HASH(0x9299e5dc) out of 5 stars The epic tale continues! 25 Jun. 2011
By Glenn R. Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this tale of eternal beings, lost civilizations, and decaying worlds from ages lost in the sands of time. This is the third book in the Harbinger of Doom series. It picks up where the second book ended, with Theta and his band on a quest to prevent the return of the ultimate evil to our world. It is a well written fast paced story that will keep you on your seat.
While the author is known for not adding "fluff" to his descriptions and stories, he makes sure that there is more than enough detail to paint a good picture of the world they live in. My only compalint is the lenght of the book, while this is about twice the size of either the first or second book, I had wished it was longer, especially upon reaching the ending which left me with a feeling the story should not have ended there. I look forward to the authors next book.

HASH(0x9299e828) out of 5 stars Pure Excellence in the Fantasy Genre 13 May 2010
By Rai Aren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author, Glenn G. Thater, wrote this story based on 1200-year old documents about an enigmatic character, Lord Angle Theta, and his epic journeys and battles. There is even evidence dating all the way back to 2600 B.C. that speaks to the Angle Theta lore. The author has updated this lost tale into the fantasy novel Knight Eternal. It is a battle of good vs. evil in a time of gnomes, elves & knights, and sword & sorcery. Terrible evil has befallen a vast land, creeping into places everywhere - seen and unseen - and corrupting countless people. A cadre of souls sets out to save a comrade after a merciless attack, restore justice and stability, and exact revenge.

Like his first book, Harbinger of Doom (made up of two stories - The Gateway & The Fallen Angle), this is, in my opinion, truly excellent fantasy literature. Many of the themes will be be familiar to fans of the fantasy genre, but it's possible that's because the ancient lore these books are derived from predates many other fantasy stories. Perhaps the intriguing and highly entertaining stories of the intensely mysterious and powerful Angle Theta were amongst of the original sources of inspiration for these later tales. It is obvious to me the appeal of these tales and why they lived on.

I am not exaggerating when I say that excellence is in every part of this book - from the dialogue, the settings, the pacing, the plot, to the overall feel of the story. There is not one word that is extraneous or out of place, there is never any place where I wish there had been more description, or better description, better flow, or more excitement. The characters are all clearly drawn out with palpable presences and personalities - my two faves are Ob the Gnome, and Lord Angle Theta, who continuously simmers with nearly unmatched power, danger, and deep mystery. The dialogue is crisp & witty, humorous at times, and always meaningful. The stakes are high and the journey is wild and unpredictable. The story is perfectly put together and, I think, should be read by every fan of the fantasy genre - I mean this all sincerely. It is a classic in the making.

***Possible spoiler alerts - next paragraph only***

What is really surprising & completely refreshing is that near the end of the book, the story is switched over to the bad guys' point of view, and absolutely everything is upended. The reader is then left questioning if they have it backwards, maybe those are actually the good guys (though ultimately, everyone does bad things, no one is blame-free, but everything seems to have solid motivations). This sets this book (and its predecessors) apart from most other stories. It is revelatory, and so incredibly well done, I am enthralled by it. I am not sure who the good guys are, plus there are many shades of grey, and what an agonizing treat for the reader that is. The possibilities this leaves are so tantalizing that I have never wanted to read a sequel so bad. Ever!

***End spoiler alerts***

One thing is important to mention - the story ends suddenly, very suddenly. It really is the first half of a full story. I didn't realize this about the book, there were pages left, but they turned out to be the glossary, so it caught me by surprise. I dearly hope the next instalment will be released post haste!

To wrap it up, Knight Eternal is brilliant storytelling in every possible way. So much so, that I want to read every single tale about Angle Theta that has ever existed. Highly recommended!

HASH(0x9299e7ec) out of 5 stars Great Adventure 30 May 2010
By Michael P. Lester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Once again, this is Grace Ann using my dad's acount--because I have still not made my own.
Mr. Thater, you are an inspiration. Let me say, first of all, this book had a plot I was not quite expecting--this made the work all the better. The ending left me breathless, as I was not expecting a certain fate to befall one of the characters. I deeply enjoyed the introduction of some new characters who I thought were completely necessary to the plot. And a good start to the next book, perhaps? Ob never ceases to amuse me; every time he spoke, I could picture him as his gnome-self and would laugh at his smart remarks. Another aspect I enjoyed was the perspective of the different groups--not only to give some variation, but also to give us depth of the other party's intentions (although these intentions are not yet completely clear). This tale of Mr. "Fancy Pants" and Claradon Eotrus, I hope will continue, for the action and vivid imagery are thoroughly enjoyed along with the in-depth plot of the prevalence of good over evil--or is that really the case? This was another great adventure, which I am glad to have the pleasure of partaking.

HASH(0x9299edc8) out of 5 stars Knight Eternal 25 Aug. 2010
By VMATH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr. Thater has done it again- he has created a novel that can be read in several ways. If you are looking for a fantasy novel with knights, gnomes adventure and sorcery you will enjoy this book. If you look deeper you will, once again find yourself questioning everything you know about good and evil. Then, if you look deeper you will find a commetary on today's society and the old adage that history repeats itself. I'm sure that many questions will be raised and many discussions entered into. In any case the book makes for enjoyable reading and is very hard to put down. I am now anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

HASH(0x9299efe4) out of 5 stars Action pack saga continues! 10 Nov. 2009
By Sunil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr. Thater takes the Theta saga from the land to the seas with even more ass kicking, sword weilding action in his follow up to the Harbinger of Doom. The team from Eotrus sets out on a journey and encounters unspeakable evil on their quest. The very vivid descriptions of every aspects of the surroundings in this book captures your mind and drag you into this action packed journey. The "good" dark mind of Theta is beginning to unravel in this book which begins to explain any unanswered questions one may have from the first book. I strongly recommend reading this book and can't wait for number 3!!
