This 4th offering in the series, while a good read... Seems rushed and the gaping holes in the "Romance" and Canal plots will leave you scratching your head. There's a significant time-skip with hardly any information on what happened during those missing years; its a dizzying departure from the other books in the series which happen shortly after each other. After waiting YEARS for this book to come out, I must confess to a measure of disappointment in the overall quality of this novel. The overall taste and feel of the book is of an author busy with another series and not enough time to properly write for a second one. I'd have rather waited a few more years to see this novel done right than what was published.

Amazing book! Lots of intrigue, battles gods and lock butt female leading characters!

Rather then telling the story of the heroes, Weber has chosen to tell the history of how the peices all moved on the board. Well over half of the book is spent with the villians of the peice drawing out their master plan to bring down the heroes. The book has a very large cast of characters that tell the history from their point of view - all too often with the pedantic voice of a history professor who does not realize most people do not share their interest in every detail of every motivation felt or witnessed by a particular historical figure. Frequent jumps from character to character make it difficult to identify with any of the heroes of the peice or the situation the find themselves in, as the book lingers lovingly only on the mastermind villain of the peice. Brandark is almost entirely absent from these pages, present only by convience and almost as an aside. Even the battle scenes, once Webers greatest strength as an author, suffer from this flitting from character to character. As a result, the battles feel almost truncated. The rich and vivid imagery is still present, but is so fractured by the changes of character that it is almost impossible to lose yourself in the battle unfolding. Sadly, this has been the overall direction of Webers writing. I miss terribly the voices of Bhazell and Brandark, of their reactions to the situations they encounter, with only an occasional interlude to show something new is being thrown at them. Instead there are the voices of all the movers and shakers, the voices of messengers and assassins, the three page voices of supporting players, to clutter up the story and drown out the voices of best friends sharing a difficult journey that will shape their world.

Quite often a writer looses the story after the third book but David Weber never seems to. As usual a great read.

I am a big fan of David Weber's writings, primarily through the honor Harrington series. This does not pretend to be at the same level. I found the title to be mildly related to the actual story and the long gap between the last book and this left me wondering what had happened in the interim. A few pages devoted to that would be helpful. In any case, it was a good read for a winter's evening in front of the fire.
