In Fall With Honor, Val is taking part in an effort to start another area of human control in a Kurian zone. He’s worn down, tired, and somewhat broken, but he’s still Val.

Fall With Honor was a bit of a let down. There is an intriguing mission and there could be interesting characters,
but the folks who surround Val seem to be just different iterations of many similar characters who he’s fought, served with, and hated before.
The best part of the book was when past characters put in cameo appearances. Val himself seems to be just going through the motions, and it feels like Mr. Knight has gotten bored with Vampire Earth and doesn’t really give it the attention and talent that earlier installments got.

I was frustrated with Fall With Honor. With a little more work and creativity there could be so much more happening at this point. There’s so much
potential! But, Knight has left plenty of loose ends, so I’m hoping to see some great stuff come of it. I just hope that he can bring this series back to its former glory.

JOHN HULET (on FanLit's staff July 2007 -- March 2015) is a member of the Utah Army National Guard. John’s experiences have often left a great void that has been filled by countless hours spent between the pages of a book lost in the words and images of the authors he admires. During a 12 month tour of Iraq, he spent well over $1000 on books and found sanity in the process. John lives in Utah and works slavishly to prepare soldiers to serve their country with the honor and distinction that Sturm Brightblade or Arithon s’Ffalenn would be proud of. John retired from FanLit in March 2015 after being with us for nearly 8 years.
