    "Great Ending To A Great Series"

    "March Upcountry" thoroughly grabbed my interest in a fascinating well told story with intimately described characters. The first book is still the best of the series, however I think "We Few" comes in a close second. The two other books in between, though also excellent, tended to get bogged down in battle after battle after battle.

    In "We Few" the authors do a good job in tying the story together and the book has just enough battle tactics mixed in with well developed characters to create a brilliant ending to a great story. I'm just sorry that it's over:-( Even though "We Few" is a good book on it's own, in my opinion you need to listen to the other books first in order to be able to "feel" and "visualize" everything that is going on.The series is definitely worth the four credits.

    "...Can I have some more?"

    The title of this review says it all. The ending was bittersweet but appropriate. I just love the characters and wish there were more books to follow. I gave this book 3 stars because it was so different from the preceding installments. I realize now that I was in love with the setting of scientifically advanced humans in such a primitive culture such as Marduk. I also missed a certain important character from the first 3 books.

    "Lots of Morts and Ordnance"

    This is a classic Weber solider story softened by the addition of Ringo’s story lines.
    I believe this book starts in the middle of a series, however, there is no mention of this anywhere – BUT – don’t let that stop those of you (us) who like Sci-Fi war stories.
    The reader is brought up to speed before the story gets rolling. I really would have liked a little more story and a little less description of the ordnance – but I enjoyed the ride. You may feel there is just enough morts and ordnance, give it a try.

    "The Conclusion(?) to the Prince Roger Series"

    We Few is the fourth and apparent concluding volume in the Prince Roger series from David Weber and John Ringo, though there have been rumours of a new Prince Roger book. Like the previous books in the series, We Few is excellent MilSF and a rousing good story. As an audio book, it works extremely well, with fast pace and good dialog. Stefan Rudnicki does his usual superb reading of the book, making the Audible edition even more appealing.

    If you haven't read the earlier books in the series, start with March Upcountry. But be prepared to be drawn into a world that is difficult to put down and that will have you finding reasons to listen longer than you usually do. If you're a runner or other distance athlete this is the perfect series to encourage extra miles.

    "A very good ending!"

    This is the last book of the series, but can be a "Stand alone" also. Moves fast and keeps on going! Prince Roger has matured.

    "A satisfying conclusion"

    I was surprised to read that some reviewers considered that the book was a quick ending to the series. To me it seemed well paced with plenty of action mixed with strategy. It is a fitting conclusion to the whole story, even though the door is open to a sequel.

    "It Was good, fast finish"

    I think some where in the last bits of writing this book these guys decided not to do any more of the series. so they finished the book a little fast. i mean prince roger really turned into a "King Arthure" for lack of a better example but when he gets home no one really cares, and its like save the day and here you go end book. the narrator does a great job across the series. its a good book just ended abruptly

    "David Weber AND John Ringo"

    Military Sci-Fi doesn't get much better. I have enjoyed the entire series although this is the first audio installment I have purchased. The storyline is great, but you'd probably do better to have read at least one of the previous books to enjoy this one.

    The narration is excellent with fairly minor nuances in tone and pitch for the different characters.

    I sure hope this isn't the last in this series. More Roger!

    "Cherry on top!"

    Wow! What a great find! Don’t you just love it when you try the first book in a series and you turn out to LOVE IT? Well that is exactly what happened here with me. I could not wait to download the next book, and they are all nice a long (so you get a lot of ‘bang for your buck.’) All of these prince Roger books are the kind of ‘long’ that goes by fast. There is plenty of satisfying action and the character development if great too. You really get to love each character and see what happens to them. This book is a little different because it is set in the context of advanced space. But as always, the writting and action won't dissappoint! I highly recommend each and every book in this series…If you like the first book your will like them all.

    "Great change of pace!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of We Few to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version so idk.


    What other book might you compare We Few to and why?

    That's rough, it feels very unique to me. Certainly, Ringo and Webber's other works bear similarities. This feels more Webber than Ringo to me. The Safehold series has an especially similar feel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The climax is great of course, but I also loved the scene where Roger took on the alien beast at the rester aunt.


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

    The lost prince charges home.


    Any additional comments?

    This is very different in feel than the others in the series. Very fitting progression of the story.

    "Good book - good series"

    I very much enjoyed this "Prince Roger" series and have listened to it more than once.



    For fans of epic science fiction this is a good buy - although the emphasis is more on low tech than high tech.
