Glenn G Thater has done it to me again. I was reading along, totaly entralled by the story when I turned the page an the book ended. Damn You Glenn.
This was the best book of the three of The Harbinger of Doom Saga and they were all excellent reads. Once you start one you can not put it down. Knight Eternal was so captivating that I literally dreamed about the story last night.
The entire series is an excellent read and I highly recommend it for both Adults and YA who like fast action adventure series that is easy to follow and read. I can't wait for the next installment.

In “Knight Eternal”, Glenn Thater pits two mighty forces, armies of men, magic, and supernatural forces in a conflict that will decide the fate of the world. Once again the author has superseded his previous efforts in this third book of a saga that can only be labeled epic. This book leaves the reader breathless yet panting for more.
