Publisher's Summary

To protect the crew against betrayal, Captain Cross sends the Stalwart on a training mission to Ecoma, a gas giant populated by evolved humans with dangerous empathic abilities.

The journey was supposed to be easy: acquire training from the evolved humans, negotiate the use of magical devices that can protect the knights from mind control, and get a bit of R&R.

Of course, nothing is ever easy with the Stalwart, and Squire Nicholas Lyons soon finds himself battling for his life against sensual mind readers, hordes of bloodthirsty Grendels, enemy kingdom warriors, and a berserker knight named Olav.

Good but meh

I got tired of hearing all the main character flirt with the different girls. I know it’s just that but man this book has so much going for it, you don’t need to add that to keep me listening. Think of other situations and don’t be the same as all those other books.

not bad but not good

Not bad... but compared to the first one it was hard for me to finish. Most of the dialogue just seems off to me. I think the thing that bothers me the most is that the guy lusts after every girl on the ship and the way he describes those feelings annoys me.

Eff yeah!

I like that one of the supporting characters was able to snag the cover and it's kind of a big clue about part of the focus of this book.

horrible protagonist

The author: "the say character development is important, so I'll make him a boring, gulible, incredibly stupid, and annoying, whining whimp, that's the worst character in the story, and then when gets a little bit less of all those things, it'll be character development!" I hate idiot protagonist so much, he was insanely stupid with traitor thing in the first book, in this one he's a little less stupid, and more of whimp.

Excellent on all accounts

Great story with an excellent narrator. Finished within 2 days, couldn't stop listening. Can't wait for the next one.

too short

It would have been a 5 star rating but it was just too short for the price.

Interesting story...but...

In my opinion, this continuation of Space Knight had a weak development. Part of the problem for me, was the lead character's obsessive attention to the women in the crew, also his fragmented development during potential battle scenes. It seemed that the author was just trying to add filler, which is normal, but I prefer filler that adds to the story, not distracts.

Just Amazing

Absolutely fantastic. Can't decide whether I like book 1 or 2 best. Had me gripped from beginning to end. Just wish book 3 was on Audible.

I like the storyline, the characters, I understand the need for the weapon and armour stats and it's nicely done. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Awesome follow up

The narrator does very well with portraying several characters and really nails it.

The story moves fast paced like the first and although it is similar in impending doom where it should be simple and great escapes occur, it is very enjoyable to listen to. The concept of melee fighting in armour as well as space battles is a great mixture. This universe is a good adventure.

Long may it continue
