Whew! A very big, big book. This was the fourth in the Safehold series and it was just like the rest, very, very, very detailed as to characters and the things they interact with. I don’t sail but after reading this book, I could probably say some strange sailing words that would sound like I knew what I was talking about.
The story continues with the Empire of Charis attempting to confirm all the lands they have conquered so far. I like the main characters and how they interact, but there are so many other characters in the book that it’s very hard to keep track of them all. Not only the good guys/gals, but also the bad ones too. And everyone seems to be related to everyone else some how some way! If you hadn’t read the previous three books, I’m not sure this would be the one to jump into.
And I still don’t know if the series is done. The story didn’t really end, there’s more work to be done and all the bad guys didn’t get their due. So, surely there will be another book, maybe? Hopefully?
Great read, just be prepared to get involved very deeply in the lives of everyone in the book.
