    One thought on “Space Knight”

    1. There are so many things wrong with this book that I find it difficult to decide what to start with.For one thing, it's written at a grade 6 level. The grammar and word choice left me shaking my head every other paragraph. I find it troubling that some people are reviewing it as being a brilliant, 5 star worthy novel. This is a 2-star book at best, if only by virtue of the spelling and grammar mistakes the author makes throughout it.The dialogue is also hilariously BAD. It's as if the characters [...]

    2. Interesting beginning, poor follow through The bad things:This book hooked me from the beginning, mostly because I was curious why the main character was such a bad ass. I was expecting some kind of secret dark past or the like.Instead, I found that he was incredibly OP For seemingly no reason.In general, I like reading books with OP characters with interesting goals and back stories. The problem is, the main character, along with every other characters, are cookie cutter archetypes. The MC does [...]

    3. Entertaining story - but pitfalls aboundI downloaded this book from kindle unlimited because I was running out of things to read. I had visited this page a couple if times but each visit decided against the book due to the extreme overselling of the story on this page. Usually when someone tries so hard to hype up the product it is because it is lacking.Luckily this book is not one of those cases. I recommend toning down the summary and sales pitch for the second book. Also note to the authors, [...]

    4. Excellent YA coming of age story.We first meet Nicholas Lyons (Nick or Nicky) as a cadet of the RTF on his last training assignment before graduating as a Squire. Something goes wrong with the exercise and Nick is the only fighter who survives. I say this as he saves another cadet who did nothing but cower behind anyone who could save him! Ludas Barnes is the son of a duke and a sneaky little rodent. Somehow he takes on the part of the hero and takes the plum appointment that should have been Ni [...]

    5. Reads like an author's first book from high schoolI'm sorry, but I feel that reading this book was a waste of time. However, I think that some of the characters and dialog show promise for the future.1. The book read more like a role-playing game than a science fantasy book. The weapon descriptions kept saying things like "+5% base damage." The worst was an axe that had an increase in damage proportional to the damage the axe had sustained. IMHO, this is a bad magic system for a book like this i [...]

    6. Let me start by saying Michael-Scott Earle has become my Favorite wordsmith for 2018. You know the DUDE is a TRUE storyteller when you blaze through 500+ pages in less than a day. I usually can do a book a day, maybe 400 pages. (HONESTY Note wife and I are baby boomers, both disabled and mobility is main problem. General TV plainly SUCKS big time, so we read).This is a Space Operain character wants to become a Space Knight, like his father. His goal to serve his Queen and support his widowed mot [...]

    7. This was a bit of a slog to get through, especially as a LitRPG. Nothing is believable. Why would such a secretive crew welcome a new member that's clearly looking for information on the crew. What about this 06:00 daily timeframe of reporting that is required. Or the fact that you have a novice who's apparently the best fighter, tactician and strategist around, able to take everything and anything and come out on top.There's also a lot of inconsistencies within the book. At the end, he's got hi [...]

    8. Good story,oNot so good editing. Zac had his helmet removed twice in one paragraph. He never put it back on to have it taken off the second time. He sees a fellow crewmember naked and goes from looking at her to magically turning around after she is dressed. Also she didn't seem to be the slightest bit shocked or worried to find a man she barely knows standing in her room as she exits the shower. The entire scene added nothing to the story and was not needed. At one point the MC was chocking an [...]

    9. Space Knight is "Knights of the Round Table set in a space, but much bloodier. .Warhammer 40k, but with more heart. Star Wars, but without the midi-chlorians."Yup, that manufacturer's blurb pretty much sums up the feel of this book, and if you found it appealing it's pretty much a "lock" that you'll love this book. It's a great tale, with wonderful universe-building by the authors (high tech and powerful magic on a grand "space opera" scale), and with a hero, Nicholas Lyons, who starts out in a [...]

    10. Strange but GoodHmm. Cross Shadowrun with Warhammer 40K, then add in a bit of “Master and Commander”, finishing with a pinch of SF LitRPG, and you’re gonna get something like this. On the upside it’s new and interesting, well conceived and edited, and not stat-padded (especially character stats). In the downside it faltered a bit out of the gate, most of the characters and action have little depth, and the protagonist is one of the most naive kids that I’ve ever seen. (I mean wow.) Hav [...]

    11. Wow! Fast paced action that grabs you and dosent let you go. We follow Nick as he graduates as a squire into the RTF (Royal Trident Forces). Nick becomes a hero when a training mission goes wrong. Hoping to get a preferred assignment, he is instead placed on the worst ship in the fleet. Nick soon finds himself questioning who he is, and where his loyalties lie. I loved this book! The characters had heart, and were relatable, while the world feels lived in filled with history and lore. I enjoyed [...]

    12. Good, but not greatIt was by no means a bad book.I enjoyed the characters, the universe, and how the story played out.I took off one star because there are just enough grammar mistakes to throw me off and make me unhappy. There's not a lot, just enough.I took off the other star because I was expecting something a bit more complex? Mature? Based on another novel by one of the authors, The Destroyer series, I was expecting something a bit moreAgain, not a bad book, I was just personally expecting [...]

    13. Nice read.I enjoyed this book, it was a good read. The description was a bit misleading though, there is very little litrpg content in this. It is alluded to and vaguely made use of to limit the main characters strength by restricting what equipment he can use. There is no leveling. Regardless of this oversight within the description this book is entertaining, just don't go for the litrpg.

    14. This was a pretty good Sci-Fi/Fantasy blending with just a touch of LITRPG in the form of it's gear system and a general tone similar to, if a few shades lighter than, the Warhammer 40k books.If your willing to overlook some character and plot issues it's a fun read with a lot of colorful characters and interesting concepts. But your going to have to suffer through some head scratching character decisions along the way. If you can do that, this is a fun book.

    15. Another Good BookI Loved the premise of the RuneTech and Knights and Squires and the Medevile(SP?)LOL theme. The only thing I didn't like about the book was it's Cover Art, which has always been a Personal Peeve with me that Cover Art shows a Character or something and there is NOTHING like it in the book. If the Cover was of Nick, that wasn't a Long Sword and I Just Think that anyone who does the Cover Art for a Book SHOULD HAVE TO READ IT FIRST.

    16. Really GoodI liked the high fantasy feel of this space opera. I have not read other operas but if they are like this, I have found a glorious new genre! It has a small litrpg elements but is not a game. I really enjoyed the new take this book took and will read the others in the series.

    17. Something newThis new book from Michael-Scott Earle is definitely something special. It introduces a brand new concept of how the world turns out. It’s full of magic and aliens, and yet is based in the same universe we know ourselves. Just in the future.Definitely a great choice of book for some entertainment.

    18. It has some good momentsThe book was a quick read, both from the clarity and coherence of the story, and from the conciseness of the narrative forms used. The antagonists were so plainly written that readers might identify them early on, but it doesn’t make the story less enjoyable. Would love to see if there would be better twists and turns in the following books

    19. A very enjoyable first volume to what promises to be a worthy series. Sort of a Dungeons and Dragons in space genre. Magic is now incorporated into technology due to a long war with supernatural beings called Grendels who appear out of rifts. Humanity uses magic based off their technology in the form of runes of power that turn swords and armor into arcane weaponry.

    20. An excellent piece of writing with action from start to finish. In an age where magic runes enable entire space fleets and armoured knights to exist with varied magic abilities the political landscape opens up endless opportunities and problems for one recently graduated squire.The main characters are very lifelike and the encouraged comradeship makes for an engaging story to follow.

    21. Wonderful Cross-genre Sword & Sorcery Dynastic Space OperaThis is a great cross-genre novel, with elements of a dynastic space opera as well as sword and sorcery. This imaginative universe supports both technology and magic, and they interact in surprising fashion. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    22. Enjoyable sci-fi mystic romp.Enjoyable sci-fi mystic romp. Draws you in starts at a medium pace then takes off never stopping. Main character is likeable yet human. Thoroughly enjoyed this first of hopefully many romps.

    23. Livro de capa e espada, com bastante ação, mágica e ficção científica, ambientado no espaço.Não é de tirar o fôlego, mas eu gostei.Bem escrito.Cloak-and-dagger book, with plenty of action, magic and science fiction, set in space.It's not breathtaking, but I like itWell written.

    24. MehIf you are two or so you might enjoy this completely predictable peace of drivel. The story arc is fairly flat and you can see every slight turn coming from a couple years away. Bad editing, dropped words, the usual. Good luck, but don't quit your day job.

    25. Space and knights wonderful mix A great story mixing knights with space two of my favourite things. This story takes you on a journey through space but gives you the feeling it's all real. Loved the pace and really looking forward to reading more

    26. Sailing in SpaceSwashbuckling in space. A tale that could have been set in the 1600 but was set in space instead. Good light reading that allows you to cheer for the hero's and despise the villians.

    27. Great storyThis is a great story with wonderful characters and lots of action and adventure. I can't wait until the next book comes out. If you like great space opera this book is for you.

    28. Non stop adrenaline rideFrom the first page to the last this book is a non stop adrenaline ride. If you enjoy a story that doesn't hold any punches when it comes to action you've got to read this book.

    29. Excellent book :-)This book truly exceeded my expectations! Kudos to the author, as, in my eyes, this is the first true blend of Space Marines and LitRPG which reads naturally and is perfectly believable in all its science and intricacies. Congratulations!

    30. Great new world!Incredibly good new story by Michael-Scott Earle, great world, great characters, bad guys you want to punch in the face, good guys you would not encounter in a dark alley great book!
