    I really like the basic premise of this series, making the hero an orc yes, Weber calls them hradani Any fantasy fan will recognize orcs in the hradani stereotypes That simple twist brings a refreshing and original feel to the classic fantasy world populated with dwarves, elves, halflings, and meddling gods than you can shake a stick at.The usual fantasy tropes abound, along with the usual all white cast and patriarchal society Though Weber also manages to turn that last around somewhat with the war maid society he introduces.All in all, an enjoyable read with compelling characters that avoids some of the worst cliches of the genre and has some original twists on an old story.

    I like that we re getting away from Bazhell love the guy, but he s a bit too overpowered to make his fights anything but another Dragon Ball Z episode Continue to enjoy Kerry, and the war maids so far are surprisingly restrained for a David Weber book, even if I rolled my eyes a lot at their traditional outfit of a leather kilt and an olde tymey sports bra.

    I have to admit that I ve been put off by this series for years by the ridiculous cover art I guess the old adage about book covers is true because the series has been great.

    This one was a bit of a drag through 70% of the book as the story meandered around introducing various characters and their motivations The political aspects of the story had to be laid out well before it could move forward However, the characters themselves were well written and I could appreciate the various shades of personality the writer had managed to give them individually considering the sheer number of them introduced in the book Even ones with all of a single paragraph of story to their name were written with sympathy and you felt a bit of yourself leave with them as they were hastily sent away.The arc of Kaeritha has to be the best in this volume as she investigates a local boundary dispute between a sect of woman warriors and the local lord Bahezell and Co have a pretty decent arc of their own involving the Wind riders and the Coursers who I found to be quite fascinating But there are instances where you find the champions conveniently seem to either find or already have the right power necessary for them to move the plot forward This gets a bit trite after the fourth or fifth time it happens Anyway, the epic battles three of them towards the end in all their glorious detail than make up for all the shortcomings that may have been in this book Looking forward to picking up the next one for sure.

    I thought I try one of David Weber s fantasy novels, and he did not disappoint I liked this book, with the usual reservations it could easily have been 100 pages or so shorter, and the end of the book was a bit too predictable three battles of good against evil One could see this coming early on, and I would have preferred something less obvious such as one of the battles ending in a stalemate, the capture of one of our heroes or even a loss for the good side The book also ends abruptly after the final battle, and it is clear that there is another book to come which I am tempted to read provided I can find a copy A fun summer read though.

    This is the 3rd book in the War God series by David Weber I thought that this book was a positive development in the series bringing in new characters and expanding the story line The first two thirds of the book is devoted to developing the new characters and expanding the story line while the last third is action with the characters There are great battle scenes in this one against enemies both human and demonic Overall worthwhile Reads best when in conjunction with the other books in the series.

    Product Description In The War God s Own, Bahzell had managed to stop a war by convincing Baron Tllian, leader of the Sothoii, to surrender to him, the War God s champion Now, he has journeyed to the Sothoii Wind Plain to oversee the parole he granted to Tellian and his

    Many threads to follow than the previous books so the individual heroes didn t get as much screen time as I d prefer OTOH if they did, the book would have been two or three times longer Not that there s anything wrong with that D

    Wind Rider s Oath actually seems to come together as a novel with a recognizable structure, which is nice It also starts to move away from the original main character some, which is good, because he s suffering a bad case of mudflation his powers keep growing to the point where he s basically Superman and therefore quite difficult to put in any sort of challenging spot.The characters that start to take over are much interesting I find the war maids female warrior types that basically have to live outside the bounds of their patriarchal society kind of problematic in a couple of ways, but not enough to not enjoy them And this is the first point in the series where we really start to see who the enemies are and what their motivations might be previously, they were all just puppy kicking psychopaths, which isn t all that interesting.So overall a good entry in the series, although it ends sort of midstream But I just need to record for posterity the impressive arc of my eyeroll when I realized that Our Hero was, yes, going to telepathically bond to an intelligent horse Because that s never been done before.
