A strange blend of a vampire with origins in Medieval France, a vampire who seems to have been a pagan druidess/priestess before she was turned, the legacy of King Arthur and a modern day vampire assassin, Keeper of the King is the tale of Richard Dun's desperate quest to save his vampiric creator from reverting into little more than a beast in human form. He will have to fulfill a Grail Quest, while at the same time preventing the assassin Charon from taking out the P.M of Canada during a state occasion in Montreal. Will the former Richard D'Orleans, Lancelot Du Lac and now Richard Dun succeed in his most personal quest yet.....?

The book is excellent - I recommend it and the reason I know is that I have the audio version! It is abridged however and I wanted to read the book in its entirety BUT another book was posted instead. A sticker on the back says it is Keeper of the King but the book is a Stephen King. Don't trust this seller.

Format: Hardcover
"Keeper of the King" is a refreshing change to the usual vampire story. This engaging new novel immediately draws the reader in to witness the main character's medieval vampire beginnings as Lancelot du Lac, and then swiftly moves into present day as our vampire hero begins a new quest for the grail while acting in his capacity as an anti-terrorist consultant to the Canadian government. Mr. Bennett and Ms. Elrod have fashioned vibrant vampire characters that shy away from the evil or demonic creatures usually portrayed in this genre and give us Richard Dunn and the Lady Sabra, vampires that have been created by the Goddess as protectors of light and the old ways of worship. While these vampires still have the expected supernatural traits such as fangs and the need for blood, they are unique in their mystical origins. The renowned saga of the grail is expertly interwoven through the fast-paced and riviting modern-day action drama as Richard searches for the only thing that might save Sabra, and quite possibly himself, from a tragic end. "Keeper of the King" is a satisfying addition to both vampire and Arthurian collections, and it demands a sequel!

THE KEEPER OF THE KING is an excellent addition to vampire lore, well up to the standards of its two authors. The vampire Richard Dunn is not like P.N. Elrod's previous vampires, nor is he a copy of LaCroix, Nigel Bennett's character on FOREVER KNIGHT. He is a new creation, with new strengths and new weaknesses. Richard's love for the Lady Sabra was touching, and his quest to save her exhilerating. The ending (which I will not reveal here) came as a complete surprise. I loved the blending of Arthurian myth and vampire legend. Why had it never occurred to me before that Lancelot du Lac (Lancelot of the Lake) and the Lady of the Lake might have known each other? I hope to see more about Richard Dunn from this talented pair.

First let me state, yeah, I got suckered into buying this book because I am a fan of Forever Knight and Nigel Bennett. I previewed a chapter of the book and thought, "Okay. Sounds interesting enough." Man, was I wrong. Cliche "to the max". The characters were one dimensional and the story was completely transparent. The plot had holes in it big enough to drive a Mack truck through! Although I will give it credit for some ingenuity in combining Celtic mythology/vampirism/Arthurian legend/with a dash of lycanthropy for flavor. That was an interesting brew. But,nevertheless, take my advice, Mr. Bennett, and stick to acting and mouthing other people's words.

It was spectacular. An interesting twist on the vampire legend, one that gives definite origins to the characters. Sensuality is in a vampire's nature, and there is no dearth of that in this book. Also, if you want some pure ear-candy, check the audiobook. Basically, the characters are well-developed, but with room for more complexities to be added on, and an air of mystery surrounding the characters that meks you wonder where all they've been and what all they've done.

This book was very well written. I enjoyed the plot, it was fast paced and exciting. The detail was wonderful; it felt as if I was actually there. I also enjoyed it because it was one of those books that you do not know what the true meaning of everything is until the last few chapters. It was very planned out.

I also enjoyed it because it was a totally new take on vampirism -- one I have never thought of before. It was a fresh look at the myth.

As a fan of the Forever Knight television show, I heard about this book 6 months ago and have been waiting patiently (?) for its release. I have not been disappointed! I can almost hear Nigel's dulcet tones narrating. The language has a decidedly British accent to it, and the story is creatively and deftly woven. Thanks, Nigel and Pat, for the great job!!! I haven't finished the book yet, but could there be a series of books brewing?
