Some people love this series and others hate it. If you read this author mainly for his high-tech space battles, such as those in the Honor Harrington universe which kicks off with "On Basilisk Station (Honorverse)" you should probably leave the "Safehold" series alone.
Here is a possible test for whether you will like the "Safehold" series. If you play computer games or board games, the likelihood that you will enjoy this series is directly proportional to the pleasure you get from playing Sid Meier's Civilisation (link: Sid Meier's Civilization V) or similar games. The heroine of this series is doing what the successful Civ player has to do: shepherd a nation surrounded by enemies one step at a time from a pre-industrial era with muscle-powered weapons and units such as swordsmen and galleys through increasingly advanced periods of history and up to the space age while balancing the competing demands of defence against hostile powers, economic development, and scientific research, and simultaneously juggling politics, culture and religion.Read more ›
I had followed the "snippets" and wanted my hands on the book ASAP.
I detest the publisher's policies of delayed publication in the UK compared with the USA and the highly discriminatory price differences. It is actually cheaper for me to get a friend in Texas to buy the book and post it to me than to pay the UK price
The book is intricately plotted, but it is well written and the many threads of the story are interwoven without losing clarity. It majors on action, not character development, and on that, you cannot fault it. I was personally happy to discover that Hector Aplyn-Ahrmahk survived the attentions of the ungodly, and I am looking forward to the next installment.
I thoroughly recommend that you read this whole series. The whole scenario running in it is well thought out and most importantly you get the reasons behind the decisions made on all sides.
If you read this series and enjoy it try Mr Weber's " Honor Harrington" series. True space opera.
The story is enriched by 'mighty army' but not really advanced too far, which is frustrating for the reader but it makes the story more real, as war is seldom a quick run thing. *spoiler* it is great that merlin finally gets some help in the guise of the original persona of nimue in her own 'owl' built body. Can't wait for 'foundations' to push the story on! Overall a great engaging read.
