    Irksome

    First, the good news: It was 400 pages and free. The bad news: it was 400 pages of 3rd person present tense. It was irritating and frustrating to read. I tried to power through but the characters were flat and wholly unlikable. I find it hard to be empathetic towards a "hero" who is whiny and suicidal. On top of that he was emotionally unattainable. What on earth was there about him that had women falling in love with him? He wasn't particularly kind or brilliant. In fact he spent nearly the entire 400 pages feeling sorry for himself. The princess--sorry Queen was not particularly interesting. She just seemed stuck in the story as a plot device. It introduced the whiny concieted black Knight into the story. You would think that after all hardships the Queen endured, she might have grown and learned something. It didn't seem so--especially at the end when she still had hopes that Alistor would come back to her. Alas she still pines after the standoffish Alistor. Also I am concerned that the author lacks a thesaurus because she used the word smirk in nearly every sentence. He smirked, she smirked, they smirked. It was maddening. If I had to deal with someone who thought himself so superior, I would have left him before page 5. The time that the story was set in seemed horribly vague. Because we are dealing with a man in full armor who fights with a sword, I sort of assumed it was the middle ages. Maybe it was the High Middle Ages because a printing press for all those books weren't available until 1436-40. But whatever--I slogged through the mire and there was no payoff in the end. I don't care a whit about Alistor because he has all the personality of a cardboard cutout. He strung along the queen who thought he cared for her--foolish woman--and proved himself to be a shallow lackwit.

    I really REALLY want to read this book, but I have to give up. I made it through 250 pages, but the present tense is killing me. I don't mind 1st person present tense, but 3rd person is just awful. It's a great story though.

    All hail the Black Knight. This book is the first in an epic fantasy, that will keep you wondering what is going to happen next. It starts out slow. Its 1215 pages. However once into the story, and the many stories within the story, you really come to feel these characters as your friends. I highly recommend this book to any fantasy reader.

    Pass

    I tried to like this book, but because it is written in present tense, I just could not stomach more than 50 pages.

    Good

    I really enjoyed this book, but I think it could have been edited better. Also,my pet peeve in the story is when men would insult a female character and call them whore, even when they were stong,intelligent,and caring, whore was the go to word. Besides that,i look forward to next book.

    Great read!

    I am suprised by some of the reviews. The author states at the beginning of the book that its going to have typos and some grammatical errors. If you are looking for a perfectly written book, go pay $15.00 bucks for it.

    The start if the story was a little slow, but once you got further in, it drew you into the story line. I really hope this author is at a place in their life now that they can get the next book written. I would definitely read it. There are so many good characters to build on and lingering questions to take in the next journey.

    Good read!!
