Shadow and Clerical magic require audio noise i. Overall, the story was great and it really did build on a lot of what was written in the Knights Dawn I think once the trilogy is finished I feel it will flow perfectly as I said above the prequel trilogy most likely will cover the time leading up to and the 1st Alignment.
Melkar followed his mom's path, which is not surprising though I had a minor hope he would turn out better. However, since he never became Duke, I assumed he would be, I do not really mind him becoming the main villian. Belor went from a small kid that loved cheese and son of a Baron to the Duke which worked out great. Maggie's she is not in the book, but her daughter Anna is. There is a side character named Maggie mentioned, but she is a grandchild or great grandchild of the original Maggie son in law restored her family back too peerage becoming a Baron.
Though, it is not mentioned if Anna even knew her mom Maggie was actually the daughter and heir of a Baron. Other than some side mentions nothing came up about the Kingdom of the Mists and Galen's son who by now is probaly the King of that Kingdom now. I also, wonder what happened to Caspia?
She was the most powerful nation 50 years ago, and is not even mentioned now other than the fact she exists. It is like she became isolationists, is in a civil war, or fell apart Mr Van Aulen wrote an excellent work set a world divided between the powers of light verses darkness using swords and magic. Many years in the past the Elder Knight loved then lost his beloved to his brother. In seeking vengeance for the transgression he runs afoul of the powerful Earth Mother and is cursed to roam without a place of happiness or love. Darkness arose leading to a hunt of the Royal family for the resulting dire evil magic.
Can the knight earn his freedom, save the day and his world, this is the Tale of the Elder Knight. I enjoyed the reading, it is a very good story but it left me disappointed.. I rate it a four because it should have been a stand alone with the resolution of both Galen and Rose rather than a cliff hanger.
Cliffhangers are the single reason I give up on books. I absolute strongly abhor them. Forsooth, the Elder Knight has created a chain of events that affects the lives of many generations. Not just humans but wizards, shadow gates, earth mothers, weavers and water maidens His "Lady Rose " sword cuts a swath through evil elements as you, the reader, are captured to finish the great book. I was exhausted at the end, and anxious for the sequel. Sure wish the author got an editor or proof reader, that would make reading his books easier. This is a excellent adventure story.
I am eagerly awaiting the next installment. Its fast paced, intricate sub-plots and keeps you guessing. The right touch of fantasy, magic, balance between good and evil in competing universes. I loved this book full of action a litter mysterious, all in all a really good to read. One of the best things is it didn't have all that scenery stuff.

Mike Collins finds himself a graduate of the prestigious Harper's Military Academy stranded on Austro Prime serving the embattled United Earth Confederations' fleet with no ability to escape the strangle hold of the Blues Karduans and the sudden neutrality of the Austro Prime Government.
Mr Collins joins a group of 'old wolves' and begins his career by taking a partially derelict warship. Mr Mike Collins follows in the footsteps of David Farragut; Horatio Nelson; John Paul Jones or Horatio Hornblower in the attempt to rejoin the Confederations' war effort in this fast paced well written book of future naval warfare.
Thank you Shane Van Aulen for the wonderful trip into deep space and history of the Navy. Looking forward to future "Logs of the Gray Wolf. Absolutely engaging, exciting read. I had a hard time putting this one down! Major VanAulen has become one of my favorite authors. What a great movie this would make are you listening Hollywood? I can't wait to start reading the sequel. I enjoyed this book a lot. The author could use a good editor, however.
Using "break" when he's talking about slowing down a vehicle just detracts from the flow of the story. Inserts of historical military history are fun, as is the martial arts commentary. The story is well constructed, and engrossing even with the occasional clumsy sentence structure and word goofs. The main Character is likable, the story is well set and the combat is fun and inventive. The Romance is simple and it doesn't fog up the plot.
The only beef i have with this book is that the repairs and resource attainment of the protagonist and his companions is dummied down to this is fixable or this is will be done and so on and so forth. It isn't a big turnoff but it is a slight irritation for people like me who like to see a little more character in these locales. Otherwise this is an awesome book with tons of fun and action. I am looking forward to the next book. This is a great story with lots of intriguing action and adventure.
I find that the author has captured the the essence of the characters. This sort of reminds me of Star Trek in a way as a group of old veterans and military graduates and students commandeer an old ship called Star Wolf and seek out the Conferderation ships as the military base port of Austro Prime is taken over and soon war breaks out with a group of aliens all trying to surive. Great book, loved the plot from the get go. I was able to ignor what I assume were computer spelling corrections and typos at the beginning and sparse later on.
These I assume will be corrected in later revisions. I highly recommend this book and the sequel! See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Marred by poor copyediting. Published 2 months ago. Published 3 months ago. Published 4 months ago.
