David uses his descriptive talents to make his readers truly understand what society would be like in a true schism. His heros are truly heroic. And his villains are truly vile. I imagine Martin Luthor wished for an angel with Merlin's talents.
The sea battles in the story line were excellent and well set up. Descriptions of the terrible carnage when your enemies broadside is well aimed worthy of Patrick O'Brien or Alexander Kent.
The talent of a narrator like Oliver Wyman makes you feel the emotions of the characters in a way reading just can't do.
When Merlin understood the full impact the schism may have on the safeholdians.
All the safehold books are stand alone stories but do read the entire series.
