Templar One is an engaging addition to the Eve universe, and qualifies as the best EVE book yet. While it isn't as grand in scale as its predecessor, Empyrean age, its a lot more personal. The characters are much more engaging and fun to read about this time around, especially Mack. The action is incredibly well written and truly awesome to behold, and the plot is incredibly well-executed, filled with twists and turns that will keep you hooked until the very end. More importantly, the book does the near-impossible job of presenting all EVE factions in an equal light and letting you choose who to root for, just like in the game. For EVE players its a treat, and I also recommend this to any science fiction fans.

If I had to sum up my opinion of this book in one word, I would go with "workmanlike". The characters are competently written, the plot competently executed. It's not the best book I've read, but neither is it anywhere close to the worst.

This book tells the story how the immortal soldiers - soon to be playable in DUST 514 for PS3 - came to be; this includes some revelatory information about the origins of the Sleepers which is one of the high points of the book.

If you're interested in the background lore of EVE Online/DUST 514, I recommend you give this a read. If you aren't, then you can safely give this a miss.

As an EVE fan, I liked this book a lot more than the other two. It is pretty tied to the first EVE novel (Empyrian Age), so make sure to read that one before reading this book. The battle scenes were well written, and the plot was a lot more believable than the other novels.

I really enjoyed reading Tony's new novel. Reading it, I felt like I was watching a really great action sci-fi film that I wanted to be a part of.

If you like your space operas large and bold;

If you like despicable characters that grow on you;

If you want multiple fleets trying to kill each other in space and on planets;

If you like technologically enhanced beings almost unrecognizable as a human;

If you like a secret group doing oversight on all the characters and controlling what they do behind the scenes you WILL LOVE THIS BOOK.

Part of the EVE series this book stands on it's own for plot and character development. No need to read previous books in the series - although I recommend highly that you do.

The story line is that consensus exists that an immortal warrior would decrease the human toll in the many wars, both civil, planetary and star system wide. At least it's consensus within the framework of the book. The combatants include Empress Jamyl of the Amarr, Mordu's Legion of mercenaries for hire, the Federation Fleet, the Ashkone and the Caldari.

Everyone is out for themselves and to stop the others from creating an immortal warrior. When one of the groups suceed the race is on to capture the immortal warrior, called Templar One, and reverse engineer the process for personal gain.

Of course the group that created Templar One knows there is a significant problem associated with the process and is determined to stop the other groups from stealing their technology, regardless of it's flaws.

It all comes to a shocking conclusion in an epic battle in space and on Make System - Planet II: Pikes Landing .

Finally, as a technological bonus to you, the book has QR Code Content built in. Just use your smart phone and additional information becomes available to you. This is not necessary to read the book but just an added bonus

VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Format: Paperback
As the title stated: this is a fantastic book.

Cast: The cast in this book is too numerous to go into detail. Suffice it to say that each character that is mentioned and used in the book has a direct or indirect influence to the over arching storyline.

Plot: This storyline effectively fits into CCP's Dust 514 game idea and establishes the overall development of the first immortal super soldiers that does not need the empreyan technology we Eve capsuleers use.
This book is about who developed the very first immortal super soldier and the race by the other factions to attain the same technology before they are overrun.

But that is not all. there is a dark cost to this new immortality.

Overall evaluation: The book is a fantastic read about the Eve universe and an upcoming development. The ideas and concepts in the book were not just action packed but also philosophical in nature. The cost of a few immortal caspuleers to the New Eden cluster was especially interesting.

Only quirk: The book different only slightly from the Eve Online Inferno intro video.

I was a bit disappointed after reading "The Burning Life" (not by this author, but set in the Eve universe). This book really got my attention after that! An excellent sequel, better than the first book, though it truly is a sequel and the characters are continued from "Empyrean Age." The back story for the characters is not really explained, so reading the enjoyable "Empyrean Age" is recommended.

Te story was readable, exciting, and had an interesting set of events for the climax. Like other reviews have said, the background information for EVE fans makes this a fascinating and revealing "must-read" and really is a great aspect of the book. The description of both land and space battles is crisp, with action and enough detail to make it fascinating without so much detail so as to sound like a game manual.

Excellent book, good even for non-EVE fans, especially if you pick up "Empyrean Age" first.
