Publisher's Summary

The Earth on the brink of destruction. A new world of magic and danger! Can Phil stay alive long enough to enjoy his escape from destruction?

The world is ending.

Yet in the midst of its destruction, there's Haven, an escape from the pending doom. Unfortunately, this doesn't include Phil. After losing his sister, he's miserable and just looking to survive. When he illegally finds a way into Haven, he discovers it's a world that's unlike anything he's seen before. Haven is alluring and constantly changing. But it's also dangerous, and Phil soon realizes there's someone who wants him dead.

In exchange for his safety, Phil makes a bargain to retrieve a magical item located somewhere in a deep forgotten forest. But time is running out, and if he doesn't find it in time, his death is guaranteed.

It was okay

This book took a while for the main character to put on his big boy pants and grow a pair, even then it was hard to cheer for him, he was over reliant on others and the power. It was hard to listen to.

The narrator was ok.

Solid real and game world story

I appreciated the time and effort spent in developing the real world setting. I feel like a lot of books in this genre try to get to the game world as quickly as possible. The game world her is quite unique and light on the crunch. I am interested in seeing what happens next in this series. The narration was very well done. Reimer does an excellent job giving the characters a voice.

Hated the MC.

I wanted to love this book but I find that I am conflicted because I didn’t like the MC. Overall, the book was entertaining. But the dang MC is not very likable. This is my opinions.

better than what I expected

I love medieval times books. When this book first started it did not sound like it would be in that time period. However that quickly changed not too far in and I was hooked from that point on. the narrator did the book justice and it was over before I expected it to be. I do not know when the next books will come out but I definitely will get them when they do

GOOD START TO A SERIES.CANT WAIT TO READ MORE!

ELDRITCH KNIGHT BY TIMOTHY MCGOWEN AND NARRATED BY MICHAEL REIMER is the first in the Haven Chronicles.

If you are into the medieval/fantasy/genre the Haven Chronicles are for you.
Phil has not only just lost his sister,but Earth is on the brink of being destroyed. Phil, wanting to get away from Earth is "transported" to Haven and Haven aint all its cracked up to be! Phil lands into medieval times and is forced to become a knight , a terrible knight. He is set upon a quest and must learn not only to conform to the time and place but to battle evil beasts and retrieve a magical item.

Not bad for the start of a series. I do like the characters Phil comes across. Mr.McGowen has put together a world that could , given more development of the characters,become a must read series.
I listened to the audio version and the narration by Michael Reimer is really good a helps make the story

I recieved this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.

Great story! Gut wrenching character development.

This was quite the story. I was expecting a bit more human sacrifice, but was pleasantly surprised. I’d like more details on how the magic functions, but that’s what future books are for!!!

wanting more

Great concept and launching point for what I see as becoming a great franchise. I can't wait to know more about this magical world! I loved the connection of "real world" to fantasy and sci-fi. The author created interesting characters and the narrator did a good job of bringing them to life.

Exciting

This was a wonderful first edition to an exiting series of books that will keep your attention from start to finish. The narrator was perfectly chosen for this story. I can’t wait for book 2.
