I've been eyeing this short story for a while and kept wanting to buy it. It was the first thing I read on my new nook Simple Touch.

I had some trouble getting into the story, due to some turns of phrase and sentence structure that I found awkward. As I kept reading, I was drawn in and realized I wasn't reading it with the right flow, and therefore I wasn't quite picking up on all the meanings right.

Once I caught on, I *loved* it. I'm sure I'll be re-reading it in the future.

"Keep" is a fascinating classic fantasy story that both abuses and uses the overused tropes. I recommend it to anybody who likes traditional fantasy.
