Product Description

Review

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.

At the rate this series is going, I expect my grandchildren will be reading the conclusion on the flight to the Mars Colony.

I've given up purchasing Mr Weber's books. I wait until the show up in my public library.

And if I read one more "I'm not saying your wrong, it's just that" or a variation thereof, I will gag. Seriously.

As well Mr Weber obviously does not work in an office as he seems to think those of us that do want to sit in on other people's meetings.

600 pages and the story has moved forward very slightly....

Take your time writing the next book Mr Weber. There are other books to read.

The first book was pretty good, but things have been going downhill since then, and this is the worst. Too much talk, too much time with people we don't need to know about and don't care about. Not enough progress.

David Weber weaves a great story. He manages to jump from the strategic to the tactical seamlessly. His battle field, mechanical, and scientific descriptions are authentic, teleporting you to to time period. Enjoy!
