Summary

Near the border between two kingdoms, a vessel full of innocent passengers is destroyed. While the extent of the impending retaliation is unknown, its inevitability is not. Galactic war is approaching.

In a seedy bar in a distant corner of the solar system, a knight clad entirely in green armor puts forth a grisly challenge. The only person to accept the knight’s game is a woman who spends her time drinking and thieving.

These two acts, occurring in different parts of the galaxy, both lead to the same spot: The planet that will soon fall under attack.

Welcome to Space Lore, where Arthurian legend meets Star Wars. Epic space fantasy will never be the same.

An interesting take on the Arthurian legend.

Well narrated, although when he tried voices they tended to run into each other. The characters were fairly shallow and throw away and the story line was trite and uninspiring. Saying all that it was easy to listen too, no problem getting towards the end and sparks a little interest in the rest of the series. I am left feeling that the author could have done so much more with the story and characters, and I'm interested in seeing if they both develop.

Fantasy Meets Sci-fi

*Recieved for Free* What do you get when you combine Arthurian legend esk Fantasy, with Space Opera? The Space Lore series apparently, and if this first entry in the series is anything to go by, then its actually managed to mash the 2 genres together very well. The main plot screams high fantasy, with the action lending itself to sci-fi trappings. Why only a 3/4 star review then? The book is Good, but does have some slight failings, all of which will probably be corrected as the sequels go forward 1)The pacing is rapid. The books is split into 89 chapters (no, seriously, 89 chapters in just a single audiobook), with each being short in length. The book starts steady then just goes a breakneck pace until its conclusion. 2) I never felt like I was given much time to connect to the charactors. The main protagonist and antagonist gets some fleshing out, but I felt this could have done with a lot of expansion. Theres also a really great cast of side charactors who you never really learn anything about, other than there names, and what they are like as people. Your meant to be routing for these people to succeed, give the reader a reason to. I will give Dietzel credit however, even though there were elements I didnt find enjoyable, its overall a very good read. Most suprisingly, because this is a series, the book actually has a proper ending. Now that the world building is done, and the charactors established, I can only imagine that going forward a lot of my criticisms of this entry will go away. Hopefully the sequel also has better pacing Also, well done to Greg Tremblay - good narration, and an overall solid performance

terrible writing

the writer spends too much time being repetitive and boring. they spend to much time describing things around the galaxy,doors buildings science and random people who have no bearing to the story. such and such felt something coming and so did the others and on and on. the story seems to take a back seat for just describing anything and everything,almost as if the writer had little story to work with and was trying to fill a word count

the green knight

was a good fun story just a few niggles like 1 fleet commander extolling the virtue of restraint while committing genocide, and another casually murdering subordinates wasnt sure where my sympathies should lie, performance was excellent

The cover drew me in

The cover drew me in the but the story made me stay. Combined with Greg Tremblay’s powerful narration, this isn’t exactly your average space opera. If you like Space Fantasy (Star Wars, for example) you will absolutely love The Green Knight.

The Narrator and the Basilisk, Part One

The main character is a blatant Mary Sue. When Morgran is introduced, it's almost obvious that she was thrown in to get the plot rolling. Of all the characters in this book series, I absolutely detest Morgan. Horribly written character. Veer is just....well, right now in this book she's a placeholder Mary Sue. Horrible backstory and useless as an individual. Honestly the only reason I gave such high ratings is because the narrator makes this book better than it is. It's well written. Don't get me wrong, but the tropes are just flinging crap at you. The only unique part? The basilisk, Thrrask. Really like this character. Should of been the main character.

Odd story, in my opinion

I found this story to be somewhat entertaining, however weirdly developed! It was just sort of disjointed and confusing to me. To me it seemed to go in random direction, with odd bits of violence!

Amazing start to a series!!!

A war started to help overthrow a kingdom. An heir who ran away and does want anything to do with their family. A challenge made an accepted. A race to stop the war. Friends and family lost. A traitor unmasked and dealt with. The first battle of the war won, but at what cost. Great start and I can't wait to see where this goes.

Swords in Space

The Green Knight is story set in the future in space and very loosely based on King Arthur mythology. The main character is in a bar with her friends. As someone comes in looking for her, you find out that she has left her kingdom years ago (her father is the king). Her father ordered the attack of non-military vessel which is leading to war. The opposing fleet is almost to Edsel Dark (the main planet within the kingdom) and she is needed to help stop the upcoming war/desolation of the planet. Meanwhile, a giant green knight comes into the bar and challenges anyone to chop his head off if they agree to allow him to do the same (at a later date). She agrees but it doesn’t go quite the way she planned. The narrator does a good job with different voices for the different characters. He messed up once or twice, but it was so minor you barely notice it.

Space Fantasy

This space fantasy, written by Chris Dietzel, is a story of adventure, war, survival, destiny, betrayal and redemption. It was a fun, easy read/listen. The characters would benefit from a bit more development/background, however I enjoyed the relationships and dialog of the characters which held my interest and were humorous on occasion. There is adventure, action and vivid space battles. The story with surprising plot twists is entertaining and moves steadily along. This is the first book that I have had the pleasure of listening to narrator Greg Tremblay; his rich voice complimented the story. I was given a free review copy of this audio book and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Ummmm, Epic Space Fantasy...

What a very odd premise for a... ahh, what? Space Opera, or maybe an Epic Space Fantasy? What we've got here is a very Star Wars(esque) tale, married somehow to the Arthurian legend and a Hero's Journey, all rolled into one, and yeah, you read that right! So what you've got in your hands (should you choose to grab the book) is a kick-butt protagonist, who along with her crew of misfits, sets out on the path of the Hero's Journey, and they'll follow that path, all the way through to the end! The journey's not easy, and even the most jaded fans of action will find themselves gripping the edge of their seats! I'd not heard Greg Tremblay's narration talents before this audiobook... and he's Great! I'm looking forward to hearing more from him in the future!

a perfectly narrated good book

first the narration. The narrator did a fantastic job pacing and annunciating the book. the characters all had a distinct and consistent voices. the pronunciation was the same throughout. the story flowed smoothly from the beginning into the end. it was simple and not overly complex with a few twists and turns that were not over-the-top. the character progression was well-thought-out. this is a book that I recommended for my teenage son to read. I normally can't give a higher recommendation than that
