    Terrific saga

    While marooned for eight months (and three books) with the Empress Own marines on Marduk, Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chaing MacClintock learns to survive the hard way while watching most of his comrades die. Death turns Roger from hedonistic ¿Playboy Prince¿ to leader of the Bravo Company; his troops would die for him as many already have as ¿The Basik's Own¿......................... Freed from Marduk, he learns that his biological father and Prince Jackson Adoula of Kellerman overthrew his mother Empress Alexandra, killed his siblings and her grandchildren, blamed Roger for the murders, and use the former ruler as a puppet. Roger and his unit of twelve soldiers supplemented by a few hundred Mardukans, a ghost and a few other people need allies. However first he must prove he is innocent before they can confront Adoula and his sire, and hopefully rescue his mother. Yet those he needs on his side are apt to kill him before he can say one word to persuade them that he did not kill his siblings or others of his kin and that he is worthy of their support as he is no longer the Playboy Prince, but instead a fighting leader with a cause.................. The latest Prince Roger fantasy is an action packed tale with the freshness that the playboy is back ready to perform as heroic rescuer. Roger¿s metamorphous seems genuine and the support cast is superb especially his parents, Adoula, the ghost, and the hero¿s pet. Although newcomers would be better off reading the previous novels as references refer to those tales, WE FEW can stand alone as a stirring military continuation of a terrific saga....................

    Roger kicks butt and takes names!

    I'll admit, if you haven't read 'March Upcountry', 'March to the Sea' and 'March to the Stars' you might feel a little lost on this one but I can guarantee if you want to catch up, you won't be disappointed! Roger proves himself to be his mentors' best student by orchestrating a multi-pronged mission to rescue his mother, the Empress of Man, from the evil traitors who control her by force. Along the way we see diplomacy, political intrigue, high stakes clandestine operations, all out ground war, space battles, romantic wrangling, culinary triumphs & emotional upheaval. There was so much going on at such a roller coaster pace I was certain the authors would never tie it up at the end. I was wrong, they did so masterfully. The final scene was one of the best I've ever read in a series. A satisfying read.

    I came to this series because the title of the first book, "

    I came to this series because the title of the first book, "March Upcountry" resonated, provoking memories of Xenophon's "Anabasis" which I read many years ago. By the time the four shuttles of the Bronze Barbarians had landed in that Mardukian salt flat, I was hooked. I was not, and still am not, a particular fan of science fiction, but I've become a fan of David Weber. After finishing "We Few" quite recently, the hook has been set deep indeed. While the fourth book wraps up the series nicely, it was -- in my estimation -- what Churchill once referred to as "the end of the beginning." Prince Roger's journey, with his companions both human and Mardukian, leaves me hungering for more -- much more. It has been said that Mr. Weber feels the series is concluded, while his co-author, Mr. Ringo, wants it to continue. I will hazard a guess that there are many, many readers who feel as Mr. Ringo does, and would welcome more about the new emperor of the Empire of Man. If Mr. Weber can extend the Honor Harrington series to the extent he has, he can hopefully do the same for Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang MacClintock and The Basik's Own. And I hope that he will.
