In this seventh installment in the "Safehold" series in which the major character up to now has been Merlin Athrawes, a.k.a. Nimue Alban, the land war in Siddarmark continues while people on both sides of the war are making more and more use of their own minds, something which the evil "Church of God Awaiting" wanted to stop. And there is one big surprise in the book, which the front cover nearly, but not quite, gives away.

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.

Everything that I expected. Prolix as always with David Weber but I couldn't put it down until I had completed it.
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

This continues the story of the last remaining human outpost, hidden on the obscure planet named Safehold after the genocidal attentions of the alien Gbaba. To keep the planet unnoticed and make sure that its nascent civilisation would not call attention to itself by emitting radio signals, the paranoidal group that seized violent control of it after it was settled, locked the civilisation into a pre-technical theocracy, called the "Church of God Awaiting". They enforced their control by setting up a system of technology censoring called the Inquisition – with all that implies. Unfortunately, the ruling theocrats have become corrupt, and the Inquisition is being used to ensure that the cozy lifestyle of the Church rulers is not threatened. Religious schism and rebellion inevitably occur, assisted by the last remnants of the high technology that had founded the planet. As the book starts, the rebels are facing a huge assault in the Holy War instituted by the "Group of Four" who control the Church, and humanity's future hangs in the balance.

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.

Rather sad this episode in the long running Safehold Series barely advances the plot one wit over the previous book. Rather like the Grand Old Duke Of York there is a tremendous marching (and sailing) up and down and little else. Disappointing, better to wait for the muse to get to work before going in to print.

As the whole series has progressed the characters have developed in a logical and reasoned way. The world in which they occupy is also a rich and vibrant environment.

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.

To get an idea of how complicated the world of safehold is, I showed the index of charectors to my wife. It looks like a mini novella. Now try to keep all those people and their various storylines clear in your head as a reader. Yeah! Crushing migraine!. My respect for weber as the writer of such a rich and varied universe is real. He gives life to people who are as real as any sitting around me now, people with lives and dreams goals and setbacks, in essence they are charectors that you can emphatise with. It makes the unending lists of support bearable when you feel for them.
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.
