Summary

The last war was fought with weapons unimaginable....

A war was fought. Humanity lost.

Time for a rematch.

The world fell, the invaders won, and demons now ruled what had once been man's domain. The great works of a once powerful civilization lie in ruins, its people having forgotten the wonders of their forefathers as they now live in the yoke. Not everyone is willing to go quietly into the endless night, however, and for every inch of ground they'd won, they had paid in blood and bone. At the end of it all, however, the demons stood victorious and all that was left to accomplish was the final cleanup of the human pests that infested occasional parts of the conquered world.

In one nearly uninhabitable part of that world, a very young such pest has come of age and, without understanding what it means, she walks in the shadow of destiny.

The demons have a lesson to learn, one last to be taught to them by humans, before they can call this world truly their own.

A cleansing fire can start from the smallest of sparks...and it is always darkest just before the dawn.

Great (audio) book.

After "Heirs of Empire" I wasn't sure if I should read this book, since I was afraid that this will be very similar to mentioned above (with I wasn't found). Turns out to be very good. Nice characters with very interesting story. I liked the concept very much, nice ideas! I just can't wait for the next one. Well done! In mine opinion this book if way better than "Heirs of Empire" I had a feeling that this is how "heirs... " should look like. It takes 1 to 2 hours for this book to become very interesting and after that... Well grab one for yourself and have fun!

a new classic

Evan Currie is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. this new collection has the potential to be as good as his other stories and that's great news

Mix of SciFi and Fantasy in a great new world

Evan is one of my favorite builders of worlds and here, he steps into new grounds. The setting is a wasted Earth that you are unsure if it takes place in a far off future or a very distant past. Demons have wiped out most of humanity and what is left is a shadow of what used to be.

The demons are inter dimensional intruders and I take it, so are angels, the world is covered with relics of heights that man rose and the tools left behind. The main character is a girl named Ella, who grew up in hiding in the middle of this wasteland and bad things happen as things do and she grows up.

Go ahead and buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Surprisingly enthralling

I have never read anything by Evan Currie before. I was between books and looking for something new. Knighthood caught my eye and I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm very glad I did. Definitely worth the credit. Great world building, but not at the expense of character development.

Performance is too breathy and angst-ridden

I'm only about 7% into the book, but I felt I had to write a performance review before I stopped listening to it. I've been an Evan Currie fan for a long time and plan on continuing to read the Kindle version, but the narrator is really irritating me. Most of her sentences have the same tone and pace, with an occasional almost choked-off, sob-like quality. I prefer actors who can emote within the context of the story without distracting from the story; James Marsters, Lorelei King, Marguerite Gavin, Bronson Pinchot are just four of my favorites. Unfortunately, Ms Campbell's narration is just a little to dull and repetitive for my tastes. I'd recommend just buying the ebook, not the audiobook.

Another enjoyable world building tale from the fertile imagination of Evan Currie

Another enjoyable world building tale from the fertile mind of Evan Currie. While we enjoy his space set adventures more, this was still quite entertaining with vivid depictions of action and characters. The reader did an outstanding job with vocal variety and dialects.

Book one

Interesting and full of new ideas for a sci-fi fiction book. A good start for a series of stories.
Very well read as is always expected for Cassandra Cambell who is definitely a favorite reader.

Gripping

Currie weaves an interesting world while telling a gripping story. Campbell has enough distinct voices so that there is no moment of question as to who is speaking and tells the story with feeling but without being overly dramatic. Together the tale is hard to interrupt.

great narration for a post apocalyptic story

I really enjoy Cassandra ability to make each character distinguishable. the flow was nice and my ultimate measure of a good book...I eagerly anticipate the next book. I just pre-ordered it but will possibly read the Kindle version prior to it's audible release.
