This entry in the series focuses the efforts of the Church to destroy the rebels kingdom of Charis. Plenty of battles plus the efforts of Merlin to improve the technology of this new world that the human race has settled on. Lacks the tension of the first in the series but it certainly moves the series on at a good pace.

Weber did a great job here. I really love his writing for the evocative battles, yet this book didn't have many --- what it did have was characters making important, honorable (and hard!) decisions, and making some stirring speeches.

This is the second novel in Weber's "Safehold" series; don't read this one without reading the first, and don't expect all the loose ends to be tied up neatly by the end of the book.

5 stars out of 5.
