Ben is a really bright, funny and sarcastic kid. At times he shows his age, while others, he seems to have aged a number of years. He is forced to mature in order to deal with the reality of his world and the fact that if he isn't careful, he could end up dead instead of back home. I like how the story is interspersed with old bits of technology from our time and that people use these things as paperweights or decoration, even though they don't work or are broken. R. Jackson-Lawrence has written a vivid, realistic world with characters that the reader can understand and actually care about. When there is drama and heartache in the story, the reader feels it. There is real loathing and a great dislike for the foe in the story; lookout he's a real bastard. The story is not complete in the first book and leaves you with a cliffhanger. You know what is coming in the next book can't be good news for Ben and his friends. You just hope that whatever happens, that Ben will find his happy ending and be able to return home. Though, I'm not too sure that he may still want to after what he has seen and the friends he has made in this world. Looking forward to book #2.
The characters were all equally enjoyable. Ben is a very likeable character, young, but smart. Even though he's thrown into a new world, he still has a curiosity to explore and learn. Supporting characters were just as great. Carl was definitely one of my favorites, along with Matthew and Catrina. The antagonist, who I won't name, was a great villain. You could see the evil every time you read about him, but at the same time there was almost a shred of humanity there as well.
There is very little to complain about in Knightfall. There were some grammatical errors, but none that pull you out of the story. My only other complaint would be that I wanted more out of some aspects of the book. I wanted to know more about the experiment in the beginning and who the mercenaries were. I wanted to know more about a couple of the characters, and I was a little confused about whether Ben had been transported into a far distant future, or into another dimension of sorts. Now understand that this is the first book of a series, so Jackson may reveal more about these things in the second book or after. Like I said, these are minor complaints.
Knightfall is a fantastic start to the Chronicle of Benjamin Knight. I'm very anxious to see what happens next. Anyone who enjoys fantasy, science fiction, or overall just a damned good story needs to read this book.
This is an excellent start to a series. You have your main character, MC, who is young and just tossed into a world that is familiar and yet strange. And as he slowly adapts to this new world, he comes to the realization that he can't go home again and must now make some hard choices in growing up.
Now, don't get me wrong, I liked the premise and idea of this novel. BUT...I got one huge peeve. Mr. Jackson, if you bring in a fairly important character,...but then ignore that character completely for 140 + pages, yes I tracked that using the wonderful feature of the Kindle. That is a huge continuity break. GAH!! I looked up the character name and then saw where it later appeared....it was 140 + pages before the character even started having page time again. wow. And it wasn't as if this side character was off away from the MC, nope, this character was in the same group and yet...we don't hear a peep from them.
I do hope you don't do this to the next sequel. This is the reason why I didn't give you a 5.
Other than that huge break, I think this novel and this idea does have some great potential.
You write. And write well, and I will buy.
