The Knighthood (Atlantis Rising Book 1) Kindle Edition
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

Those who struggled a bit with the proofing in previous books should be happy. I don't recall stopping at all to look at a misplaced word at all, which further demonstrates the progress Evan has made as a writer over the past few years.
I'd recommend this book if you like his style, or if you enjoy seeing the underdog get underestimated and come back with a vengeance. A bit of sci-fi, a bit of fantasy and a lot of fun.
Different, quite ingenious.
Exciting continuous action, and obviously the start of a series (I hope).
For readers of heroic fantasy/sci fi, strongly recommended.

Regrettably some sloppy/lazy writing/poor proof reading does have an adverse impact.
The author does not seem to know the difference between a sword’s hilt and its pommel. The words blood and ichor are used in different descriptions which at times have separate meanings and at others are the same.
One of the main characters initially speaks in what I take to be a Scottish accent (I am a Scot) but this disappears for much of the book but re-appears towards the end. Somewhere in the middle I discern a North American slant from the vocabulary.
Yes, I know this might sound/is pedantic but I found these issues annoying. I will however read the next book. I hope you will read both and enjoy them. Please also read his other books - similar issues but enjoyable reads nonetheless.
The actual theme of the story isn't too bad. It's intriguing. Unfortunately, I found none of the characters (besides Caleb a little bit) endearing and ended up not caring about what actually happened in the book. I finished reading the book, not because it was good or I was interested, but because I don't like not finishing a book that I've started.
By so fast reading this brilliant adventure. Now onto book2
