Publisher's Summary

Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans. Prince Roger must somehow retake the empire from the men who control it before his new brother is born and his mother dies. It's an impossible task, but Prince Roger knows all about impossible tasks.

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.

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.

I dont know what happened to this one!

I have to say, this last book started well and ended with a flop for me. I really think the ending is disappointing and lacking. Personal opinion obviously, but i was hoping for more at the end of this saga.

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!

Needs another book - better ending!

Need a better ending. This epic story needs another book to do justice to the world the authors have created for us. Give us more.

Great until the last five minutes

Great book but the last five minutes of it feel rather rushed, as if running out of space or word limit.

Patients needed but well worth the listen

Any additional comments?

Having listened to this book I was most disappointed to find out that it had been Miss listed as book 1 when it is actually book 3 of 5 very good novels. Having said that it was very enjoyable and do hope that audible add books 4 and 5 to there listings. I can recommend this book to anyone but listen to books 1 and 2 first.

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.
