The Church of God Awaiting's triumph over Charis was inevitable. Despite its prosperity, the Charis was a single, small island realm. It boasted less than 2 percent of the total population of Safehold. How could it possibly resist total destruction? The Church had every reason to be confident of a swift, crushing victory, an object lesson to other rebels.
But Charis had something far more powerful than simple numbers. It had a king, a crown prince, and a navy prepared to die where they stood in its defense. It had the Brethren of Saint Zherneau, who knew the truth about Safehold's founding. Who knew that the Church of God Awaiting was a monstrous lie. And it had Merlin Athrawes, last survivor of long-vanished Earth. Merlin, the cybernetic avatar of a woman dead over 1,000 years, who was determined to break the Church's grip upon the human mind and soul.
So after eight years of war, it is not Charis but the Church that stands upon the brink of defeat. But the Church still commands immense resources, and - faced with the unthinkable - it's decided that it, too, must embrace the forbidden technology that has carried Charis so far.
In the end it is simple, for only one can survive. The lines are drawn, the navies and armies have been raised, and all of Safehold is poised for the final battle between those who believe in freedom and those who would crush it forever.

Wow wow wow
This is a great end to the beginning and yes a long way to still travel but what a book. This was probably my favorite of the Safehold books so far. Oliver Wyman is such a treat to listen too as well. If you are new to the series I recommend starting starting with book one. Also know this even though this book is around 40 hours it goes by fast. Thank you Mr. Weber for yet another fantastic work I will enjoy time and time again.

About time the story moved on...
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
If you have hung around this long, you are probably in for the duration like me. If not, I would recommend waiting until the author finishes before starting.
Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Oliver Wyman is perfectly fine as a narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, but no spoilers here!
Any additional comments?
I might not live long enough to finish this series, and the author is the same age as me...
