This is the final volume of Weber's Safehold series. It is 758 pages long and reads like it. I usually pick up a Weber books and can't put it down until done. No problem putting this down. Lots of talk and not so much action. Now, that's not to say I didn't like it. I did, just not as much as the previous novels in the series. Weber did provide a satisfying ending to the series and if you've been following this tale you will be pleased as well. I look forward to Weber's next project whatever it is.
