5.0 out of 5 stars best sci-fi series i've ever read 8 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this is the best science fiction series of books i've ever read. I rarely read a book more than once, but i've read all the books in this series at least 3 times straight through. I have trouble putting them down even to stop to eat. Mr. Weber, if you're reading this, I encourage you to keep writing on this series all the way to it's logical conclusion, the destruction of the Achu'Ultan computer.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, good moral dilemma 4 May 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This series started out as ok/good space opera, and has moved on to something much better. I won't give away the plot, but there is a very real moral dilemma where the characters more or less accidentially start a major war that they have no choice but to continue and win, or even more lives will be lost. A must read for military/alternate history buffs, another look at pikes vs muskets. Weber continues to improve, and now is one of the best (And most prolific) authors in SF

I have loved this 3 book series, and they are not only worth reading, but worth owning as well. These is non-stop sci-fi action at its very best. David Weber had done a WONDERFUL job of creating a universe that we would all love to be a part of... We just hope he will write more about the McIntrye Family and all their friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars What happened to Weber? 25 April 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anyone who tells me that David Weber is not one of the finest authors in any genre had better explain him or herself quickly or find themselves in some discomfort. Given that, I am not sure why this book was not one of the best I have ever read. It is set in the Imperium universe he created, which is great (heroes, villains, millennia old starships and dead worlds, etc.)but still, this book is only okay. Actually, most books tend to go down the tubes when they are about children for some reason (see Nemesis by Asimov as an example). Also, the bit on the planet seemed very similar to A Fire Upon The Deep. Mr. Weber created a universe of great breadth and possiblities, but he didn't use them here. Where are the Achuultani? Where are the grand vistas of time and space? I was hoping for some sort of conclusion to the Achuultani saga, or at least get to watch the forging of the Fifth Imperium, but instead it was time for Emperor Colin's Neighborhood. The strange thing is that even though I had complaints about the plot of this book, Mr. Weber is such a great author that I could not put it down. Even though I would have preferred a different story, the one I got was pretty good itself. I implore Mr. Weber not to ditch this series until it is over, because it is my favorite. (Even above that other triumph, the Honor Harrington epic).

4.0 out of 5 stars Last part of trilogy 17 July 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved the first two and only discovered this third volume by chance. Fairly typical of David Weber but less fighting than some. Main story of the children of the first books taking over a planet had dubious morality. They trained an army to allow them to call home for help.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heirs of Empire (Dahak Series) 2 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the third installment in the series. While it picks up and continues the basic storyline from the previous series it is more of an expantion novel rather than a direct continuation of the story line. It is basicaly a way to introduce more charecters for future books. Neverless it is a good book in it's on rights while my personal preference would be more for more battles like in the previous two books, there are fights aplenty in this one. The main difference in between this book and the previos is rather than a single storyline, you have to main stories that run together, which are only tied together by the fact that the main charecters in the second story are the children of the charecters from the other story and the previous books. The driving factor of the previous books was the imenent arrival of the genocidal Achuultani, while in this book there no major driving factor to move the story forward. In general not as good as the first two and definetly in need of sequeals to bring the series to conclussion.
