I finished this book, so I suppose it has to rate more than one star...
It's not very good. Oddly compelling at times, but if you want to read the story of an amnesic soldier, Gene Wolfe's "Soldier of the Mist" is infinitely better.

Knight's Dawn jumps between fantasy, romance novel, and action. None are done very well. There's no character development. Don't waste your time like I did!

A knight wakes up in territory unknown, memory gone, with signs of having been involved in a mighty battle except that there hadn't been a battle in that area for a hundred years.

So begins knoght's adventures involving wizards, betrayal, battle, love and friendship.

I enjoyed it. You probably will too.

I was sucked into this book from the first few pages, I needed to find out what Soldier was all about and where he had come from.
I have enjoyed the different situations that Soldier has had to overcome and the characters that he has met along the way.
