im not sure where to put this but recently iv been hearing/reading about the books of EVE and how they are a good read, im interested in them myself but the eve store has been lacking a lot lately with just clothes and collection edition when they used to be full of ship models etc etc.

my question is where do i find these books? Amazon or any general book store( i doubt it so much)

and what are the names for the books (i forgot and can't find the names hence my struggle >_<)

There was a book I read where it was from an NPC perspective, a pilot comes and blows up his home and he goes through EVE trying to plot his revenge.
It is how knew about EVE and I tried to become a Gurista.

What was the name of that book?

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

That'll be the Burning Life. Not as strong on plot as the others in my opinion, but gives an interesting look into the factions a bit.

Did you read the one titled "The fall of the tears" yet? Well I guess you can't, because that book will never be finished.

Burning life is awesome when it picks up, it reveals so much on the pirates where the first one showed so much on the empires.

Empyrean Age was a good read although the best part was the storyline regarding the frigate salvager.


If they could have stuck with that only i think it would have been a fantastic story as if we ever get there as a people this is where we will be.


The main problem with EVE is that we are so powerful


Just having a BPO for a shuttle should be so dangerous that everyone and everything NPC and Players should chase you over the universe for it.
