When I started the way the Prince was described I thought that the series was going to be a joke but was I ever wrong. It just got better and better as I got deeper into it. Although I enjoyed the Honor Herrington series, I felt this one was far above it in excitement. It was definitely one that was hard to stop listening to when I had to quit. In the end, there were a few lose ends that could have been taken care of but with a little imagination I could fill in what I thought was going to happen. I recommend this series very highly for anyone who likes an exciting military experience.
The 4 Book Series is Simply Outstanding!....
I've listened to the series on 3 occasions and enjoyed it each time!
Highly Recommended to anyone who enjoys action and adventure when seemingly impossible odds are in play.
Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day
I plead a little Prince Roger fatigue after a couple of weeks of Marching Upcountry, to the sea and to the stars and I got my fill about the middle of book three in the series. This does go on and on and it fills the time I guess. Still enough is enough Mr. Weber. Try trimming a little fat and moving your stories along with more dispatch. I'm beginning to feel like I'm mired in slowsand (as opposed to quicksand) sinking slowly into boredom as the snails pace of your work keeps me just interested enough to see it to the end.
This Prince Roger series could have been better in three parts instead of four just like the Safehold series that has now bogged down to a tedious crawl after an interesting first 3 installments.
We Few is a great ending to the Prince Roger series. Before you read We Few, make sure you read the first three books of the series - March Upcountry, March to the Sea, and March to the Stars. We Few 'puts it all together.' Also, Stefan Rudnicki is the perfect narrator for the whole series. As usual, he is excellent in his characterizations. So start with March Upcountry - if you like that one, you'll certainly like the next three in the series.
this book is all about marines....plots, planned assault, conspiracy and..a mission and their honor and duty to fulfill it, in a future planet Earth.
If you like milatary novels, this will work out well.
On Audible since the late 1990s, mostly science fiction, fantasy, history & science. I rarely review 1-2 star books that I can't get through
The weakest of the four books in this series, it features a truly novel plan as to how Roger will regain the throne, only to entirely flub the execution. Characterization has never been this series's strongest suit, and far too much of this book is spent pondering the personalities of not particularly compelling people, eulogizing those who were killed in previous books, and introducing characters who are exactly the same as the aforementioned dearly departed individuals. There are a couple interesting hours scattered about, and you should finish the series if you have come this far, but, otherwise, skip it.
This is book 4 of the March Upcountry Series...first 5-10 minutes is synopsis...I think I'll wait for the first 3 books..
I am sure it is still a good listen, but the first 5 minutes really makes you want to hear the first 3 books.

I can not find the right words to describe what is wrong with this book. Poor quality work is all I can come up with.
I finished it just to see what happened to "Dogzard"
I enjoyed the first three. If it were not for Dogzard, I would want my money back. This book reads like an amateur's work
I stopped listening at the beginning of the last chapter, and only went back and finished it because I wanted to delete the file from my MP3 player. Still, if you are in for a penny, you are in for Twenty Five Dollars, so you might as will finish reading the story.
The Star Wars and Star Trek references were unnecessary, distracting, and out of place
O.K. The story line is good, though at times the amount of detail about imaginary places is overbearing. My problem with this latest episode is that the language and dialogue took a turn for the more "risque". Now the characters are more into foul language and sex. Not X rated, but certainly more towards "R" than the previous episodes. I had to finish it though with so much time invested, but if this was the first book. . .
I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.
This book has everything that we loved about the first three in the series, except that our heroes have finally made it off planet.
The stakes are higher, our band of heroes is smaller (and still shrinking, alas), and the story gets darker.
There are parts of Prince Roger's character arc that I'm not entirely convinced of, and more of the same long tactical and political conversations that bored me in the previous three books in the series are back to bore me again in "We Few." Likewise, Ringo and Weber deliver plenty of long, detailed fight scenes--some of which bore me tremendously. Maybe it's a pacing thing?
I will absolutely read the rest of this series. I want to know what happens next!
