Templar One is an engaging addition to the Eve universe, and qualifies as the best EVE book yet. While it isn't as grand in scale as its predecessor, Empyrean age, its a lot more personal. The characters are much more engaging and fun to read about this time around, especially Mack. The action is incredibly well written and truly awesome to behold, and the plot is incredibly well-executed, filled with twists and turns that will keep you hooked until the very end. More importantly, the book does the near-impossible job of presenting all EVE factions in an equal light and letting you choose who to root for, just like in the game. For EVE players its a treat, and I also recommend this to any science fiction fans.
