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, andmeddling 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 somewh 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, andmeddling 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

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 detailthan 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 af I thought I try one of David Weber s fantasy novels,

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

series 4 5I think that Wind Rider s Oath is my favorite in the War God series so far This is mainly because it spendstime with and introducesbadass female characters Though I love Bazhel and Brandark, it s nice to see the story get rounded out with female warriors and the War Maids The other thing I appreciate about this book in the series is that we get to explore the flying coursers and the special bonds that they make with wind riders All in all, I appreciated that we got to learn 4 5I think that Wind Rider s Oath is my favorite in the War God series so far This is mainly because it

hope that this continues in book 4 Surprised at the lower starsNot a super star 5, but it was best in series and really made the hero shine.Liked the character development and how evil is lining up against him.With deeper dive into the world development, God development, history this could be a true epic story line instead of just a good series 3.5 stars I love this series, but I think this was the weakest entry so far My complaint is that it keeps jumping back and forth between a bunch of different character groups, so the narrative is a bit disjointed But I still enjoyed it.
