Unlike most of Weber's books, this one *didn't* climax in a huge battle. And despite the fact that I *love* Weber's battles, this was still an wonderful book. It's book three of his Safehold series (don't read this without reading the prior two), and Weber is really hitting his stride with the characters, the world, and the situation that he's stuck them all in. As a one-sentence summary, By Heresies Distressed is essentially the post-wedding consolidation of the new Empire of Charis, and the conquest of Corisande. There are certainly *some* battle scenes, and *some* technological superiority going on, but this is primarily a book that tells a story of political drama. If you had told me that politics what what the book was about before I'd started, I would have had serious reservations about starting it. But the truth is that it was hard to put down. Weber did a fantastic job of connecting all the dots and making a real *story* about what was going on. I was very impressed, and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next in the series. 5 of 5 stars.

A horse stood up and opened her eyes. She blinked and looked around the thicket taking in the scene. She smiled and struggled to trot away. She groaned and trotted five feet away smiling nonstop. She giggled and rolled. Her mom watched a happy feeling bubbling in her belly. She smiled as she thought"i have my first foal and shes a girl!"

i tried, i really did, but this series is slow, very slow. the books get shorter and shorter, less and less is happening in each volume. character A says something to character B then the whole thing is rehashed for a complete chapter to character C. i think the entire book could be condensed to less than 100 pages without losing a thing. i would continue with the series if they were reasonably priced, but in many cases the ebook is more costly than a paperback.

I wouldn’t trust them with a broken-down draft dragon.  Book Three of the Safehold series continues to impress. David Weber is the only author I’ve found who successfully figured out how to get sci-fi into a medieval world. It’s not cheesy at all, it’s completely awesome, and every time Nimue Alban bursts into cybernetic action I couldn’t be happier.  I also enjoy the clever way the author found to tackle the subject of religion, an interesting take that I don’t think I’ve seen since Dune. I’m not sure how many of these books there are going to be, but count me in for the entire ride!
