There are few things on this earth that I like more than spending a weekend reading a book by David Weber and/or Eric Flint. They are both masters of the writing craft. They both have a background that I feel brings different things to each. Both backgrounds compliment each other and in the end these authors have produced some of the best reading in the universe. This particular book is no exception, lots of action, lots of great characters and a great setting make this a great read that I highly recommend.
