Wow, where to start with this one?

This is a story that tells of a world within a world, separated by a Veil, but only one world knows of the existence of the other. The world within has gone the way of natural energy, low impact and magic; the other has gone towards technology. However, they are both reaching breaking point with Mother Nature and as it deteriorates in one world, it creates storm which are destroying the other. There is war in the making and as with all wars, there are casualties. The one you first learn about is Rydan, Arieana's brother. It is him dying that makes her cross the Veil to try to find and retrieve his soul. So let the story commence.

This story is built, layer upon layer, weaving magic, mystery, fantasy and environmental concerns all into one amazing story. It is definitely one to keep and to re-read, as well as getting the rest in the series to continue the adventure. It starts of quite simple but grows into a story of epic proportions, on both sides of the Veil.

Who would I recommend this book to? Anyone and Everyone!
If you like fantasy - read it!
If you like mystery - read it!
Like "Green" books - read this one!

This is an interesting story concept concerning environmental consequences for two different dimensions on planet earth. At one time, both dimensions lived in harmony on one plane. However, this fact has been hidden since the Veil was erected between the human world and the more earth friendly magical world by the Elementals who guard pieces of a weapon of mass destruction. The council of the magical realm blames humans across the Veil for environmental disturbances in both realms and seeks to put an end to the human realm. The action is fast-paced with some surprising twists in the plot as secrets and conspiracies are revealed. The author does a nice job setting up her magical realm and describing the way of life in that dimension. Arieana is a strong female lead with some surprising powers; I enjoyed her character a lot. I even enjoyed Sorien Jacobs, an archaeologist she forges an alliance with, even though he is no Indiana Jones.

I do believe this story would benefit from another round of editing. From content editing to cut down on the repetition and to weave a tighter story, to copy editing to clean up some sentence structure, and finally another round of proofing to clean up extra or missing words. I believe the story here is worth the investment.

Arieana's brother is killed by her own people in a world not their own. She is forced to break an ancient law and cross the veil into the human world, to find her brother's soul. Once across the veil, she finds out that there are others from her world who want to destroy the human world, as they blame the humans for the devastating storms which are tearing her world apart.
Ariana is forced into an unlikely alliance with Sorien Jacobs, an archaeologist who has been sent to the Atacama Desert after the untimely death of his friend and mentor. Together they must work together to gather the clues to stop the renegades and save mankind, before time runs out for both worlds.

This is a beautifully woven story, which tells of two worlds that live side by side. There is Ariana's world, which is peaceful. The people use magic and work in harmony with nature. Then there is Earth, filled with humankind who exploit the natural resources and are damaging the environment with their machines. The two worlds are separated by a magic veil. When Ariana's brother is killed by her own people on the human side of the veil, she defies the law so that she can retrieve her brother's soul.
Ariana is a fantastic character. She wields magic that is extremely powerful and dangerous. I certainly wouldn't want to get on to her bad side! However, she loves her brother very much and seeks revenge on his murderers. When she crosses the veil and meets Sorien, she finds out that the elders in her world had not been entirely truthful about the past. She also finds out that her brother had a secret too.

The media, fuelled by environmental scientists, is ever-increasingly on at us all to care more about the world we live in and urges us to be wary of the consequences of exploiting its finite resources. Some of us take it very seriously, and some have a devil-may-care attitude believing their own lifetime is perfectly safe...

....but what if there was another world which bore the brunt of the effects of our selfishness? What if the inhabitants of that world suffered directly from the way we continue to use and abuse what nature has given us freely and liberally? What if the inhabitants of that world are forced to enter ours and seek revenge for our unwitting destruction of theirs? The two worlds share, not only essential resources, but also an inability of those who rule to agree on the best remedial approach. As a result, a young girl, Arieana's, brother is killed by a militant faction amongst his own people and Arieana is forced into `our' world to seek vengeance for his death.

However, she encounters much more than obstacles in the way of her resolve. She discovers, after meeting an enthusiastic archaeologist, that her world has a history kept secret by those who govern it, the key to which are some crucial ancient relics - crucial because they will be fundamental in saving mankind. The acquisition of these relics becomes a race as the militants are after them too - for much more devastating reasons.

This is definitely a book with a message - a very topical, serious and important message. It's artfully interwoven into a story with some very determined characters and a tense and climactic ending. Scientists may try to instil in us the cause and effect of our devastation of natural resources, but Robyn gets you thinking on quite another dimension.

HASH(0x99d8424c) out of 5 stars Keepers of Water by R. G. Porter 24 Mar. 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Keepers of Water" explores the concept of two different worlds sharing one space. Two worlds interdependent but only one world knowing the other exists.

But what happens if the world that is so blindly unaware of the other is beginning to inadvertently destroy the hidden world. How would you make contact across the veil that separates the worlds without bringing a more militarily advanced world civilisation into your own. Would you be able to stop the destruction of both worlds?

Ariena is about to cross over into the world of the others. The world that does not know she and her people share a common planet and fate with theirs. People that she and her people are afraid of.

Arieana knows that there are those of her kind who have entered the other world. People who have decided the best way to solve the problem is destroy the civilisation that is impeding her own. She must not only stop them, she must find out the plan before it is too late. Just as urgently she must bring the soul of her brother home. Her brother who was chasing the rebels and defending the others. Killed by her own kind. His death ignored by the counsel and unavenged.

R. G. Porter has created parallel universes that are familiar and yet shrouded in mystery. A story which speaks to the current questions we have about our environment and how we care for it. A novel that pits radical solutions to problems against those who would take a slower approach. It is an interesting interpretation and worth reading and thinking about.

The characters are interesting, well formed with good back stories and the action begins right at the start drawing us into the initial skirmishes in the battle to come. The world of her fantasy is complex and realist with just enough information to draw us in but not so much that we can't suspend our disbelief.

HASH(0x99d846d8) out of 5 stars A Thought Provoking but Extremely Entertaining Read! 8 April 2012
By Lynn Worton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Arieana's brother is killed by her own people in a world not their own. She is forced to break an ancient law and cross the veil into the human world, to find her brother's soul. Once across the veil, she finds out that there are others from her world who want to destroy the human world, as they blame the humans for the devastating storms which are tearing her world apart.

Ariana is a fantastic character. She wields magic that is extremely powerful and dangerous. I certainly wouldn't want to get on to her bad side! However, she loves her brother very much and seeks revenge on his murderers. When she crosses the veil and meets Sorien, she finds out that the elders in her world had not been entirely truthful about the past. She also finds out that her brother had a secret too.
This story has a powerful message about how humans are basically killing the planet with their greed for more of Mother Nature's resources; Mother Nature is trying to restore the balance by creating powerful storms. These are the storms that are affecting Ariana's world. However, there is also interwoven into this message a fantastic fantasy/mystery/adventure that kept me hooked. It is not a very long story, as there are only 183 pages, but R. G. Porter has created a mixture of fact and fiction that thoroughly entranced me, and made me think. I am now looking forward to reading the remaining books in this series, as I am dying to know what happens next! I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a good fantasy story with a dash of mystery and adventure mixed in with the paranormal.

For some reason I could not put this book down. I don't know if it was the story line , the characters, or something else entirely but IN read it almost straight through. I've never read anything like this and it was really good. Hopefully there is a sequel coming!

HASH(0x99d84a50) out of 5 stars A timely entertaining read! 23 Jun. 2012
By alan nayes - Published on Amazon.com

KEEPERS OF WATER is not only a well crafted story rife with characters you care about, a creative original plot, and descriptive scenes, but the novel is almost an allegory of what is going on in our world today. First the story--there are two parallel worlds that are intimately connected. When Arieana's brother is murdured on Earth, Arieana decides she will break her rulers' laws and seek revenge for his killing by entering the Earth world to find his killers. Arieana soon discovers, though, that there are more of her species that wish to kill all humans because Arieana's kind believe humans are responsible for the devastation affecting her world. How? And this is where the allegory comes into play. Humans are slowly destroying their/our world by ransacking Earth's natural resources, polluting the water and air, and destroying the forests. Unbeknownst to humans though, what they do on Earth is affecting Arieana's world--sending devastating storms that threaten to wipe out her world. So now she must not only try to seek justice for her brother's killers, she must also try to save the destruction of mankind because she believes there is a better solution to both Earth's and her worlds problems--especially after she learns her rulers have not been truthful about her kinds past. Along the way she also discovers her brother also had a secret that will profoundly affect her and she meets Sorien an earthling who she teams up with. Arieana is a fun character with magical powers that will leave you cheering when she unleashes them. R G Porter's KEEPERS OF WATER is an entertaining read--part allegory, part fantasy, part mystery and part sci-fi. If you relish good fast reads (and believe we are not doing enough to conserve our resources), pick up a copy of KEEPERS OF WATER. Just don't get on Arieana's bad side!
