Charles Keating's flawless narration adds a heightened dimension to David Weber's words. In fact, I think narration is the wrong word to describe precisely what Mr. Keating does with this novel. It's very much a one man performance of How Firm a Foundation. Without reducing the characters to vocal gimmicks or clichés, Keating effortlessly transitions from exposition to dialogue…when I read Safehold Book 6 it will be Keating's voice that I hear in my head when Clyntahn speaks.
