    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 were part of a children s sock puppet show, and no apparent effort was made by the author to even try to portray them as real people They come across as shallow, cliche versions of DD builds, completely lacking personalities They are also, apparently, incapable of simple logic, and their attempts at social interaction are just weird It s almost as if the author were a child trying to write a dialogue between adults, having never really had a serious conversation himself.Another glaring issue is that the author treats female characters few as they are as nothing than sex objects for the main character to admire desire Their descriptions almost always revolve around sexualizing them to the ...

    I haven t completed the book yet, and I m not sure if I will Others said it before, but I ll repeat it again The book has a pretty interesting start but it rapidly declines with cliches and a predictable plot Without spoiling too much, the protagonist is your basic semi overpowered and super naive character He is absurdly naive, to the point it s ridiculous And the whole plot really lacks ingenuity That basically wraps up the main issue I have with Space Knight Otherwise, it s not that bad of a book audiobook With a good narrator, an audiobook is very forgiving in regard to spelling and grammar In short, I don t know if there s a huge problem with the spelling or grammar like some says I do know that this author uses simple, or simpler, writing, which I am totally fine with As for the part about the girls women ladies being sex toys or objects of desires, that s simply the way this author writes his books and he s targeting audience who enjoys that I think I read somewhere about he started writing because he wanted an Adult version of some other book In a sense, no point reading any of this author s book if you have an issue with this Overall, it s not good but it s not that bad either It has some interesting elements It has a few game elements, like numericalized items and a knight oriented class system It blended magic and technology together and resulted in ...

    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 doesn t have any kind of memorable past We know that he s graduating from an academy that normally only accepts rich people We know that he s a poor Outlander with a father who died mysteriously in service to the Crown and a mother who s struggling to make ends meat.And that is literally all there is to the MC His history dictates all of his motivations Moreover, he has no character growth over the entire novel He starts off an excellent fighter, not freezing at all during his first ever real life battle and feeling fai...

    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 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 is supposed to be.2 I kept expecting that this was all going to be a VR game story like Sword Art Online.3 The main character was too skilled He was fresh from the academy and was fighting at an extremely skilled level.4 The friendships seemed wooden.5 The world building was pretty bad I wouldn t have done this bad for a single night RPG The tech is built on magic and this is being taxed so that the military is ...

    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 his sword working again inside the Bulwark Interesting Zac conveniently knows something every time we need the plot to advance And let s not forget that Nick literally gets saved by the Deus Ex Machina at the endWith the number of editors listed in the back, someone should ve caught at least a few of these Just do a better job of editing and most of the above would go away.I ll probably pick up the next, since at least the premise is interesting, bu...

    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.

    Pretty much perfect balance of character actionThis is a very well written book that perfectly satisfies a medieval space theme.Lyons, the main protagonist, is like able but imperfect He is gullible but trying to do the right thing.The action starts just as he is graduating from space knight school, when things go horribly wrong with his graduating class, and he is one of the few survivors.He has mysterious powers, but they are muted and flawed, and often a disadvantage And he has to discover them and learn how to control them, which is an ongoing process.The LitRPG aspects are constrained to a game mechanic style explanation of gear loot found during his adventures This is embedded in the environment as part of the government controlled access to powerful runic devices, which includes restricting less advanced knights to less powerful gear The background motivation of supporting his mother suffering a disadvantaged lifestyle, and the mysterious death of his father who was purported to be a great space knight, but died in action and was always working off the books missions so received no acclaim, are both well trodden tropes, but they work well here and aren t over explained.The main plot arc in this first story, turning down a plumb assignment and instead getting assigned to the worst ship possible , then discovering the worst ship might actually be t...

    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, does notify about new releases and saying they never do is false and deliberately misleading While I have no reason to defend nor attack or the authors, deliberately misleading anyone to sign up for your mailing list doesn t float, and actually that would be something Squire Nick Lyons would be against I think.On to the plot and setting I was a bit confused at the beginning the mishmash of LitRPG elements with RL left me a lost but the well written Narrative didn t leave me over encumbered My readings speed wasn t affected I want to know about this magic and tech it wasn t explained in this book but I will still pick up the sequels when released As far as action it is a satisfying romp A major pitfall is the amount of beautiful women on the ship and how the main character has attracted the attention of all of them, and 2 3rds of them are nobles who are supposed go be stuck up to Outlanders Unfortunately it is a trend among many authors in LitRPG and scif...

    I will quickly admit this book has the unfortunate disadvantage of being read by me after I read Ascend Online months after but still and so my mind immediately compared the two to some degree However, the premise is reasonable, the characters intriguing tho forced and the writing flowed moderately well.Unfortunately again, this fell into the category of overplaying it s foreshadowing which tends to be a pet peeve of mine I don t need an author to dumb down the characters and plot lines in order to make me wonder about the morals of characters or the future scenes I found there was a tendency to restate the possible evils over and over, make our hero incredibly naive and therefore almost childlike, and even toss in some random unnecessary interactions that I m assuming were supposed to be romantic possibilities but that ultimately just felt ...

    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 Nicks In trying to get his assignment changed Nick falls fouls of Duke Barnes but is too naive to see the man for what he is He believes that he has an assignment from his Queen through the Duke So he finds himself on the Stalwart, a ship made up of old ship parts and considered the worst ship in the fleet According to the Duke and his minion Sorcerer Polgar, the crew of Stalwart are insurrectionists and rebels Nick realises that this is not true and he begins to doubt his mis...
