    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. ...

    What I found most interesting in this latest of Weber's Safehold series is that he actually tackled all of the problems of re-building a world after a calamitous war. He obviously drew on the post WWII recovery efforts as a starting point; picking and tweaking 20th C history to suit hi...

    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 lon...

    David Weber's fantastic Safehold series roars on like a mighty river, continuing to tell the story of a planet's medieval society contending with not only a massively-powerful central Church and the emergence of advancing technology. All immensely entertaining, although I had my usual ...

    On the one hand, it's a between-arc book, and as such does suffer somewhat from middle-book syndrome. On the other hand, it's a very good middle book. ...

    This is the tenth book in the Safehold series by David Weber. In this one the war between Charis, it's allies, and the Church Of God Awaiting is over. Now is the time for Merlin, Cayleb, Sharleyan and their friends and allies to push for as much technological advancement as possible wi...

    Tenth in the Safehold space opera science fiction series and revolving around warring factions: that upstart Charis with its technological innovations and its nerve to form a breakaway church and those countries who cannot accept that Charis has won. It's a whole new war that's more ab...

    2.5 stars. I sympathize with David Weber as he tried to write this latest book in the Safehold series: The conflict has truly become global and shifted primarily to economic warfare. How does one write about such a world-spanning conflict in such a way that it is exciting and compel...

    It's so weird to be giving weber 2 stars, but after 15 years of fandom, I'm growing tired of him ruining series with boring character point of views and unessescery plot developments. This book could be sumurized as All the old people die All the young couples have babies All the...

    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; p...

    I wish you could do a half star on these. I love David Weber's books, even on Book 10 of the same series. The only real issue I have on many of his works, is the exposition. In the Honor Harrington series, sometimes its a little to involved in the theoretical science and engineering se...

    I liked this book. I didn't love it. I'm sorry. I am a David Weber fan and I understand why this book was written. This is a transitional novel acting as a bridge between one major story arc and the next. The story: After winning the war, the major characters are preparing for t...

    A few months ago I learned losing something makes you feel 2-3x worse than a gain. For example, losing a $100 causes much more pain than the joy of gaining $1,000. So I started this book and had to finish it for that reason. And shouldn't have. Nothing happens. Literally, nothing. What...

    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 fall...

    OMG, I?m giving Weber 2-stars Nothing. 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 b...

    As with all of the books in this series, it is rather large, and I always find it necessary to skip vast sections of descriptions that don't seem to serve to move the story along. That said this series remains one of my favorites. And I really enjoyed the book, especially the last thir...

    Weber flogs a dead horse one more time. 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 characte...

    This is the tenth book of this series. I read the last two books preceding this one and thought that there was way too much material that meandered. I read this one, thinking that the author was going to say something to justify the 700 plus pages. I have read perhaps two dozen of Webe...

    First of all, I find David Weber's books very compelling, and am a fan of this series. What I liked about this book in particular were the economic and geopolitical maneuvers, as well as the technology, and was happy for the relief from constant war and carnage. The downside is having ...

    Downhill This book spans 26 years and should probably have been summarized as the opening chapter of the next book. It's nothing but filler until the very last chapter. Very disappointing. ...

    Over 700 pages to wade through, and enough content that could have been covered in a short novel. The Safehold series is a very exciting concept. But, after 10 books, it seems to me it is time to bring it to a close. I was hoping this one would do it. No. Without giving anything awa...

    I wish i had read the reviews It 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. ...

    A slow and plodding book. The main characters spend too much time in gooey, emotional scenes that do little for the story line. LOTS of peripheral characters killed off. It seems to have been written solely to set up the next book with younger characters, in large enough numbers to be ...

    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 N524 - Too many meetings where nothing happen - A useless PICA: so...

    "Through Fiery Trials" is effectively a book-length epilogue. The storyline that covered the world war between the corrupt church and its supporters and its would-be victims ended in book 9. TFT covers the next decade-and-change: We get to see who marries whom, we get to see the protag...

    Weaker than others Sorry, David. This is the least of the series of Safehold books. Where the others had action and suspense, this one seemed to be focussed on Charis trying to turn Safehold into a form of economic Utopia. We go from meeting to meeting and hardly a shot is fired. In...

    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 age 2. Some younger characters grow up and marry 3. Mainland realms face challenges; some successfully, some not so much, with and without help f...

    Safehold secrets! Safehold continues to be a complex, multifaceted world that pits technological development against the righteousness of the Church of God's Awaiting. Think back to the Spanish Inquisition and you're coming close to the nub of heresy and beliefs that stymie cultures...
