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.

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

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.

The sequel was better than the first book (eve: empyrean age). It helps to read the first book to be able to understand this one. When reading the first book, I'd suggest writing down who the four major civilizations are so you can keep it straight (maybe even writing down the major players of each civilization). In a nutshell, multiple star-faring civilizations battling it out using cloning technology that makes some of them "immortal." But the characters managed to become more approachable, despite the increase in action, in this second book.

My Reveiw Might Be nothing to those EVE players out there. I pick This book up for 2 Reasons, The opening for Dust 514 Made me go Hmm one to many times. The second My Husband recommended the read to me. The Start of the book had me hooked. Then it became a bit slow. At times I was bad talking a character or race, why other times I wanted to take certain characters home with me nad give them some TLC. Templar One did pick up, and I was completely suck in. This genre is not my normal cup of tea. Though in the end I am happy that I have read it.
