Présentation de l'éditeur

For centuries, the world of Safehold, last redoubt of the human race, lay under the unchallenged rule of the Church of God Awaiting. The Church permitted nothing new—no new inventions, no new understandings of the world.

What no one knew was that the Church was an elaborate fraud—a high-tech system established by a rebel faction of Safehold’s founders, meant to keep humanity hidden from the powerful alien race that had destroyed old Earth.

Then awoke Merlyn Athrawes, cybernetic avatar of a warrior a thousand years dead, felled in the war in which Earth was lost. Monk, warrior, counselor to princes and kings, Merlyn has one purpose: to restart the history of the too-long-hidden human race.

And now the fight is thoroughly underway. The island empire of Charis has declared its independence from the Church, and with Merlyn’s help has vaulted forward into a new age of steam-powered efficiency. Fending off the wounded Church, Charis has drawn more and more of the countries of Safehold to the cause of independence and self-determination. But at a heavy cost in bloodshed and loss—a cost felt by nobody more keenly that Merlyn Athrawes.

The wounded Church is regrouping. Its armies and resources are vast. The fight for humanity’s future isn’t over, and won’t be over soon…

David Weber’s Like a Mighty Army is the hotly anticipated seventh volume in the New York Times bestselling Safehold series.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish it were more than just okay 21 février 2014

If you read Weber because you love long, exquisitely detailed, excruciatingly descriptive passages describing mayhem and massacre, then you'll love this book.

If you read Weber because you enjoy the characters he creates, you'll be disappointed by this book.

There is very little in the way of character development in this installment in the series, and we don't even get to interact much with already established characters.

I'm not sorry I bought the book, but I am getting tired of the series not really moving forward much. All that happens in this installment is that the Good Guys' army hits back at the Bad Guys' army. We don't move any closer to finding out about what's lurking under the Temple. We don't find out anything new about the orbital bombardment system. We don't escalate, or even examine much, let alone resolve, the growing conflict in the group of four. Absolutely no action is taken toward developing the technology needed to hit back at the Gbaba.

And, of course, the naming conventions have become more than merely tedious.

Mr. Weber, enough already. If you're going to write books that are more than six hundred pages long, you really need to move things along.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Middle Book Syndrome for the series 22 février 2014
Par Terry Dean - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Okay, I liked this series (Safehold) when it started. However, for the last couple of books, the series has entered Middle Book Syndrome. This occurs in the middle book of a trilogy when it lacks the first book's originality and the last book's satisfying conclusion. Nothing of any real consequence happens in this book! Plot is not advanced, discoveries are not made, nothing is resolved. There were a few moderately interesting events buried in this pile of words, but it was a chore to get to them.

I saw this happen in The Wheel of Time series and hated it. I don't know if I can last to the end of this series.

I've waded through all of the books in this series and I've finally reached a point when I want to scream Enough!!! The book claims to be 673 pages long but that's only if you include the appendix.The actual story ends around page 585. If you edit the story down to information that moves the plot, it drops to under 200 pages. The rest of the book is filler and while some people really enjoy Mr. Weber research and attention to detail, I find it maddening. The only way I could get through the book was to skim over his descriptive passages to find the meat of the story. The POV continually changes as we follow the action in multiple arenas on Safehold and you'll be subjected to more detail than you ever wanted or needed to know about the development of revolvers, cannon rifling, land mind, ship building and a myriad of other topics. I understand the need to do the research in order to make the tale more realistic, I just think that shoving it down our throats thinly disguised as part of the story disrupted the flow and bored me comatose..This book end on a cliffhanger and we have no hope that the next book will see an end to this series, Merlin and crew have stated that once Safehold is secure, the idea is to take the war to the Gbaba. It could go on for decades at this rate.

I have nearly every one of Weber's books and have them in hardback so i can feel the heft But when it takes 66 pages (!) to list his characters in the series "heft" suddenly becomes insufficient.to describe the sprawl. In the early volumes Harold and Caleb (gosh - two vowels in his name - how did that one get past Weber's impossibly unreadable naming convention?) were well realized but by now Caleb and his Empress just show up now and then to provide exposition. In this volume there is no central character and as the other reviewers have noted the back and forth POV along with the inability to recognize a name at first glance result in the reader being lost in the pages, lost in the geography of Safehold, perhaps lost in space.......

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Honor Harrington novels (although the cute naming conventions are distracting. "Rob S. Pierre"? Get a grip David). But it is long past time for the good guys to track the Mesa Alignment to their lair and nuke them till they glow and move on.

Lots of action in this book but repetitive and ultimately failing to keep the reader's attention. Mr. Weber's editor needs to start earning his money and remind his author that it is easy to write at length but hard to write concisely and with focus but the result is much better writing.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too Cute By Half 20 février 2014
Par John L - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Please don't get me wrong here, because I have been a huge fan of Mr. Weber, almost since his very beginning. But I have to confess that I can only play the linguistic masochist for just so long. And this entire Safehold series, while holding initial promise, is chock full of roadblocks for the average reader. And the main culprit is the constant ability of taking simple/common names, and twisting them into something that even a typical Russian would find a bit too much.

I am just a lowly physical anthropologist, and not a linguist expert. But I know that names, like other words, tend to become simplified over time, not the other way around. Its the way languages work out. And too, why do such words as 'colonel', 'major', or other ranks remain clear and easy to understand, while a person's name is so contorted and twisted, that the reader is required to stop reading, break down the coded name, and finally stumble on, only to have to keep doing this from front to back, while keeping a set of printed out maps available, just to know where the story is currently being played out, throughout the novel.

Its simply too much for me to endure. I haven't even managed the half way point here, and have to finally say "Enough!" I can't take this any longer. Mr. Weber, you are guilty of two sins of late. First off, you are a master of bloviation. I am reminded of my attempt to wade through T.E. Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom". And too, you have turned this series into a special language course. I just don't have time any longer to read one installment, where I have familiarized myself with all the quaint names and locations on your maps. Then once finished, endure a prolonged breathing space, where I reenter the real world, and forget most of what you have forced me to adapt to. And then finally taking on another installment, where I am again forced to relearn everything, all over again. How many times must I endure this before finally realizing that you are simply being too cute by half?

The truth is that most readers read novels, including yours, in order to be entertained first and foremost. Granted some adaptation is in order. But this............this is quite simply masochism writ large. And not unlike the battered wife, who has had to endure a wayward, brutish, alcoholic husband, explain that she sticks with him because "He still loves my cooking".

Mr. Weber, it is past time for you to come back down to earth and rethink your position as a writer. Try going back and rereading your early works, and note how much easier the writing style, and then compare them to what you are currently employing. There is a world of difference in the two styles. And if not too careful, you may be writing yourself out of an unwitting following, and them not really knowing why they begin passing over your latest bible, for greener pastures.
