    A Gripping Tie-In; Some Minor Flaws, but Extremely Enjoyable

    This was my first MMO tie-in book purchase; I've never read a World of Warcraft novel, for example, but I enjoyed EVE: The Empyrean Age despite not knowing what to expect from the genre.

    It was extremely well written and I had a hard time putting it down. The plot was engaging and I enjoyed reading how the EVE universe I've come to love in the video game changed with the Empyrean Age patch a year or so ago. The universe could have been better described for someone who had never played EVE; the cloning and reincarnation aspects were well done, but my girlfriend needed me to define some terms for her. A small glossary or encyclopedia at the end would have been helpful to complete her immersion.

    All of the main characters were vivid, deep, and emotionally gripping. I found myself deeply engaged with the plights of Falek Grange, Gear, Keitan Yun, and Tibus Heth. That said, all the secondary characters (Jamyl Sarum, the crew of the Retford, the Ammarian scientist, the Broker, etc.) were underdeveloped. I would have preferred that Gonzalez had spent more time exploring their worlds and experiences or had spent more time on the main characters.

    Those things aside, however, it was an excellent read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys spacefaring science-fiction or is looking to learn about the EVE universe.
