I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the characters. I'm so glad that they were developed further and the character arc was noticeable and developed with talent.
the Safehold series has become one of my all time favorites. A long and very involved story incorporating many colorful characters that you will come to cheer for maybe even love as I have. I highly recommend you start the series at the beginning. Do not miss this series.
Audible is the balm for an itch I can't scratch that sits right between my ears.
I love the mix of religious turmoil, technological innovation and political intrigue. I also love a epic and this certainly fits that mold.
I've not checked if this series pre or post dates the honor series but in either case I love the fact that there are so many nods to character and places in this universe.
This is the second time round for me with this book. First time I read it, this time I'm listening to it. I can only say that some things do get better the second time around, much better. How something that was already a perfect story can become so much better than perfect is of course in the telling. The narrator has caught the mood of the book series absolutely perfectly.
Too heavy with the religious nonsense for me, though since the premise is a global church I guess a more realistic atheist view from the main character was too much to hope for...
