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 Safefold 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

  • Skip it

    Twelve hundred and thirty pages of monotonous, flaccid, anticlimactic baloney. You will literally be sitting there the entire time forcing yourself to go on to the next chapter. Sweet holy Langhorne that sucked. Make the next one as good as the last 14 paragraphs for Shan-Wei’s sake.
  • Good but needed to move faster

    This book is a long way in the series. It moves very slow, and seems like it's mostly not really necessary. you could skip reading it and wait for the next book or two and never miss not having read it. I do love the series, but it really needs to resolve the major plot point of the 1000 years thing soon.

    This volume in the series is huge waste of time. Feels like the author has not figured out where to take the series and felt compelled to write a very boring tome about the minute details of life on Safehold. Don’t waste your time or money. If you feel compelled to read wait til it hits your library.
