The Safehold Boxed Set 1 includes: Off Armageddon Reef, By Schism Rent Asunder, By Heresies Distressed

“Shifting effortlessly between battles among warp-speed starships and among oar-powered galleys, Weber brings the political maneuvering, past and future technologies, and vigorous protagonists together for a cohesive, engrossing whole.” -Publishers Weekly, starred review

In David Weber’s bestselling Safehold series, humans have fled from Earth, which their enemies, the Gbaba, have left in smoldering ruins. The few human survivors rebuild on the Earth-like planet of Safehold. But the Gbaba can detect the emissions of an industrial civilization, so the human rulers take extraordinary measures to keep Safehold society medieval forever.

But 800 years later, an android from the far human past awakens and learns her fate: to provoke technological progress that has been prevented for centuries.

Off Armageddon Reef ― In a hidden chamber on Safehold, an android from the far human past awakens. Via automated recordings, "Nimue" ― or, rather, the android with the memories of Lieutenant Commander Nimue Alban is told her fate: she will emerge into Safeholdian society, suitably disguised, and begin the process of provoking the technological progress which the Church of God Awaiting has worked for centuries to prevent.

By Schism Rent Asunder Charis may control the world's seas, but it barely has an army worthy of the name. And as King Cayleb knows, far too much of the kingdom's recent good fortune is due to the secret manipulations of the being that calls himself Merlin-a being that, the world must not find out too soon, is more than human.

By Heresies Distressed The youthful Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm has wed King Cayleb of Charis, forging a single dynasty, a single empire, dedicated to the defense of human freedom. And so Empress Sharleyan faces the greatest challenge of her life, unaware of all that task truly entails.
