Book Description


For Captain Honor Harrington, it's sometimes hard to know who the enemy really is. Despite political foes, professional jealousies, and the scandal which drove her into exile, she's been offered a chance to reclaim her career as an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. But there's a catch. She must assume command of a ''squadron'' of jury-rigged armed merchantmen with crew drawn from the dregs of her service and somehow stop the pirates who have taken advantage of the Havenite War to plunder the Star Kingdom's commerce.

That would be hard enough, but some of the ''pirates'' aren't exactly what they seem . . . and neither are some of her ''friends,'' For Honor has been carefully chosen for her mission—by two implacable and powerful enemies.

The way they see it, either she stops the raiders or the raiders kill her . . . and either way, they win.

    Why do so many sci-fi wargame designers seem obsessed with Q-Ships?

    I'll forgive Dave Weber this once, partly because this book does at least make clear that the damn things are death traps, but mostly because it's a wonderful book. In fact this sixth book in the Honor Harrington saga is my personal favourite of the current 18 books which Weber and his co-authors have set in the "Honorverse".

    The Honor Harrington universe or "Honorverse" is a wonderful space opera series set some three thousand years in the future and the eponymous heroine is one of David Weber's best fictional creations.

    These books are best read in sequence and I strongly recommend that you start with "On Basilisk Station (Honor Harrington)" which is the first one.

    Most of the Honor Harrington stories are full of parallels with the time of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. In particular, the Royal Manticoran Navy in which the heroine is an officer is clearly based on the Royal Navy at the time of Nelson.

    Technology of space travel and warfare in most of the Honor Harrington stories has been written so as to impose tactical and strategic constraints on space navy officers similar to those the technology of fighting sail imposed on wet navy officers two hundred years ago.

    In this book however, and unlike the rest of the early books in the series, the main naval parallels are with a 20th century situation. Honor Harrington is commanding Q-ships, e.g. vessels based on one of the most crack-brained concepts from World War One era - and considering how many weird ship designs were sent into battle in the early 20th century, that's saying something!

    Deep space. A huge, lumbering merchant vessel is bound down to a world when it's jumped by pirates. Several megatons of freighter, carrying millions in cargo, is lost.
    Needless to day, the great commerical houses and trading cartels of the Star Kingdom of Manticore are not best pleased with this situation. Unfortunately, the People's Republic of Haven is pressing heavily against the Royal Manticoran Navy, and there are no more ships to spare for escort duty. So Honor Harrington is recalled to active duty, and handed a 'squadron'. Her mission: take a bite out of the pirates affecting the trade routes into the Silesian Confederacy. No problem for a seasoned combat commander, right?
    Wrong. Here's the problems: 1) the RMN can't spare regular warships, so it's taken some large freighters and fitted them out with weapons and military-grade sensors. Unfortunately, they don't have military spec acceleration or shielding, and won't stand up to much of a pounding. 2) Personnel shortages means Honor gets stuck with new, inexperienced personnel and the dregs of the fleet. 3) The pirates are getting organized...
    One of the nice things about this novel is that we get to see something of a couple of 'lower-deckers' (like me), and how they deal with the threats, both from pirates and from some of the scumbags aboard their own ship.
    For the record, this was the first Honor Harrington novel I'd read, and I was sufficiently impressed that I went and bought the other five (at the time) books in one fell swoop. For my money, David Weber is right up there with Heinlein, Sturgeon and Drake.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Honor Harrington books, yet! 12 Aug. 1996
    By A Customer
    All of the Honor Harrington books have been outstanding, but
    David Weber has once again reached into his bag of stories and
    and given us the best Honor book yet. Unlike so many series
    writers where the character stays the same, Honor grows and is
    enriched by her experiences. Here, we see an older and wiser
    Honor who has been bloodied but unbowed by the system. As she
    continues to grow, David Weber leaves us saying "What a remark
    able woman!"and leaving us breathless to see the next install-
    ment of her legacy. Honor has great virtues, great insecuri-
    ties, and an extraordinarily well developed sense of leader-
    ship. She and Nimitz (her treecat) are so well developed that
    they become living breathing persons in their own rights. If
    only we could invite them to stop by for a drink and some
    story swapping. I'd even lay in a supply of fresh celery for
    Skye M. Barnes, Capt. USAF Ret.

    Honor Harrington, the celestial Horatio Hornblower Captain of the Royal Manticoran Navy is finally offered the opportunity to once again don the white beret of starship command. In this sixth novel, Honor assumes the task of commanding a rag-tag fleet of Q-ships (armed merchants) to try to discourage the piracy against Manticoran merchants in the Silesian quadrant. She is hampered, as always, by enemies on both sides. Like the other books, this novel occurs mostly from Honor's viewpoint, but you can take delight as many of the secondary characters are fleshed out as well. An added treat is the appearance of a female treecat, which gives the author more opportunity to enlighten us on the background of the species and its link with mankind. This novel, like the others, leaves you hanging onto the edge of your seat and swearing that your beloved characters won't make it out alive! A must read for Honor fans!
