By Heresies Distressed by David Weber

This is the third book in the Safehold series which is up to book five by now.  A planet lost from an alien intelligence that has wiped out mankind except for Safehold.  

Safehold is really all that safe.  A corrupt theocracy controls the planet through a thoroughly venal church establishment.   That control is being threatened by a small kingdom of adept sailors aided by a artificial intelligence left over from the destroyed galactic empire of man.

Once again imbues a book with the courage, hope and despair that can move you emotionally.   He has the ability to paint characters of such likeable and despicable natures that your are seduced into long hours of unceasing reading.   The guy is superb.   I can’t wait to read the next book.  

The Machiavellian nature of both the good and the bad, the sheer courage and nobility of the protagonists make this another superior milestone for Weber.

I highly recommend the book .

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
