Started reading this book a couple days ago and ended up pulling an all-nighter to finish it. Filled with politics, power, deception, control and some darn good battles. Lots of them. From grappling hooks and flying through the air to deep underground along mining shafts, the quest to seize and then take back Centara kept me turning the page. Again and again until the wee hours of day peeked its head over the horizon and the dog demanded a walk. While science fiction in genre, military/battle enthusiasts will also enjoy this book as factions connive and compete for resources they lack the skill to grow, mine, harness and create themselves. The apparent differences between the different groups, while easily 'told’ to us are instead described in the details. From the ignorance of ‘modern conveniences’ to the ‘snootiness’ of the academics and elites, I could have easily been reading a modern story that takes place in a developing nation. This is a great story. Well done. Highly recommended and I do look forward to checking out some of Mr. Lim’s other stories. Many thanks for the time well spent.

The Starfall Knight is a fantasy story like no other. The main characters, Alessa and Devan, live on Aerocks. Aeroks are best described as floating rock formations that span the sky as far as the eye can see. Devan is a ranger and a protector of his home. Alessa is more long sighted and seeks a life off the Aerocks.

The world that Lim creates in the pages of The Starfall Knight is truly amazing. The descriptions are vivid and it makes for an exciting read. If you're a fan of fantasy novels and enjoy the genre, this one is certainly one to check out!

Ken Lim is a self-published writer living in Melbourne, Australia who writes speculative fiction writer and is a life-long reader of fantasy. When he's not crafting stories, Ken geeks out on gaming, movies and TV. Though his writing really began with the five series creation called The Fae Liaison Initiative, The Starfall Knight is his first novel in a new epic saga. He now has published another book The Steelbound Sun. Not much information about the author is available except an occasional note from Lim who states, `The author of these books supposedly translated them from the original Selaren, somewhat like how Robert E Howard transcribed the adventures of Conan from a ghost, except with a lot less depression and suicide.' Lim is currently alternating his time between a full-time job and working on novel-length manuscripts aimed at traditional publishing.

Ken Lim marries science fiction with fantasy in creating worlds hardly imaginable except through the eyes of an author with the penchant for making the impossible seem almost plausible. Here he has created a floating world of Saruwa, landmasses (or aerocks) that float around in the `sky' or space of the universe powered by a volatile mineral a called andonite which some individuals can control and use to pilot the masses. Though the story has a `cast of thousands' Lim manages to define them all fairly well. The most approachable characters are Alessa, a powerful figure who is convinced subsistence on the floating landmasses is not the real answer to the meaning of life, and Devan who is the more stable protector of their space in this strange floating world.

With this book starting my Indie Reviews, I have to say I'm grateful to have read this fantasy novel first. It gives me confidence that I have taken on a worthwhile task. While it's by no means a perfect work, "The Starfall Knight" is an entertaining read.

I came away with an interesting take on this book: Pirates on the high skies. That's what I equate this story with. It's a remarkably interesting concept.

I've read a lot of fantasy in my time, and it's hard really to compare this story to any of the other stories I've read, so different is it. If I had to, I'd say Lim's "The Starfall Knight," is the kind of fantasy reminiscent of Brandon Sanderson's swift character viewpoint style, as seen in "Elantris." When things get hairy, Lim knows what to give, where to leave you, and where to pick it up. It makes for great tension and fast-paced scenes. This is one of the strengths of the book. While at times the story does slow down, and maybe too much attention is given to descriptions at certain points, the action-packed sequences make it worth it. This is especially evident when Lim brings the book to a close. We get the chance to see the climax in all its stages from the two main viewpoints, switching back and forth with an intent to paint the entire, harrowing picture.

Another aspect of this book that really stood out was the character development. Lim does a remarkable job in giving life to each and every face that appears in the pages. You're drawn to these characters, and you come to understand them. This does have its downfall at times, as Some characters have a habit of doing something you don't quite expect, leaving you shaking your head in confusion and frustration. I'll mark this down to the pace of the novel.
