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.

What the Critics Say

“... 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)

    "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.

    Story
    "Another great fantacy by a scifi writer"
    Would you consider the audio edition of War Maid’s Choice to be better than the print version?

    I dont belive it is better because I can imagine the scene more thoroughly if I read, but I sometimes miss things if I read, that I catch when I listen,


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continuation of the charactors from the previous novels.


    What aspect of Nick Sullivan’s performance would you have changed?

    More diferentation between charactors


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hero saves the world and gets the girl - medieval style


    Any additional comments?

    no

    Story
    "To be continued"

    In regular David Weber fashion this series has moved away from the action adventure it was in the first book towards some sort of pseudo political drama. There are factions, plots and mischievous villains meet in dark rooms for (lengthy) discussions of dastardly plans. There is even a touch of romance as the tile suggests. But what David Weber does best is still action, so what if you have to fast forward past some bits, the action and the scaffolding surrounding it is still good.
    This is the fourth book in this series so yeah, you should all know what tis all about by now.

    Story
    "A Long Drawn out Listen"

    I've read almost all of David Weber's books and this is the first I've ever wanted an abridged version of. The first 4 hours or so were a real slog to get through, after that there were some moments of excitement but they were few and far between.

    As Jonathan mentioned in the previous review the constant repetitive discussions on the economic impacts of the canal, along with the awful dialogue of the bad guys made it a real struggle to stay awake.

    Nick Sullivan did a great job with what he had to work with and was probably the only reason I managed to make it through the entire book. I'll certainly be waiting for some detailed reviews before purchasing any subsequent books in the series.

    "Oh no.. At lest I can say I did not see that one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of War Maid’s Choice to be better than the print version?

    Who cares? Print is good audio is good it really depends on who in the mood for what at what time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well I had assumed that I could predict David's next move with this book and well he threw me a good one. Guess that is I get for being full of myself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yep there was, and I ain't going tell ya..... your going have to read it yourself but it dose involve to coursers and their riders.
