Publisher's Summary

Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans. Prince Roger must somehow retake the empire from the men who control it before his new brother is born and his mother dies. It's an impossible task, but Prince Roger knows all about impossible tasks.

Great Ending To A Great Series

"March Upcountry" thoroughly grabbed my interest in a fascinating well told story with intimately described characters. The first book is still the best of the series, however I think "We Few" comes in a close second. The two other books in between, though also excellent, tended to get bogged down in battle after battle after battle.

In "We Few" the authors do a good job in tying the story together and the book has just enough battle tactics mixed in with well developed characters to create a brilliant ending to a great story. I'm just sorry that it's over:-( Even though "We Few" is a good book on it's own, in my opinion you need to listen to the other books first in order to be able to "feel" and "visualize" everything that is going on.The series is definitely worth the four credits.

A very good ending!

This is the last book of the series, but can be a "Stand alone" also. Moves fast and keeps on going! Prince Roger has matured.

The Conclusion(?) to the Prince Roger Series

We Few is the fourth and apparent concluding volume in the Prince Roger series from David Weber and John Ringo, though there have been rumours of a new Prince Roger book. Like the previous books in the series, We Few is excellent MilSF and a rousing good story. As an audio book, it works extremely well, with fast pace and good dialog. Stefan Rudnicki does his usual superb reading of the book, making the Audible edition even more appealing.

If you haven't read the earlier books in the series, start with March Upcountry. But be prepared to be drawn into a world that is difficult to put down and that will have you finding reasons to listen longer than you usually do. If you're a runner or other distance athlete this is the perfect series to encourage extra miles.

David Weber AND John Ringo

Military Sci-Fi doesn't get much better. I have enjoyed the entire series although this is the first audio installment I have purchased. The storyline is great, but you'd probably do better to have read at least one of the previous books to enjoy this one.

The narration is excellent with fairly minor nuances in tone and pitch for the different characters.

I sure hope this isn't the last in this series. More Roger!

love the series and wish there was more.

the Prince Rodger series is in my top 5 favorite series. I have never been a huge fan of David Weber or john ringo but put them together and they are epic. then throw in Stefan Rudnicki as the narrator on top of that who could read the phone book and make it sound great and you get pure gold. love the series and wish there was another book to the series.

Wonderful

As with most books by Weber or Ringo, the reader is left with a desire for more. This is book four, the final book of the series, but I was left hanging. The bad guy got away, and there seems be more of the story to be told. I have read the series at least four times, and now I have listened to this well done recitation. I have been fascinated by the depth of the characters, the detail that brings life to the entire story, but I still find myself with a feeling that there is more of the story still to be told.

A fitting end to the series

This is a solid end to the series. It does drag a bit at the end but the tragic tale is carried off fairly well.

TRULY FANTASTIC!

The ending was so touching . I love the last part between mother and son, it was so well done indeed. Thank you David Weber and John Ringo for writing such a truly superb sci fi/fantasy book. I like the character and the part they play in helping Prince Roger come into his own. I love the character of Prince Roger and how he developed into a strong leader. Stefan Rudnicki performed all the character wonderfully. I must admit I followed the whole series within four days for the four books. I enjoyed them all the way! I hope there will be a fifth book soon?

Superb adventure reaches a fitting climax

The final chapter in Prince Roger Mclintock's journey takes us off Marduk and back to Old Earth. This, the fourth book, is a fitting climax to the previous adventures and is perhaps the best of the four, if that is possible.
This time there is a significant element of space combat and tactics which occurs off-world - no doubt a plus for Honor Harrington fans - while the "main" action takes place on Earth.
This is basically a tale of a band of brothers held together by loyalty,integrity and love for each other; of the change from boy to man; of the change from playboy to leader inspiring devotion and sacrifice in his followers. As such it is a tale told many many times before. But in this case the context is always interesting and the variety of characters and personalities makes it fresh and compelling.
It would be unwise to read this before the first three methinks but "We few" has become one of my favourite reads, renewing my enthusiasm for exploring David Weber's creations further, while inspiring me to read some more of John Ringo's solo work for the first time.
This is just great space opera if you like to involve yourself in the complexities of intergalactic politics and military tactics as well as deeper character development and all-out visceral action by turns. This series is not to be missed.
The books are great - but just as important for an Audio book is the narration and in this case it is just brilliant and I will be searching for more work by the same narrator as well as the same authors!

Great until the last five minutes

Great book but the last five minutes of it feel rather rushed, as if running out of space or word limit.

Patients needed but well worth the listen

Any additional comments?

Having listened to this book I was most disappointed to find out that it had been Miss listed as book 1 when it is actually book 3 of 5 very good novels. Having said that it was very enjoyable and do hope that audible add books 4 and 5 to there listings. I can recommend this book to anyone but listen to books 1 and 2 first.

Good book - good series

I very much enjoyed this "Prince Roger" series and have listened to it more than once.



For fans of epic science fiction this is a good buy - although the emphasis is more on low tech than high tech.
