At the very least, Safehold needs to progress to the point where the Hamilcar is no longer functional and/or no longer a danger to Charis. That is, Safehold has to reach the place where they can safely introduce and use electricity and space flight.

If the story of taking out the gbaba is never told, oh well.


I've always wondered how much Safehold would follow along the Dahak series. There are so many similarities with Cayleb's story (or more likely his heirs) and Sean McIntyre establishing a new Fifth Imperium.

As one of DW's earlier works, Mutineer's Moon references the Soviet Union of all things.

But how much the gbaba resemble the achuultani remains to be seen. It's a timely concept, biologicals being enslaved by a singularity. I've always felt that the story was rushed into 3 books and I very much enjoy what we're getting with Safehold.

I've always felt DW has an affinity for this type of story. We see parts of it in Dahak and BOLO but it's really being fleshed out here in Safehold.

Currently going through a reread of the series... and then maybe I'll reread the Stormlight archives before book 4 comes out.

Yeah that one was hilarious. Now he just needs to hurry up and let us know how it WILL end.
