    I waited years for another book in this awesome series It was so worth the wait What a great read

    We waited 10 years for this Weber s weaknesses as an author are on full display here, too much infodumping, not enough actually moving the plot, ridiculously over done foreshadowing, too many minor characters nobody gives a damn about but we re getting a full description of them anyhow this may be one of the few times I agree with the common complaint about names and surprised declarations of how important something is that will n

    Finished my 2nd read of the novel so I will add a few thoughts first for an overview of the series, here is my review of Hell s gate Despite the 8 year hiatus and a change of co author, the novel RTH for short fits naturally and smoothly in the series, starting where HHNF book 2 Hell Hath No Fury ends and carrying the story to a good stopping point, not unlike the one of HG first book Hell s gate except that now it is from the oppos

    I m glad the story picks up and things progressrapidly However, like all Weber books, there are certain chapters that deal with such useless minutae and minor logistical concerns that I was forced to skimmed over them Another thing that disappointed me in this book is that the political opposition of both sides are unambiguously portrayed as evil Some nuance would have been better.

    This is the third book in the Hell s Gate series by David Weber This one is also co written by Joelle Presby It has been a long wait for this book as the first two were released in 2008 This book is what I would call Science Fiction Fantasy It has two different races of humans from two different universe s traveling from one universe to the next by the way of naturally occurring portals One group, the Sharonians, have steam power and a

    The largest portion of this novel deals with the logistics of crossing large swaths of land Which unfortunately detracts from the story rather than building up the universe Those large sections drag the narrative down in an otherwise good story.

  7. James James says:

    I like the magic versus technology theme but the heroes and villains are so black and white It also ends on a cliffhanger which given the last book was written nine years ago, is annoying You must read the previous books, it cannot be read as a standalone.

  8. MAB LongBeach MAB LongBeach says:

    The continuation of the Hell s Gate series begun in 2006 by Weber and Linda Evans After two books, the series seemed to have been abandoned now, nine years later, it continues with a different coauthor, Joelle Presby.Multiple almost identical universes are connected by a series of portals connecting disparate spots on the planets Both the Sharonans and the Arcanans have been exploring their nearby universes for hundreds of years When they mee

    I m not a fan of David Webers writing style I find it too slow and with details other people clearly appreciate, but which just gets in the way of the meat of the story I like his ideas, and have been waiting for a conclusion to this series for a while This isn t it, but it looks like the ball is rolling again.

  10. Tim Tim says:

    I really like David Weber and have read almost all of his books This book could have used some thinning, maybe up to a third of the book So many of the words did so little to move the story forward I finished the book all 600 hard cover pages of it but it was a real slogging read Otherwise it would have been a 4 star review.
