Description

In David Weber's By Heresies Distressed, the battle for the soul of the planet Safehold has begun.
The Kingdom of Charis and the Kingdom of Chisholm have joined together, pledged to stand against the tyranny of a corrupt Church. The youthful Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm has wed King Cayleb of Charis, forging a single dynasty, a single empire, dedicated to the defense of human freedom. Crowned Empress of that empire, Sharleyan has found in Cayleb's arms the love she never dared hope for in a "marriage of state." In Cayleb's cause, his defiance of the ruthless Group of Four who govern mother Church, she has found the task to which she can commit her mind and her courage. It is a cause for which she was born.
Yet there are things Sharleyan still does not know. Secrets Cayleb has not been permitted to share, even with her. Secrets like the true story of humanity on Safehold. Like the intricate web of lies, deception, and fabricated "religion" which have chained humanity for almost a thousand years. Like the existence of the genocidal alien Gbaba, waiting to complete mankind's destruction should humans ever attract their attention once more. Like the existence of a young woman, Nimue Alban, nine hundred years dead, whose heart, mind, and memories live on within the android body of the warrior-monk she knows as Merlin.
And so Empress Sharleyan faces the great challenge of her life unaware of all that task truly entails...or of how the secrets the man who loves her cannot share may threaten all they have achieved between them...and her own life.

        May 4, 2009
        In this tangled follow-up to 2008's By Schism Rent Asunder
        , the corrupt Church of God Awaiting has ruthlessly suppressed technology on the planet Safehold for the past 800 years. Merlin Athrawes, a cybernetic avatar bodyguard serving the king of Charis, has introduced a sequence of innovations that allow the united island kingdoms to defeat the Church's agents, but the Church's rulers soon adopt the very technology they proscribe. Their greater resources, combined with a fanatical fifth column not averse to assassination, make the long-term prospects of the “heretical” empire appear bleak, especially as Charis must pause to pacify new territories while responding to recent massacres. The personalities and motivations of the numerous characters are particularly well drawn and credible, and Weber makes grand strategies and political machinations easily accessible to casual readers.

      • content: The planet Safehold has not seen the advancement of technology for nearly a thousand years due to the corrupt Church of God Awaiting, which reigns supreme over the land. When one man believes he has found the technology necessary to overthrow the leaders, they turn the tables and accept what they have so long denied. Jason Culp's narration lags in places, particularly while relating Weber's lengthy descriptions, but his characters are rich and layered. Demonstrating the ability to create believable accents with little descriptive help from the prose, Culp allows listeners to lose themselves in the story regardless of its lack of narrative drive.

        November 1, 2009
        This third volume in Weber's (www.davidweber.net) "Safehold" seriesfollowing "By Schism Rent Asunder" (2008), also available from BBC Audiobooks America and Macmillan Audiocontinues his tale of an epic struggle between religion and technology on a distant planet populated by human colonists in the remote future. Jason Culp's ("The Finder") workmanlike narration is adequate but does not greatly invigorate Weber's often pedestrian prose. Given Weber's popularity, this title should attract plenty of listeners; those unfamiliar with the series, however, might have trouble making sense of the narrative. [The Tor hc was described as "another fascinating chapter in an sf epic" that "series fans will demand," "LJ" 5/15/09; the fourth volume, "A Mighty Fortress", will release in March 2010.Ed.]R.
