    The Charisian Empire, born in war, has always known it must fight for its very survival. What most of its subjects don’t know even now, however, is how much more it’s fighting for. Emperor Cayleb, Empress Sharleyan, Merlin Athrawes, and their innermost circle of most trusted advisers do know. And because they do, they know the penalty if they lose will be far worse than their own deaths and the destruction of all they know and love.

    I am so very disappointed with Mr. Keating's reading that I am probably going to discontinue listening and spend an additional 15 bucks for a copy from Amazon.

    Mr. Keating's name and place pronunciations really annoy me after having listened to the other 4 books in the series. Both Mr. Culp and Mr. Wyman give far superior performances. Mr. Keating may be a fine narrator (I???ve not heard any of his other performances) but he was absolutely the wrong choice to bring in at this time.

    After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of the Church of God Awaiting - egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athawes. Now, in the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the populous Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos.

    Story

    A horrible narrator for a good book. I thought the narrator for How Firm A Foundation (Charles Keeting) was a poor choice but by comparison to Mr. Collins, Mr. Keeting turned in a virtuiso performance. How I wish I had listened to the preview before waisting a credit on this HORRIBLE revording.

    I have listened to and enjoyed all the other Safehold books but this will be the last. I will stick strictly to print fot the remainder of the books Mr. Weber writes in this series.

    The performance is so poor that I am sorry to say that I can only give this 1 star overall. The performance simply runis a wonderful book.
