    The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with a multitude of small technological improvements - better sailing vessels, better guns, better devices of all sorts - Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them.

    Overall

    This time, politics, intrigue and romance from David Weber. It doesn't seem like we moved much closer to the end of the series, but the journey is going to be a fun one.

    There were some very interesting plot twists, but mostly I just keep wanting to cheer for the good guys.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    What didn’t you like about John Lee’s performance?

    There is way to much dynamic range in the performance. When the narrator speaks softly, I can hardly hear. When he speaks loudly it hurts my ears.

    Now the battle for the soul of the planet Safehold has begun.The Kingdom of Charis and the Kingdom of Chisholm have joined together, pledged to stand against the tyranny of a corrupt Church. The youthful Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm has wed King Cayleb of Charis, forging a single dynasty, a single empire, dedicated to the defense of human freedom.

    James says: "I want Oliver Wyman back"
    "a grand and sweeping tale"
    Overall

    My imagination has been completly carried away by this series, of which this volume is the third installment. I find the detail and scope of the series breathtaking. In fact in all of the science fiction I have read and listened to, I have never seen anyone attempt such an ambitious project. And Weber has done this successfully.

    Additionally, I am enjoying the characters and enjoying watching them grow.

    I can't wait for the next installment.
