Publisher's Summary

In The War God's Own, Bahzell had managed to stop a war by convincing Baron Tellian, leader of the Sothoii, to "surrender" to him, the War God's champion. Now, he has journeyed to the Sothoii Wind Plain to oversee the parole he granted to Tellian and his men, to represent the Order of Tomanak, the War God, and to be an ambassador for the hradani. What's more, the flying coursers of the Sothoii have accepted Bahzell as a wind rider-the first hradani wind rider in history. And since the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell's ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. That combination of duties would have been enough to keep anyone busy-even a warrior prince like Bahzell-but additional complications are bubbling under the surface. The goddess Shigu, the Queen of Hell, is sowing dissension among the war maids of the Sothoii. The supporters of the deposed Sothoii noble who started the war are plotting to murder their new leige lord and frame Bahzell for the deed. Of course, those problems are all in a day's work for a champion of the War God. But what is Bahzell going to do about the fact that Baron Tellian's daughter, and heir to the realm, seems to be thinking that he is the only man - or hradani - for her?

Running the Gears

The reader is excellent, and like the author, only improves with each book in this series. Furthermore, all four books read like power shifting of a manual transmission; your head snaps back as each book accelerates past the previous novels; a very satisfying experience.

# 3 Good and I want more.

I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) If you want to know more about what I think, check out the review for War Maids Choice. Thank you.

a nice series...but

I really love the characters, the humor, and the bro-mance, but the constantly going back and forth to cover all the bad guys gets to be to much after a while, especially in book three and four. by book four i gave up and started fast forwarding through the chapters that deal with how the bad guys think and what they plan. once you have covered their actions and beliefs, there's not much more than endless repetition; gloating about how clever they are and later consternation when the good guys come in and whack them. once you've gone through the process once or twice you basically know what they are going to say and do, and by book three and four its a worn out formula. over all an enjoyable series and i think the narrator did a great job. not a great story, (though it could be if they cut out all those villein chapters), but well worth the listen.

I can't wait for the next book!

This is a strong continuation of the War God series. If you liked the previous two books, you will like this one as well. The themes are getting a little bit old at this point, but that is probably because I just listened to the previous two books. The world is getting to be more fleshed out and deeper in general, and I can't wait for the next book to come out sometime this year.

Adventures of Heroes

This is an adventure that still features our favorite Hadrani, but it also pays attention to many other heroes and develops the overall story nicely. A solid entry in the series.

Had such high hopes the villans seemed smarters

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listen to them while i'm working outside beats music.

Would you be willing to try another book from David Weber? Why or why not?

Yah going to finish the series but would not start another from him his hero's are too indestructible with everything turning in there favor....worst thing to befall them in all 3 books is a lost ear and 2 fingers even though few hundred boarding on thousand are dead
at their feet.

Disappointing departure

Any additional comments?

The first books involved a barbarian fighting assassins and demons and trying to thwart an invading army. The first quarter of this book (all I finished) was interminable yammering about shallow political infighting by one-dimensional characters. Terrible.

Entertaining and fun

I've a big imagination so this story was a sumptuous meal. Continuing from the previous books in the series the character development is nicely done providing a fullness of interesting qualities. I enjoyed the attention to details in the fight scenes and of history, values and environment. The bad guys are good at the being bad and the good guys are equally gifted. The gods are clever, interesting and fun and godly. I like the performance, a rich, creative and professionally done job.

Should have stopped.

All hail Bahzell Bloodyhands. Capable of killing demons with a look, kills armies with but a wave of his sword, and can't kick a stone without saving the world.
David you should kick yourself you dumbass.
It's one thing to save your main character with a devilishly good plan or luck, but Bahzell should have been killed a thousand times. I bet if you dropped a nuke on Bahzell he would still be living.
I know it is hard but you need something called tragedy. Tragedy you dag. Kill somebody off, emotion damn it. Make one of the good guys flawed beside making everyone a superman or batman.
