Summary

To protect the crew against betrayal, Captain Cross sends the Stalwart on a training mission to Ecoma, a gas giant populated by evolved humans with dangerous empathic abilities.

The journey was supposed to be easy: acquire training from the evolved humans, negotiate the use of magical devices that can protect the knights from mind control, and get a bit of R&R.

Of course, nothing is ever easy with the Stalwart, and Squire Nicholas Lyons soon finds himself battling for his life against sensual mind readers, hordes of bloodthirsty Grendels, enemy kingdom warriors, and a berserker knight named Olav.

love the series but..

I'd appreciate if the MC didn't have a constant hard on for every Female character, and these girls seems to want to bang him for no reason? are they deprived or something? it's just annoying to listen to the MC describe how nice the main girls tits look in whatever right clothing they happen to be wearing that day. except from all that I really like the series, it kinda like a LitRPG series at times with the weapon stats and effects/bonuses which is cool, and I'm glad it's not one of those storys that go PG with the blood and gore for no apparent reason when the action is happening, Nick Podel is an amazing Voice Actor as always, sometimes when I lose concentration when listening I snap back into it thinking I'm listening to Ricktor from the Chaos seeds series XD

looking forward to the next book

I like the storyline, the characters, I understand the need for the weapon and armour stats and it's nicely done. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Awesome follow up

The narrator does very well with portraying several characters and really nails it.

The story moves fast paced like the first and although it is similar in impending doom where it should be simple and great escapes occur, it is very enjoyable to listen to. The concept of melee fighting in armour as well as space battles is a great mixture. This universe is a good adventure.

Long may it continue

not bad but not good

Not bad... but compared to the first one it was hard for me to finish. Most of the dialogue just seems off to me. I think the thing that bothers me the most is that the guy lusts after every girl on the ship and the way he describes those feelings annoys me.

Good but meh

I got tired of hearing all the main character flirt with the different girls. I know it’s just that but man this book has so much going for it, you don’t need to add that to keep me listening. Think of other situations and don’t be the same as all those other books.

Not worth the time.

I liked the first book, but this one seriously tanked. The relationships Lyons has with the female crew are disgustingly juvenile, and almost offensively bad. I just wanted to hear about fights and equipment, the "romance" is not at all welcome. The entire arc regarding Lyons being a traitor was frustrating as well. The writing is hamfisted at best. Narration was good, at least.

First story was better

The story felt shorter, and more shallow. The increased focus on the main character's internal debate on which of the 3 women he should try and date is annoying. The Main Character seems to be a Mary Sue, which isn't unusual for a Litrpg... but paired with basic writing tropes made it pretty boring to get through.

Nick did a great job narrating.

I actually like the concept, and don't won't to discourage the author. I might buy the next book in the series, but I really hope there is more focus on RPG style elements, or a better written story. I'm not picky, I'll take either.

Interesting story...but...

In my opinion, this continuation of Space Knight had a weak development. Part of the problem for me, was the lead character's obsessive attention to the women in the crew, also his fragmented development during potential battle scenes. It seemed that the author was just trying to add filler, which is normal, but I prefer filler that adds to the story, not distracts.

Great potential, too teen oriented

Simple space with a bunch of fun characters and places. Nick does great voicing as always. Unfortunately for me, the book spends a lot of time on the protagonists flirtation with various female characters, which I find immensely tedious and pubesent. A little romance here and there would be fine, but this book takes it to the extreme.

Great book with a rough middle

For the most part I enjoyed this book, the action and overall story was really interesting to listen to. However, the middle section where the romance started to take over was a little annoying. Get ready to hear about how *girl* is beautiful and how they get along so well despite the story so far. And there are multiple women that are beautiful and are interested in Nick. If you can get through that, the book is definitely great. Can't wait for the next book!

horrible protagonist

The author: "the say character development is important, so I'll make him a boring, gulible, incredibly stupid, and annoying, whining whimp, that's the worst character in the story, and then when gets a little bit less of all those things, it'll be character development!" I hate idiot protagonist so much, he was insanely stupid with traitor thing in the first book, in this one he's a little less stupid, and more of whimp.

An awesome and fun series.

These are great books and MSE is still working on them.

If you want more MSE books, find him on social media, Amazon banned him but he is still publishing.
