The planet Safehold has not seen the advancement of technology for nearly a thousand years due to the corrupt Church of God Awaiting, which reigns supreme over the land. When one man believes he has found the technology necessary to overthrow the leaders, they turn the tables and accept what they have so long denied. Jason Culp's narration lags in places, particularly while relating Weber's lengthy descriptions, but his characters are rich and layered. Demonstrating the ability to create believable accents with little descriptive help from the prose, Culp allows listeners to lose themselves in the story regardless of its lack of narrative drive.
