My final picky complaint concerns the results of Elan being struck by the flat to the monster general's magical sword. She flies through the air, hits a one foot thick tree and shatters through the tree. Her armor protects her. She has the wind knocked out of her is momentarily stunned and has some bruised ribs. REALLY? Have you ever seen a pitcher of a car that has hit a tree? I live in Colorado, lots of skiing, people who hit trees don't hurt the trees they die. Even if her armor could protect her, the velocity required to propel a solid object trough a one foot tree is far more than could be supplied by the flat of even a magical blade wielded by a monster.
One reviewer complained that the book couldn't decide what it wanted to be - fantasy, scifi or religious fiction. I found that really an interesting take when you get right down to it religion = mythology for the most part and this book is attempting to span some of our favorite myths (Atlantis) and early religions.
Another complaint was the amount of violence - I'd ask - why are you reading a series entitled "The Atlantis Wars"? Violence and war has made up the bulk of human history since humans recorded history. I will grant that there are some very explicit scenes in this book that might be disturbing but it's not the entire book, which is why I didn't rate it entirely graphic violent. But the violence is in service of the story and not gratuitous.
I liked this book and look forward to the next in the series.
Knighthood starts a bit slow but builds to a satisfactory conclusion. As with most of Evan's stories there is always another chapter that is ready to unfold. I have found that his character development is quite satisfying and I am always amazed at how is protagonists are usually strong female characters. Knighthood is no exception. I am ready for the next chapter.
