By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is number eight in David Weber's main series of novels about Honor Harrington. It is the only "Honorverse" book describing events in the heroine's career which so closely correspond to the events of a particular "Horatio Hornblower" novel by C.S. Forester that an exact match can be given; this book is equivalent to "Flying Colours."

If you have not read any of David Weber's other books about Honor Harrington: this book is part of a series of space opera novels set two thousand years in the future. If you want to start reading these books, "Echoes of Honor" is not the best place to begin: these stories work best if read in sequence, so start with the first book, which is "On Basilisk Station (Honorverse)."

Despite the futuristic setting, there are strong parallels with Nelson's navy. Assumed technology in the stories imposes constraints on space navy officers quite similar to those which the capabilities of fighting sail warships imposed on wet navy officers two hundred years ago. Similarly, the galactic situation in the novels has distinct similarities to the strategic and political situation in Europe at the time of the French revolutionary wars.

This is obviously quite deliberate: many thinly veiled (and amusing) hints in the books indicate that they are to some extent a tribute to C.S. Forester, and the main heroine of the books, Honor Harrington, appears to owe more than her initials to Forester's character Horatio Hornblower.

The Honor Harrington series (sometimes nicknamed the "Honorverse") has developed a number of spin-off storylines. Stories set in this Universe fall into five groups, although they link together in a reasonably consistent manner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Honor comes back from the dead! 27 Sep 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After escaping from the clutches of Insec at the end of "In Enemy Hands" only to wind up having to land on Hell, things look pretty bleek for Honor and friends. Stuck on a planet where there's nothing to eat except what they've brought with them, down to one arm and one eye, Honor needs to get hold of a ship that can take them off planet & back to safety. On the upside though, they are on a planet full of people who have every reason to hate the current regime...
Meanwhile, Esther McQueen, the rising star on the Peeps Committee, hatches a plan to regain the initiative for the Havenites with a daring series of raids on several systems - including Basilisk. Fortunately, despite a couple of severe setbacks, the introduction of the "Harrington" class LAC carriers (the space Aircraft Carriers that Honor helped approve before being captured - despite plenty of official opposition) and Admiral White Haven's prompt action prevent the raids turning into a complete disaster.
In fact, for an Honor book there's remarkably little of her in it and those bits where she is are easily the weakest bits. Pretty much all the stuff on Hell (except the take over itself) is rather dull and very far fetched (do they really run a prison planet where the prisoners can roam free with no supervision or security cameras? I know they can't eat without their wardens providing them with food, if that's all they rely on then a well executed ambush could allow the prisoners to get hold of a shuttle - as indeed happens). In a book of over 700 pages, there's rather too much padding for my liking (having just re-read it, it's a much better book if you simply cut out most of the bits on Hell until she gets into space).
Overall, rather like the comment about Wagner's operas - it has it's moments, but some bloody awful quarter hours.

2.0 out of 5 stars A tedious series of Deus Ex Machinas 28 May 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback
We seem to have two or three stories that only have the most tangential of connections here. The Graysons have to deal with Honor apparently dying without leaving an heir. Seems a bit pointless since we know Honor is alive. We also get an entire chapter of Earl White Haven's introspection about how he is in love with Honor but feels extremely angst-ridden about it because he's married, but ultimately decides that it's actually okay to feel this way.

The second story is about Honor escaping from the prison planet and the third is the politics of the Peeps, and the preparation for a counter-attack, intertwined with the account of crew on Manticore's new LAC carrier concluding with the detailed accounts of space combat. No problem with that. Anyone who doesn't like this sort of thing won't have got this far in the series.

The problem is the part dealing with Honor. Honor is so capable that there's simply no drama. Even if there was a possibility of drama, Weber avoids it. If Honor needs something, the plot makes sure it comes her way, and Honor manages to acquire it without cost. We do have a possibility of conflict with a stuffy rear admiral but he's dealt with before he even becomes a problem. What promises to be a huge climatic battle against an unusually insightful and capable Int. Sec CO is dealt with by Honor trying a tactic that nobody has ever considered before and it eliminating the enemy before they even get a chance to fire. So, Honor makes zero mistakes, has to make no compromises and spends a few minutes wringing her hands together out of mild guilt.

4.0 out of 5 stars another good end
Nice buildup and good solid ending. On par with earlier books in structure and interest pattern. Worth keeping that in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another H.H. story
Weber is not the most brilliant of writers, style-wise but the Honor Harrington series is compulsive. I read evey one of them as soon as they're published.

The title of the book is apt because echoes of Honor is all we get. Most of the book is about other characters, characters that the author fails to make me care about. Read more

WOW-- after waiting months for the paperback version of this to come out, I've just read it, and realised that without further tales of Honor, life will be a little poorer. Read more
