I am still thoroughly enjoying this series. While the action of the first few books has abated in these last couple, I am fascinated with the watching the changes of Safehold in both the political and the religious arenas.

The first few chapters really didn't engage me or seem to have any great bearing on the story as a whole but it did not take long to get back into the world of Safehold and become invested in the characters lives and deaths.
The switch to steam power is fascinating though I shall miss the age of sail as it disappears from the books. I like the new 'rebel' characters that have been introduced through the land battles in Siddermark, I think some of their stories were the best in the book.

This is definitely one of my favorite series and I look forward to enjoying the rest of them.

Continues the saga of the planet SafeHold and how Merlin the cyborg is slowly increasing the technology. Love the bits about the sea, but some of the tactics are a difficult read. Necessary to the plot, but a little slow.
