Product Description

About the Author

With over 7 million copies of his books in print and seventeen titles on the "New York Times" bestseller list, David Weber is the science fiction publishing phenomenon of the new millennium. In the hugely popular "Honor Harrington" series, the spirit of C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's "Master and Commander "lives on--into the galactic future. Books in the "Honor" Harrington and "Honoverse" series have appeared on fourteen best seller lists, including those of "The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times," and "USA"" TODAY." While Weber is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he is also the creator of the "Oath of Swords" fantasy series and the "Dahak" science fiction saga. Weber has also engaged in a steady stream of bestselling collaborations, including his "Starfire" series with Steve White, which produced the "New York Times "bestseller "The Shiva Option" among others." "Weber's collaboration with alternate history master Eric Flint led to the bestselling "1634: The Baltic War, "and his planetary adventure novels with military science fiction ace and multiple national bestseller John Ringo includes the blockbusters "March to the Stars "and" We Few. "Finally, Weber's teaming with Linda Evans produced the bestselling" Multiverse" series. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Judging by the copyright dates, Weber hasn't been in a hurry to write this series. The first three books follow consecutively in the time-line of the world of the story, with gaps of 3 and 6 years between publication. This one, published seven years later, is also seven years later in that world. As it's been so long since I last read the previous story I found, a couple of times, that I was mentally scrambling to make the connections; it's probably worthwhile to re-read Wind Rider's Oath before starting this one.
It's full of Weber's favourite themes: all the details of how to support an army of 20,000 in the field; the economics of a major civil engineering development; how love between two characters on the side of `the good' can destabilise things; and, of course, the triumph of good over evil. Along the way some of the major characters developed in the previous books die heroically.
The first few chapters hop around the world, tracing developments in parallel for several months, but the last third of the book covers the climactic battles that take place nearly simultaneously, but geographically widely separated. You may want to pace your reading such that you can sit down and read that last third in one session.
Artistically, this book completes a tetralogy; the first three stories feel incomplete without this culmination. I can see the hooks on which further stories could be hung but, unless they were very powerful stories in themselves, nothing else is needed.

I was looking forward to another book on "Bahzell & Co"'s adventures, so I grabbed this book asap. Well...

It's a bit disapointing, tbh. At 512 pages, I can honestly say that I felt close to 100 are useless padding; overlong descriptions, senseless dialog, etc. It would have been better to use that to fill up the vilains, most of which come out as "bad because vilain". The end conflict, when it comes, is resolved far too quickly and easily, which is ridiculous, considering all the set up described along the book.

Mr Weber gets lost in writing up too much local (in-story) politics and descriptions and too little on the characters and their actions (as opposed to simply riding around and trading banter), which forces the reader to plod along, trying to reach a meaningfull part. It's something that has been creeping up on some of his other series...

once the action starts the book is very good but.
the book is much too long. the first 90 pages are just padding. the map at the start is not much use. several detailed maps showing the canal would be more use. the list of characters would be more useful if they included christian names.

Much anticipated and I did enjoy it but felt it lacked the depth a warmth of character that was evident in the previous books.

How to describe this book? I love the characters. I love the universe. I love his writing of battle scenes. So why aren't Weber's books quite as much fun as they used to be? Oh, this volume isn't as bad as some - there aren't quite as many chapters involving bad guys talking each other to death as in some other recent volumes, but there's still far far FAR too much.

I think the problem is that one of Weber's greatest virtues - his desire to ensure everything hangs together logically, something that makes his universes a joy to read about - has also become a liability. Because when what the villains are doing DOESN'T make sense, this nags at him and so he feels he has to spend page after page - chapter after wretched chapter in Storm from the Shadows - allowing them to doubletalk and self-justify themselves into thinking that what they're doing is still perfectly sensible. Which alas both bores the reader to tears and also makes it clearer than ever to us how the plot is railroading these people into their stupidities. STOP IT, WEBER, PLEASE! If bad guys need to act stupidly, then make them misinformed or mistaken or just plain stupid. Don't pretend it all makes sense. And certainly not for large chunks of the book!

All of which said, as I said this book's not as bad as some have been, and is made that much more tolerable because I love these characters and their world and have been longing to see more of them. Some events and developments here won't surprise anyone who was paying attention to the carefully-inserted placeholders in War God's Own and Windrider's Oath, and it'll be interesting to see where he takes the series now (it's about time we found out why the bad guys are going to regret not managing to kill Brandark).
