"It is very infrequent that I have troubleputting a book down. This was one of them. The characters really came to life,the battle scenes were vivid, and tactically it made sense...The author's firsttwo books were great. This one was Fantastic. Mr. Thater must be hiding amilitary or secret agent background, because the intrigue and the battle feltso real." ---Mountain Dweller (an Amazon reviewer)

Damn you, Glenn...thebest book of the (first) three books of The Harbinger of Doom Saga and theywere all excellent reads. Once you start one you cannot put it down...

Like his first book, Harbinger of Doom (made up of two stories - The Gateway & The Fallen Angle), this is, in my opinion, truly excellent fantasy literature. Many of the themes will be be familiar to fans of the fantasy genre, but it's possible that's because the ancient lore these books are derived from predates many other fantasy stories. Perhaps the intriguing and highly entertaining stories of the intensely mysterious and powerful Angle Theta were amongst of the original sources of inspiration for these later tales. It is obvious to me the appeal of these tales and why they lived on.
I am not exaggerating when I say that excellence is in every part of this book - from the dialogue, the settings, the pacing, the plot, to the overall feel of the story. There is not one word that is extraneous or out of place, there is never any place where I wish there had been more description, or better description, better flow, or more excitement. The characters are all clearly drawn out with palpable presences and personalities - my two faves are Ob the Gnome, and Lord Angle Theta, who continuously simmers with nearly unmatched power, danger, and deep mystery. The dialogue is crisp & witty, humorous at times, and always meaningful. The stakes are high and the journey is wild and unpredictable. The story is perfectly put together and, I think, should be read by every fan of the fantasy genre - I mean this all sincerely. It is a classic in the making.
***Possible spoiler alerts - next paragraph only***
What is really surprising & completely refreshing is that near the end of the book, the story is switched over to the bad guys' point of view, and absolutely everything is upended. The reader is then left questioning if they have it backwards, maybe those are actually the good guys (though ultimately, everyone does bad things, no one is blame-free, but everything seems to have solid motivations). This sets this book (and its predecessors) apart from most other stories. It is revelatory, and so incredibly well done, I am enthralled by it. I am not sure who the good guys are, plus there are many shades of grey, and what an agonizing treat for the reader that is. The possibilities this leaves are so tantalizing that I have never wanted to read a sequel so bad. Ever!
***End spoiler alerts***
One thing is important to mention - the story ends suddenly, very suddenly. It really is the first half of a full story. I didn't realize this about the book, there were pages left, but they turned out to be the glossary, so it caught me by surprise. I dearly hope the next instalment will be released post haste!
To wrap it up, Knight Eternal is brilliant storytelling in every possible way. So much so, that I want to read every single tale about Angle Theta that has ever existed. Highly recommended!

While the author is known for not adding "fluff" to his descriptions and stories, he makes sure that there is more than enough detail to paint a good picture of the world they live in. My only compalint is the lenght of the book, while this is about twice the size of either the first or second book, I had wished it was longer, especially upon reaching the ending which left me with a feeling the story should not have ended there. I look forward to the authors next book.
I would like the series more if they bundled more of the books together at a discounted price.
This book is very good on all fronts. Worth the pain of reading Gateway to get to this one.
