The surprise ending leaves the way open for at least one more book, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the series continuing for two or possibly three more installments. Good to see you back, David.
Far from it! The political shenanigans we had in War of Honor have come to fruition and the Star Kingdom of Manticore finds itself on the defensive in its war against Haven. The diplomacy and intrigue now take a rear seat, this is good honest space warfare with Weber at his best.
The Haven offensive has forced Manticore to adopt new tactics and who best to make the enemy suffer with an understrength fleet but our very own Honor Harrington. This book is an emotional rollercoaster and if you can stay on the ride till the end you will not be disappointed.
There are new weapons, new characters and we say goodbye to a few old friends... There is murder, mayhem and missiles... and the revealing of an enemy that could be 10 times worse than Haven ever was on its worst days.
And of course when I was finished I was back to square one and waiting in pain for the next book!!!
With a timeline that continues straight on from 'War of Honor' and overlaps 'The Shadow of Saganami' those 300,000 words tell the story of Honor's war against the Republic of Haven. Like more recent books in the series, this book focuses on the politics of both star nations as they're caught up in a war neither side really want but neither side can stop as leaders and public alike find the costs unforgivably high on both sides.
This book shows an undoubtedly mature performance from Weber in his depiction of both sides' political leadership - no-one's particularly stupid or venal, nor is anyone magically able to beat the odds. Not even Honor who does pull off some superb attacks but also manages to get clobbered pretty badly herself.
Some people have expressed concern as to the increasingly larger proportion of the story that politics is taking up but given Honor's rank both in the military and society this is almost unavoidable and as I said above, Mr Weber's handling of this aspect has improved immeasurably. Of course, it wouldn't be Space Opera without space combat and you certainly get your money's worth with this book!
All-in-all, the eight hundred odd pages of the book just flew past with barely a chance to draw breath!
Weber has done it again. While ‘The Shadow of Saganami' was a book I found a little disappointing as the characterisations didn’t have the depths of his earlier works, ‘At All Costs’ has taken my breath away. I have to say, the opening chapters had me bawling my eyes out to the bemusement of those around me, ‘It’s only a book,’ they said, shaking their heads. I miss those that have gone in ‘At All Cost’ (no hints I’m afraid, read it!!), Weber was right to address that time marches on and waits for no man (or woman) and the harsh reality that the good die as easily as the bad in war. If you have been disappointed recently by his works in the Honorverse, pick this one up because you’ll either curse him for pulling all your heart strings or hug him for providing an engrossing read and a exceptional addition to the series.
Political intrigue and star battles lace this roller-coaster emotional ride as the Republic of Haven, Manticorans, Graysons and the newly created Torch go further head to head in a war that no one desires, yet unable to prevent. Poignant upheaval lies behind each chapter as Honor seeks to finally organize her life so that all her ties (emotional and political) compliment each other and consolidate her and those around her.
While fans have complained about the ever increasing political angles, it’s a little hard to avoid due to Honor’s eventual rise in rank and growth in all spheres.Read more ›
