Outstanding -but left me with "but where is the final/next in the series"

I bought this 2 months prior to it's NookBook release, went back & re- read #4 the week prior to getting this so I'd be up to speed with the storyline. Thought it was the last in the series (most are 3 or 4 books except the Honor Harrington series). WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE...
I bought this 2 months prior to it's NookBook release, went back & re- read #4 the week prior to getting this so I'd be up to speed with the storyline. Thought it was the last in the series (most are 3 or 4 books except the Honor Harrington series). WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE COMING OUT???? Finally got more info on what the"Key" is, still don't know what the result will be when it's used, & really, really want to know! Great, classic Weber story, very different from the Space battles & others of his usual military SF. Now, how many more in the series, and will I have forgotten this one by the time the next comes out? Not interested in "Out of the Dark" - vampires were popular in 1934, if they're considered the "in" thing now, it's because this generation got hooked on vampires who are sexy on TV. Now, someone tell all of Weber's fans when the Safehold series will continue!!! Got Nook to get books fast, but read the first 4 books of Safehold in just 2 weeks (yes I'm a fast reader). Takes too long between books in a series. Also, is there a follow-up to Harrington's "At All Costs"? Most of the Weber books, including the Harrington books are NOT available on Nook books, unless you read German, which I don't. How about putting more of Weber's books on Nook, as well as L.E. Modessitt, Jr. & John Ringo?? I prefer Nook, since the 500 books I have in hardcover & paperback are moving me out of my house!

I always enjoy David Weber's writing. This book, however, was disappointing (to say the least) in this series. It plodded along in many spots -- way too much detail about the technical aspects and not enough about the personal aspects. I do understand that yyou need the technical to explain the progess of the science and why that progress is affecting the war and the personal areas of people's lives. I just think it's too emphasized., I would recommend it to those who are reading the series, but not to those who haven't read the previous books in this series. Mr. Weber's fans will know what to expect and, thus, not be surprised.
