As much as I like Weber's writing, I have been slogging through his more recent works... From the beginning, this series has had a bit of a built-in roadblock with the authorr using the spelling of names to indicate 900+ years of language drift. (You see a name & it's, "Uh... What is that name? Is that spelling supposed to be this name or that name or something else? Which character is that?") Add too that the fact that his fabulous battle descriptions are almost totally missing and the extended meeting after meeting with discussions of what's going to happen, what's happening, what just happened rather than just doing it, and you see the truth of the statement that war is extended periods of boredom interrupted by moments of sheer terror, while, in a novel, we need more of the terror and less of the boredom...

Sadly, more of a regurgitation of industrial and military history...very little real creativity or story development.. even less character development. Not even a single "challenge" to the Proscriptions. If I wasn't comitted to following through on six previous installments, I would have cast this aside after the first few hundred pages. Distinct impression that Weber has fallen victim to the financial allure of "pay by the word" or "stage the sequel". Developed the impression that he was just going through the motions of cranking out another income stream. Hoping for a better effort in the next installment.

672 pages and the story hardly advances. Page after page of meaningless detail like regiment so-and-so led my so-and-so advancing on village nowheresville who never appears again in the story. Is someone getting paid by the word, living off those of us who have invested in 6 prior parts and cant let go?

Took me a couple of hundred pages to start getting straight again on the hundreds of characters. My main complaint with the series is that it has so far taken 7 books and around 5,000+ pages to cover what a faster paced 2-3 books could have with god knows how many more to culmination. Given that, I've enjoyed every one of them and will continue to buy them. That, I suppose, being the point.

About 3/4's the way through the book so far but I had to review it in the 'so far' state, due to my dismay at other site reviews, stating they did not like this book as it was some more of the same from MT&T, ("when are they going to get to the Gbaba..."). All I can say so far is: WOW!!!! To not spoil things at all, everyone knows of Irys' and Hektor's upcoming nuptuals, but the actual event is heart breaking then heart enlightning and a MAJOR turning point in the important players. The pace of technology advancement is up three to four times as MT&T, and the important bits of making everybody 'innovate', and not just copy, proves there will be NO going back, proving Langhorne's greatest fear has been realized, even if nothing else is accomplished by the 'heretics'. Also, although they are fighting in Siddamark, they are fighting ALL of the Armies of God (I ignore the Harchong), and if they are soundly defeated, there will be no Amies left in Haven to oppose a New Charisan presence on the mainland. Unfortunately, I'm sure the next book will be Feb 2015 or later, so my anticipation of maybe seeing the end of Clyntayn will not be whetted for quite a while. My advice, read when you can dedicate time to it, it's well worth it.

In the Seventh book of the Safehold series, "Like a Mighty Army" incorporates the many threads of the last two books, and adds depth to the story. No it is not the end but the "light and the end of the tunnel" is now starting to be seen. The action is well written as always, and I liked the at sea action as it reminded me of what I saw when I was in the service. Over all an excellent read and again Very Highly recommended.

After reading Like a Mighty Army I went back and re-read the first six book in sequence, then number seven again. The character growth and development through all seven books is a joy and a delight. When does number eight become available?

I finished the book in three sittings. It took a little bit of memory jogging to catch up at the beginning but once I got past that point there was no putting it down. I read it so fast I had the same feeling that you get after whoofing down dessert. Now I want more.

The entire series causes one to think about beliefs and faith. And why people differ in those beliefs. Great battles and how to make technology. It also ask the question do only the good guys have honor. Well researched and well delivered.
