Publisher Description

David Weber's New York Times bestselling Safehold series of military Science Fiction adventure, which began with Off Armageddon Reef, continues with Midst Toil and Tribulation

WAR AND FAMINE

Once the Church of God Awaiting dominated all the kingdoms of Safehold. Then, after centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of Mother Church--egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athrawes, who enjoys the Charisian royal family's absolute trust.

What vanishingly few people know is that Merlin is the cybernetic avatar of a young woman a thousand years dead, felled in the war in which aliens destroyed Earth...and that since awakening, his task has been to restart the history of the long-hidden human race.

Now, reeling from the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the Republic of Siddermark slides into chaos. The Church has engineered a rebellion, and Siddermark's all-important harvest is at risk. King Cayleb and Queen Sharleyan struggle to stabilize their ally, which will mean sending troops--but, even more importantly, preventing famine. For mass starvation in Safehold's breadbasket is a threat even more ominous than civil war...

Great story

Read it. But, start from book one

Consistency consistency consistency…

I've listened to the first 5 audiobooks of this series and I'm well into this, the sixth. I like it quite a bit - very similar to all of Mr. Weber's stuff, but it's kept me very entertained....

HOWEVER....After the first two books - every audiobook has had a different reader. This hasn't really bothered me at all until this one. The reader pronounces most of the proper nouns DRASTICALLY differently....Even calling Michael Stayner - "Mak-ay-el Stayner." Charis is now pronounced CH-aris instead of Karis....Even Sharleyan's name has been changed to CHAR-leyan....The change in reading style (much more dramatic in this book) and the massive change in pronunciation make this jarring to listen to compared to the previous book....you would have thought the narrator would have listened to at least SOME of the previous recordings...or the editor...or SOMEONE....
