Publisher Description

With new alliances forged and old regimes fractured, Merlin—the cybernetic avatar of Earth's last survivor and immortal beacon to humanity—and the colonies of Safehold have many adventures ahead in Through Fiery Trials, the continuation of David Weber's New York Times bestselling military science fiction series

Those on the side of progressing humanity through advanced technology have finally triumphed over their oppressors. The unholy war between the small but mighty island realm of Charis and the radical, luddite Church of God's Awaiting has come to an end.

However, even though a provisional veil of peace has fallen over human colonies, the quiet will not last. For Safehold is a broken world, and as international alliances shift and Charis charges on with its precarious mission of global industrialization, the shifting plates of the new world order are bound to clash.

Yet, an uncertain future isn't the only danger Safehold faces. Long-thought buried secrets and prophetic promises come to light, proving time is a merciless warden who never forgets.

“Vast, complex, intricate, subtle, and unlaydownable....The biggest thing in science fiction since Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.”—Dave Duncan on the Safehold series

Through Fiery Trials

Not his best in the series considering the ending. Seemed like it was a bit rushed.

Terrible plot

After so many good books in the series, this book was scattered and boring with minimal action. Definitely skip this book.

After so many good books in this series, suddenly it’s all politics (and regurgitated, cut and paste religious passages) and if there is one thing I’ve had enough of the last two years it is politics. Even the characters were uninteresting and those who we’ve grown to love were all dialog and zero action. Disjointed, loose ends. Read the first and last chapters and let’s hope the ball moves a little more rapidly in the next book in the series.
