Book Description

3 Mar 2009 Honorverse (Book 2)
Rear Admiral Michelle Henke was commanding one of the ships in a force led by Honor Harrington in an all-out space battle. The odds were against the Star Kingdom forces, and they had to run. But Michelle's ship was crippled, and had to be destroyed to prevent superior Manticoran technology from falling into Havenite hands, and she and her surviving crew were taken prisoner. Much to her surprise, she was repatriated to Manticore, carrying a request for a summit conference between the leaders of the two sides which might end the war. But a condition of her return was that she gave her parole not to fight against the forces of the Republic of Haven until she had been officially exchanged for a Havenite prisoner of war, so she was given a command far away from the war's battle lines. What she didn't realize was that she would find herself on a collision course, not with a hostile government, but with the interstellar syndicate of criminals known as Manpower. And Manpower had its own plans for eliminating Manticore as a possible threat to its lucrative slave trade, deadly plans which remain hidden in the shadows.

By Marshall Lord TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although I really enjoyed this sequel to "The Shadow of Saganami" in the Honor Harrington universe or "Honorverse" it should come with three big health warnings

1) CLIFF-HANGER ALERT - this book has a cliff-hanger ending in which two heavy attacks, one of them a potential game-ender, are set in motion against the good guys, but you have to read Mission Of Honor (Honor Harrington)which was published in Summer 2010 to find out whether they succeed. It is obvious that the last words of the author's note which comes with this book "I should also warn you that the ride is going to get a lot rougher for the good guys over the next few books" - is a masterpiece of understatement.

If you are likely to be agonised by the wait to find out what happens, you might consider ordering this book and "Mission of Honor" together so that you can read them in sequence.

2) OVERLAP ALERT - This book continues the story of events in the Talbott Cluster (now renamed the Talbott Quadrant) following "The Shadow of Saganami" (TSOS). The main viewpoint character is Honor Harrington's friend, the Queen's cousin, Michelle Henke. Most of the action takes place in the same timespan as "At All Costs" (AAC).

A large part of the first third of this book retells events in TSOS and AAC from Michelle Henke's viewpoint. After that point, Weber, who was concerned that readers who had read those books might be bored with repetition, cut references to events previously described in AAC down to minimal outlines, just enough to fix the time frame so readers who have already read AAC will be able to tell what point in that narrative has currently been reached.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too little, too much, and no magic 31 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover
I am a huge fan of David Weber - I have all the books and love rereading them over and over. But this one just isn't as good.

Firstly too little - this is a side story in the honorverse but unlike "Crown of Slaves" (another side story in honorverse) this one has too little content directly related to itself. The interaction between the characters and the transitions between the components of this side story feel rushed - they lack the fluidity that Weber is so good at.

The reason for too little? Too much - this book contains so much build up to the next story that you get lost between which parts of the build up for the main story line and which are for this side story. There is too much going on that too little occurs in this story that is part of this story.

Like one of the other reviewers I found myself bored with this book about halfway through - and I have never had that with a Weber book before.

For me the fix needed would be to break all the plot content in this book into separate books. Spend more time fleshing out this side story - there is so much there that could be built upon. At the same time take most, if not all, of the plot elements meant for the main story line and put them into their own book, possibly even two (there is that much build up in this book).

As it is this book really disappoints. I am used to sitting down with one of Weber's books and loosing myself in the honorverse. He has shown with previous side stories ("Crown of Slaves" and "The Shadow of Saganami", of which this is a sequel) that he can do tell wonderful side stories in the honorverse that the can captivate the reader as much as his Honor Harrington stories do. So my expectations were high and thus the let down disappoints all the more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Storm from the Shadows MUST READ 17 April 2009
By Tai
Format:Hardcover
Compliments books from Honor Harrington series. well not wishing to spoil a good book, will avoid giving any details. Hehe thats the fun of reading why spoil it.

For those who, follower of the Heroine Honor Harrington, have read the latest book At All Costs (Honorverse) probably wonder what the next book of Honor series will turn up. This book builds on so many characters from that Honor series and somehow brings pieces of jig-jaw puzzle together made up of information links to characters from The Shadow of Saganami (Saganami) as well Crown of Slaves (Honor Harrington) together. Storm from the Shadows (Saganami) brings in new characters, enhances other characters created already and allows them to become heros/heroines in their own right. Perhaps they will figure more in the next Honor book which I hope the author will write in light of his views he shared with us in this book.

As I read this book, I often reflect back on what I read previous and how small pieces of information mention here and there, other characters neatly fits together with what the author has written. Love his style, depth and detail which somehow needing more repeated readings at a leisurely pace (like the others) to fully follow how much detail and depth it goes into to really build the big picture. Looking forward to seeing if the Torch of Freedom has the same consistency.
