the others to figure it out. It'll definitely whet your appetite for more. I've been a fan of Ted Dekker for years. He never lets me down. His writing is inspired, intense, and inventive. Love it.

    Intrigued me enough to look into series

    This was a not bad e-novella prequel that got me intrigued enough to look into the series. It also helped explain the concept of the Keepers and how they got started.

    The Keeper gives you information about what is going to happen in the book The Forbidden. I recommend you read it because it is worth it.

    Disappointed

    I'm a great Ted Dekker fan, but this prequel was disappointing. I didn't feel it was up to his usual capabilities.
