This is a continuation of the Safehold series of novels by the author of the Honor Harrington novels.
Since declaring its independence from the corrupt
, the island
has fought to survive. But their subjects don't know what they are fighting for.
For five years, Charis has survived everything thrown at them from the sea. Now they must fight on the mainland, the church’s home ground to keep their independence. How do they invade and take the war to them when the massive numbers will torture and butcher any innocent they find while spreading lies wherever they go? Fomenting rebellion against the islands and assassinating leaders; Charis must find a way to stop them with the help of an avatar a thousand years from the past.
Those who have given their blood and honor to save their freedom. They will not make it easy for those who would take it from them.
Another superb book by David Weber, a complex political and military tapestry with gritty reality, great battle scenes, and characters who man and women them. Gripping, fast-moving, and full of action; those who love Honor Harrington will love this. I did. ~~ Pam Allan
