"The Keepers of Sulbreth" resembles its fantasy predecessors like "Le Morte de Arthur" in one way: by asking if a hero (who is bastard-born) can participate in a tournament and come out a king. Or at least where "Keepers" is concerned, can he come out a person with royal blood? The answer is yes, and though it's been done before, it's a fascinating take on the "chosen one" theme because of Gourley's investment in simultaneous character and world-building.

Cage Stone is the "Aragorn" of this tale.

My Review:
I think I liked this book from the very first sentence. I couldn't quote it, without looking it up, but I just know that I was utterly fascinated from beginning to end.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Keepers of Sulbreth. The characters drew me into the story, and I found the relationship between the Keepers and their marshals fascinating. Cage Stone is no ordinary man. Not a typical hero,he has a complex history, and I suspect that his unique background will become even more important as the series continues. His relationship with Sabelline promises to add plenty of tension to the story, as he accompanies her on their quest. Although I was not overly fond of king Jon ...more

Great fantasy with demons and magic. This is the first in a new series, and the next doesn't come out until Jan 2011. I am excited to read more!
