    OMG, I m giving Weber 2 starsNothing Happens.Seriously, you could just skip to the last chapter and be ready for the next book There were several weddings, a few funerals, some political machinations and upheavals, but in the end nothing happened The final chapter in the book is the only one that couldn t have been glossed over in a preface to the next tome.See, there needed to be some big enemy or evil plot that was fighting the good guys, but there wasn t It was justpeople being people OMG, I m giving Weber 2 starsNothing Happens.Seriously, you could just skip to the last chapter and be ready for the next book There were several weddings, a few funerals, some political machinations and upheavals, but in the end nothing happened The final chapter in the book is the only one that couldn t have been glossed over in a preface to the next tome.See, there needed to be some big enemy or evil plot that was fighting the good guys, but there wasn t It was justpeople being people.Another criticism is that I got a bit tired of having noblewomen explain how they aren t shocked by coarse language It got boring Or the overused metaphor that is an understatement that has to be thoroughly explained to be an understatement It got repetitive.There was no plot No driving force, except waiting for something to maybe happen that might not actually happen for another 80yrs if someone counted wrong.David Weber writes some great scenes The emotions he can evoke with his words are deep Some parts of this book have those moments.But it shouldn t have been published like this This was boring and pointless The stories may have needed to be written, but they shouldn t have been presented to us the way they were.If you are a long time fan, read it The voice is there.If you like your reading to have a point Your time is better spent elsewhere

    Finally, the first Safehold novel after the end of the war in At The Sign of triumph is here and it makes for an excellent read covering some 15 years March 901 to March 916 after a prelude between Merlin and Nahrmahn s avatar which is probably set in November 900 in shorter or longer snippets at various times and in various places, it starts with a recap ostensibly from The Life of Merlin Athrawes, Zhakleen Wylsynn,Tellesberg, Royal University Press, 4217 and ends with a bang almost lite Finally, the first Safehold novel after the end of the war in At The Sign of triumph is here and it makes for an excellent read covering some 15 years March 901 to March 916 after a prelude between Merlin and Nahrmahn s avatar which is probably set in November 900 in shorter or longer snippets at various times and in various places, it starts with a recap ostensibly from The Life of Merlin Athrawes, Zhakleen Wylsynn,Tellesberg, Royal University Press, 4217 and ends with a bang almost literally at a great stopping point, while showing the clear way forward in the storyline.In the meantime, lots of things happen and there is war, intrigue, romance the kids have been growing fast after all and there are quite a few weddings to boot , the legend of the Athrawes family is continued by Merlin s adopted daughter doing some heroic things too the son has to do theboring midshipman duty first I guess , but there are also some wrenching deaths mostly natural though not always , economic and political turmoil, revolution and dissolution of empires with the tragedies that ensue new and old heroes, new villains, new technologies, old enemies turning friends and vice versa and generally all one expects in a Safehold novel And as a small tidbit, a little text from when Merlin finally gets into the Temple fairly early on in the story btw in disguise of course but still part of visiting Archbishop Staynair guardIf I thought Owl could hack the Temple, break into the system and reprogram all thispageantry and turn it around on them He put the temptation behind him and focused on the ceremony unfolding all around him Highly recommended and a clear early favorite for my top novel of 2019.Below is probably my favorite passage from the book and one of my favorites from the series with a few names removed just to avoid major spoilers it takes place in late 911 which should be obvious for anyone doing the mathBecause we may be running out of time, she said very, very softly If the Archangels are coming back a thousand years after the Creation, and if they don t react the way we all hope and pray they will, I ll never see my twenty second birthday His arms tightened around her again, but her eyes never flinched If there s one family on the face of Safehold which will have to be destroyed if they try to reestablish the Proscriptions, shut down industrialization, it s mine They can t leave us alive, if that s the way they react I realized that the minute Mom and Dad and Merlin explained it to us In that respect, I m Nimue Alban and they re the Gbaba all over again, But you don t have to be But if you go home, if we arrange to grow estranged from your family and I m sure Mom and Dad would do that for your parents, your aunts and uncles, even if we could never explain to them why they re doing it then you and the other people you love may not have to be on the Archangels list So you can go home, tears glittered on her lashes, and a part of me wants you to do that, so badly Wants you to get as far away from me, from my family, as you can But the selfish part of me wants you to stay, and if we have only four years, thenIwantthoseyears, She looked up at him I can t announce our betrothal, not marry you the way I want Not right now, and I may never have time to do that, to give us and your family that, but I want that time with you I want to share it with you, to know you and I are husband and wife, whatever the rest of the world knows or doesn t know And the question I needed to ask you standing here, with you, is whether or not that s what you want The moon rode high and silver in a heaven of cobalt blue velvet, and the stars of Safehold were a magnificent diadem, draped across the night It was cool, for Charis in November, and the private chapel s open windows admitted the gentle night breeze that fluttered the candle flames.It wasn t an enormous chamber, although archbishops, as a rule, had larger chapels than mere bishops, and at the moment it was crowded Indeed, it was farcrowded than the casual beholder might have guessed.Maikel Staynair stood there, smiling as the young man standing at the sanctuary rail turned to watch an even younger woman enter the chapel She wasn t on her father s arm, because her father already stood at the groom s elbow as his best man She was on the arm of a very tall man whose sapphire eyes glittered in the candlelight That had been her parents choice, not her escort s, although Alahnah had agreed with tears in her eyes that if any living being deserved to stand sponsor to this marriage, it was Merlin Athrawes

    This is classic David Weber The early books are awesome The middle books get a bit weighty and ponderous, though in a necessary fashion as the world expands The later books become endless, slogging, back breaking tomes filled with nothing but meetings The latest Safehold sadly falls into this last category.Now I should point out that one of the reasons I love Weber s books early on in a series is their attention to detail as they move along But I m a historian by trade, and a teacher It s This is classic David Weber The early books are awesome The middle books get a bit weighty and ponderous, though in a necessary fashion as the world expands The later books become endless, slogging, back breaking tomes filled with nothing but meetings The latest Safehold sadly falls into this last category.Now I should point out that one of the reasons I love Weber s books early on in a series is their attention to detail as they move along But I m a historian by trade, and a teacher It s literally my job to take a wide swath of history and condense it in a way that will be accessible and entertaining for my students By the time I got to the end of this book I wanted to shoot myself It was an object lesson in how to fail at my job.There is value in doing a book that looks at the reconstruction after a war But it is admittedly harder to make a rip roaring swashbuckling adventure out of the economic intricacies of the Marshall plan, than it is to make one out of storming Sword Beach at Normandy on D Day There is a way to make an exciting economic thriller This simply wasn t it Much like therecent Harrington series entries Weber has simply gummed up the works Much like the Siddarmark Central Bank in this novel, he has become too big to fail So he just keeps trying to fix the mess by addingandstuff fromandperspectives.Trim it back Mr Weber Re focus This one was a stinker

    This was not a story It was a timeline 15 16 years The author picked points on the timeline and then told a little vignette It does not add to the overall story arc at all and had no story of its own I listened to the audiobook He took 30 hours to say, Time passed People died people got married children were born the economy fell, rose, and fell again I kept listening, afraid that I would miss something that would be pertinent to the overall plot, but there was nothing, until the last This was not a story It was a timeline 15 16 years The author picked points on the timeline and then told a little vignette It does not add to the overall story arc at all and had no story of its own I listened to the audiobook He took 30 hours to say, Time passed People died people got married children were born the economy fell, rose, and fell again I kept listening, afraid that I would miss something that would be pertinent to the overall plot, but there was nothing, until the last ten minutes.The ending was an author s cheap trick, but I won t spoil it.That entire thirty hours could have been condensed into a one two page introduction to the next book or even woven into the story as we needed to know who had died, etc And now, we have to wait how manyyears to find out how he actually plans to wind up the plot.I always thought this was an ingenious idea and even though I m not into all the military and technical explanations, I know many people like that sort of thing and I was willing to have it because the overall story was so novel But this most recent installment was worthless, uninteresting, and sleep inducing I certainly hope the next one makes up for it

    This novel should be one, perhaps two, chapters worth of material in the next novel in the series.1 Some people die peacefully of old age2 Some younger characters grow up and marry3 Mainland realms face challenges some successfully, some not so much, with and without help from Charis as is politically possible4 The expected denouement of the major plot item for this novel is a couple of pages of cliff hanger at the finish.I regret spending money on this the publisher should have rejected i This novel should be one, perhaps two, chapters worth of material in the next novel in the series.1 Some people die peacefully of old age2 Some younger characters grow up and marry3 Mainland realms face challenges some successfully, some not so much, with and without help from Charis as is politically possible4 The expected denouement of the major plot item for this novel is a couple of pages of cliff hanger at the finish.I regret spending money on this the publisher should have rejected it and I have no idea what the author thought he was doing David Weber, while verbose, generally plots his novels much better than this one Given spoilers to 3 and 4 a reader of the series should be able to skip this novel and read the next if published without missing anything of importance

    Until now I enjoyed Weber booiks but this is, by far, the worst one As other people said it NOTHING HAPPEN.We see the same problem again and again Too many characters introduced Who needs the story of Priest N 524 Too many meetings where nothing happen A useless PICA so they are supposed to influence the world and they basically do nothing Too many useless pages Who really want to know about the 2nd child of the 1st daughter Too many unused characters because of the 1st problem Not Until now I enjoyed Weber booiks but this is, by far, the worst one As other people said it NOTHING HAPPEN.We see the same problem again and again Too many characters introduced Who needs the story of Priest N 524 Too many meetings where nothing happen A useless PICA so they are supposed to influence the world and they basically do nothing Too many useless pages Who really want to know about the 2nd child of the 1st daughter Too many unused characters because of the 1st problem Not a reall story The whole book is useless You could have jumped in time with 30 50 pages to summarize and then begin the book

    I wish i had read the reviewsIt was just so full of filler It s like he is trying to see how long he can stretch out a series before everyone stops buying Not going to buy another in this series.

    Weber flogs a dead horse onetime The novel is a direct follow on from 9, the supposed final novel, it s not a new story arc and consists mostly of the main series characters nattering about the economy and current affairs What little action does take place is some bit character getting injured or killed, they should be wearing red shirts.A horrible novel, I couldn t finish it and will not read future novels in this series.

    The worst of the Safehold series Took forever because it just was not must read to finish There are a few bright spots but mostly just marriages, babies, and economic failures Disappointed as this was one of my favorite series.
