Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Templr One is a direct continuation of the plot of Empyrean Age with the same characters, however without describing them. This book is more focused on describing the technology of Dust 514 instead of the actual plot or character development. Templar One is tightly bound to Empyrean Age and may not be considered an independant story, since the relationships between characters, which formed during the events of the Empyrean Age, are very briefly commented. If you are unfamilliar with the EvE Online universe, this one will seem to you as a confusing novel with blank characters and weak plot.

Tony Gonzales has done it again. He has written an incredible sequel to a grand setup that was The Empyrean Age. He has set a new standard for video game fiction and set the tone of the universe in which thousands of players enjoy. The combat is well written, he has tied many separate story strings together, and he still surprises you.

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.

This is not merely a book based on a video game, it is a fictional work that elevates itself and it's subject matter, Eve Online, to an accessible and thrilling form of art. You do not need to play the game to enjoy the book, but doing so has an element of enrichment to it. Likewise, you don't have to read this book if you play the game, but again, the experience will add depth to your online experience.

Although independent of each other, I highly suggest reading the first novel, The Empyrean Age before this.

Tony Gonzales manages to create high political drama, space opera tragedy and amiable characters into a tale that moves a very pleasant pace. It is Eve, and the reality at play here are cruel, so if that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, maybe pass. But if you've accepted the fact that life in space would be harsh on those attempting to carve out a deeper life, you'll appreciate Gonzales' firm plot direction and his ability to wrap up the story with all the melancholy befitting his characters' lives which are marked by startling brilliance and bitter woe.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The author did a good job of weaving the various story lines together so that everything really fell in to place at the end. I really felt like I was able to enter the characters shoes and feel like a part of the story. If you are a fan of the MMO Eve Online or just a fan of good Sci Fi I would recommend this book.
