About 400 pages of story. The rest is fill. The story is vintage Weber, but the amount detail is fatiguing, and then the last 15%, 66pages, of the books is trivia. I expect that about 2 'drafts' ago this was a ripping good story with great Weber action, characterization and setting.
As a long time fan of Mr. Weber's work I would recommend waiting for an 'author' edition that would be shorter ( I.e. less expensive ), and a much much better read.

. . . with no end in sight. This is an involving series, as one would expect from this author, and the appearance of Nimue (mark 2?) is an interesting development. The downside is that with so vast a canvas it is difficult to keep track of everyone, especially since the names of both characters and places are not always easy to recognize. The upside is that the action scenes are satisfying, especially when the villains are foiled. In many ways this is like a medieval prose romance, appropriately enough given the presence of Merlin and Nimue, but that creates problems in the novel form. Weber is juggling rather too many balls, but it is enjoyable to watch.

After getting sidetracked sometimes in the last book and going into too many battles that the reader had no stake in with the characters or what was going on, in Like a Might Army, Weber instead focuses on two fronts on the war primarily. With only two fronts you are able to learn the new characters and emphasize with the difficulties and troubles of war. Meanwhile Merlin's continuing difficulties and challenges of being the last one from before the war are highlighted by both some actions and a new character.

Weber's attention to detail almost reads like a technology manual for old armaments. Sometimes he provides more detail than required but he is still probably the greatest Sci-Fi writer of this genre (along with the Honor series which is my favourite by all measures) of modern sci-fi. The complexity of the engagement between the royalists and the heretics is underlined by the variety of sub themes and parallel actions which are taking place--at times it even made it difficult to keep track who, what, where was going on. The maps help but I found myself spending a inordinate amount of time trying to place the action based on names in the story. Can't wait for the next in the series.

The seventh in his series, and the books keep getting better and better. Unlike his Honor Harrington series which later lost cohesion and focus. This story line is going really well and this book is a very well written book with an excellent story line. Of course for new readers would recommend they start with book one of the series to really appreciate and enjoy this series from David Weber

All in all a good book to have and add to ones collection, highly recommended !!!

The only problem with this great series of books by David Weber is that he doesn't write them quickly enough. This was another one I couldn't put down. This series continues to evolve all its immensely interesting characters, constantly putting them all in fabulous adventures, and introducing ever more twists a turns as new characters are added. I can't wait to read what happens next.

I have been a fan of this Weber since OAR. This one was as good as any, and, to be honest, better than the last one. I would really like an end to it next time, and hope we do not have to wait two years for it. Of course, going after the "Gbaba" could be a new series all by itself.
