Very good reading

Templar One is a very good book for anyone with a tacit interest in the EVE Online universe. It does help to know a little bit about EVE's lore in order to have a little background knowledge about some people and organizations, but that isn't absolutely vital. It also helps, but is not vital, to have read the previous two EVE books--The Empyrean Age and The Burning Life since there are minor tie-ins with those books.

This book is a perfect read for anyone who knows a bit (or more) about the current EVE Online universe and is interested in learning more about the backstory for the upcoming Dust 514 game that is upcoming.

One nice thing about the physical book was that it had QR codes scattered about with some minor supplementary videos to give a visual representation of some of the ships and such involved. They're absolutely unnecessary, but kinda cool. It would be nice for those who don't own the physical book if the audiobook came with a list of those URLs and appropriate timecodes at which to look at them.

Sean Runnette does a very satisfactory job with this material.

nice book for eve players

I really liked this book, but then again I am an eve online player, so a lot of the locations where recognizable for me, as well as certain behavior from the factions in the book.

For a none eve online player it might be a bit overwhelming, while some back-story about the factions can be inferred the book might be a bit less digestible for those not already familiar with the setting.

I really liked the performance, the voices felt distinct and the pacing of the narration was good for my tastes.
