Format: Hardcover
The latest installment in the Honor Harrington Series brings Honor back in to action in the Manticore fleet. With the peace still not settled between Haven and Manticore the political situation is as murky as ever. But now the andies are getting involved and the Manticoran government is really annoying their allies so it is all set for another explosion.
The treecats complicate matters again, and the conservatives use their chance to getback at their enemies, but not without it's own price!! This book sets to stage for a whole new set of problems to be faced.
This first hardback edition also comes with a CD containing electronic versions of all of David Webers novels to date, along with e-copies of books by other baen authors (friend of Honor). Even if the book weren't so good, it would be worth the investment for the CD alone.

With the Manticoran Alliance's overwhelming fleet at the throat of the People's Republic of Haven, things should have been rosy for the Alliance. But there's a new government in Manticore and they don't see any reason to call an end to hostilities. With Haven also putting a new government in place, they aren't in any particular rush either, at least initially, but eventually they wanted a proper peace treaty. However, the High Ridge government on Manticore has no intention of signing anything as it would mean ceding power to the opposition. Honor Harrington and Lord White Haven are the chief spokesmen for the opposition as cuts are introduced that would destroy Manticore's naval strength. The Manticoran government also treats its allies with contempt - not wise with the interstellar situation in an increasingly desperate situation! Now, this is a huge book by the standards of the genre and the fact that large portions of the book are made up of people talking about things rather than doing them makes things difficult for those of us who prefer our space opera to be purely about battles in space. Personally, I don't generally find this too much of a problem, though it does go rather stronger on the exposition than I would really have preferred. I had more of a problem with the utter stupidity of most of the High Ridge government - although (mostly) of aristocratic stock, therefore not having to worry about such things as being elected, they were all fairly prominent in their own parties, which means they have to have somewhat of a clue. I fear I can accept venal and corrupt, but not the depths of their utter stupidity. I have the same objections to the interactions between President Pritchard and her Secretary of State on Haven.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is rather different to most of the other volumes in Dave Weber's Honor Harrington series. I enjoyed it but some of those readers who like the other books in the series will not.

Weber has tried to develop the characters in previous books, for example now that Honor herself is a very senior admiral she cannot and does not act like a junior captain. Honor has learned different skills such as diplomacy, so there is no hitting Manticoran ambassadors or challenging people to duels in this book.

Where the previous books in the "Honorverse" were set against the backdrop of a looming or actual war between Honor's home nations (Manticore and Grayson) and successive dictatorial governments of the People's Republic of Haven, this book starts with the galaxy at peace and everyone wanting and expecting it to stay that way.

The book chronicles how Manticore's relationships with both the new democratic government in Haven and the Anderman Star Empire gradually deteriorate, and until close to the end of the book it is not clear whether Manticore will manage to avert war or have to fight the Anderman Empire, Haven, or both.

Consequently there is a much higher proportion of political manouvering than in the previous books: one cannot say whether there are any major battles without giving the ending away but one can say that there is not as much warfare as in previous books and this may disappoint some readers.

Honor Harrington has been compared by some reviewers to Horatio Hornblower and it can be quite fun spotting the references to the French Revolutionary period with which Dave Weber sprinkles the series.

Format: Hardcover
When I were a lad (s they say in these parts), I became a great fan of Hornblower, and so I was delighted to discover his spiritual descendant in Honor Harrington. I'm also a fan of David Weber's other work. On that basis, I read and rather enjoyed this latest HH volume.
I do have to say, however, that the proportions of exposition to action are increasing, and I'd prefer abit more shoot-em-up and a bit less political theory. If you're coming to the series for the first time, I'd suggest one of the others ("On Basilisk Staion" or "The Honor of the Queen") as openers. If you're already a fan, you'll probably get reasonable value, although you might feel happier waiting for the paperback.
