The Honour of the Knights

by Stephen J. Sweeney

Good story.

The author should really get a good editor though. Grammar, spelling, and correct word usage are rather poor.

All in all it was a good read and this reader looks forward to the next installment to find out what happened.

Did this book ever see an editor? It needs to.

The book had potential. Interesting premises that could have been expanded to a three or four book series if they had been filled out. As it stands, it is much too long for a single book and yet it does not have enough in it to succeed as a good story.

The writing is extremely simple with poor diction. It is almost as if it was written by a 12 year old. The story lines blur badly so that when the scenes change you get no warning or direction and everything just runs together. The characters are left empty and hollow with only a very select few fluffed up -- though not enough to get a real feel for any of them. And as for being believable -- not hardly.

There are way too many attempted twists in the story that are extremely predictable and are way too cliche. The author seemed to be trying to trick the reader constantly like a three year old playing hide-and-seek by covering his eyes. Totally see through and childish.

The end of the book is just awful. Not only for the way it ends but in the method of its shortened demise -- maybe the author got tired of writing and just decided to kill it.

As before mentioned, the book had potential. With some serious editing and a lot of fill, there might be something here worth reading. As it stands though, skip it!
