War Maid’s Choice: War God, Book 4 | [David Weber]

War Maid’s Choice: War God, Book 4

In Wind Rider’s Oath, Bahzell became a wind rider - the first hradani wind rider in history. And, even if Bahzell is the War God’s champion, because the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell’s ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. What’s more, Baron Tellian’s daughter, the heir to the realm, seems to be thinking that he is the only man - or hradani - for her. Now, War Maid’s Choice continues the story - and things really get complicated.

“... irresistibly entertaining....” (Publishers Weekly)

“...fun adventure full of noble steeds, fierce female fighters, dark sorcery, serious swordplay, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek banter.” (Locus)

“...when Weber gets down to action, he’s hard to beat... a rollicking adventure that kept me turning the pages.” (SF Review Central)

    Story
    "Too much talking not enough doing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Have you ever been in a meeting at work and felt like it was a waste of time? That's how a good portion of War Maid's Choice feels. You listen in on characters having meetings about doing "important stuff". You listen in on characters listening in on other characters have meetings about doing "important stuff". Unfortunately a lot of that stuff isn't so important, and you get the feeling that these characters just like to hear themselves talk.


    If you’ve listened to books by David Weber before, how does this one compare?

    This book is similar to other Weber books in that it is more about the planing than the doing. While that's been a minor complaint of mine for the most part, starting with the last book Wind Rider's Oath, it's become increasingly distracting to the point where now I find it difficult to finish War Maid's Choice.

    No I haven't finished it yet. I think maybe this because the stakes seem so small. Some people want a canal built while others don't. Yes I know there are larger implications but it really doesn't feel like it.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to prior books in the series and he does an excellent job as usual. Too many of of the characters sound overly smug and stuck on themselves, but that's the fault of the story not him.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I'm getting burnt out on Weber's style of writing but I think I'm done with him for now. However if you like this series I can also recommend the Prince Roger series Weber coauthored with John Ringo. Although I'd suggest that you stop at book 3 in that 4 book series as the last book suffers a drop in quality and isn't really needed.

    "Good but too many story lines"

    Good but too many story lines to follow easily for me. If I had listened in one or two sessions it would have been better!

    "Great ending for this series"

    Unfortunately the series ends. I like this cast of characters and there are enough story lines left open for several more books. I can only hope that our author will come out of one of the other universes he occupies long enough to write them.

    "Faster"
    Where does War Maid’s Choice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very top of the list. outstanding plot and story lines.


    What other book might you compare War Maid’s Choice to and why?

    Anything David has written. Wife is blind so she listens to books. went thru Honer Harrington series, Prince series and all related books plus War God series in less than 8 weeks. Love Weber and wants to know why he can't write as fast and she reads (listens). LOL. Had read Harrington series before she lost her sight. Listening to them was just as enjoyable and will start over listen to them again.

    Story
    "How long will we have to wait for book 5"
    Would you listen to War Maid’s Choice again? Why?

    yes when book 5 comes out


    What does Nick Sullivan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought the performance was great


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to this series after my son told me it was one of his favorites. I was lucky enough to get to listen to all 4 books in a row and hope we do not have to wait years for book 5.

    "Great story dragged down by poor narration"

    I've really enjoyed the previous books in this series as ebooks, so I was looking forward to this continuation. Nick Sullivan's narrative style almost made me give up on it, though. His stop-start clipped enunciation sounds more like a movie trailer than someone reading a book aloud. After a time, I almost got used to his phrasing, but never quite.
