This book picks up immediately where book one finished - with General Talak ordering Klag to break his word to the Children of San-Tarah. To refresh your memory, the recap is bundled up in the start of this book's main narrative - the communication Klag sends out to his fellow members of the Order of the Bat'leth.
The main thrust of the story begins, with the crew of the Gorkon preparing to fight fellow Klingons for honour.
Somehow, DeCandido has made this battle (both space and ground-based) to last the majority of the book, but at no point does it become boring or predictable.
Meanwhile, the various personal stories of some of the characters are developed - such as engineer Kurak's descent into dejectedness and wanting to leave the Defense Force, Wol's former life and a revelation about one of her squad.
Also, the theme in the Gorkon books so far that no character is safe from being killed off, continues in this book - and as with those books, you won't see them coming.
It'll be interesting to see if book three still continues the Kavrot mission or whether there will be a significant time jump to allow the dust to settle after the events of Honour Bound.
Either way, I'm already looking forward to it!
