    This wasn’t a bad book. But it could have been better. I think. In the first place, the action felt more appropriate for a comic book than for a plain-text book. It’s not well explained, but the main characters appear to be, among their other talents, elemental mages of some sort, and they fling earth, water, wind, and fire about with the careless abandon of superheroes. In the second place, there are two just barely connected storylines taking place here. The first, which from the looks of it sho This wasn’t a bad book. But it could have been better. I think. In the first place, the action felt more appropriate for a comic book than for a plain-text book. It’s not well explained, but the main characters appear to be, among their other talents, elemental mages of some sort, and they fling earth, water, wind, and fire about with the careless abandon of superheroes. In the second place, there are two just barely connected storylines taking place here. The first, which from the looks of it should be the more important, is that there are one or more oppressed countries – the geography of this world isn’t really clear, and at least one good map would have been immensely helpful – that are colonies of another country. Our superhero wannabes suddenly and almost without provocation start attacking the police in one of the colonies. Riots ensue, and before the protagonists are done with their one-week vacation before they are due back in college, there is a full-fledged rebellion going on. The second story, which picks up when our heroes return to college (their college appears to be in some neutral territory where they are protected, at least initially, from the wars around them). They are all members of a sports team. Their sport is something called “shotball,” which appears to be an amalgam of all the various games known as “football” with elements of a few other sports, for example, basketball, hockey, and maybe some others thrown in. They are engaged in an all-important struggle to defeat one particular other school at shotball, but must first win an intramural competition at their own school. A good two-thirds to three-quarters of the book is spent on this part of the story. If you like sports stories, this part of the book is not bad. But the most maddening part about this book is that Cain, the team captain and the guy who started the revolution at the beginning, is not merely given but urged to accept such a pivotal part in the military defenses of the territory where their school is and that his commander seems to supports his view of the importance of winning the shotball championship before everything else. There is only one brief moment, near the end of the book, after the forces of the oppressive mother country have started attacking the territory where the schools are when it briefly occurs to Cain that starting the rebellion at that point without any prior thought or planning was maybe not the very best thing to have done.

    Action-Packed Matthews tells an action-packed story with Northern Knights. First, I liked the premise of the story, and I liked how the author told this story. The characters, especially Cain, as they can be snarky with attitude but as the friends have known each other for a long time, it's expected about the way they talk to each other. I like how the characters relate, and they have a great chemistry. The story has a lot of details, and the characters do evolve, and are on their own journey.

There is a mix of magical powers and sports (shot ball) and it works for the story. I wasn't familiar with shot ball but I learned about it in this story. I look forward to reading more by this author.

    Dictatorship, Genicide, suppression, all leading to revolution. With a few fantasy abilities thrown in for good measure. This book keeps you engaged from the beginning to the end, I can recommend it to anyone that enjoys a fast paced, action story. Wonderful. I received a free copy of this book and happily give my honest review.

    This is an action-packed urban fantasy around sports and magic. Lots of worldbuilding with interesting characters. It keeps you turning the pages. In a world oppressed Cain, a college student decides to fight back. Looking forward to finding out more about this series world. I volunteered to read an ARC copy of this book. This is my honest opinion.

    Received as a review copy, this an honest review. Sadly this really ended up not being all that interesting; it did have a nice read pace. But that alone didn't make worth the time: not all that gripping, flat characters and okay battles.
