Loved the book after having it on order for 11 months. I just wished that ATST had a set of associated removable maps. I had a hard time keeping geographical locations sorted in my mind even though I had looked closely at the digital maps provided prior to getting the book. I would happily buy ($20-$30 price tag) an associated book from some properly licensed group that shows all the military movements throughout the entire Safehold series in a manner similar to the West Point Atlas of American Wars.

Yep. That would be really nice ... Because, with only an 15"-Notebook-Display available, the digital maps don't make fun. Not really ... :(

There are some really nice revelations, some interesting developments, too ... and last but not least there is very much room for speculation around the contents for book #10 in the series ...

So, open your most favored beverage, put some popcorn or chips nearby, go in your most favored reading position, take your time and enjoy the book! ;)


Eagle eye,

I agree! I think this may be his best work yet

I agree about keeping locations (and directions of activity) clear in my mind. I would like to see smaller maps that show which direction Eastshare or the MH were moving their armies and/or navy activities... removable might be nice, or located within each chapter as needed. I also would pay extra for such a resource.
