Along with the release of the expansion Empyrean Age in June the first EVE novel also saw the light of day, EVE: The Empyrean Age. The Empyrean Age marked the rise of the capsuleers as heavy hitters in interstellar politics, unfettered by factional or other political ties. When I picked up Tony Gonzeles’ first novel, EVE The Empyrean Age, I was honestly expecting another forgettable and ultimately meaningless.

Space opera on an unprecedented, larger-than-life, scale. While I enjoyed seeing Otro Gariushi in action again, I feel he was the most developed character there but again, that’s a bias because I play the game and I’ve read all the EVE Chronicles on the website.
Despite that, I think the novel captures nicely the day-to-day events of Eve universum – wars are made, plots are being schemed, unexp Most important thing to get it out of the way as soon as possible: From that momment I was hooked on EVE.
At least that’s how I see it. Also, please keep in mind that I only read until empyrsanwhere part II of the book starts. The Amarr are really evil.
It has things that are quite hard to understand from a scientific point of view for example, why the hell does The Broker’s disease move with him from clone to clone? As for structure, it can be compared to a Clancy novel in the way that it spawns multiple, seemingly unrelated plots and somehow ties them all together in the end.
However, the book, alone is incomplete. D I enjoyed that book – gave me a lot of new information on how things work behind the scenes in Eve. It’s not an EVE story. I somehow think this may have been better as 3 books.
But not because the writing style is tremendously good. In the world of EVE, many of the highest-ranking officials, whether in the various governments or the militaries or private individuals, have gone for this technology, which allows them to empyraen up inside their CRU chambers a few moments after their death, with all their memories and personalities intact in their body.
The collection of tales here are spun together in a way that was mildly interesting.
Some assessments on the first 10 chapters, though we’re shallow at best. We have a character called Vince, and another called Victor.
The story could have been told easily without any of this. The characters were distinctively drawn, although sometimes their backstories were pretty sketchy and occasionally their actions felt entirely emptrean to plot, rather than character.

I should get my writing hat on and see if I can do better: Caiden Baxter You’re a Pirate Likes received: Not a single plot resolves without an ass-pulled Deus Ex Machina Constant misspellings of character and ship names. Story Type The other problem I have with the book is the story it tells. Sep 26, Mike Jordan rated it it was amazing.
The characters in this book are so devoid of morals except dear Keitan, though he still thinks his body guard is a bit sexy. While it didn’t get into all of the “meatiness” of EVE that I would prefer, that’s a sharp bias I have because I play the actual game, and don’t we all want to see things that we can personally aye with?

Oct 20, Elizabeth Hunter rated it liked it Shelves: They have moments when they look their enemy in the eye and realise that they are about to take a life. The portal that transported humanity to another galaxy and then closed to strand them there. I rate this book 4. But not because it is not well written not a masterpiece of literature, but it doesn’t fail horribly eitherbut of the story: Return to Book Page.
I actually liked this, as it picks up an old PF plot of the succession trials. But the sheer number of characters and the various names of each race made it a confusing read.
Playing the actual game makes it a bit fve easy as well. The best part of the book is the last hundred pages or so where the various factions all come to blows.
