    Description

    The sequel to the New York Times best seller Off Armageddon Reef

    The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with better sailing vessels, better guns, and better devices of all sorts, Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them. Despite the implacable hostility of the Church of God Awaiting, Charis still stands, still free, still tolerant, still an island of innovation in a world in which the Church has worked for centuries to keep humanity locked at a medieval level of existence. 

    But the powerful men who run the Church aren't going to take their defeat lying down. Charis may control the world's seas, but it barely has an army worthy of the name. And as King Cayleb knows, far too much of the kingdom's recent good fortune is due to the secret manipulations of the being that calls himself Merlin - a being that, the world must not find out too soon, is more than human. A being on whose shoulders rests the last chance for humanity's freedom. 

    Now, as Charis and its archbishop make the rift with Mother Church explicit, the storm gathers. Schism has come to the world of Safehold. Nothing will ever be the same...in David Weber's By Schism Rent Asunder.

    Great Character's...Great World...No Story

    Only David Weber story in my collection that doesn't have 5 stars (and I have them all). I love his writing and thoroughly enjoy the world that he has created in Safehold. Unfortunately, I agree with everyone else that this book didn't exactly progress very much (at least from an action stand point).

    There is plenty of character development in this book but it is all political. I can see why some of the reviews were a little poor as a result. It lacks on the intense battles that are generally a staple of Weber. I still enjoyed the book and I can't wait for the next one. This felt a little like a set up book...

    Long but worthwhile

    This is the second book in the safe hold series and it's by far the better of the two so far. The story is a long build up but the pay offs are worth it. The author does go a bit overboard (pun intended) when describing ship battles. He goes into extreme detail about everything about them. If you're a fan of Scifi then I'm sure you will enjoy this. However! be aware that Oliver Wyman doesnt do the narration for book 3 so it may be a drastic change.

    A tad slow, but still excellent

    This second book in the series is a tad slow in terms of pacing. It's well written though and is clearly laying the groundwork for things that will come later. If you liked the first book, then I think you will enjoy this.

    Back to future

    This book was as good as the first one, a fine presentation of all the different characters, perfectly displayed of a great voice. The idea of beginning in the future, going seemingly backwards, to beginn or continue the story of a future we are being jammed into like a rocket on full thrust, never stops enjoying me! Thank you David Weber, for your imagination and your capability of sharing it with us merely mortals. Greetings, Bernard Hodneland
