When I got this novella from Glen Krisch I started reading it the same day and basically could not tear myself away from it, I almost finished it in one sitting which is almost unheard of for me. Brother's Keeper is a stand alone story but one which I gather Glen plans on using as a springboard for a full Brother's Keeper Novel and maybe a trilogy. It begins with two brothers, Marcus and Jason divided by crime and drug taking. Marcus is abandoned by his brother Jason and his family after serial drug taking and nearly dying in the process. Unknown to Jason, Marcus has been recruited by the Arkadium, a strange quasi-religious group hell bent on destroying man's global technology and restoring the link with nature and hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Jason is persuaded after some bad news at home concerning his mother to follow Delaney (Marcus ex- girlfriend) to Concord, Illinois, where Marcus is apparently living. When they arrive at Concord, they discover a ghost town, all the inhabitants have disappeared, Marcus and his Arkadium cronies are on top of the nearby dam planning to dynamite it as one of a series of planned events across the world to cause devastation and globally the Arkadium have imminent plans to set off an EMP (electro magnetic pulse weapon) to disable all electronic devices worldwide. The dam explodes, the EMP weapon shortly explodes in the atmosphere afterwards. Mankind's technological existence comes to an abrupt end and Marcus persuades Jason to come along with him to record the start of a new world order. Absolutely amazing novella, I'm hooked already and was quite sad when it came to a short end and can't wait to see where this story goes with the luxury of a full novel. Glen Krisch really knows how to hook you in with a rip roaring story and pull you along by your shirt collar! if you haven't tried any of Glen Krisch's books yet, I urge you to give him a try, take my word for it you'll be hooked!
